Why Vintage Rolex Watches Inspired Us...
As avid lovers of cars, naturally the perfect luxury item to go along with those is watches. Ever since I (Harrison) watched Casino Royale in 2006 and saw Bond wearing an Omega Sea-master, I've been intrigued by the watch world. Sites like Hodinkee give a great look at collectors watches and one day whilst looking at the site's YouTube channel I came across this video. As a fan of John Mayer I was keen to see his taste in watches. Mid way through the video we see him show his Rolex Submariner Reference 1680 Issued To COMEX. I'm not sure why but the name COMEX seemed to stick in my mind and when thinking up a name for our business that name just seemed right.
A lot of people wear expensive watches to show off. In our minds that is simply not the point. The same goes with cars, we love them because of the time that goes into the engineering and research in the production process along with unparalleled feelings of emotion that come with the driving feel . So the COMEX Submariner is a watch that is extremely cool, a master of design and slightly under the radar. We love that!
Who knows, maybe one day we will both have one.
