Watches That Look Like Rolex

Cars Change, Watches Don’t: Looking At Cadillacs & Rolex Over The Years

Cars Change, Watches Dont: Looking At Cadillacs & Rolex Over The Years feature articlesI'll admit it. I love watches and I love cars. To me, they both represent a higher state of where design and machinery intersect. And being in the watch business for all of my life (I’m a 4th generation watchmaker, and founder of TimeZone.com), I always seem to find a correlation between people who own fine luxury cars, and those who own fine luxury watches. Having said that, the world of watches is amusingly different than that of cars.

Cars Change, Watches Dont: Looking At Cadillacs & Rolex Over The Years feature articlesI’ve always played a little game in my head as to what car corresponds to which watch - like those matching games you’d play in the newspaper. So match the car with the watch... Here are a few of my matches: Panerai and BMW, Lange and Maybach, Patek and Mercedes, Jaeger and Lexus, IWC and Audi, and the quintessential American luxury car: Cadillac and Rolex. The luxury car and watch for the masses.

I was brought up in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and I remember so vividly the anticipation of the new car design lineups each September when the car companies released the next year’s models.Cars Change, Watches Dont: Looking At Cadillacs & Rolex Over The Years feature articles What shape would the car be?…how would the taillights look? Would the grill be redesigned? What colors would be available? What horsepower would the engines have? It was a veritable cornucopia of new head spinning stuff. In the same vein, when I became an authorized dealer for luxury watches, I couldn’t wait to go to the Las Vegas Jewelry and watch show each June and see what tasty morsels the gremlins from Switzerland had in store for us.Cars Change, Watches Dont: Looking At Cadillacs & Rolex Over The Years feature articles What shape design would the watches be, how would the case back show, what color dials would be available, what would the crown look like, and how many jewels would the movement have? It was a veritable cornucopia of new head spinning stuff (again).

But, I always seemed to scratch my head when I saw what new stuff Rolex would come out with… nothing really seemed to change for the most well-known models.

Rolex introduced their quintessential model, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust, sometime in the mid 1950’s. And it slowly evolved into the traditional model of today around 1957. Most of the models from this time were produced in yellow gold, although they did produce some in rose gold for the South American market. Rolex made the radical decision to release this watch in steel in the late 1950’s, and the watch took off. In fact, to Rolex’s surprise, the steel versions started to far outsell the gold models so much, that they decided to release the “two-tone” version in 1962 to fill in the marketing gap. And the rest is history. The Rolex “two-tone” Datejust became the quintessential Rolex watch.

Getting rid of spam via website email addys

by via-chicago

I get craploads of spam, lately offers for rolex watches and DVDs, but classically offers to make my penis larger and more erect, many people RE: things I never sent out and lots of FYI: too.
Anyhow, I know I am not alone and that there are many of you out there who have websites as well.
On my website I have three email addresses listed, one info@waterkillthesun.com, one booking@waterkillthesun.com and one gavin@waterkillthesun.com (me). Though many of the spams that come my way hit only one address, I get a lot that go to all three.
From what I understand this is because there are "bots" that sweep through websites and pick up email addresses, right?
Is there a way to elimnate or alleviate this problem? I get 40-100 nuisance emails a day
