Hi Sir, possible to do a Milgauss 116400GV review? black dial vs blue dial. Thanks

Lamb Sauce says:

The word Rolex is not an actual word from a dictionary or something. It just sounds expensive…

Jeffrey Bowden says:

My fun fact is their watches have to be sent back to Rolex for servicing, to the tune of $600 plus shipping both ways and you better hope no new parts are required.

Sameenah Begh says:

such amazing quality

Sylvio Bertoli says:

Youtube’s finest channel for watch reviews. Well done!

Cirkustanz says:

Wow, I had no idea Rolex didn’t technically make its own movements until 2004. That’s crazy! I’ve generally not paid much attention to Rolex because I just don’t like their style, but I’m surprised.

The more I learn about watch brands…the more I recognize that a lot of their mystique is just nothing other than marketing.

I had to pause at “Paris-based celebrity and entrepeneur Alberto Santos-Dumont”… Brazilian aviation pioneer would be more accurate.

ChawenHalo 008 says:

Didn’t Rolex invent the metal bracelet for wrist watches?

Arthur twosheds says:

I never deal with anyone other than Watchfinder . Complete professionals . I’m not wealthy so can’t take chances .

R Jensen says:

To add on. Rolex is registered in Switzerland, as Charity, so that they don’t have to pay Tax on their Profits.. Yet no one seems to lknow, what charitable deeds Rolex perform. Knowing how Swiss think, I would be too surprised, if Rolex charitable donations didn’t cater for “Swiss Bankers without Yachts” cause ?
