Double Delight: Rolex Launches The Rolex Submariner Two Tone Watches

Rolex SubmarinerRolex is a name that has long been associated with a performance that redefines precision. To own a Rolex is not only a matter of immense pride but also an exclusive experience which it offers to its wearer. It provides a savoir-faire that is unparalleled. A Rolex is not merely a name in luxury but it is also a privilege of a few. Rolex knows this and its constant endeavor is to offer to its clients a range as varied as it can get but Rolex makes sure that it doesn’t compromise on quality for the sake of excelling in the field of exclusive watches. Rolex can claim loyalists because it has always prioritized newness and added the Rolex flavor to it.

The Rolex Submariner has been a long favorite of watch lovers, collectors and wearers over the world, and so Rolex wanted to reinvent the Submariner keeping in tune with the changing times. To experiment with a model that has aged gracefully riding on its popularity over the years is a daunting task. But Rolex has not gone back on their promise to deliver the best always. The Submariner now comes in a dual toned solid stainless steel case and an 18k Gold plated two tone solid stainless steel bracelet strap. The bands are linked together by screws that are threaded in a meshwork. The time indicating hands have gone through uplift and as a result of the projected effect it is easier to read time from a distance. The double delight continues as the aluminum bezel is replaced by a new high-end ceramic bezel. The aluminum bezel had a tendency to get easily scratched and the ceramic exterior now ensures that your prized possession is saved against any wear. The bezel has a provision for the numerical to be bedded in and prevent from abrasion. The style of this kind of a bezel is borrowed from the GMT Master and the Deep Sea Sea-Dweller models and Rolex has integrated it beautifully onto the Submariner.

Rolex SubmarinerThe protrusion of the dial is something that Rolex fondly calls a “Maxi-dial”. The case size is the standard Submariner 42 mm and the gold connection continues through the gold accents on the bezel, dial and if that were not enough onto the gold center link on the bracelet. The Submariner’s also a golden dual delight, as the watch has gold hands and indicators on the face of the dial. If you’re not a gold fan the all steel case version also comes with a white gold on the face option.

The selection of the color blue suits the Submariner perfectly. The lume that had been an envious green all along now turns a tranquil blue. The golden hands are highlighted in blue and offer cent percent clarity underwater. Rolex garners a beautiful tradition of keeping the Rolex family together, where each watch is different from the other but also borrows certain traits that make them a part of the Rolex lineage. Like the Sea-Dweller, the lume on the bezel of the Submariner is enclosed in a small case to save against damage from the forces. The Submariner is a watch that you could wear to a club or to an official meeting with equal élan. And so Rolex ensures that to lend the Submariner a mature look the case has to come in a brushed finish. The other parts of the watch make do with a glazed look. The dual toned Rolex Submariner like other Rolex watches is a certified chronometer and since at Rolex change is the only constant the Submariner in its new dual effect dazzles and delivers.

Shania Twain And Lady Perpetual; Raising The Bar

Lady PerpetualOne of the many remarkable things about Rolex watches is that everything about them is amazing. You may begin from anywhere, but will end up with only one conclusion that Rolex watches are absolutely amazing. Right from the time when the Rolex watches were first launched in the first quarter of last century to the present day Rolex has always created sensations with each of its offerings. The impact of its watches is so profound that Rolex not only beats its competitors handsomely but also raises the standard in every aspect of watches. Rolex Lady Perpetual belongs to the same bunch of striking watches. Similar to it Shania Twain is also recognized for raising the bar in everything she does. Just like the Lady Perpetual everything about Shania is awesome. Her looks make her the cynosure of all eyes and through whatever she does she ensures that she raises the bar. If there is one similarity that defines Shania Twain as well as Rolex Lady Perpetual then it definitely is raising the bar in everything they do.

Shania TwainShania Twain was born as Eilleen Regina Edwards on August 28, 1965 in the city of Windsor, Ontario. She spent most of her childhood in Timmins, also in Ontario. She had a beautiful voice as a child and it seemed eminent that she would make it big as a singer. She was invited to sing on the Tommy Hunter Show on CBC while she was only 13. Her impressive performance won her loads of accolades. She became the lead singer of a band called Longshot and sung many covers. She got her first chance at an album when she gave backup vocals for the song Heavy on the Sunshine. That was a small but significant step for her career. She did many songs for sometime till in 1993 she debuted with her self-titled album in US and Canada. The album received critical acclaim and reached # 67 on the US Country Albums Chart. The same album was far more popular in the European continent where she went on to bag the Rising Video Star of the Year award as well.

She achieved a bigger success with her second album ‘The Woman in Me’ and her very first single from the album reached #11 on the Billboard Country Chart. There were many others songs in the album that became huge hits. With the rising expectations of her fans Shania brought out her third album Come on Over. The smash hit album raised the bar of singing and put her on the enviable top position among country singers. Each of the songs on the album told a story which all combined together to form her success story. She was flooded with admiration and awards. This became the best-selling album of all times for a female singer and the best-selling album in the whole history of country music. The only thing she now needed to do was something Rolex does, i.e. maintain the highest levels already set and nothing could have match her. The next album she came out with was Up! which reiterated that she belonged at the top. The only sensible thing that should have been done was to bring out a Greatest Hits album and she did exactly that in year 2004.

Shania TwainLady Perpetual just like Shania has achieved all there is to achieve. The watch on its part looks stunningly beautiful with smoother lines and distinctively enhanced dials. The watch comes in steel and combination of steel and 18 ct white gold. With 100 m water resistance and Sapphire crystal, Lady Perpetual makes sure that just like Shania Twain it raises the bar in the world of watches.
