Rolex Will use new system to Key in the Date of purchase Electronically

Rolex GMT MASTER II Pepsi in White Gold


Date of Purchase of your Rolex
As you may know for every purchase of your Rolex, the Authorized Dealer will have to write on the invoice the full amount of payment with date of the purchase.  It is Mandatory to put down the date of the purchase on the Warranty card. Rolex allows 24 months of warranty on your Rolex effective from the date of Purchase.

There is some request not to put date on the Warranty card, it does not work on Rolex unless the shop manager is you!

And there is no way to put a later date of Purchase as Rolex does not allow do have this purchase.

Though there are numerous requests to put the date of the purchase later a few days or a couple of week for certain reason, like the Birthday of yours.

Rolex is trying soon to use 2D Matrix code or some other means to stop this “malpractice”!

When you purchase a Rolex, there is a scanner to scan the Code on the Warranty card and the Real Date of Purchase will be recorded in the Rolex Central System Worldwide electronically and Automatically; no one could amend this.

This will control the date registration on the warranty card.
Still, the manual writing the “Date of Purchase” will be required to tell the watch owner the day of purchase on the warranty card.

The No.1 of Watch...

What are the No. 1?



Record High Auction price: Patek Philippe Supercomplication pocket watch
In Geneva, Switzerland, on November 11, 2014, the hammer fell, signaling the end of a highly anticipated Sotheby’s event that would once again return the famous and completely unique Patek Philippe Supercomplication pocket watch to the auction block.

In the hours after the end of the auction, a bevy of luxury lifestyle and financial world journalists eagerly reported on the record-setting value not only of the Supercomplication watch itself, but of any previously auctioned timepiece. The final price, bid via proxy for an anonymous entity was 23,237,000 Swiss Francs – an amount that converts to over $24,000,000 USD

Now, with $39,336 US Dollar can buy 1 kilo of gold, that Patek Philippe can be used to purchase  610 Kg of 24 KT solid gold....hmm

Which I think I can turn it over to a Solid 24 KT bath tube with over 1 cm thick! Super Extravaganza!


The Most Expensive Watch Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor finds its way to the million-dollar watches list thanks to its case, which is made entirely of silicon, a material with half the weight of titanium and four times the hardness. Roger Dubuis told me that thave have made three pieces only, only two pieces were sold.


The Quatour — yes, the most expensive watch produced to date by Roger Dubuis — is equipped with the RD101 movement, notable for its four sprung balances, which work in pairs to compensate for the effects of gravity much faster than a tourbillon would, resulting in a more accurate watch.

I am coming from Semiconductor Industry, a piece of 6 inches Silicon Wafer of thickness of 0.02 inch is about USD$100, 2 of these wavers may be good enough for makring the Roger Dubuis watch, and I think the Silicon is hard but it is brittle, so the Excalibur Quatuor case material should not be pure Silicon, might be doped with some other metal, my guess only.

Even ISIS threatens to behead me, I don't buy as those Material is too cheap! Of course, I would never have that kind of Money, forget it!

As....

The Excalibur Quatuor is priced at 1 million Swiss francs (which translates to roughly around $1,125,000 U.S)




The Vacheron Constantin Model 222


The Oldest Watch Company
The oldest uninterrupted luxury watch brand is Vacheron Constantin. Founded in 1755 by independent watchmaker, Jean-Marc Vacheron, Vacheron Constantin has remained a leader in the luxury watch industry. Vacheron Constantin has been making horological history for over 250 years.


Blancpain was established in 1735 but they have not been continued for watches.

In the second half of the 19th century, as industrialization took hold, the prices of watchmaking products were falling and many workshops were fated to close down.

In 1865 Blancpain built a two-storey factory by the River Suze and made use of water power to supply the electricity needed for its production processes. So Vacheron Constantin is the oldest Swiss Watch manufacture.


ETA 7725 Movement


The Largest Watch Movement OEM in Switzerland ETA
Swatch subsidiary ETA Manufacture Horlogere, which is based in Grenchen, Switzerland, furnishes many OEM brands, such as LVMH, which markets TAG Heuer, Hublot and Zenith watch lines, and Richemont, which markets amongst others, Baume & Mercier, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Officine Panerai, Piaget SA Longines, Hublot, TechnoMarine, Tudor, and Vacheron Constantin.

ETA is the Swiss Largest Movement Supplier to many watch makers in Switzerland… Its movement 7725 has been used in many Swiss Watches for decades.




The Rolex Date Just Stainless Steel in Roman Numerals, 18 KT white Gold bezel



World Most Valuable brand by Forbes : #65 Rolex
Rolex is the leading name in luxury wristwatches.

It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, but relies on 4,000 watchmakers in more than 100 countries.

It created the world's first waterproof watch in 1926. Operating profit margins for the brand hover around 30%.

Some of the world's most famous athletes pitch Rolex watches including: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn.
As of May 2015, Rolex is valued 8.3 Billion.







World's thinnest Watch
At SIHH 2014, Piaget introduced a new watch model called the Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P which set a new record for the thinnest mechanical watch in the world.
With a total case thickness of just 3.65mm.

Beware your car door, friend of mine had accidentally hit by door of his car!  And immediately his Universal super thin Watch was formed to an “U” shape! Total loss!




World Lightest Tourbillon Watch
It is not that often that we can get our hands on rare Richard Mille watches the crazy RM27-01 - the lightest tourbillon watch ever created, with a weight of only 19 grams with strap included!
Also Richard Mille is named is the Most profitable Swiss Watch Company!




World Smallest Watch
Here is the world's smallest mechanical watch movement, and you'll be surprised to learn that it was originally made 80 years ago in 1929.

It celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. It is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101, and it is still made today. (as shown on the avove picture)

The original movement had 78 parts while today's Calibre 101 has 98 parts. Meaning that over the years it was almost possible to shrink parts down even more and keep them in the same space. It is 14mm long, 4.8mm wide, and 3.4mm thick. Really little and it weights around a gram. I repeat : One Gram!


Godzilla of watches MR2129 released in 2006 from Japanese brand Musk for those with wrists like elephant foot. 

Note :90mm in diameter and with a weight of 1.6 pounds.

Its probably the heaviest watch ever too...


Surely something this large must double as a table clock – or lethal weapon!

Oh My buddha, Is this still classified as Wrist Watch!?

Manny Pacquaio and Mayweather's "Flight of the Century" and Pacman's Rolex Daytona




Perhaps that $500 million Contest was not that properly handled and gave off the pungent odor of   scam. Imagine a ticket of USD$330,000 is good enough for someone to buy a house in Hong Kong.

The “fight of the century” what was mislabeled as it mired in controversy minutes after the scores were read on that Saturday night.

I think Pacquiao will have another fight with Mayweather again, Will you come to Watch?

Well, that should be done within maximum 1-2 years as Manny is now 37 and Mayweather is 35, they can wait but time cannot!

Well, what watch did Manny wear after the fight in the media meeting… That is again his Favourite Rolex Daytona Daytona valued USD$480,000. That he had once forget and left in a CR of a Manila hotel, and was found after he offers a reward of Peso 5,000,000!

Is that a legendary Watch!? I would say yes, and That was has used as an icon Watch of Manny, the hero of the Philippines….  Does he look like Bruce Lee?
