Vacation season: What watches to bring?

It’s that time of year when people start heading out of town just to get away, clear their minds and unwind. What watch or watches do you take with you?

Time only: You’re on vacation. Why do you need to know how soon it’s going to end? You might just need to know when Happy Hour starts. It’s a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of a time-only watch. Land at your destination, listen to the current time at your new location, pop out the crown and with a quick adjustment you’re on local time.

Rugged beater: Adventure awaits. You might be traversing a nearly vertical rock formation during your hike into the clouds. After the hike you descend on a rented bicycle, which takes you on a surf session in powerful 3-footers. It’s time for the super durable and affordable watch that you don’t have to worry about. This one is simple: Head to Macy’s and pick up a gaudy G-Shock.

Transitions well: So you might be throwing on a blazer to enjoy the finest local cuisine. Some wine pairings may be involved. But before that, you’ll be lounging poolside in board shorts. Take a watch that is less on the casual side but can still take a dip. Think smaller and thinner.

Ballin’ out: We understand. You’ve worked very hard to earn your place in the business world. Your watch is a symbol of your hard work. Rock your big gun on vacation.

Complete roster: You love your children the same. Each is different, but all have unique qualities that make you smile. You can’t pack up that RV, just make sure it’s the Everest watch roll. Switch out your watch three (or five) times a day. Make sure you also bringing matching kicks.

Baselworld 2018: Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller with new movement and new case

The king of dive watches, the 2018 Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller comes in a slightly new incarnation as announced in the 2018 Baselworld show. This watch is loved by its fans who embrace it’s oversized case and incredible technical capabilities.

The 2018 version (referecnce 126660) features a movement upgrade and a case that offers 22mm lug widths vs. the previous 20mm lug width. This was the main criticism of the older version and in the flesh, Rolex appears to have fixed this perceived flaw. After all, this is a big watch, the bracelet connection should be proportional. The bracelet now also has a Glidelock (for minute adjustments) and Fliplock (to use the wetsuit extension) on the clasp.

Rolex also added its 3250 movement, which delivers a 70-hour power reserve. The Deepsea Sea-Dweller is one of our favorite Rolex watches just on its pure boldness. Not everyone can pull it off, but for those that can, the Deepsea just works.

The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller 2018 Baselword offers new proportions and new movement.
