THE BEST VINTAGE ROLEX FORUMS

In addition to engaging with our vintage Rolex experts, we have put together a list of what we believe to be some of the best vintage Rolex forums to consider using to research additional information.

Watchtalkforums.com

As of February 2017, there are over 1,000 unique posts in relation to vintage Rolex questions. This forum does require you to register to create new posts or respond to pre-existing ones, but this helps improve the user experience of this forum, as users are then able to accumulate a reputation among other forum users.

Forums.timezone.com

TimeZone is a forum with great resources on vintage Rolexes, moderated by Will Colosimo. Like many other forums in this space though, you are not allowed to discuss buying or selling watches. But that's alright though because Bob's Watches can help you get the fair market price for your vintage timepiece, negating the need to post to forums of this nature.

Vintagerolexforum.com

Vintage Rolex Forum is administered by a group of moderators to help ensure the best user experience and most accurate information is being published to their site. This forum is not to be used for advertising, selling or promoting products or businesses though. There is a lot of information to be found within this forum, but you are limited to a very simple search box, which might make it difficult for some to find the information they need.

Watchuseek.com

Watchuseek is one of the more commonly used forums you will find, but it may be a bit more difficult to find information on vintage information in general due to how they have structured their forum.

 

 

 

The History of Rolex

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex has been at the forefront of watchmaking since the early 20th century. Throughout its rich history, Rolex has given the world of horology a number of significant inventions such as the first waterproof wristwatch in 1926, the first automatic watch movement with a perpetual rotor in 1931, the first automatic wrist chronometer with a date window on the dial in 1945, the first diving watch waterproof to 330 feet deep in 1953, and the first wristwatch to show both the date and day written in full on the dial in 1956.

Today, with watches like the Datejust, Day-Date, Submariner, GMT-Master, Daytona, and others, Rolex is the leading luxury watch brand by far. And given the company’s focus on excellence, innovation, and prestige, it’s safe to say that they will continue to be for a long time to come.
