Rolex Hotness: Actress Elizabeth Hurley...

GMT Master II Ceramic...

It is very popular for women these days to wear mens Rolex watches like a bracelet.

I really like this photo because it shows off the great lines of the new Supercase GMT. In particular, I really like the flat back and I have never been a fan of the bubble back. In my opinion as a designer, I think Rolex should make all their watches flat-backed.

A flat back fits better, looks better and is more comfortable...

Mechanical Masterpiece

Ever wonder what a vintage Rolex GMT looks like when you take it apart completely? Well here it is and it is absolutely fascinating!!! You must click on the images to see all the magnificent detail up close...


They say the sum is greater that the whole of its parts, and when you see all the parts that constitute a Rolex you realize it really is a mechanical masterpiece. 



Customized White Rolex Submariner...


Questionable Authenticity

Alert: It has come to our attention after publishing this story that the authenticity of this watch is questionable. This information comes from a highly reliable source. 

We are currently investigating the authenticity of this watch and as soon as we conclude we will let you know.


The Great White Submariner

Phillip in the German R-L-X.de Forum showed off this really cool looking Submariner that somebody customized with a white dial. I call this combo of a white dial with a black bezel an Oreo Cookie Submariner. 

The only other white dial Submariner I have ever seen can be viewed by clicking on the label tag below named WHITE SUBMARINER.

I really like this color combination and think Rolex should offer it as an option. I think it would look great on a black nylon strap.

I believe this watch was made in the mid to late 1950s.
