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.

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!

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.

Richard Mille RM 038 Tourbillon – The Fastest & Lightest Watch On Earth

Richard Mille RM038 TourbillonWhat would it be like to own the fastest and lightest watch on earth? There are several stars, and most especially star athletes that know.  As I was researching another article, I came across the Richard Mille RM 038 Tourbillon.  It had a strange familiarity to me, and I couldn’t quite place it, but I knew I had crossed paths with this piece of fabulousness before.

Then I realized it was another I had written long ago and far away about the five watches that no man should ever own.  Not because they should really never be owned, but because they were too special to be owned or possessed.  This was the first time I had run across the Richard Mille RM 038 Tourbillon and what stuck out to me was that Nadal had worn it when he won Wimbledon.

I write a lot of articles, so what isn’t surprising is that I didn’t remember that I had written this article, but that I haven’t repeated any content yet, now THAT is surprising, but this watch bears repeating, it is just that phenomenal.
