Historical Horology: A Rolex That Survived a WWII POW Camp

Posted on 09 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Most likely, you’re at least passingly familiar with the fact that Rolex made a practice of selling watches to British officers held in German POW camps during World War II, with payment not expected until after the war’s conclusion.

Hourtime Episode 149 – R to the O to the L to the EX

Posted on 03 December 2013 by Administrator

Welcome to the HourTime show, the best 30 minute (+/-) hour podcast on the web.


In this weeks episode we discuss:

  • Rolex
  • Rolex
  • and Rolex

Ariel joins Jake Ehrlich from Jake’s Rolex World to talk about the differences between the global marketplace, in regards to the consumption of fine goods and services, where price is no option and opulence is considered the norm … and the quest for better quality mass production goods that are affordable to the common man in the local, urban shops and boutiques on ‘Main St. USA’.

Just kidding. It’s all Rolex.

Historical Horology: Taking a Look at Rolex

Posted on 01 December 2013 by Patrick Kansa

Last week, we had an overview of Omega’s history. Today, we’ll take a look at the brand Omega is competing with, in terms of market share – Rolex. There’s been a lot of information bouncing around lately on Rolex (including our own mentions lately), I think in large part due to their recent invite of four prominent watch bloggers to tour their facilities. Today’s article is just a happy coincidence, as I’ve had this one in the queue for a bit. Continue Reading

Historical Horology: Rolex Made A Mistake?

Posted on 22 September 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

ExplorerIIcreamdial1-580x387

When we think of a brand like Rolex today, we might be tempted to view it as a monolithic entity, turning out the same watch over and over again, without any major variations in the product that ends up in the consumers hands. Today, it’s easy to see how they can accomplish this uniformity, with their production housed in only four facilities. This wasn’t always the case, however. Continue Reading
