Whether you need a watch for work or for going out with someone special now is a good time to get a great deal.

The consumer demand for watches is very low due to cell phones being the new go to item. Prices on watches have decreased but the craftsmanship and technology has increased to help promote sales. Some of the best deals are available if you know where to look. As a website owner I do a lot of shopping to find the best bargains on quality items to promote to my customers. That is what they want, high quality merchandise at the lowest price so I do the shopping and they save time and money.

Few companies have been so consistently identified with the pursuit of excellence, the quest for the absolute, the discovery of original approaches and innovative solutions.

Rolex watches have proved themselves from the start in the most extreme conditions imaginable – from the depths of the deepest oceans to the summits of the highest mountains, in the air and on the race track. And to ensure that all Rolex watches can live up to these high expectations, every single one is tested to extremes before it is allowed to leave the Rolex site.

The Perpetual movements that equip the Rolex models play a key role in the reputation for excellence of Rolex watches.

These self-winding mechanical movements, all rigorously certified as chronometers by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), are entirely designed and manufactured by Rolex based on common characteristics. These ensure high performance and adherence to uncompromising requirements in terms of precision, reliability, shock-resistance, efficient self-winding and ease of maintenance.

The history of Rolex and Swiss watchmaking are inextricably linked.

Pioneer in the development of the wristwatch, Rolex is at the origin of numerous major watchmaking innovations, and has registered over 400 patents in the course of its history.

Rolex designs, develops and produces in-house all the essential components of its watches, from the casting of the gold alloys to the machining, crafting, assembly and finishing of the movement, case, dial and bracelet.

Rolex or Timex

Getting a good deal, no matter if it is a work watch or a social watch everybody likes to save money. A high quality product that is reliable is the number one agenda. It is nice to know that a product is dependable especially when you plan to keep it for a lifetime.

As a gift a watch is one of the items that keeps on giving. Year after year everyone will remember who gave them something they really like especially if they use it or wear it often. Has anyone ever given you a nice watch?

I do a lot of DIY work and enjoy the benefits that come with it. In my experience that is when I really need an affordable work watch. Having scratched or damaged several watches while working I learned to wear a dependable affordable and tough watch. A Timex has been my go to work watch and I have had one of the Expedition series since 1993. It is still working and I like the way it lights up if I work late at night.

      My first watch when I was a kid was a Timex. The brand is dependable, fashionable and reasonably priced. I've had a stainless Rolex for 20 years and it will keep on ticking for many decades in the future.
