Rolex Style: Summer Submariner and Sox

Rolex StyleI have been doing a lot of thinking about this blog and site and what I want to accomplish here.  I want to buy your watches and I want to sell you watches, but what I really love is to style the watches that I am getting, and yes, I love to style my own watches.  It’s amazing what the change of a band can do paired up with a couple of awesome bracelets and some fab shoes and you have a smoking outfit!

So, I am going to start to show you how I like to style and change this from just a blog about watches to a blog about style and watches and men’s style and well just fun.

How To Afford and Buy A Rolex Watch: A Guide by Jonathan’s Watch Buyer

Rolex GMT-Master III remember the day when I bought my first Rolex.  I was going on vacation right before the 4th of July weekend, and I had saved up for this watch for months.  I had been buying and selling Rolex watches for a while and knew which one I wanted. I wanted the Submariner.  I had my eye on the perfect one and when I found it, I knew it was the watch.

Because I was out of town when it was supposed to arrive, I had it sent to the lodge where I was staying with my family.  I couldn’t sleep the night before, that’s how excited I was.  But, FedEx came and went and the watch didn’t show up.  I tracked it down to the FedEx station about 100 miles away and in my obsession to have that Rolex on my wrist, left my family and drove to the station.  No watch.  They tracked it onto a truck that was supposed to bring it to the station the following day.

I didn’t get my watch until after the holiday was over because of a series of mishaps and cluster f*cks, and even with all of that, it didn’t spoil the moment I slipped that stainless steel bracelet on my wrist and felt the weight of the Rolex on my wrist.

I feel that way every time I buy a new Rolex and I want to help you have that feeling too.

What Kind of Rolex Watch Style Defines You?

Rolex Watch StyleI’ve already said that you can call me Sporty.  And, I am sporty.  I don’t go for watches that are elegant; it’s just not my style.  I appreciate them and love to look at them and love to collect them for the value that they represent and even buy them for Jonathan’s Watch Buyer, but I don’t wear them.  I have these really big ham hands, and now I’m all scarred up, because my dang dog bit my thumb while I was teasing him, long story.

Anyway, because Rolex is my favorite of all watch brands and I am a bit biased when it comes to writing, collecting and discussing Rolex, I thought I would do a post about the various Rolex watch styles and then in the comments, I want you to tell me which Rolex watch style you are and why!

Rolex Cellini – The Rolex Watch Series

Rolex CelliniThe Rolex Cellini is often not considered a “real” Rolex, but it is just as real as the Rolex Explorer or the Rolex Submariner. The difference is that this particular line was designed as the ideal timepiece for those who have an appreciation of true artistry and it is also the first watch that was produced in large quantities that gained chronometric certification.

This Rolex collection was developed in celebration of sculptor and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini, and although often overlooked and undervalued as part of the Rolex family, once men and women are exposed to the line, they rarely turn back because of the beauty that this line presents.

Rolex DateJust Lady 31 Model 178271

Rolex DateJust Lady 31Lately the watches that have come across my desk have been so gorgeous I want to buy them all for my wife, and myself but alas, my wallet and my business don’t work that way. Most of the watches that I buy go into our vault here at work and stay there for months before they make into a new wrist or are sold on eBay.

Sometimes they are traded with other watch dealers, which is always great, depending on what the trade is for, but this beauty is one of those watches that when it comes in, any watch dealer is thrilled for a few reasons.

1. It’s a relatively new model
2. It’s a midsize ladies model
3. It’s only a couple of years old and in excellent condition
4. It’s rose gold and stainless
5. It’s scattered diamonds around the bezel

Rolex Air-King – The Rolex Series

When it comes to buying a Rolex, you can’t go wrong with any of the models, but if you want to get your feet wet with Rolex without breaking the bank, the Rolex Air-King is the watch to get.  The Rolex Air-King has been around since 1945 and it is a variant of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Model.  This is one of those watches that is classic in its style and simple in its design.  It is a timeless model and also has an important history.

Rolex Watch Series by Jonathan’s Watch Buyer – Rolex Models

Rolex Watch DatejustI am slightly obsessed with Rolex.  I think it is the most superior watch on the market, holds its value better than any watch you will ever own, can be worn from the bedroom to the boardroom and then to the bottom of the ocean and is frankly just badass.  I have not found one thing about any Rolex watch I have ever owned that I dislike.

Because of this obsession, which I only felt would be fair to share with my all of my three readers; I am starting a Rolex watch series.  This is going to be a comprehensive series about the styles and model numbers for each style, so that when you go out and buy a pre owned Rolex watch or a brand new Rolex watch you will know without a doubt that the Rolex watch you purchase is true blue 100% authentic because this will be your number one go-to resource!

Rolex Watch Modifications, Are you a Believer?

Rolex Watch ModificationsIt seems that lately the rage is all about modifying your beautiful Rolex watch.  I am a watch buyer and a watch lover and most specifically a Rolex watch collector and fan, and I’m not so sure how I feel about the modifications that I am seeing on these Rolex’s.

I know that personally, although I think many of these looks are cool, I wouldn’t go and take my Sub or my GMT-Master and let anyone touch them with anything to make them other than the way they are supposed to be and Rolex intended them to be.  But, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t right for someone else.  After all, it’s free will and what’s good for someone else just might not be right for the other guy.

Something important to remember though, if you buy a Rolex watch that has been blinged out or modified in any way by anyone other than Rolex, it voids any warranty with Rolex and they will not do any work on your watch. Period.  So, be sure that whomever you purchase your Rolex from that did the work on it has a good warranty!!
