Mike Wood Ultimate Vintage Rolex Collector

rpr_Rolex_MikeWood_oysterWorld

I’ve met a crazy bunch of Vintage Rolex Collectors that shared their obsession with me since i’m traveling around the world to meet them. Today I want to highlight my close friend Mike Wood! Not often I feel someone is sucked in the Rolex hole more then I did, the utmost respect therefor I have for guys like Mike. Always when we meet up, i’m flabbergasted! He start his own battalion of UK Military’s, or a diving team of Comex, all British Scuba divers with a vintage Sub or blast the world away with early Rolex Oysters Dating from around 1925-1955…

Beautifully we see the Evolution of the Rolex Oyster, that got transformed, after knocking down Mt. Everest, into a Tool Watches and little later Rolex famous Sports Watch Concept. Hans Wilsdorf & his director decided if a plain Rolex can get to the deepest Ocean Trench & the highest Mountain peaks, you can add a bezel to the case or chrono to the movement to enhance business opportunities. Giving those exceptional Explorer’s a Rolex besides great food for marketing Mr Wilsdorf was keen in playing with, a cheap and perfect way to  test your product, the best watch in the world!
