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

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

Rolex: Identifying a Top 10 "Daily Wearer" from the neo-vintage era 1990-2010

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
Over the course of 2018, I wrote a number of articles that aimed to put together a list of Rolex that were no longer in production but were from the post 1990 era. The aim was to identify watches that are cool in their own right, great references, modern and robust, but with a twist - an element of rarity. To my mind, it was marrying the concept of a daily wearer with a twist. I wanted my “most desirable” list to be priced in a $5000-$20000 range, with the majority of the watches in the bottom half of that .....Story

24th of February 2019: My first birthday with the Rolex Air King 116 900.

Avatar

Why do we often say that watches are more than watches? Here is a story which demonstrates the reason behind that statement. On the 24th of February, I was in Spain, Valencia, for some days with my daughter. Just to spend some time with her and to grab a watch she and I love a lot, the rolex Air King. One month before, I was at the Roissy Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris, and I saw the Air King in the window display of the Rolex AD...Story

Baron - Mr Red
It has been a long time since I took some fresh pictures of my 1665 Mk2. I have owned this watch for almost a decade now. When i bought it, the dial was black with the very slightest hint of dark brown. 10 years later, as has happened to many Mk2 1665s, the dial has turned a gorgeous and even brown...Story
