Sir Roger Moore’s Rolexes: Beyond the “Buzz Saw” Submariner

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

The passing of Sir Roger Moore represents a truly sad time for the millions of fans who grew up wishing to someday emulate his ultra-suave and equally deadly James Bond. Those who also count themselves as watch enthusiasts know that beyond bringing 007 into the modern era when he took over from Sean Connery with 1973’s Live and Let Die, he holds the further distinction of having worn one of the most interesting and important Rolex watches ever on screen.

Driving the Awesome New AMG GT C Roadster with the Rolex Daytona 6263 “Big Red”

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

We’ve mused before on pairing vintage Rolex sports watches with modern supercars, but rarely do we get to test the move with such panache as our recent excursion in the incredible new AMG GT C Roadster. New for 2018, the sexy-as-hell convertible sits at the pinnacle of Mercedes-Benz’s sports car range; the 550 hp fireball can do 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 196 mph. You might think that a modern Rolex Daytona would suit the car to a tee, and you wouldn’t be wrong in that, but there’s something a bit more elegantly daring in opting for a vintage model instead.

Bob’s Spotlight: The Yellow Gold and Blue Submariner ref. 1680/8

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

The Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 brought about several “firsts” for the brand. The Rolex 1680 made its debut in the late 1960s and it was the first Submariner to include the date function. In addition to the new date window at 3 o’clock, it also had the now famous Cyclops lens attached to the crystal for optimal legibility. Since this is a vintage Rolex, the dial is topped with an acrylic crystal. Join us as we dig into what makes this vintage Rolex diving watch so special.

If there’s one type of timepiece that Rolex does best, it’s their men’s gold watches. Not only is the gold Rolex is a universal symbol of success and prestige, often times it’s as good as cash too! While there are plenty of gold models within Rolex’s catalog, here are some vintage beauties that currently have our attention.

The Rolex Cosmograph History

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

The Daytona has become synonymous with Rolex chronographs; however Rolex was manufacturing watches with chronograph movements for several decades before the Daytona name became a mainstay in their catalogue. Rolex first started experimenting with mechanical chronographs during the 1930s, but it was not until 1963, with the introduction of the reference 6239, that an actual name was given to their chronograph watch line.

This Is the Real Problem with Collecting Vintage Watches

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

In recent years there has been a significant increase in the level of interest in vintage watches. While their unique, era-specific designs offer buyers a wide range of different sizes, styles, and materials, there is also a certain collectable aspect to “antique” element of vintage timepieces that many find appealing.

Vintage Rolex Watches

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

What do you think when you hear the word ‘vintage?’ Do you think antique? Something that’s older than you are? Maybe something that’s outdated, like a wall-mounted phone, a record player, that sort of thing? Well, when it comes to watches nobody passed a law on the definition of the word, but accepted rules of thumb are 25 to 30 years old and older. (A good working definition for ‘antique’ is 100 years old and older.)
