In 2019, we released an interesting four-part series from Tim Mosso of Watchbox fame detailing the history, present and future of Rolex movements.
Tim has devoted hours and hours of research to this work, and now, as we settle into fall 2021, I thought it was worth bringing your attention to this series in case you would have missed it the first time.
If you haven’t seen it yet, grab your hat and settle into your seat: it’s a hell of a read.
