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!

What Your Watch Style Says About You

I’m Sporty.  In fact, you can call me Sporty Sergio if you want.  My wife, she’s Fashion.  We are Sporty and Fashion Nuncio, and we named ourselves after our watch style.    Does this make you want to break out in a Spice Girls song? It does for me, because it reminds me of the Spice Girls and how each of their names were indicative of their personalities: Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Posh and Baby.

When you buy a watch, the watch style is also a function of your personality.  It says who you are.  Are you sporty or a fashion icon? Are you contemporary or traditional? No matter which watch style you do go with, or even if you like to switch off, what you are strapping on your wrist is going to say who you are that day and how you are feeling.

The Serious Sports Watch for the Serious Sports Enthusiast

yohan_blake_wears_richard_mille_tourbillon_at_the_2012_london_olympics_olc88I might have mentioned that back in the day, before I creaked when I got up off the couch, I was a boxer.  In fact, I was supposed to go to the Olympics for boxing in High School, but real life jumped in and the rest, as they say, has been a roller coaster ride of fabulous history.   But, what types of sports watches did I wear when I was clobbering people? I honestly don’t remember, but I doubt it was anything worth remembering!

Of course, now I am very particular about the type of Sports watch I put on when I go out for a run, and I am REALLY particular about the watch I wear when I watch my son, Jonathan, compete in his triathlons! Hey, I gotta represent!

Seriously, it’s important to have the ‘right’ watch for the right sport, so I am going to give you my all time favorite serious sports watches that I like to match up for serious sports enthusiasts.
