PRLog - July 11, 2012 - COVENT GARDEN, U.K. -- The selection includes highly desirable favourites from across the Rolex range, including the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Yacht Master and Submariner. Vintage Seekers’ collection of classic Rolex watches comes with an illustrious history; their founder Hans Wilsdorf was the first to develop a precise and reliable wristwatch during a period where pocket watches were the de rigour.

This heritage and prestige associated with Rolex has meant that they present a great opportunity to own a classic example of watch history.
Vintage Seekers has chosen various examples of 20th century Rolex design to suit every taste.
A highpoint in the Vintage Seekers collection is a 1957 Rolex Submariner, the first wristwatch made for the new sport of scuba diving, illustrating Rolex’s ability to combine the practicality of sport with a luxurious design aesthetic. The 1973 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, meanwhile, embodies the brand’s commitment to luxury as well as functionality. Their designs have become something of a status symbol through Rolex’s prestigious reputation.
The evolution and range of their design aesthetic can be seen on many of the models chosen by Vintage Seekers. Rolex appeals to both men and women, with watches such as the 1978 Rolex Lady Datejust in 18ct gold making a sophisticated fashion statement.
Further highlights in the Vintage Seekers Rolex collection include a 1966 Rolex Submariner. An iconic watch first designed in the 1950s. Worn by the rich and famous globally, probably its most celebrated exponent is Ian Fleming’s James Bond; Bond wore this particular watch in the famous 007 spy-novels and on the silver screen in multiple James Bond films.
Rolex remain an excellent investment, making them hugely desirable both as a one off purchase or as an addition to a growing collection.
Vintage Seekers’ pride themselves on presenting a hand picked selection of Rolex designs from past centuries, a fitting tribute to the innovation and creative ingenuity of Hans Wilsdorf.
