The world of watches is an interesting one, with THE exhibition of the industry, BaselWorld, taking place in March accompanied by a flurry of activities on magazines and watch blogs. But new arrivals showcased during BaselWorld typically only start appearing in shops from June onwards, at the earliest. So while this piece might seem long overdue, it's actually quite timely.

We can’t help denying that it is with a ripple of excitement that we unveil the BaselWorld 2017 watches from Vostok Europe. Let’s dive in for a quick look at the new collections.

Energia

The Energia is without a doubt the major release for Vostok Europe in 2017. After making its debut 9 years ago, Vostok Europe has re-released the Energia with several updates such as an integrated helium release valve, a tritium pearl encased in a sapphire capsule on the rotating bezel, tritium tubes laid in v-shaped reflective holders for maximum illumination and a set of redesigned lugs.

Energia PVD

Energia Bronze

Energia Stainless Steel

The Energia is currently available in stainless steel, PVD or bronze cases. Each Energia watch comes in its very own XL dry box, which can be repurposed as a watch storage case, strap changing tool and a set of leather and silicone straps.

Lunokhod

The multi-functional Lunokhod 2 gets a cleaner dial layout, thanks to its new movement, the S. Epson YM86. The movement features a perpetual calendar with date, month and leap year indication on the inner chapter ring, a day register, a 24-hour chronograph and an alarm function. The multi-functional Lunokhod 2 is available in PVD Yellow, Stainless Steel Yellow and Stainless Steel Orange.
