Horology is the study of the measurement of time. Clocks, watches, clockwork, sundials, hourglasses, clepsydras, timers, time recorders, marine chronometers, and atomic clocks are all examples of instruments used to measure time. In current usage, horology refers mainly to the study of mechanical time-keeping devices, while chronometry more broadly includes electronic devices that have largely supplanted mechanical clocks for the best accuracy and precision in time-keeping. People interested in horology are called horologists. That term is used both by people who deal professionally with timekeeping apparatus (watchmakers, clockmakers), as well as aficionados and scholars of horology. Horology and horologists have numerous organizations, both professional associations and more scholarly societies. The largest horological membership organisation globally is the NAWCC, the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, which is USA based, but also has local chapters elsewhere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horology
Start Your Rolex Horological Journey
It's no secret that Rolex watches, generally speaking, increase in value. Some more than others. Here are five that you should consider.
Rolex Pepsi GMT-Master II Ref. 126710
The new Pepsi Rolex (ref. 126710) is virtually unattainable, but Rolex Pepsi models, no matter the decade of production, go for well beyond their original retail price, so even if you can’t get a new one, a vintage model is still a great investment.
The Pepsi nickname refers to the red (day) and blue (night) color scheme, reminiscent of a Pepsi Cola can.
Rolex re-engineered the Jubilee bracelet for the revamped Datejust 41 model a few years ago. A long-time comfort and luxury oriented option, the Jubilee now had more built-in solidity and strength, therefore making it worthy once again of a professional application. For the 126710, the bracelet features brushed outer links with highly polished centre links, which create a very premium-looking two-tone effect. Adding to the comfort and security of this bracelet is the flip-lock clasp as seen on previous GMT and Submariner models. It operates with the bank vault confidence you would expect and integrates the extendable Easylink bracelet extension for those hot and humid days. All said, the Jubilee integrates very well with the GMT concept.
