Historical Horology: A Few Rolex Videos




Welcome back to our weekly installment, Historical Horology.  We’ve featured Rolex in these articles in the past, and for good reason – they’ve got a long and storied history, and one that’s well-documented.  Their vintage pieces also hold a great deal of interest, both for novice and pro collectors.  Today, we’ve got a few videos that fit neatly into that landscape.

First, from the folks at WatchFinder & Co, they show us the process involved in the tear-down, cleaning, and reassembly of what is arguably the most popular Rolex model, the Submariner.

Of course, that’s what happens after you’ve gotten a Rolex into your collection.  For those who are tempted to go and pick up your own, Rick from Pawn Stars (on the History Channel, so it fits this series – kind of) has some tips for you:

Of course, you may also want to check out these other articles we have on Rolex, including some actual history, as well as some tips on purchasing one.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
