Both Rolex and Patek Philippe are holding off on the release of new products for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Robb Report.

In both cases, the delays reportedly could last through the end of the year.

Rolex had planned to unveil new products at the end of the April, given the cancellation of Baselworld, which had been scheduled for March.

At this point, “we have not currently identified new timing for our releases,” the company was quoted stating.

“Our priority at this time is to stand by the people with whom we work and to bring help and support in the best way possible.”

The Robb Report explains that Patek Philipp has not made a formal statement.

Whether the brands decide to release their new products at Baseworld 2021 or in some other format could determine whether the troubled trade show survives, the website notes.

Both Rolex and Patek Philippe have temporarily shut down manufacturing operating in response to the pandemic.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
