Cool Rolex Watches

The Classicist: James Bond Style - Project X's New British Military "Stealth" Rolexes

Project X Designs, the London-based Rolex customizer whose fans include "James Bond" star Daniel Craig, has come out with three new military-inspired "stealth" designs based on the classic Rolex Submariner and Rolex Explorer. The cool new models pay homage to Agent 007, the legendary British Special Boat Service (SBS) and military issue Submariners of 1950s – 1970s, original models of which fetch a small fortune at auction.

Richard Mille RM 028 Americas Limited Edition Dive Watch

Richard Mille's famous "basic" circa $80,000 dive watch now comes in a limited edition variant for the North American market. The RM 028 is complimented by the RM 025, which is many times more expensive. Special in this limited edition is a DLC black coating application all over the watch case, along with a red trim on the dial and crown. The RM 028 is 47mm wide in an all titanium, and is water resistant to 300 meters. You can read more about the standard RM 028 watch here - where you can learn more technical specifications. The watch contains a Richard Mille automatic movement with the date and a variable geometry movement.

Milus Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds DLC Watch

 One of my favorite "check me out and stare at me" complications is still the TriRetrograde movement module by Milus. Utterly pointless, the complication is nevertheless great to watch. It takes the seconds indicator and divides it up into three 20 seconds retrograde dials. Even after is release a few years ago, the Milus Tirion "still has it." Next on the list of variants of the collection is this DLC black model with a lot of carbon fiber.

Naked Rolex! Black Out Concept Skeletonized Daytona Watch

 A stripped Rolex, don't you feel naughty gawking at it... While skeletonized dial watches are popular, you don't see too many skeletonized Rolex watches. Actually, this is the first one I have seen where the dial has be cut away to display the movement. Rolex movements aren't super glamorous, even though they are hardy as a tank, and known for quality. Regardless, the brave people at Black Out Concept (known for making black colored or otherwise modified Rolex watches) gave a Rolex Daytona watch the skeletonized treatment. 

Richard Mille RM 011 DLC Titanium Orange Limited Edition Watch For America

Richard Mille sometimes offers special limited edition watches that are available only in North American markets. This is in addition to their other standard world-wide available limited edition watches. Given the complexity and expense of creating too many new models, Richard Mille breathes maximum life out of their impressive luxury watch models by adding color variations in limited quantities. This time the RM 011 watch is given a black DLC coated titanium case with orange trim in the dial and a rubber ring around the crown. The RM 011 watch in its iconic Richard Mille tonneau case has a skeletonized movement with the time, 12 hour chronograph, 60 minute countdown timer, and annual calendar with month and date. The watch is 40mm wide and 50mm tall.
