Rolex Day-Date history
In 1956 Rolex presents one of its most successful and most popular watches ever: the DAY-DATE, the first chronometer wristwatch which is selfwinding, waterproof and comprehensively indicates the date and the day of the week.

The Day-Date represented a worldwide innovation: it was the first watch to indicate the date in the three o’clock position, and the day of the week in the 12 o’clock position.

We can read in a 1963 Rolex catalogue that the calendar existed in eleven languages, in a Rolex leaflet in 1979 in 24, whilst in 1985 in 25...
The term “Master” indicates the most important position existing aboard a ship, and means “principal”, “leader”, and in our Rolex Universe the MASTERS
represent the most complicated watches.
The term “complication”, in horology, indicates each supplementary mechanism inserted into the watch movement, which has a different function above and beyond the simple visualization of the time.

Even though this definition of complication is universally recognized among collectors, a watch which has for example only a date or a chronograph is rarely defined...

Omega Speedmaster: the history
“Nobody could foresee the remarkable destiny of the first chronograph with a tachymeter scale on the bezel that Omega brought out in 1957”

The Speedmaster first appeared in 1957, following an idea by Pierre Moinat, creative director of Omega.
His plan was for a robust, waterproof chronograph on a band offering an easily read dial. The name, Speedmaster, was chosen as a suggestion for its use in the sport field.

Its fate took a stratospheric twist in 1965 when NASA chose this model for the astronauts that would land on the moon.

ROLEX DAYTONA : Why do the Rolex dials oxidize and change color sometimes?
The color change , which sometimes is very pleasant and creates fascinating patinas, is due to the fact that Rolex has always used organic paints for the dials. When the dials were not sufficiently protected by a transparent varnish called " Zappon " , the silver that composed these paints would get oxidized with the sulfur content in the air turning it patinated . These color changes are progressive and not settle with time , a factor that makes these dials unique specimens .
They are called by collectors " TROPICAL " .
The black dial of the reference 16520 from the period...

The 1970’s was an extremely difficult period for the Swiss watchmaking industry in general; we remember how, during that decade, the cutthroat competition of the “made in Japan” quartz watches forced the Swiss entrepreneurs to carefully review their organizations and to put their products through a major lifting surgery.

Patek Philippe management had foreseen the need for change, it was necessary to...
