Get to Know Our CEO: Matthew Becker’s Favorite Rolex Watches
Nearly two decades ago, BeckerTime came to be because of a shared passion between father and son. A passion for what, you ask? Classic, timeless watches and, specifically, Rolex watches. As a Rolex expert and enthusiast, we wanted to hear from our CEO Matthew Becker about his all-time favorite Rolex watches. So, without further ado…
All-time Favorite Rolex Models
- Rolex Explorer II 42mm
Known as the latest and greatest Explorer II model, the 42mm is an all-around remarkable timepiece with many of the original Rolex touches, such as the white dial with black trim and black engraved 24-hour bezel. One of the most popular, larger sized Rolexes watches, this watch feels like it’s meant to be on your wrist.
- Rolex Two-Toned Submariner
Two-toned, 18k yellow gold and stainless steel make this Rolex not only a classic but also one of the most iconic. The 1990s, Two-Toned Submariner is a watch people automatically associate with Rolex. During Becker’s financial planning days, one of his bosses wore this watch and left a long-lasting impression on him; the Submariner represents success.
And since the relationship with a Rolex is sometimes love and sometimes lust (hence our BeckerTime Lifetime Tradeup Guarantee), Becker has a few favorite Rolex watches for the moment. Only time will tell if these turn into long-lasting love affairs.
For The Moment Favorite Watches
- Rolex Vintage Datejust Turquoise
It’s hard to capture the true beauty of the turquoise dial, but when picking a Rolex dial, turquoise is easily one of the best color options. It’s eye-catching but conservative and classic. Sought after by many watch collectors, this vintage, custom 1960s Datejust model features a stainless steel jubilee bracelet. It’s a watch people will stop to admire!
- Rolex GMT Master II
Both the black dial with white illuminating markers and black ceramic 24-hour bezel are a few reasons why the GMT Master II is one of Becker’s current favorites, as well as one of the hottest Rolex watches on the market. This watch also features a stainless steel oyster band with a Rolex signed clasp, which is a newer, heavier style SEL band.
- Romain Jerome Liberty DNA
While not a Rolex, this limited-edition Romaine Jerome Liberty DNA watch can’t be overlooked. Due to the unique blue-green color and bronze bezel, the DNA is a tribute to Lady Liberty. With only 125 available for purchase, the DNA contains many original Romain Jerome touches. We believe it’s simply a must-have collector’s item.
