More Celebrities go for Rolex



Rolex may not be the best watch in the world, but likely the most commonly known most successful watch from Switzerland.
Daytona, a name of car racing, a name for racing car endurance competition, a result of high tech mechanization, fuel studies, aero-dynamics and the drilling skill that 20ms would make a big difference between life and death! That is alos why car racing is likely top ten men’s best favourite sport. Daytona, the Rolex best design Cosmograph which is used for the precise timing for such kind of races, an icon for energetic, daring, dynamic sportsman’s watch. A watch that many of the known celebrities would wear, Steve Mcqueen, Beckam, Paul Newman, Tom Cruise, Jet Li. etc… Other than Daytona; Milgauss, Date Just and Submariner is also watch of the masterpiece from Rolex.

Hi Adrian, There are two groups of people, one: they like and the other they don't.
The one they like Daytona saying that there is perfect balance of the display dials on the watch, and the one dislikes keep saying that there is no Rolex Cyclop Glass on the Date!
As for me, I think I like it as there is noay or not possible to have a place that can put the Cyclop Glass for the day on the Daytona, Rolex should have thought of and I believed Rolex Designers team has a strong debate on that, and they do not put it on the Daytona since the beginning.
As for me I really like the Daytona that has no crown shoulder as the early release, and people saying that the one should between Paul Newman' picture has a faded colur of the calibrated dial is having an even better value that the non-faded one!
But that is extrememly expensive.
I ahve owned a stainless still, a yellow solid gold and wish to purchaes the Pink gold one when it was HKD$170K, but now it is over 200K!
I will have to look at your collection first, now I can not browse it in this place, once I get back to hotel I will look at that and come back to you!!

I like Daytona as I think the layout of the three subdials is aesthetically impeccable and the overall balance of the dial is just perfect. I am always interested in the vintage Daytona, in particular, Paul Newman one with white dial and black sub-dials. However, the price has been sky rocketed in th past ten years and it is just too much for me. Moreover, there are just too many variations in the market and it is so hard to tell which one is "real", let alone valuation.
Rose gold one is nice but I like the yellow gold one more. Somehow, I think the RG one looks better on a lady instead of a man.
Will try to send you a pic of Daytona later. Hope that you would like it.

Hi Adrian,
Paul Newman is untouchable for a poor sales man like me...might be one day. I like it too much. And always there is virtuoso who could make fake dials looks real even Auction expert was fooled!
Perfect balance is what we can see on Daytona dial, if there is Cyclop lens would distroy the watch layout for sure. Sometimes, I think Pink gold and Yellow gold is more on individual choice. yes, though I agree Pink gold is a bit feminine!
White Gold is my first choice
Like the one you show yesterfay, a lot of shinning "Cube Sugar" Very tempting!
Man, Rolex is not just an ordinary watch makers, but one who provides dreams for many people in the world!

My favourite is the WG one and the second one is YG. To be honest, I have not much feeling for the SS and RG anymore. They are just nice to have.

HK Snob said...

Hi Adrian, WG is for all occassions.
Yellow Gold is not bad!
No, Stainless steel as not enough elegancy much as Gold, just me too to have. Not the top choice...
We have similar taste!

Rolex is known for its exquisiteness and beauty. It's a timepiece worth at all times. So I don't blame these celebrities drooling over Rolex's masterpieces.

HK Snob said...

Hi Jasmine,
yes, I agree the first half, but about the second part, well! these celebrities have that kind of money to buy. Only the fact is poor (me) is always drooling about Rolex, especially some particular rare models!
You have that kind of sense of Humor, bet you are one of the celebrities!!
