Watch 48 Rolex

This Rolex watch with Olongapo Strap was submitted by Chicks With Watches (instragram user @chickswithwatches)

'First up, one of my father's Rolexes on a handcrafted Olongapo strap. These straps were very popular for soldiers who were doing tours in Vietnam back in the 60's and 70's. Back then, there were artisans a plenty who crafted these for GI's. My dad said back then (he was 17-18 when he was a US Navy medic corpsman) he didn't understand the "coolness" of them. When he realized as an adult, he couldn't find any artists who could make one....until he found Jaffy Jurado in the Philippines a few years ago. Needless to say , my dad had a strap hand crafted for his Rolex. Here she is....my father, a retired Navy Seal medic corpsman would be THRILLED to see this in one of your GORGEOUS pieces.'

'I don't speak english very well but I l'll try to answer:

I receive this watch for my 20th birthday. This is the new gmt-2 (2013). This model is special because the bezel cerachrom has 2 colors for the second time zone: the blue one for the day and the dark one for the night. The hand of the second time zone is blue.'

'I bought this watch because it s from my birth year and i thing it s the most beautiful chronograph ever.'

Now nearly a third of the way through the '100 Watches Project' I finally feel that my technical skills are beginning to catch up to the brilliant details in each of these watches. Take a look at the Rolex crown and the detail in the bezel. The image is starting to sing.

Arik says of this watch, 'It was given to me by my uncle as a present for graduating from a law school. He said that there are a lot of sharks in this business so I need a right instrument to swim with them! He was right by the way, the watch served me well in all occasions ever since.'
