This week’s going to be a whirlwind with the PGA Championship swinging into Valhalla Country Club, where my family holds a membership. I’m plotting a little operation: Operation Rolex Entry. The plan? Sport my finest Rolex pieces in hopes of blending into the Rolex hospitality tent. Still need to crack the official entry code, but I figure flashing a classy Rolex should do the trick! As much as I love my Principia, it’s just not the right sidekick for infiltrating a Rolex-only zone. Now, a meteorite Pepsi... that might just be my secret weapon! ☄️

I'm absolutely captivated by those curvaceous lugs—the case profile is sheer perfection.

Image

Have you seen that handmade blue buffalo strap with cork lining? It's simply stunning! 🤩😍

Image

How can anyone not adore that case profile? When you consider the hours of meticulous handcraftsmanship that go into creating those complex shapes and a surfaces, it's absolutely mind-blowing. I love how they subtly flex their horological expertise with details like the lug shape and use of stainless steel bridges. Also, consider that the manufacturing process involves approximately 250 hours of hand finishing.

Image

I'll never tire of admiring those lugs. In my opinion, the 1941 case is destined to be remembered as one of the greatest in horological history. 😉

Image

The simple yet elegant pin buckle echoes the design of the lugs, demonstrating how Bart and Tim Grönefeld pay meticulous attention to even the smallest details.

Good luck to you Paul but with the Rolex lineup you have, gaining entry should be a non-issue!

Fingers crossed! 🤞 It should be an exciting week, even though I'm not a big golfer. I'm just hoping for good weather; thankfully, the members' tent is air-conditioned. I hope to get a good view of the golfers—I've been told that bringing binoculars is a smart move!

Best of luck! Looking forward to a great success and a solid match. Chers!
