Review: Rolex Daytona vs Omega Speedmaster Ceramic
It’s a fast-moving world. Child pop star Justin Bieber is now in his mid-twenties, the iPhone is over a decade old and Barack Obama has been out of office for over a year. For luxury brands, it’s becoming more important than ever to stay relevant and fresh. So, as Rolex, a watchmaker that sees evolution and revolution as synonymous, takes its time to give the public what it wants, there’s an opportunity presented for other brands to catch up. But has that already happened?
Review: Tudor Prince Date vs Rolex Daytona
Everyone wants a Rolex Daytona. Everyone, even if they won't quite admit it to themselves. Where other watches sit in categories with similar contemporaries, the Daytona has somehow forged a class of its own. It's flashy without being gaudy, it's expensive without being obnoxious, it's different without being offensive. With the now-discontinued 116520 fetching anywhere from £10,000 and rising, for many, it is and always will be out of reach. But what if you could have one for £3,000? Or, at least, the very next best thing?
Feature: Rolex Daytona vs Zenith El Primero
The Daytona comes up a lot on this channel, and for obvious reasons: it's one of the best-known watches ever made, from perhaps the best-known watchmaker in the world. It's also the last Rolex to ever use a movement that hails from outside of the Rolex family—the calibre 4030, based on Zenith's El Primero 400. That was in the Daytona 16520, the model that gave us this new, sleek and oh-so popular shape. 1988 it came out, and it's become very collectible since Rolex discontinued the calibre 4030 in favour of the in-house 4130. Why then, should you want one when you can quite simply walk into a shop now and buy an El Primero straight from Zenith for a fraction of the price?
Review: Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 6263
With Paul Newman's Daytona recently selling for $17.8 million, it's hard to believe that anything with the words 'Rolex', 'Daytona' and 'vintage' in it could possibly be anything other than a sought-after collector's item. It may surprise you, however, to learn that the vintage Rolex Daytona was actually one of the most unpopular ranges Rolex has ever made.
Brand Focus: Rolex
There’s no question about it—Rolex is the best known, most recognisable and biggest name in watchmaking. It’s a surprise to find out that Rolex is one of the younger watchmakers out there, its paltry century of watchmaking a mere blip on the horological calendar in comparison to the near three centuries of the likes of Blancpain. But despite the scrutiny the brand receives, despite the huge amount of awareness it has generated over the years, there are still a handful of lesser-known facts about the five-pointed crown that might surprise you. Join us as we rummage through the closet of the world’s number-one watchmaker.
News: Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116508 and 116503
So far, 2016 has been an exciting year for devotees of the much-loved Daytona. Not only did Rolex unveil the long-awaited 116500N steel model with a black ceramic bezel last month, but the luxury brand has also released new bi-metal and all-gold versions of this classic chronograph for us all to delight in.
Review: Rolex Daytona 116500LN
Usually when you receive a gift, it’s one of two kinds. The first often comes in the form of a set of day-of-the-week underpants or an autobiography by the world’s most tedious celebrity. The second is the rarer sort, the present that you’ve been dropping hints as subtle as a sledgehammer for, but never dared hope you might receive. At this year’s Baselword, Rolex gave us the latter variety. The Cosmograph Daytona 116500 LN is the watch we’ve been waiting with bated breath for—the brand’s classic racing chronograph updated with a black cerachrom dial.
News: Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
It's that time of year again—Baselworld 2016 is upon us. The prestigious watch and jewellery fair will open its doors tomorrow, and the watch world is abuzz with talk of what’s hot and what’s not—but Rolex has truly brought joy to the masses with an update to one of it’s most beloved models.
Clocks and watches were used, are used and always will be used to display the never-ending movement of time. But say you're an avid fan at the 1821 races and you need to know precisely how long it is between the horses leaving the start line and crossing the finish line, what then? Oh, and you're Louis XVIII, King of France, too. I'll tell you what you do. You commission the invention of the chronograph.
Feature: 3 Underrated Bargains
Ever caught yourself looking at a watch that’s well out of budget, thinking, ‘What if?’, only to mentally slap yourself back to harsh reality? Those most exquisite and expensive timepieces may forever be consigned to only the wildest dreams, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get something rather special for the price of a mid-range Breitling. Here are three underrated watches that offer exceptional watchmaking for much less than you’d expect.
Feature: 3 Watch Collection For Less Than A Rolex Submariner
A time-only, non-date Rolex Submariner in steel will cost you, today, £5,450. You don’t need me to tell you that this is a sizeable amount of money—enough to start wondering if it’s worth getting several cheaper watches instead. Is it possible to get a varied, three-watch collection of high-quality watches for the budget? Well, we’ve certainly had a go; here it is, a three-watch collection for less than the price of an entry level Submariner.
Feature: 3 Clever Dive Watches
The International Organisation for Standards, under ISO 6425, states that a recognised dive watch should meet the following requirements: a unidirectional bezel with five minute markers; clearly distinguished minute markings on the dial; readability at 25cm in total darkness; shock, chemical and magnetic resistance; an operational indicator; oh—and of course, a 100-metre depth rating. This covers the bare minimum to qualify—but what if watchmakers went above and beyond?
Feature: 3 Watches You’ve Never Even Heard Of
For someone looking for a sporty watch in steel, chances are they will probably pick up a Rolex Submariner, perhaps a Panerai Luminor if they’ve got a hankering for something a bit more exotic. But what if you don’t want to contribute to this sea of Submariners, want something less common than the lagoon of Luminors. If you’re one of those people, then take note, because here are three watches you’ve probably never even heard of.
