TALES OF THE SEA: ROLEX AND NEW YORK CITY
Here is background on this release. Both New York City and Rolex share a long and storied history of the sea. New York City, of course, was founded as a seaport, strategically located at the mouth of the Hudson river and for most of its history was (and continues to be) a major port of entry to the United States. Nowadays, of course, most people arrive by air not by sea and most people work in non-Ocean related industries, so that relationship between New York City and the sea is less obvious than it would have been in say, 1820, or even 1900. Similarly, Rolex watches nowadays are seen as a brand that connotes vibrant style for both men and women, and many Rolex watch owners might be surprised to learn that the brand has a long history of relations to ocean and deep sea diving. The post explains some of this history and has pointers to more resources so that watch lovers can learn the fascinating history of Rolex and the sea. Finally, the recent Baselworld 2018 announcement by Rolex of the new Rolex Deepsea is discussed, bringing new attention to the watch and the sea. Indeed, many persons who may own a Rolex watch that was originally designed for deep sea exploration may use it in that way rarely, if at all. But the point is that the watch shows the synergies among art and science, man and the sea, form and function, and as such is a worthy timepiece for any man or woman who wants to combine history with elegance.
