Rolex and Wimbledon – Tradition, Tennis and Time Keeping

WimbledonRoger Federer might be wearing a Rolex watch and the official tennis face of Rolex and Rolex might be the official timekeeper of Wimbledon, but Roger Federer is no longer wearing that Rolex watch on the hallowed grass courts of Wimbledon in 2013.

Roger Federer was beat in the second round by the number 115-ranked Ukrainian, who up to now, no one had ever even heard of.  Well, now we have, and the question I want to know is this, did Roger’s Rolex lose anytime during this 4 setter.

Watches & The America’s Cup – A Long History

The America's CupThe other day I was watching this special on TV about the new catamarans that were sailing in the America’s Cup.  I can’t remember what channel it was on, but it was intense.  These things can literally fly across the water and they are a new racing breed of boat and will just be tried out on the water in a race for the first time in the 34th America’s Cup.

This is such a big deal, because it is big bucks to build these boats, and it’s not just the boat makers and the computer giants and big brands that get behind these racers to make these races happen, but the high-end watches as well.  Look at Rolex and yacht racing and now there is JeanRichard as the official timepiece of the classic rivalry between Oxford and Cambridge.

But, what does this have to do with The America’s Cup? Everything.

The Vintage Watch & A Pitch

Jonathan’s Watch Buyer has been delving into the vintage watch market more and more these past few months and we have been buying some amazing watches. In fact, we are becoming one of the best places in Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas to sell your vintage watch.  And, there is no question that our eBay store is the best place to buy a vintage watch, as we have the best prices and the best selection.

But, enough of the sales pitch.  Actually, I take that back.  This article is going to be ALL sales pitch.  I don’t do sales pitch often.  I like to write articles that inform and will help you decide what you want and know how to buy, but this time I want you to see what we have, and more importantly, I want you to bring your vintage Rolex watches, Patek Philippe watches, Cartier watches, Omega watches, Audemars Piguet watches and all other watches, including pocket watches to Jonathan’s Watch Buyer.

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!

A. Lange & Söhne – ABC of Watch Brands

A. Lange & SohneIn order to be a watch buyer or a watch collector you need to be familiar with watch brands across the entire spectrum of watches, from super luxury watches to utilitarian watches.  There are benefits to owning watches from all price points and all spectrums, and I want to educate you on the differences so you can make your own informed decisions.

You see, when you collect or buy, you have to be a collector for yourself.  Whether you are collecting because it is an investment or because it is something you love to look it or want, you can’t collect because of how it will impress others.  I want to show you that there are options and you don’t have to be rich to be a collector, although I am also going to be showing you the luxury lines as well.

To start, I am going to show you a luxury watch line that is so stunning this is definitely a watch that no man should own.
