What’s Hot

Men’s late 1970’s and 1980’s Rolex Datejust and Date models.

Datejust White Dial

Datejust with White Dial

Debuting in the 1950s, the 1970’s and 1980’s Date models offered four key updated features that significantly changed the shape of the Datejust from its original design. For example, a new 3135 movement was built to accommodate the quick-set feature. This gave the watch a smaller profile, a new case, and new dial design. The Datejust has become the classic face of the Rolex franchise and, over 50 years after it was introduced, remains a highly sought after Rolex model. Offering durability and a sleek look, it is no surprise Date models are still in demand.

Since the 1880’s, Omega watches have provided consumers with several progressively advanced timepieces. Celebrated for their elegant yet sporty design, Omega watches have been seen gracing the wrists of celebrities like Nicole Kidman and Olympian Michael Phelps. If you are looking for a great timepiece that offers sophistication with a sporty edge, opt for an Omega sports watch for men.

What’s Not

Rolex Yachtmaster II’s in Steel & White Gold

Rolex Yacht-Master II

Rolex Yacht-Master II

While the stainless steel and rose gold or yellow gold models of the Rolex Yacht-master II are currently trending, the stainless steel and white gold combination is not. This could be due to the higher price of white gold, or the desire for a higher level of contrast in materials.

Bubble Back Watches

Rolex Bubble Back

Though traditionally a popular collector’s item, Bubble Back watches have seen a decrease in interest lately. While historically significant, Bubble Back watches generally only display the time. Many collectors now opt for more modern and significant features.
