Tudor has a healthy offering of timepieces that mimic their big brother brand (Rolex).  Hans Wilsdorf, of Rolex fame, unveiled the Tudor line in 1946 with the intention of coming out with a lineup of timepieces priced for the common man.  Although the Tudor emblem has changed from a rose to a shield, the models continue to retain a similar design, including bracelet, dial and case, to the Rolex timepiece.  The Tudor Glamor Day Date Reference 56000 is nearly as breathtaking and opulent as the Presidential Day-Date offered by Rolex.

The Tudor reference 56000-0049 pictured above has a polished steel 39mm case and a distinctive black dial.  Ten diamonds are positioned for each of the hour markers with the exceptions of 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock which, like the Rolex Day-Date, show off the day of the week and day of the month, respectively.

10 Designer Bands With 3 Clasps for the Rolex Submariner Ceramic

Rolex Submariner with Rolesor Gold and Steel Combination

Rolex Submariner with Rolesor Gold and Steel Combination

Launched in 1953 the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner has become one of the most world renowned timepieces.  The Sub was the first divers’ watch to be certified to be waterproof to a depth of 330 feet.  The Oyster was the first waterproof wristwatch, launched in 1926, but the waterproofness system created the first diver’s tool timepiece, setting both the standard and a turning point for a world of divers’ watches to be developed.

Current model Submariners are available with or without the date aperture.  The original Oystersteel model is still available and a standard for men’s timepieces.  However, Rolex has added Rolesor (steel and yellow gold combination), all yellow gold models, and models with different and colorful dials such as the green “hulk” submariner.  The new Submariners don a Triplock triple waterproofness system that supports a water depth of 1000 feet.  If that is not enough waterproofness depth, Rolex also has its Deep-Sea models that can go much deeper.

Another enhancement that has made Rolex Submariner’s leaders in the diver’s timepiece is the Rolex Glidelock clasp, allowing for a secure and comfortable fit over diving suits.  The Glidelock clasp allows the band to expand in 2 mm increments.  However, the fliplock extension links can increase the band to an additional 26 mm.

The Submariner has a 40mm case and is powered by a 3135 caliber self-winding movement with a 48 hour power reserve.  This caliber is developed and manufactured entirely by Rolex.  Certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, it proudly displays its “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” on the dial under the Submariner name.

8 Designer Watchbands for the Rolex Daytona on Oysterflex

Rolex Daytona with Yellow Swimskin Rubber Bracelet

Rolex Daytona with Yellow Swimskin Rubber Bracelet

The Rolex Daytona is the hottest Rolex being sold today.  However, this wasn’t always the case.  Soaring popularity has risen to an epic peak and appears to have no end in sight. The current reference 116518LN is a stunning combination of both yellow gold and a black bezel and dials, along with a black band.  However vintage steel-only Rolex Daytona’s are a collector’s dream even though they did not even have an automatic caliber inside.  Rolex Daytona popularity has been on the rise since actor and racing legend Paul Newman became the spokesperson for the brand, and consistent improvements to the ultimate tool timepiece have brought renewed acclaim.

Rolex has been at the forefront of designing timepieces for racing events for over half a century.  The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona was introduced in 1963, allowing drivers to accurately calculate their lap speed utilizing the tachymetric scale and its three counter dials, from the pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock. Although early models were available only in steel, current Daytona models are found in both yellow and pink gold, and special editions can even be found in platinum.

The Daytona is known for its 3 dials.  The 12-hour dial is at  9 o’clock and the minutes dial is at 6 o’clock.  It also has a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position.   The tachymetric scale was introduced allowing measurement of speed up to 200 units per hour (miles or kilometers is your choice).  However, as race speeds and car technology increased, Rolex released models that supported 300 units and now 400 units.  It is unlikely for land vehicles to stretch beyond 400 units, due to limitations in tire, heat and other technology.  However, if they do, Rolex will be there to build the next version of the Rolex Daytona.

The new Daytona is equipped with a caliber 4130 which is an automatic mechanical chronograph movement developed and manufactured by Rolex.  This new caliber is built with fewer components, enhancing reliability, and allowing for a larger mainspring.  This has greatly enhanced the power reserve from 50 to 72 hours.

Rolex Daytona Bands Support the Deployant Buckle

All Rubber B bands are made in Switzerland of pure natural vulcanized rubber. No coating, blends, glues or bonding are utilized in the manufacturing process allowing for a natural allergen-free and non-toxic material that can withstand an active lifestyle.  For more information visit our page here.
