The brazen thief, wearing sunglasses, asked to try on the Rolex

When she showed him the Rolex Sea-Dweller watch, he tries it on, and when she tries to get something on a nearby shelf, the man fled with their most expensive watch.

Now the store is offering a $1000 reward to catch the Rolex watch thief. They are also adding a security staff to prevent such incident. The CCTV footage helped a lot to know the identity of the man. Authorities are now searching for this culprit.
This year, there have been hundreds of cases involving watch stealing. The major case recorded happened in Illinois few months ago where a man was stabbed and the suspect stole his jewelries including his Rolex Sea Dweller watch.

Authorities advised people that when a thief tries to get their things, they should give it instead no matter how expensive they are. It is better than to exchange your life with it.
According to Lynn James, she will recognize the face of that man if she saw him again. She tries to run after him but the man was too fast. It seems that he already knows what he’s doing.
Jewelry stores nowadays, particularly those that sell expensive items including Rolex watches should have a tight security. This safeguards them as well as their store. Having a CCTV is a must. It is the best tool to monitor all the people that enter and exit the store.

Michael Jordan Rolex Daytona Platinum

Michael Jordan #23 & Platinum Rolex Daytona

The Greatest Basketball Player Who Knows His Timepiece Well

Michael Jordan #23 & Platinum Rolex Daytona

When talking about basketball, it cannot be prevented for the name Michael Jordan to come up. In a way, this sport personality served as the signature of the overall athletics industry. He is even recognized as the greatest athlete in the sports industry, just as how the line of Rolex timepieces is known for.
Michael Jordan and Rolex have a big connection. This connection started when he began playing as a professional basketball player and wearing Rolex watches. At this point, it can only be assumed that this timepiece keeper is already filled with different Rolex watches. Just consider all the photos taken with Jordan wearing different Rolex watches and you can only assume how many of these he already owns.
But, in all those times when he wore Rolex watches, the most significant moment of it was during the Platinum Rolex Daytona’s 50th Anniversary. The event was in the same day when he was watching his own NBA basketball team.

Platinum Rolex Daytona And its 50th Anniversary Edition

In the recent photos seen with Michael Jordan during the anniversary, he was not only seen wearing the Platinum Rolex Daytona, but its 50th anniversary edition. Rolex introduced the model in commemoration of its 50th year. This particular model served as the mark of the very first time in which Rolex made a Daytona model that is in platinum.

The Make and Features of the Platinum Rolex Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition

The most noticeable new feature in this Daytona model is the color scheme in which it was made. It is featured in the combination of brown and blue. The material’s make was also changed, which is something that came as a surprise to those who are waiting for its release. No matter these changes, it still remained in the same size – 40mm. Its case is made from 950-platinum paired with a ceracrhom bezel in chestnut brown. The dial is in ice blue color, which is one that is then only exclusively used on every platinum model.

The colors brown and blue may be a surprise to Rolex enthusiasts, but the combination perfectly sits well in metal. There is the bracelet in 3-piece solid Oyster, which is also made from platinum. Wearing the watch, there is not a bit of complaint you can make about it since it feels good on the wrist.

Many people may have feel shocked with the platinum make in which the new model of Rolex Daytona was released. The sole reason for this is that it was not purposely made for watch buyers, but to seasoned collectors of timepieces. But it could still work finely to general buyers if they appreciate the new look of the model.

Even as a surprising new make, many people would still learn to love the new look and how the Platinum Rolex Daytona was designed. Of course, those who already owned a number of Cosmographs will naturally feel compelled to have this single platinum model. Whatever the release of Platinum Rolex Daytona made enthusiasts feel, it still remained a fact that this model is seen as a significant addition to the Rolex Line and collection.

TIMEKEEPING ICON: ROLEX SEA DWELLER

TIMEKEEPING ICON: ROLEX SEA DWELLER

 

As men were pioneering ways to explore and live in outer space in the 1960s, another groundbreaking initiative was taking place closer to home, in an equally hostile environment: the ocean. Parallel efforts by the U.S. Navy, the French commercial diving firm COMEX and diving legend Jacques Cousteau were developing a way for man to live on the ocean floor by breathing a gas mixture made up of a majority of inert helium combined with oxygen. “Saturation diving”, as the new method was called, greatly increased possibilities for living underwater by removing the need to frequently come to the surface to decompress.

 

Cousteau’s Conshelf habitats, COMEX’s deep diving bells and the Navy’s SEALAB program had brave volunteers living on the sea floor for up to a month at a time. Aside from the obvious physical stresses this involved, another problem was discovered: the crystals of their watches were blowing off upon decompression at the end of their time on the seabed. A new dive watch was needed, and Rolex responded with the now-legendary Sea Dweller.

 

Rolex sea dweller

Helium atoms are small — so small that they can penetrate even a tightly sealed dive watch used inside a helium-saturated underwater habitat. Under the pressure exerted by the deep ocean, this has no consequence. But during the decompression phase, as the diver is slowly brought back to surface pressure at the end of a job welding oil pipeline or conducting experiments, the helium inside the watch expands and builds up pressure. With nowhere to escape, the quickest exit tends to be the watch crystal, which pops off with dramatic effect and renders the watch useless. The answer to this unique puzzle seemed to be a simple one-way valve fitted in the watch case that could pop open when the inside pressure reached a certain point, releasing the helium inside. Some accounts attribute the original idea for this“gas escape valve” to COMEX, who worked closely with Rolex, while others give credit to U.S. Navy SEALAB diver Robert Barth, who approached a Rolex USA representative at a diving trade show. The truth is probably a little of both. Regardless of its exact origins, the result was the Rolex Sea Dweller.

The very first Rolex Sea Dweller, a prototype rated to 1,500 meters without a gas escape valve, was designed for use in the SEALAB project; at least some of the 20 prototypes built were issued to Navy divers. An example of this extremely rare model, known today as a “Single Red Sea Dweller” to collectors due to its one line of red text on the dial, sold at auction for half a million dollars in 2012. The first Rolex with the new gas escape valve was probably a reference 5513 Submariner retrofitted for COMEX. But it wasn’t until 1967 when the extreme depth rating and the first-of-its kind release valve came together in the reference 1665 Sea Dweller, the first commercially available model.

The reference 1665 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Submariner 2000, as it was known, sported an impressive 2,000-foot (610m) depth rating. This was made possible by a case and crystal that were slightly thicker than those on a Submariner — a watch that could “only” withstand a depth of 200 meters. The “Sea Dweller” and “Submariner 2000” lines of text were both printed in red on the earliest models, leading collectors to nickname it the “Double Red Sea Dweller”. Later, the standard became white text; that deviation may seem small, but the Double Red, or DRSD, is worth twice as much as the “Great White” Sea Dweller on today’s vintage market.

The last iteration of the Sea Dweller came about in 1978, when Rolex updated the watch with a sapphire crystal, upped its depth rating to 4,000 feet, and added a quickset date feature and a larger helium escape valve. This reference 16660 was first fitted with a matte dial and white gold marker surrounds. It later transitioned to the glossy dial found on all modern Rolexes, and took up the slightly tweaked “reference 16600″ name. Rolex sold the Sea Dweller until 2007, when it was discontinued to make way for the Sea Dweller DeepSea, a 3,900-meter water resistant leviathan that shares little in common with the past Sea Dwellers beyond its nomenclature.

The Sea Dweller was never as popular as the Submariner, probably due to its thicker and heavier case. Still, this relative obscurity is part of what has endeared it to collectors for years, and more than ever. This was a pure example of a purpose-built watch, and unlike anything the world had seen. There’s no contrived aura around the watch that brands so often try to imbue upon their timepieces today. Quite to the contrary. The Sea Dweller earned its bones the hard way, through trial and error in the hostile deep.
