LV Rolex Submariner...

What a good looking Rolex.  Clean, simple, timeless lines...



Shazam Second Hand Vintage Milgauss...

If you were wondering where the Shazam, lightning bolt second hand came from on the new Milgauss, here it is:

Yellow Gold Rolex Yacht-Master with Blue Dial...

Since its introduction the Yellow Gold Yachtmaster with the blue dial has been one of my favorite Rolex watches.  I think the Yachtmaster body has the best curves of any Rolex.

I have seen this watch with a newer dial with Maxi Markers and it looks great.

1993 Rolex Gold Bar Brochure...

Leo, the Idle Swede, sent in this great Rolex Oyster carved from a solid bar of gold shot from a 1993 Rolex Brochure.

Every Rolex Oyster is carved from a single solid piece of the highest quality metal.

Ana Ivanovic Congratulations on Rolex.com

The Official Rolex Website at Rolex.com keeps getting better and better over time, just like the watches. I have been watching it over the years and it is amazing how great it is getting.

This Congratulatory Image of Ana Ivanovic wearing her stainless Rolex Daytona while holding up her 2008 French Open Trophy is stunningly gorgeous. Ana Ivanovice just won her first Grand Slam Tiltle of Tennis. Just beautiful!!!

Pepsi Rolex Bakelite Bezel on GMT Master...

The bezel on this vintage Rolex GMT Master was made from Bakelite which tends to crack as it gets older.  So rolex went from Bakelite, to screen printed Steel.

Screen printed steel can fade if exposed to UV and other elements.  It is hard to scratch, but possible. 

In the latest version of the GMT Rolex introduced ceramic bezels, which they claim are as scratch-proof as their synthetic sapphire crystals.

Each generation of Rolex Bezel gets increasingly stronger...

Ladies Masterpiece Rolex Datejust...

I have seen this watch in person, and it is stunningly beautiful...

Rolex at The Masters Golf Tournament...

This is a great Rolex Advertisement, but it is in German. Boris, maybe you can translate it for us. Augusta is one of the most ideal golf courses on earth.

What a beautiful Rolex ad...

Jake's Quote of the Day

The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever galling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls. —John Muir

Stunning Rolex Image from Hannes...

Hannes is a co-owner of the Geman R-L-X.de Rolex forum and he takes the most amazing Rolex shots.

This shot in particular is really interesting because Hannes has a 36MM Platinum Day-Date next to a White Gold 43MM Yacht-Master II.

You must click on this image to check out the superb detail.

Jocke's Customized Datejust to look like an Explorer and Yachtmaster...

Pictured on the right is Jocke's stunningly cool creation we saw a few weeks ago.  Jock put a stock black Rolex Sunbeam dial on this Datejust and then added a set of hands from a Stainless Yachtmaster along with a red lettered date wheel.

I think Jocke's ultra-cool design combo would look great on a new Datejust with the domed bezel and polished center links.



The image below is a great Macro shot of Jocke's Sunbeam dial:
