Engraved stainless steel Yes The Rolex Daytona was inspired by racecar drivers and enthusiasts, most notably, iconic actor Paul Newman, who reportedly wore his Daytona every day after he was gifted one by his wife.

The company is a legend, and their products are the cornerstone of an industry that sells dreams, status, quality and ideally, value. Whether or not individual entities in the luxury industry can deliver on these promises is a different story, but what makes Rolex so famous is its consistent ability to actually deliver these goals to a large degree. So today I look at probably the most popular Rolex product, the Rolex Submariner.
For review, I am looking at two Rolex Submariner models in steel. The difference between them should be clear. One has a date window with magnifier over that window on the sapphire crystal, while the No Date has none of that for a cleaner looking dial. While the difference is minor, it is these little differences which are important to Rolex fans, and the price difference between the two is not inconsequential.

Tell me the story of how you got the watch. I was eighteen years old, and working for Paul helping him build this treehouse; this was a summer job so I could make some money for college. I think Paul had thought it out beforehand. He was the kind of guy that rolled so cool and so apparently spontaneous, that I think in this particular case when I came over he fully had the intention of giving me the watch. You know, he was an actor and he could just make this environment super cool, whether he had scripted this or actually forgotten to wind it.

Rolex is easily the most famous high-end watch line in the world. It is also the most recognizable and arguably one of the most durable watches in existence. The beginnings of the company can be traced to when Hans Wilsdorf and W Davis established their watch company called Wilsdorf and Davis. At this time, pocket watches were more popular than wristwatches but Rolex had a vision, and that vision was that one day wristwatches would far surpass pocket-watches in popularity.
Through the years Rolex is credited with building the first truly water proof watch called the ‘Oyster’. The first watch with an automatic date called the ‘Datejust’. And the first diving watch resistant to meters called the ‘Submariner’. It is easily the most famous modern Rolex line; is classic, but modern, and simply comes with the time and the date.
Which is all most of us really need. The ‘Rolex Datejust’ comes in sizes 26mm to ‘Datejust II’ 41mm, and in many different variations, from 2-tone, to diamond dialed. The ‘Rolex DateJust’ is a very good choice for those seeking a watch that will go with everything, and will last forever. Also check out the ‘Rolex DateJust Turn-O-Graph’, which is a little less simple-looking as it features a red second hand.
This contrasts very well against the black or white dial, and makes the dial stand out a little more.

These early watches were sold to jewelers who marketed them with their own names on the dial. Contrary to popular belief, Wilsdorf was neither Swiss nor a watchmaker. Wilsdorf was a German national, and Davis was British. The “Rolex” trademark was registered in , and the firm opened an office in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the world’s center for high-quality watchmaking.
When Rolex first introduced the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date in , the luxury watch company also introduced an innovation – it was the first wristwatch that displayed the date and day of the week in a full window on its dial. Add the President bracelet, which was originally created for it, and you have an iconic watch that will continue to.
This was also the same year of the 40 year anniversary of the Rolex company. The Datejust was introduced as the world’s first pressure-proof, self-winding calendar wrist chronometer which automatically changed the date in its dial window. It was fitted with a coin-edged bezel and a “pie-pan” dial. This coin edged bezel was later evolved into what is now known as the “Rolex Fluted Bezel”.
The cyclops feature, a magnified two and one half power lens window to allow easy visibility of the date, was first released on the Datejust. Rolex also introduced the Thunderbird version of the Datejust, where the only large difference between the two is the bezel:
