Rolex wasn’t Josh’s initial invasion into the universe of pleasant watches, yet in the wake of building up a companionship with Allen Brill (the late CEO of Rolex USA), he got truly into the brand and in the long run got his first Rolex, a Sea-Dweller, which he cherishes for its unfathomable form quality and absence of a Cyclops magnifier. From that point forward, he’s had the bug and has added a couple of more Rolex watches to his assortment, including this “Kermit” Submariner that was delivered for the Sub’s 50th commemoration in 2003. It was difficult for him to find one, yet he found an extraordinary model and wears it much of the time right up ’til the present time. It’s an uncommon thing without being showy, which is only the sort of watch Josh likes.
