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

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

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

Identifying future classic Rolex from the 1990-2018 era - Part 6/6: Rolex Submariner 168000

Baron - Mr Red
The Rolex Submariner 168000 represents a different style of addition to the “future classic” concept. The 168000 is, in fact, essentially identical to the Submariner 16800 that had been produced in very high numbers. The 168000, however, differs in two very specific ways that make it one of the rarest production Submariners ever made. Not “THE” rarest, but certainly one of them...Story

Another Crown enters my collection – Rolex 14060M LGF

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
My very first “real watch” was a Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600… Another early in to the collection watch was the Explorer II 16570. Since then a lot of different watches, but not many Rolex… I never considered myself as a Rolex collector, but I always thought I should have a Submariner. A true classic that I think, even if looks are similar to the Sea-Dweller, it holds its own charm! Problem is to find the right one, the vintage train left the station long time ago… Moderns are too chunky and square for my taste... .....Story

While visiting my hard disc, I fell on pictures featuring some of my vintage Rolex watches with box and papers. Not that owning a full set the most important thing, when it comes to vintage, as a nice watch is everything, but it is a plus which is quite rewarding and a pleasant " bonus ". So, I started to make an inventory, and to check what I have and what I miss. GMT MASTER: 6542: I have the certificate and the warranty, I miss the tough to find box and the booklet...Story

October 2008 / October 2018. 10 years spent together. October 2008: The Rolex Seadweller 16660, aka Triple 6, was my first and still is my only Seadweller. I was always running after a nice 1665, Double Red or Rail Dial, but I could never find nor fund it...Story
