The 5 most popular models of all time


Since their release, many Rolex watch models have become icons that are admired by fans and collectors as well as watchmakers. The timepieces are known for their distinctive design: The style of Rolex watches is elegant and timeless.Many models have been visually altered only slightly over the last 50 years and continue to enjoy growing popularity. At the same time, Rolex is known for its consistent quality and reliability. Some of the most popular models are now known far beyond connoisseur circles and are regarded as classics. It is therefore worth keeping your eyes open for pre-owned and vintage Rolex watches when making a purchase.

  • Probably the best-known model is the Rolex Submariner, whose unmistakable style has been imitated countless times but never surpassed. It is undoubtedly the most popular watch model of all time and is owned by every luxury watch collector.

  • The Rolex Daytona is considered the iconic model of Rolex. The Swiss manufacturer produces this model only in very limited numbers, so the waiting lists are exceptionally long. For this reason, the Daytona is considered the model with the safest value retention and the highest collectors value.

  • The Rolex GMT-Master II was developed in collaboration with Pan American Airways who needed a watch that could display at least two time zones for their pilots. With its distinctive two-tone bezel, however, the GMT Master quickly became highly popular beyond it's target audience and was seen on the wrists of countless actors, musicians and astronauts.

  • The Rolex Datejust design-technically THE stereotype of a watch – classic, clean and tidy. The date is at this handcrafted Rolex, at three o'clock position and is provided with the Rolex typical magnifying glass. It was already presented in 1945.>

  • The Rolex Oyster Perpetual, launched in 1923, is an absolute classic and should not be missing from any Rolex enthusiast's range. Simple, elegant and timeless, it is the perfect entry-level watch.

  • The 1956 introduced Rolex Milgauss with the unmistakable second hand in the form of a lightning bolt. With a diameter of 40mm it is suitable for strong wrists. It is equipped with the reliable 3131 caliber which protects it against magnetism. This model quickly became one of our favorites.

Nicknames of Rolex watches


For beginners it can lead to confusion, but Rolex watch lovers will know immediately which watch is hidden behind nicknames such as "Hulk" or "Pepsi". Rolex watches get their nicknames for different reasons and often only over time. Some of these affectionate names are due to the color of the watch. "Coke" and "Pepsi" are Rolex GMT Master models whose bezel colors match those of well-known companies: the bezel of the "Pepsi" comes in blue-red, the "Coke" in red-black. Less obvious is perhaps the origin of the epithet "Batman" for Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR. Its bezel is black and blue, the latest version of the Batman model was presented in 2019 at Baselworld, it comes with a Jubilee bracelet and the reference 126710.

Similar origin in the comic world have the epithets "Hulk" and "Kermit". However, they refer to Rolex Submariner models. The "Kermit" is an anniversary model of the Submariner 16610 with black dial and striking green bezel, which is marked in the reference with the ending LV for "lunette verte" or "green bezel". His successor model with green bezel and green dial is referred to in expert circles as "Hulk" and has the reference 116610LV .

The Rolex Daytona "Panda" (Ref 116523) comes with a white dial with black sub-dials. Also on the Daytona "Ice Blue" the dial is decisive for the name: the ice blue dial of the platinum watch is surrounded by a maroon colored bezel. The same applies to the Oyster Perpetual "Azzuro Blue" (ref 177200), whose bright blue dial attracts attention. Other watches got their nicknames because of well-known personalities who wore them regularly on the wrist. The "Paul Newman" Daytona is the best example of this. The actor with the blue eyes helped the Daytona series to fame, as "Paul Newman" Daytonas are only watches with the reference 6239 Exotic Dial.
