RECOMMENDED READING: Does the collectible watch change over time?

If you've been reading what I've been reading over the last couple of weeks, you'll have noticed I'm particularly interested in how the primary and secondary watch markets interact with each other, and what that looks like in specific contexts like an auction room. All that leads to is a question: does the collectible watch change over time? One Instagram account I've been following with great interest for a little while is @AuctionLytics, a page that tracks the watch auction…

The Rolex Day-Date 40, olive-green goodness

Editor's note: While #BlueWatch Monday has inspired 24,000+ posts on Instagram, I wanted to start the week with a watch in the same chromatic neighbourhood, specifically the Rolex Day-Date 40 with olive green dial. Without a doubt, this has to be one of the best-looking Day-Dates that Rolex has ever produced (yes, I said one of the best, Mirka), with the warmth of the olive green sunburst dial perfectly complementing the radiant Everose gold case and bracelet. The other detail…
