Hands on review of the Tudor Black Bay 58 Navy Blue

Avatar
foversta
The least that can be said is that Tudor has remained focused on its subject in 2020. If I set aside the recently introduced Tudor Royal, which is dedicated at this stage to the Asian market, the brand has unveiled only one worldwide novelty this year: the Black Bay 58 Navy Blue. It is, as its name indicates, a variation of the Black Bay 58 with a black dial that was presented two years ago. The Black Bay 58, it's a bit as if Tudor went to the end of the logic...Story

Rolex 2020 novelties: Part 2 (Oyster Perpetual and Sky-Dweller)

Avatar
foversta
As stated in the first part, this year Rolex has gone well beyond the "simple" renewal of the Submariner collection. In fact, the new features of the Oyster Perpetual are certainly even more important from a strategic point of view for the brand. Indeed, this collection, due to its wide range of available diameters and a varied choice of colour dials, plays an essential role in the catalogue. It appeals to both men and women in any market...Story

Rolex 2020 novelties: Part 1 (Submariner)

Avatar
foversta
When Rolex presented a complete collection of new models on 1 September, the size of which differs little from that of a "normal year", it immediately answered a question: no, 2020 is not a transition year and this late presentation did not lead the brand to reduce its volume of new models. Submariner, Datejust, Oyter Perpetual, Sky-Dweller, these collections are either renewed or completed, which finally testifies to an active year. It is the symbol of the Rolex way of doing things. Whatever the circumstances, .....Story

I shared the story of my Rolex Air King 116 900 several times. How I almost bought it, then how I bought it, how it was stolen to me two weeks after, and how I was gifted it due to the incredible generosity of this community of ours. The link is here: This is a special watch to me. First of all, because it was love at first sight when it was unveiled in 2016...Story

Vintage Rolex Booklets - Spotting the fakes

Avatar
Bill
Vintage Rolex booklets are great part of a full set. It adds another dimension to how the watch was intended to be used. The booklets are half owners manual and half advertising presentations. Sometimes we are lucky to find full sets from original owners and those are the standards that we go by...Story

Tudor Submariner 7924 Big Crown. The first pictures I took and a story about this watch.

Avatar
amanico
I found the very first pictures I took when I finally convinced the owner to sell this Tudor 7924 to me. And immediately, the feelings resurfaced and also the story behind it. I remember how I harassed him for months before he decided to let it go. And how excited I was to finally get it! Can you imagine? There were not that many made, in 1958, which is the only year of production, in the last quartal, moreover...Story

Let's come back on the Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi Jubilee 126710blro

Avatar
foversta
The problem with the Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi unveiled during the 2018 edition of Baselworld is that it symbolizes the speculation that surrounds virtually all professional stainless steel models from the brand with the crown. In fact, it crystallizes all the positive or negative comments, generating very excessive reactions. My purpose is not to try to explain the reasons why we are facing this situation. Is it the fault of Rolex, of the retailers, of the customers with sheep-like behavior, of the low interest .....Story

Baselworld 2019: Rolex

Avatar
foversta
Despite its significant production, Rolex presents finally few novelties every year. The ratio of number of novelties / annual overall production must be among the lowest in the industry. A sign doesn't deceive: when I leave Basel, I have a clear vision of what Rolex has presented. On the other hand, I find it difficult to recall with the same precision what the other actors with important production volumes presented...Story

Baselworld 2019: Tudor

Avatar
foversta
Tudor did it as usual this year at Baselworld: simply and efficiently. In fact, Tudor always aims to find a good balance between the "talking pieces" and commercial watches dedicated to volume markets, while limiting the number of novelties. This year is no exception to the rule, with the new pieces are focusing exclusively on the Black Bay collection with a heavy trend: the two-tone style. I invite you to discover the watches that make up this collection 2019...Story
