The Rolex Baselworld 2012 Collection iPad App

The Rolex Baselworld 2012 Collection iPad App

Aug 24

Last year, Rolex surprised me by releasing an app for the iPad called Perpetual Spirit:  On Exploration.  It was a surprise not only because the famously traditional, change adverse, and perhaps stodgy Rolex was producing content on the iPad, but also because the app (as well as the print edition of this particular publication) actually talked about watches <gasp!>.  As  a long time...

In 2010, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg did a hilarious film comedy called “The Other Guys” with the premise being to show how important and meaningful the non-super star performers are on a team in the grand scheme.  On team Rolex, watches like The Submariner, Daytona, and the GMT Master II are the “super star” performers which tend to grab all the mainstream...

The Rest of Rolex’s Basel 2012 New Products

For Rolex, the SKY-DWELLER (which I wrote about yesterday) was clearly their lead launch product for Baselworld 2012.  In addition to several jewel encrusted monstrosities which hold no interest for myself and my readers, they did roll out some other items of interest.  First, the long-anticipated non-date Submariner 114060 which has all of the upgrades (ceramic bezel, blue lume, bracelet,...

Rolex Unveils The SKY-DWELLER At Basel 2012!

Mar 07

A surprise new model from Rolex was debuted this morning in Basel Switzerland at the annual Baselworld Watch Fair – it’s called the SKY-DWELLER: Visually it appears to be some sort of a hybrid between the Yacht-Master II and a Datejust II.   It’s not exactly what I’d call a “pilot style” watch either and the name suggests.   What the SKY-DWELLER is however...

Review of the Rolex Explorer II 216570 By: John B. Holbrook, II January 20th, 2012 If you’re a long time reader of LuxuryTyme.com, you’ll know my very first brand new Rolex was a white dial Explorer II 16570 I purchased back in 2004.  When I bought my first white dial Daytona, I decided I didn’t need two white dial Rolexes in my collection, and sold my Explorer II.  Truth be...

Rolex Releases Perpetual Spirit: On Exploration

Nov 15

Last week, I got an interesting surprise from Rolex.  A few times a year, they usually send me a few copies of the PERPETUAL SPIRIT magazine (which I’ve talked about before here on LuxuryTyme in this article).  However, their most recent publication which I was sent was a special edition called PERPETUAL SPIRIT:  ON EXPLORATION: This was no mere magazine, but rather a book dedicated to...
