Why every guy absolutely needs to wear a watch every single day

A lamentable shift has happened in the last few decades: Watches have all but disappeared from men’s wrists.

81.jpg

Once upon a time, a watch was a necessity, something men and women put on their wrists every morning and took off only at night before bed. It was a necessity, or else you wouldn’t know the time of day and you’d be late for all of your meetings.

82.jpg

As cellphones and later smartphones started becoming more common, the watch suddenly seemed old-fashioned.

Who needs a watch when you can just pull your phone out to check the time on a sleek digital display? Millennials probably never even got into the habit of wearing a watch, and for men, that’s a shame.

A watch is the only accessory that a man can truly wear every day.  You can build a collection, swap them out for different outfits, change straps to suit the occasion, and find one that’s perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle.

83.jpg

It’s your own signature piece — something that you wear so often that people end up identifying it with you. Even a smartwatch is better than no watch — though, depending on the model, it will send its own unique message.

When you don’t wear a watch, you’re missing out on that opportunity.

On days I forget my watch, my outfit feels incomplete, like it’s missing something. A watch can really tie it all together.

Now, I’m no technological skeptic — I love my iPhone 6, I’m addicted to Spotify, and for me, Snapchat is less a social network than a hobby.

Still, a watch on the wrist holds tangible benefits for the wearer that go beyond telling the time. In fact, I rarely find myself looking down at my watch to actually find out what time it is.

84.jpg

A watch symbolizes time much more than a smartphone does. More to the point, it reminds you that time is constantly moving and slipping away — so you better get living and doing all those things you’re planning. A smartphone just doesn’t call this to mind in such an immediate or tangible way.

Those hour, minute, and second hands are not going to stop moving. Neither should you.

The story I collect Rolex

One of my hobbies was watch collecting and I used to have a good collection of wristwatches, especially Rolex watches. To complement my hobby, I had an internet forum called TURF which is the acronym for The Ultimate Rolex Forum. I moderated TURF from 1998 to 2001 and it was a very exciting time for me because the board managed to gather thousands of watch lovers from all over the world and in particular many Rolex collectors and experts. To concentrate on my photography, I stopped watch collecting in 2001and sold most of my watches, after having being an avid watch collector for more than 30 years. I also stopped moderating TURF and started Penang Talk, later Taiping Talk and then Ipoh Talk.

Below you will also see a list of selected messages written by the former participants of TURF and later archived as TURF Nuggets. They make up one of the best sources of info available about watches in general and Rolex in particular. Whether you have in interest in watches or not, you will find them enjoyable to read. Check out the island where I live. They call it the Pearl of the Orient and where Rolex watches are tax free.

During my Rolex collecting days and also when I was moderating TURF, one of the most asked questions was how to tell a fake Rolex from a real one. Well, I would like to start by saying it is getting harder all the time but there are a few fundamental steps which one can follow to avoid being duped. To start with, please remember that modern Rolex watches have no “clear casebacks” or “skeleton backs”. These skeleton backs allow you to view the watch’s mechanism or movement. I remember someone posted a message to TURF saying that a couple of vintage Rolex watches (circa 1930) have clear casebacks. I have never seen such watches but it is sufficient for you to remember that as a general rule, Rolex does not make skeleton back cases in their production watches and so, if you see one, it is most likely a fake. Once when I was in Hong Kong, I saw a “Yachtmaster” with a clear caseback and it was obviously a fake and a bad one at that. Avoid all “Rolexes” with clear casebacks.

If you see a Rolex with a date function, check out the magnification of the date. The real Rolex has the date magnified more than the fake .This is especially true in the Submariner with date and the Explorer II. However, please note that the Seadweller is an exception, where the magnification is minimal. If you can manage to get a real Rolex and a fake one, a side-by-side comparison will show you the obvious difference. Take a good look at my Explorer II on top of this page. The magnification of the date should be something as large as that.

If you see a Rolex with an “engraved caseback”, it is most likely a fake because Rolex does not engrave their casebacks except for the Seadweller where the words “Rolex Oyster Original Gas Escape Valve” are engraved in a circular manner. However, please note that all Rolexes have a hologram sticker affixed to the caseback and the new hologram sticker is ” three dimensional” which allows it to be viewed from all angles. The fake sticker is “flat” and can easily be distinguished from the real hologram sticker.

Rolex Daytona can be used as a stop watch. It is not easy to make a counterfeit Rolex Daytona and I have yet to see one that will confuse me.

The latest Rolexes have a “crown” or “coronet” etched on the watch crystal at the six o’clock position.

If you have a set of Rolex serial numbers, it is possible to determine whether a Rolex is a fake by checking the serial number engraved on the watch. The serial number of a fake or real Rolex is engraved (etched) between the lugs. However, to do this, you will have to know what these numbers signify and your local Rolex dealer can probably help you. It is enough for you to know that those numbers are often “badly engraved” on the watch and most fakes from the same supplier carry the same number.

Okay, that’s it for the time being. I will add more details here from time to time and will also try to post some pics.

The Rolex Daytona Story

history of daytona watch by rolex

The Rolex Daytona Story

The engine revving and high speed driving is thrilling. But capturing time when speed is your objective can be difficult. The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the perfect accessory for those seeking high performance, fine engineering and craftsmanship, and, of course, a passion for driving and speed. The Daytona is the best example of the Rolex chronography. It is reliable, waterproof, and self-winding, among its many features.

The Rolex Daytona and Paul Newman

The Rolex Daytona is named for the city where the first NASCAR race was held. Daytona has always been associated with racing, and the Rolex Daytona lives up to that reputation with its chronograph functions. Originally designed for racecar drivers, the Daytona shot to fame when Paul Newman sported his own model. Preceded by the Reference 6238, the Daytona evolved from a simple timekeeping watch to a “chronograph” watch that marked all types of information useful to those timing races.

The Daytona, or cosmograph, was originally launched in 1963. It was a new-generation chronograph, considered in many respects to be the ultimate chronograph. Dedicated to racing drivers, the Daytona provides the high performance accepted, while also remaining comfortable and elegant. It offers several features particular to drivers. The chronograph counters are easily seen, as they stand out clearly with strongly contrasting black and light color of the face and dials. The tachymetric scale, allowing the user to measure the average speed over a given distance, was moved from the dial to the circumference of the bezel. This new design feature, along with the contrasting coloring made the symbols far more legible.

Daytona Features

In 2013, the Daytona became the first Oyster model in the Professional range to be offered in platinum. It also features a unique ice blue dial, exclusive to its Rolex platinum models. It is also equipped with a spectacular monobloc Cerachrom bezel. The Cerachrom is an exclusive Rolex innovation which offers exceptional resistance against scratching, as well as offering a beautiful and aesthetic appearance. The technical and sporty look of the Dayton make it instantly recognizable and timeless.

Rolex Professional watches are members of a ten year old category dedicated to various adventurers. For example, models such as the explorer were dedicated to explorers and mountaineers, offering special features that those in that particular experience could utilize. Like the explorer and Daytona watches, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner is a member of the Professional category, specially designed for those who pursue deep-sea diving.

【Story 】 Would you ever wear a Rolex?

Rolex-1.jpeg

Rolex Datejust II

Would I ever wear a Rolex? That’s the question. And I have an answer yet.

I have never been a Rolex guy. In my opinion, Rolex are made with supreme quality and use the most accurate and robust movements on Earth. They are made to the highest standards. I like every model of Daytona, I love the newer Datejust II, and I sort of like the Explorers. The Submariners are OK except for the awful hands. But, in general, I think Rolex have the worst style of all- old fashioned, far too small, gawdy, terrible.

But my issues with Rolex are not with the timepieces themselves, but rather with the people who wear them. You see, two types of people wear Rolex. First, you have real serious collectors and connaisseurs who wear Rolex. These men have means and choose Rolex for the rich history and unparalleled quality. Second, you have morons and douche bags who wear Rolex. These are men with money, but no knowledge of haute horology and no taste. You know the guy- he’s dumb but entrepreneurial. He started a business, worked hard, got lucky and sold it for millions. He figured he should have a great watch and Rolex was the only brand his friends knew about. Armed with a few bucks and a newspaper ad, he buys a two tone Submariner from his local AD. This man cannot get over the fact that his Rolex does not need a battery.

Now, this second category of Rolex owner is the reason why I might never wear a Rolex. I can’t stand him. I want a timepiece associated with sophistication, class, style and success and not a piece synonymous with rich morons. I don’t want to be confused with Rolex man #2.

The two pieces that could sway me are the Daytona chronograph and the Datejust II. The first is an iconic racing chronograph available in several mind blowing variations. The second is, perhaps, the ultimate dressy-yet-all-purpose timepiece ever made with near – perfect test results. I would seriously consider either of these. Plus, I am told that every serious collection must include at least one Rolex. I had a Tudor- does that count? Frankly, I prefer Tudor. The Pelagos and Fastrider are awesome.

But it does feel like there is some unfinished business while I have never owned a Rolex…
