Current model GMTs - what is you cup of T?

Taste is a fickle beast. What works for one person is anathema to another. Bottom line is that there is, and never can be, a definitive right or wrong when it comes to personal taste. Similarly, the reasons why one person buys a watch is, by definition, unique to that person...Story

My collection of modern Rolex, and my projects.

By modern I mean from the 90's to nowadays, the Rolex before the 90's are neo vintage for me. So, what do I have? The Daytona 16520: The Explorer II 16570: The Yacht Master 16222: The Milgauss 116400 GV: And the Air King 2016 Edition, the 116 900: The funny thing I noticed is that in that selection, there are only Un-Rolex references. At the exception of the Daytona 16520, of course. But the others are not typical Rolex: The Milgauss and the Air King are totally crazy with their splashes of colors...Story

Last Thursday, it was decision time between the Daytona 116500 and the 116519. I am attaching below my original deliberation between the two watches. I had narrowed the choice down to these two for many reasons. Ultimately, I needed to make a choice...Story

Tudor Submariner 7923.A review of one of the rarest if not THE rarest reference from Tudor.

Avatar
amanico
Some months ago, there was a listing on Ebay about a Tudor 7923. This very same watch has been auctioned and a watch dealer from California got it. And re sold it. This is this very same watch I was very lucky to see in the metal, some days ago, in Paris, as it is now one of my friend's property...Story

Rolex Daytona - 116500LN..... "whattya gonna do"?

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
I have taken the decision to add a modern chronograph to my collection and decided to take a look within Rolex. In making that decision, I decided to have a read through the official Rolex literature describing their Cosmograph Daytona range. To quote the official Rolex blurb about the Cosmograph Daytona……… “introduced in 1963, was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. With its highly reliable chronograph and bezel with tachymetric scale, it allows drivers to perfectly measure average .....Story

Welcome to the big Tudor Black Bay fashion show!

Marcus Hanke
When I purchased the Tudor Black Bay Steel + Gold two weeks ago, a major factor in my immediate fascination for that watch came from the pre-aged leather strap that perfectly matched the matte golden elements of the case itself. Unfortunately, it was rather short, so I decided to order one in XL, which will take its time to arrive, unfortunately. Packed in the watch box also came a very nice NATO strap: This, too, is suffering from the length issue, but I did not order a longer original strap, since the after ... ...Story

The formidable strategy from Rolex and Tudor about their GMT watches in steel

Avatar
foversta
Many observers were surprised by the simultaneous presentation of the Rolex GMT Master II in steel with red and blue Cerachrom insert and the Tudor Black Bay GMT with matt burgundy and blue anonised aluminium insert (you can note the different chromatic terminologies). These two watches obviously evolve in different segments but have a certain family look, reinforced by the colors of their respective bezels. Why the decision to release these two watches during the same edition of Baselworld was taken when ... ...Story

Rolex : Baselworld 2018 Review

"I just wanna Rolly Rolly Rolly, My Rolly don't tick tock, it just glide" Rolex, expect the unexpected. At this moment the company could be said to be in extremely rude health. You can not for love nor money it seems get a sports "Rolly" maybe unless you are rapper, tennis player or famous Golfer perhaps. Maybe all the brand ambassadors took them? So the big news, Pepsi, not Coke (the drinkable type)...Story

"Just Three Watches" for Vintage Rolex

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
Going from modern to vintage is not so easy. Picking three Rolex from the current listed watches was not as hard as I thought it might be. Going through the same process for vintage Rolex has proven much harder. Firstly, should I use the same criteria for selection? Secondly, how should I define vintage as an era? Taking modern as anything from the current list was an easy definitional choice...Story

A three watch collection from the current Rolex range

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
As we approach Basel and the anticipation of what Rolex will unveil for 2018, it occurred to me that it would be a useful process to take a look at the current range and pose a question: If I could have just three watches from the current collection, what would they be and why? The exercise here is to create a three-watch collecion from the current range. As I approached the website, it struck me just how diverse the offering from Rolex is. It is enormous. It has something to match the taste of most...Story
