Back In Black

T Magazine points our way to a new collection of special edition Rolex watches given the "all black everything/murdered out" treatment.  All of these redone vintage timepieces were produced in limited batches of 50 each and attempt to channel the now imfamous watches "supposedly released by Rolex in the late 1960s for the Royal British Army soldiers stationed in South Africa."  Check out the website here.  Rolex + mythology + matte black = one bad mama jama.

  7. Anon- Well I'll be damned if that's not the cheapest Rollie I have ever seen.

    But on a serious note, that is the cheapest imitation out there.

  8. Some might argue that the Timex is classic and understated, while Rolex is a typical conspicuous,ostentatious product of the consumer society.

  9. Anon- I can totally see your argument, but let's be honest, would you rather have a Timex or a Rolex?
