    Clint Eastwood’s ‘Root Beer’ GMT-Master

    It’s not hard to find a Rolex in a movie. They’ve been icons of both style and durability for decades. Everyone knows the first celluloid James Bond, played by actor Sean Connery, sported a Rolex Submariner in the early Bond flicks.

    Rolex Bracelets: A Brief Explanation

    If you’re shopping for your first Rolex, you can easily become overwhelmed with some of the technical terms and jargon that you encounter. Words like chronometer, perpetual, chronograph, and Oyster can be just as bewildering as the plethora of different models: Oyster Date, Datejust, Submariner, Sea-Dweller, GMT-Master, Air King, etc. It’s kind of like a secret handshake or code or something, right? Well, hopefully we can pull back the curtain just a bit and demystify at least one aspect of all this esoteric business, that of the bracelets.

    Rolex and Tudor: Partners in Time

    Tudor watches in the past were somewhat like the Rodney Dangerfield of luxury watches: they “didn’t get no respect at all!” Tudors have unfortunately sometimes been saddled with the appellation, “Poor Man’s Rolex.” That’s a shame, since the watches have always been fine quality, well-crafted timepieces since the brand’s inception in 1945.

    Rolex and the Chronometer Certification

    Rolex has long been passionately dedicated to making their watches more accurate than the competition. This may come as a surprise to some, who regard their watches today as fashion statements or even for the Tool Watch crowd who view their pet Rollie as a tough duty sport watch. The truth is, Rolex recognized many years ago that only accurate watches were worthwhile, no matter how pretty—or sturdy—they were.

    Is Your Lottery Watch a Rolex?

    Okay, what do I mean by a lottery watch? Here’s what I’m talking about: what kind of watch would you buy if you had a huge monetary windfall like winning the big one, a 100 Million Dollar Powerball, let’s say.
