Or Cartier, Patek Philippe, etc. The answer is maybe not. Fine watches are generally statements. Instead of just indicating the time they speak for you before you speak for yourself. When you enter a room wearing a fine timepiece other people do take notice. It becomes part of your persona. A gold timepiece peeking from beneath the sleeve of a fine suit shows that you appreciate the finer things in life and that you value your time. It can even tell them that you'd appreciate it if they valued your time, too. The right watch can let them know that you enjoy your leisure time as well. Diving and High End sport watches have become as popular in the boardroom as they are in the great outdoors. Watches are tools and they can have specific purposes or can be used within a broad spectrum of environments. The quintessential Rolex is the Oyster Perpetual. It comes in a wide range from the classic Date or Datejust, to the Presidential, to sport versions like the Submariner, Yachtmaster, or the GMT. These are designed for extreme water resistance and are available in Stainless Steel, Steel & Karat Gold, all Karat Gold, or even Platinum. Rolex makes another line of completely dress watches - the Cellini collection. The Cellini line doesn't have the water resistance or the rough and ready appeal of the Oyster line. Instead the Rolex Cellini makes up for the lack of hardiness by being thin and elegant with variations included gem encrusting.
A fine timepiece is a mechanical marvel. It may have been created by man but it mimics the work of a higher "authority". Have you ever noticed that a watch is somewhat like the human heart? It functions, for the most part, flawlessly 24 hours per day and 7 days a week. In fact, like the human heart, you only really take notice of it when it malfunctions. Like a heart it needs very little day to day care. Make no mistakes it does require attention from time to time. Jewelry & Timepiece Mechanix can handle all your watch and clock repairs - even the "impossible" ones.
