1920s Rolex Cushion Case...


1920s Rolex Cushion Case

If this Rolex looks similar to a Panerai it is because the Panerai Radiomir model is based on this same design language that Rolex pioneered back in the 1920s.



I Spy Saturday Season 1 [Episode 8 : The Time of the Knife]


I Spy Saturday
Season 1 [Episode 8 : The Time of the Knife]
Original Air Date: November 3, 1965

Last week I skipped over Episode 8 by mistake, so here it is. This one takes place in Tokyo and there are some beautiful Japanese scenes in this episode. I really enjoyed this episode for some reason. Robert Culp and Bill Cosby's report is great and in this episode you really start to see it congeal.

I don't know what it is about I Spy, but when I watch the episodes, it almost seems like I am hanging out with them...Almost like I went back in time to 1965 in a time machine and am invisible and just observing...and yes, our spies are wearing their trusted, trademark GMT Pepsi Rolex watches...



Yin & Yang: Point Counterpoint...


Yin & Yang

Yesterday we saw Bernhard's magnificent new grail Rolex Paul Newman Daytona and today we are going to look at two exotic Daytona dials that are perfectly antithetical to Bernhard's watch. Both watches come from Bernhard's pals and this first photo was taken by Philipp of his opposite Daytona pictured on the right, with Bernhard's on the left.


Dr. Strong Daytona

Jeff (Dr. Strong) sent in these next three fantastic shots of his Daytona which is perfectly opposite of Bernhard's.


Jeff is a huge Paul Newman fan and rightfully so!!! All these amazing vintage Rolex Daytona shots are just amazing!!!!!!I would like to thank Philipp and Jeff for sharing these superb photos. They and Bernhard are great Rolex photographer's and their watches are so cool!!!!!!
