When it comes to watches, Rolex is the top dog. Rolex started producing watches 1905, and quickly gained a reputation as one of the most high quality watch companies in the world. The craftsmanship and intensive care required to make one watch is what truly sets Rolex apart from all other watches. Owning one of these true pieces of art represents wealth and success. Rolex owners are a select few including Steve McQueen, leonardo dicaprio, and yes James Bond. Below is my list of the top 7 Rolex watches on the market today.
One of Rolex’s most beautiful designs that fits the hand perfectly. Its the perfect watch for first time buyers. Its simple yet elegant, and at a very good price point at around $3000 to $5000 rather or not you want to buy pre-owned or new. Its made out of 904L stainless steel- used in chemical, aerospace, and other industrys where resistance to corrosion is of the up-most importance. The inside of the watch is waterproof and has a 3132 movement. It has a Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorber for extreme conditions. The Explorer is designed for exploring and the extreme conditions, while at the same time looking good.
Rolex describes the Datejust as “the modern archetype of the classic watch, thanks to aesthetics and functions that transcend changes in fashion.” These are truly timeless pieces of art. The Datejust has dozens of designs but in my opinion the one linked is the best of all designs. One of the greatest watches for casual wear.
One of the most famous watches Rolex has ever made. Named after Daytona Beach known for its NASCAR, the watch is suited designed for racers. It has 3 sub-dials chronometers used for measuring speed. One for standard seconds, one for minutes, and one for hours.
#4:GMT Master II
One of the nicest Rolex’s on the market is the GMT Master II. It has the Submariner look but has a 2 color bezel. It’s also special in that it has a blue dial that does a rotation every 24 hours. Its made of 904L stainless steel like the Explorer ensuring its endurance.
Possibly one of my favorite watches, and not just because its the watch Bond wears in almost every single movie. Its possibly one of the most bad-ass watches made by really anyone. Its one of Rolex’s most popular watches, and possibly the most recognizable watches in the world. Its reliable, sleek, and sexy. Just wearing one makes you feel like Bond.
#2: Yacht Master II
One of the most beautiful watches in the world. The Yacht Master II is an elegant watch for any occasion. Made from 18k gold it is truly worth the $20,000 investment. The boxer Conor McGregor famously has a golden Yacht Master II
#1:Day Date II President 18K
While the $34,000 definitely isn’t cheap, it is extremely high quality and just visually eye appealing. The roman numerals and golden color give this watch a classic look.The simplicity yet elegance make this watch truly a masterpiece.
