Something New.. Something Vintage.. A New Year with something vintage…. It’s 2018 and normally in the New Year, I like to treat myself to that one statement piece that I add to my collection. Every year it’s something from a Hermes or Chanel bag, a iconic jacket, new pair of designer shoes, etc. If you know me, then you’ll know that this year I have already been lusting over something a little more along the lines of a timepiece and what better way to start your first piece of the collection than with Rolex! I’ve personally been lusting over the ever so classic and timeless Vintage Rolex watches from Bob’s Watches most specifically this Gold Rolex Presidential reference 118238 (seen above). Obviously, this watch is an icon and one of the most recognizable of the Rolex, and more superficially Rolex President family! Constructed in 18k yellow gold, Rolex makes their watches with only the best materials. I love the classic shape, the roman numerals, as well as the champagne color on the dial, and of course, the signature day and date additions. Another option that has interestingly been creeping up on me (which I would of never expected) is the Rolex GMT-Master style which you can see below. There is something about the strong and masculine face and weight of the watch that I find attractive!!! The GMT-Master features an extremely rare all-blue bezel, nicknamed “blueberry”, is actually valued at a higher price than the entire watch itself. This watch is simply eye-catching.  Geeze! SO many options BUT I definitely know it will be a Rolex from Bob’s Watches.

I don’t know what it is, but as of late, I have been craving a new piece of jewelry. I was thinking of upgrading something that I already have. Then it hit me, instead of a specific piece of jewelry, why not get something a little different like a watch. Since coming to this realization I’ve been in the market scanning, scoping, and doing my research on all the different luxury watch brands and keep gravitating towards the classic Rolex. There is no doubt that it is one of the most iconic and well-known watch brands so I thought to myself “Why not start there!” I’ve been searching the web and while browsing I came across Bob’s Watches. To my surprise, WSJ dubbed them as “One of the largest watch trading sites” – And saw such an amazing selection of Rolex’s available! I was/am shook by the selection, how many options, link styles, face colours, bezels, etc. That being said, I haven’t decided if I want to go with a modern or a vintage Rolex. I am going to continue to do my research and hopefully will have some new goodies to share with you guys soon!!!
