...Rolex Studio Shot Of The Day... Julian's Rolex Prince



Rolex Prince, Princess & Queen

The original Art-Deco Rolex Prince models are always interesting and elegant as we see with this first photo from Julian. Rolex was obviously fascinated with Royalty, by offering Queen, Princess and Prince models, but ironically they never offered a Rolex King. That being said, the Rolex crown logo was a King's Crown, and years later they introduced a Rolex Air-King model.

When people think about iconic Rolex models, they typically think about enduring models like the Rolex Submariner and Rolex Daytona. When they think about vintage models, they think about Rolex Bubbleback and Prince Models.

Many vintage Rolex collectors are familiar with the Rolex Prince, but not that many are familiar with the Rolex Princess models, as seen in the 1930 Rolex add below. In the future, I plan to do a detailed history of the Rolex Prince & Princess models. Exploring the evolution of Rolex watches is fascinating, especially The Evolution Of The Female Rolex Archetype. Studying this history inevitable leads to How Women Began Wearing Men's Rolex Watches.

Rolex also offered Rolex Queen models as seen in the 1932 Rolex magazine advertisement below.
