The History:

Rolex brands need no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist, that was both highly reliable, functional, and durable, as well as stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality re-shaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.

The Watch:

The Ref 16710A has the “Coke” style bidirectional aluminum bezel, with a sapphire crystal. It has a stainless steel case, stainless steel 78790 Oyster-lock bracelet, and a water resistance rating of 100 meters. The Ref 16710 has white gold surrounds around the hour markers, which was done to prevent tarnishing on the dial over time, as well as tritium lume.
