One of the most esteemed vintage Rolex models is the Cosmograph. Composed of the highest-quality stainless steel and solid 18K gold, it features chronograph pushbuttons and a screwed-down Triplock winding crown. Simply put – it is one of the finest watches in the world. The Cosmograph was introduced to the Rolex family in 1962. Its class and reliability have been demonstrated by the iconic actor and race car driver Paul Newman, who allegedly wore a Cosmograph Daytona every day from 1972 until his death in 2008.
Another classic vintage Rolex which is internationally renowned, and not simply for its esthetic value, is the Rolex GMT-Master II. True to Rolex’s ambition to serve those pushing the boundaries of human achievement, it was originally designed to meet the demands and needs of international pilots. With its proven durability to withstand long distance flights, the authentic aviator’s timepiece is proclaimed to be the watch of skies. A testament to Rolex’s strength as makers of complications, the pilot could concurrently read the time in three different time-zones. The mature and cultivated design has made it one of Rolex’s most iconic timepieces. The Rolex GMT-Master II is among the most loved watches in our collection.
