This time, we're focusing on the nicknames given to the different Rolex Datejust dials. Many collectors consider the dial one of the most important design elements of any timepiece. It often helps them distinguish between individual models. Some variants are particularly rare and, thus, exceptionally popular. If you're not familiar with Linen, Sigma, and Buckley dials yet, this is the perfect opportunity to learn something new that you can then use to impress your peers in your next watch discussion.

It's no secret that mechanical watches can't hold a flame to their quartz counterparts when it comes to accuracy, but that doesn't detract from the fascinating technological complexity and finely finished components of a mechanical timepiece. Nevertheless, many manufacturers are committed to building the most precise mechanical watch possible to reinforce their watchmaking prowess.

The Omega Speedmaster is already an icon, but the addition of the Calibre 321 takes it over the top.

As we’ve said before, this year’s Baselworld was noticeably different than in years past. The exhibition was much smaller than before. On a positive note, that did mean less walking, which was helpful in terms of surviving the madness. While the void was obvious, it did fill up with some unexpected additions like a fashion runway, a small pond with running water, and a massive Moët & Chandon stand.

101 Reasons Why Watches Are Great: Part 8

There's nothing as powerful as a good story. Without our oral and written traditions, all history would be lost to time. In more recent eras, watches have begun to play a role in some of humanity's greatest achievements and, therefore, our greatest stories. Some timepieces come with tales of harrowing journeys, while others have been quietly passed down from generation to generation. No matter the story, each is unique and worthy of being treasured.

Do discontinued models always increase in value?

Tom Mulraney
Aug 07, 2019
We all know the story: A major brand announces that a popular model or reference is unexpectedly being discontinued or changed in some way that is not popular with collectors. Suddenly, there’s a rush for this model at authorized retailers around the world. Demand soon outstrips supply, driving up resale values on the secondary market – at least that’s what it looks like from the outside. The reality is often much more nuanced than that.
