Rolex Sports Watches In Business Suits

Since the mid-late 1950’s Rolex has been making sports (tool) watches. These watches were designed for specific professional or adventurous tasks and/or pursuits. The  richard mille Miami classic style of such watches has lent themselves to be universally respected for their no-nonsense quality and timeless sophistication in even the most formal of occasions.

Rolex produced a number of classic tool watch models that have uncompromisingly stood the test of time. For example, a Rolex Submariner made in say 1974 that retailed back then for around $500, would as a collectable today and an every day wearable watch, sell for around $5,000.

The main Rolex tool watches are:

(a) The “Submariner”;

(b) The “Daytona”;

(c) The “Sea Dweller”;

(d) The “GMT-Master” and “GMT-Master II”;

(e) The “Explorer” and “Explorer-II”;

(f) The “Turn-O-Graph”;

(g) The “Milgauss”; and

(h) The “Yacht-Master”.

Adventurers and professional such as divers, explorers, pilots, and servicemen relied day after day on a watch that could provide them accuracy, reliability and rugged good looks.

Today, businessmen admire the same qualities of accuracy, dependability and no-nonsense results. A stainless steel Rolex tool watch today sits as comfortable on the wrist of a Wall Street stockbroker getting ready for the start of a days trading, as the same watch might be standard equipment for a fighter pilot at 30,000 feet or a deep sea diver 1,000 meters below the surface.

Rolex make many watches, but their movements are rated to be 99.999% accurate per day and to perform at such accuracy for 24/7 for years (5) between service intervals. A Rolex movement is a micro machine, no batteries, no manual winding required, it is manufactured and assembled to comply with microscopic tolerances. Imagine being able to say your car could run 24/7 for 5 years without a service and still run as smoothly as day 1.

Apart from a Rolex tool watch, I know of no mechanical device that was be used continuously 24/7 for 30 years and yield, in monetary terms, 10 times the initial purchase price.
