They are going to come out with steel versions of all the watches that are made in precious metals only at this time.

PP and all other luxury watch brands will decide to postpone new releases until 2021. Global recession, closed boutiques and difficulty distributing merchandise will make it futile and insensitive to announce new models.

Like a white gold?

They may do another colour dial? Black? Surprising if they carry only the blue forward in the steel 5711.

They may well be partially valid. Troubled times call for a rethink.

I think the combination of YG on black dial looks sharp.

This years Basel watches wiii be revealed in September/October and be released immediately (this is when they tend to start showing up at ADs anyway )- that way they can stay on track for 2021 May Basel or whatever

There will be absolutely no changes to when or what they release compared to the original plans.

And we all already know when they will release the pieces to the press and public.

I think that’s possible- but if sticking a green colored dial at a minimum or continuing with watchs that are already being produced helps increase turnover, why wouldn’t they want to pull forward demand as much as possible?

The timing will probably matter as well - if April 30 the pandemic curve is sloping Downward it will be much easier.
