The Golden Age Of Rolex Movements: 4-Part Series Looking At Breakthroughs, Golden Years, And Predictions For The Future Of The World’s Most Iconic Watch Brand
In 2019 we ran an interesting four-part series by Tim Mosso of Watchbox fame detailing the history, present, and future of Rolex movements.
Tim put hours and hours’ worth of research into this oeuvre, and now, as we settle into a slow, post-lockdown summer, I thought it well worth drawing your attention to this series in case you missed it the first time round.
If you haven’t seen it yet, hold on to your hat and settle into your seat: it’s one helluva great read.

Heh, looking back when I was going by the name ‘Gil’ in the comments, I did indeed cave in and get a Rolex – a Sub though, not a Datejust.
Looking forward to seeing the Daytona Triple Split in the future. It’s going to happen, I feel it in my water.
