When Rolex speaks, like it or not, everyone listens...

Whatever Rolex announces grabs attention. They could issue a press release about what the chairman had for breakfast, and it would probably make the front page of most watch-related media. We might even make a Swiss-breakfast themed podcast about it (“So tell me Jon, have you ever tasted egg and bacon fondue?”)

Imagine then, the frenzy of excitement that followed the announcement of Rolex’s new watch releases at the beginning of September. Not only do we have new colours for the Oyster Perpetual, but also a paradoxical Submariner that’s bigger but looks smaller: among many other things.
Joining Anthony, Ben, Jon and Tim is regular guest Neil Duckworth as we analyse all the new releases from Rolex – and prepare to move into Tim’s ancestral home in France. One day.

Sit back and enjoy!
