HomeWrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game or Crying Shame: Rolex Air-King 14000 Wrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game or Crying Shame: Rolex Air-King 14000 Will you ascend the throne for €3,950? by Michael Stockton July 01, 2020 MIN READWrist Game or Crying Shame: Rolex Air-King 14000 Wrist Game Crying ShameWelcome back to Wrist Game or Crying Shame, the weekly serial where you get to play monarch. Let’s see if you’ll award the royal crown to the Rolex Air-King. But first…
Last week, I tried to present value to you in the form of a rare Breitling Superocean Chronoworks. It turns out that this rarity was caused by its initial price of nearly €40K! Even a reduction down to roughly €15,000 wasn’t enough to save this science experiment as it fell to a thundering 73% Crying Shame loss. That Breitling was once the brand’s veritable head of state, but was quickly deposed. Now let’s focus on a monarch with a far longer reign, the Rolex Air-King.

But what I found within that press release — news of the Czapek Antarctique Terre Adélie Secret Alloy automatic watch hitting the market — was enough to put a spring in my step for the next week. Obviously, I had to get it on my wrist as soon as possible.

Even after thousands of timepieces have passed through my possession, I remain surprised at how surprised I am still able to be. The more watches I encounter, the more I must remind myself to keep an open mind and to get them on the wrist. If I’d ignored that sage advice, I might still be sleeping on the Grand Seiko SBGW257 and SBGW259.
The Grand Seiko SBGW257 and SBGW259 watches would not have been watches I’d have gravitated to in the boutique. “Why not?” I hear you cry. “Do you not think they’re beautiful?” Well, yes, actually, I do think they’re beautiful.

Cartier Brings Together A Unique Community Of Celebrities For Launch Of The Pasha

Ever since its creation in 1985 has the Pasha de Cartier been the watch of people who enjoy style with a unique twist. While in essence, it is just a round watch, it was famed watch designer Gerald Genta who made it more, by adding the typical Vendome-lugs and canteen crown. It made the Pasha de Cartier the watch to have in the 1980s, a success which Cartier perpetuated well into the new millennium. What made the Pasha even more special is that it is a watch that was embraced by a very diverse and international clientele. For the launch of the new generation of the Pasha, Cartier is joined by a very talented group of artists who have each made their mark in different ways. Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams, and Jackson Wang are all at the top of their field, where they stand out by their professionalism but also by not conform or restrain their creativity by traditional standards, very much like the Pasha.
