Rolex is one of the most recognisable luxury brands in the world for many reasons. Collectors of vintage Rolex Bangkok love the romantic notion that classic models were made not just as jewellery or decoration. For instance, the GMT-Master was made at Pan-Am’s request for its pilots who experienced a jet-lag. They wanted to have a watch that told time for two time zones at once.
The Submariner was also made for divers. Rolex introduced its Milgauss in the 1950s for those who worked amid highly electro-magnetic environments such as nuclear research laboratories. This anti-magnetic watch could withstand extreme magnetism.
