Rolex


A very cool little read about some key dates and times in the history of the development of the Wristwatch from the first wristwatch created in 1868 until the present. Was just emailed this by Borro, and its a short read, but very interesting. Shows how some of the brands we see today such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Cartier and even Swatch contributed to the evolution of the Wristwatch as we know it today:

I combed throught the Basel Footage on eBay and selected a few of what I thought were the more interesting videos to give my readers an idea of what it was like at Baselworld and to pick out some of the Breitling related videos as well as other videos that are probably more interesting to Breitling collectors and enthusiasts. Rolex put out a slightly revamped Daytona and a slightly revamped GMT-II Master… nothing too special there. Anyway, take a look at a few of the picks and enjoy!

Another video that I have not had the chance to post yet… a review of a Rolex Ladies Datejust that was purchased for a friend of mine. This is a beautiful ladies watch with some fantastic lines and a beautiful mother of pearl dial that just about any lady would be proud to wear. Beautiful two-tone piece with stainless steel and yellow gold dubbed “Rolesor” by Rolex.
