Rolex Studio Shot of the Day: Yellow Gold Rolex Submariner

Rolex Studio Shot of the Day
Yellow Gold Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Enthusiast took this great shot of his yellow gold Rolex Submariner. It is so strange and interesting at the same time to witness another generation of Rolex watches heading into the "Vintage" category, but with the advent of all the new Supercase Rolex Sport models that is really what is going on.

When I first started exploring Rolex design–more than a quarter-century ago–the synthetic sapphire Rolex watches made all the jet-plastic (acrylic) crystal watches vintage looking. Today all the new Supercase Rolex watches with the ceramic bezel inserts are doing the same thing...at least in my mind ;-))))

I think more than anything, it just goes to show how totally timeless Rolex design is!!!!
