Hands on review of the Rolex Explorer II 226570

Avatar
foversta
The new versions of the Explorer II were highly anticipated because Rolex had, as usual, prepared the ground well by arousing interest and curiosity through a teasing video unveiled one week before the digital edition of Watches & Wonders 2021. Because even without indicating the name of the model, the video presented an unambiguous context (with the evocation of caving) as well as the effect of the luminescence of the dial. There was no longer any doubt as to which model was involved, and April 7, 2021 became ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925

Avatar
foversta
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight quickly became one of Tudor's flagship models. Its contained size, the neo-retro vibe, the Submariner Big Crown 7924 inspiration, all contributed to the watch's undeniable charm and immediate success with both watch enthusiasts and a more "mainstream" clientele. Following its introduction in 2018 with a black-dialed reference with guilt details, Tudor introduced a Navy Blue declination two years later that offers a different atmosphere, both sleeker and perhaps more contemporary. .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2021: Tudor Black Bay Fifty Eight Yellow Gold and... Silver!

Avatar

An interesting offer, here: The daring Black Bay Fifty Eight in yellow gold: And in silver! Both have the good taste to be in 39 mm, as silver and gold weight quite a bit. So, for me, it is a good idea. While the yellow gold is cool, here we have another green dial. The silver is colder but more my taste, with its taupe dial...Story

Hands on review of the Rolex Explorer II 216570 white dial

I wished to come back to the Rolex Explorer II 216570 white dial, which is certainly not a new model, but which still has a special place in the Rolex catalog almost 10 years after its presentation at the 2011 edition of Baselworld. In fact, there are two fundamental reasons that explain its singularity. The first is its aesthetics and the second is related to the nature of its movement. Clearly inspired by the 1655 reference as evidenced by its third orange hand, the Rolex Explorer II 216570 white dial remains .....Story

Rolex GMT MASTER 6542. THE census.

Avatar
amanico
The GMT MASTER 6542 is a relatively rare watch. How many were produced, it is hard to say, but if you keep in mind that, according to Rolex is a document dated from December 1959, only 605 of them were imported in the US, we can reasonably guess that for the rest of the world, you can multiply per 4 or 5 the production and sales of this reference, during its life ( 1954 / 1959 ) The Rolex document in question: So, we had circa 2500 / 3000 ( once again, it is a guess estimate ) Rolex 6542 made, which is too ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Tudor Black Bay 58 Navy Blue

Avatar

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
