It would be hard to overstate the importance of Rolex in modern horology. Their timeless designs are instantly recognisable, and their technological innovations numerous. Discover more about Rolex than meets the wrist at Time+Tide.

Mythbusting four Rolex myths, from The Great Escape, to the English Channel to British Columbia

"When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." That line — from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, the classic western starring John Wayne and James Stewart — nails the way in which some tales become impossible to resist. Certain details might prove apocryphal. Slabs of the narrative turn out to be completely made up. But we choose to avert our eyes from these exaggerations because, well, they get in the way of a cracking yarn. What's all this got to…

IN-DEPTH: The Rolex Explorer II Ref.216570, sleeper classic or on the brink of extinction?

Let me start this review with an admission: I thought the Big Crown was going to turf many of its current models in 2020. The Milgauss, for example, is well past due for an evolution from its current form, if it remains at all. Likewise, the Air-King – which stylistically borrowed heavily from a set of dash clocks made for a land speed record car that Rolex no longer has any affiliation with – was also rumoured to be disappearing…

The Rolex Submariner vs the Tudor Pelagos, which is the better dive watch pound for pound? An enthusiast's perspective

Editor's note: While our daily work at Time+Tide revolves around new models, this is not – in the main – how most of you experience watches.

IN-DEPTH: The 2017 Rolex Sky-Dweller is getting better with age, and these pictures and video prove it

Michael Jordan has just reminded us of the modern classic in our midst that is the latest iteration of the Rolex Sky-Dweller, relaunched in 2017. And while Part 2 of his collection gave me, as a fortunate and fairly fanatical Big Pilot owner (oh, what a watch), a kick to be on team MJ, it also reminded me of a Rolex I've not yet managed to bring to earth and to my wrist. That 2017 Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller. I went…

The watches of Michael Jordan, part 2, including IWC, Richard Mille, Urwerk and more

The world's gone MJ all over again with the first two episodes of the documentary celebrating his life, The Last Dance, dropping yesterday. We're in tune with the GOAT, with Part 1 of his watch collection being published last week. Today, we bring you Part 2, which continues his Airness' brilliantly eclectic choices. From pilots to RM Divers, he knows no bounds. IWC Big Pilots MJ is a fan of the brand from Schaffhausen and owns three different Big Pilot…
