Selling primarily on Kickstarter, the company has gone through a number of design iterations to land on the Expedition, a watch designed to take you to the farthest reaches of the Earth and/or the copier down the hall.

    It’s not hard to beat Rolex, Apple

    A collective Internet gasp went up yesterday when, once again, the Apple Watch beat most major watch companies in terms of revenue. It’s not surprising not that the Apple Watch outsold Rolex and Omega and other luxury watch makers. What is surprising is that Rolex and Omega are still fighting this losing battle. Think about the Rolex market, for example. While I would wager that almost… Read More

    Breitling’s Avenger Hurricane 45 watch uses dense composites to stay light

    According to horological legend the first luxury watch made of steel – the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak caused great consternation when it launched in 1972. Up until then there were timekeepers – small, cheap watches like Timex and Seiko – and expensive pieces that you handed out at retirements from brands like Rolex and Patek Philippe. To build a luxury watch in steel was… Read More

    Bob’s Watches Streamlines The Rolex Market With An Electronic Exchange

    As a watch nerd, I love to see the stuffy old watchmaking industry try new things. That’s why I was intrigued by the recent changes at Bobs Watches, a retailer turned website that buys and sells Rolex watches using a very simple exchange model. Read More

    Sheer Magnetism, Darling: You Can Own James Bond’s Buzzsaw Rolex

    Live And Let Die was one of the most gadget-filled Bond movies, featuring a Rolex watch with built-in high intensity magnetic bullet shield and buzzsaw as well as robotic voodoo figures and a taxi that enclosed the rider in a cage of bulletproof glass.

  • Rolex Explorer 2 Watch For 2011

    For 2011 Rolex offers a new Explorer 2 to follow up last year’s new Explorer. While the Explorer was bumped up to 39mm last year, the Explorer 2 is the Rolex sport watch with a modern size of 42mm in width. That is 2mm larger than the Sumbariner, and it likely wears better than the 43mm wide Submariner Deep Sea. Read More

The seller, a guy named Bob, bought a Rolex watch on the Kwajalien Atoll from a Navy Exchange fifty-two years ago and he wore it almost every day for forty years.

  • Get you a CIA Rolex

    Did you know: CIA agents wear Rolex watches so they can “trade” their way out of sticky situations! That’s why an unnamed CIA agent bought this watch in Europe back in 1977 and now it can be yours. When you buy the watch you get the CIA agent’s name and maybe, just maybe, some of that CIA cool will rub off on you. Or maybe you’ll be mistaken for an agent and taken… Read More

  • Rolex will never do a phone, LG or otherwise

    I may not be a smart man, but I do know watch companies and there is no way Rolex and LG are teaming up to make a phone. It appears that TechDigest got to see a “Rolex” mock-up at an LG design facility with a real Rolex watch embedded in the phone face. Rolex has too much time, money, and goodwill invested in its brand to even consider trying something like this — let Armani… Read More
