Graduating is a very important milestone in a person’s life. Whether your daughter is graduating from high school or college, it signifies growth and is the start of the next journey in her life. As a result, it should be celebrated – it means your daughter is one step closer to reaching her full potential.
In order to show your pride and appreciation, it is customary to get someone a gift when they graduate. This could be anything, which can often make the decision of what to choose a difficult one. With that in mind, here are six inspiring and appropriate gifts to give your daughter for her graduation.
Flowers are a graduation gift that your daughter is sure to love and appreciate. Depending on their type and color, they can have a variety of meanings: love, pride and even appreciation. These flowers can be displayed in your daughter’s bedroom or apartment, and will not only improve how the space looks, but also fill it with a wonderful scent.
There are many reasons why a flower bouquet is a perfect gift. They are very versatile, timeless, affordable and convenient for everyone involved. Also, in addition to being great for graduations, flowers are great for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day and various other holidays.
A Piece of Jewelry
Jewelry is another classic graduation gift. Giving your daughter a new necklace, ring, bracelet or pair of earrings is a lovely option to consider. You could even engrave the jewelry with a special message or quote. This could inspire them, make them happy, remind them of home or tell them anything you’d like.
The right piece can also help your daughter keep up with the latest jewelry trends, as well. If you want to show your pride in your daughter, and help her look and feel her best, some new jewelry can do just that. Every time she wears it, she will think of you and the support you gave her throughout her journey in school.
A Subscription Box
A subscription box is another good choice. These have taken off in recent years and there are dozens of different ones your daughter is sure to love. These boxes ship products to your daughter each and every month, right to her door. You can choose from beauty boxes, snack boxes, wine and spirits boxes, or relaxation boxes. If she has an interest, there is probably a subscription box for it.
A unique box might also help her discover a new hobby, work on her skills in the kitchen, learn more about a new topic or even add to a hobby or collection she already has. Many of the items in these boxes can be customized, making them completely exclusive to the recipient.
If your daughter is an avid reader, a thoughtful book can be a great gift. This could be an inspiring book about her future and how to best reach her potential, or even a book all about entertaining her to make her laugh. The choice is yours and will depend on what she likes.
If she’s always on the go and cannot always bring a bulky book or multiple books with her, consider getting her an e-reader. These can store plenty of books on them, and are very convenient to take wherever she goes.
People love technology and most of us rely on it daily. If your daughter is a techie, a new type of tech she doesn’t have is a great gift idea. Wireless earbuds, a new laptop, or a smart speaker are just some of the many options out there. If you are not sure what she would like, consider getting a gift card to an online tech store, so she can choose exactly what she wants.
Household Goods or Appliances
If your daughter has her own place, is going to college soon or is moving out, some household goods or appliances are other great gifts to consider. This could be a fancy blender, a new coffee maker, a good food processor or anything in between. While they might not be the most exciting, they are very useful and will be much appreciated in the long run.
In addition to being incredibly useful and saving her some money, these can help inspire your daughter to think about her future. Once she moves out and finds her own place, she will think of you every time she uses the item, and will appreciate all you had to do to support her growth over the years.
Get a Graduation Gift She Is Sure To Appreciate
A graduation is a big deal in a person’s life and should be celebrated. Any of these six ideas are great ideas to give your daughter to celebrate her graduation and all the hard work she put in to reach her goal.
Oscar Stone LTD is a family-owned jewelry firm based in the Bronx, New York. Oscar Stone sells timeless jewelry, including customizable earrings, watches, bracelets, pendants, chains, and mouth grillz, which are all created from the beginning to the end internally. Oscar’s most popular article, baguette diamond earrings, dazzle his clients with their blinding beauty. Oscar Stone recognizes the value of using durable diamonds and jewelry from the Bronx community.
While lockdown created a lull for other companies, Oscar used the downtime to bolster his burgeoning business. His reach on social media via Instagram featured Oscar to many celebrity customers, including Jojo Simmons, Young Dirty Bastard, and Kid Capri, among others. Oscar Stone‘s jewelry exudes a true dedication to his craft, which is why his extensive list of clients keeps expanding.
The last authentic district of New York, the Bronx, houses the next largest jeweler in New York. Oscar Stone LTD stands apart from other jewelers such as Jacob the Jeweler, Greenwich Street Jewelers, and Martin Busch Jewelers because of its innovative approach to bespoke jewelry and sustainable practices and inspirational dedication to their craft. Oscar’s relentless pursuit of fine diamonds and customer satisfaction during the pandemic has allowed his business to flourish more than ever. Looking to the future, Oscar aims to continue creating custom designs for his customers and grow his business to become a familiar name.
We talked with Oscar about his background in gemology, his favorite custom orders, and his business expansion plans in the Bronx.
How did you get started in making jewelry and performing gemology for Oscar Stone?
I’m a G.I.A. accredited gemologist. Basically, growing up my whole life, [my] family– aunts, uncles, cousins– we all just did jewelry. So getting the jewelry was the easy part. It’s a family trade, really; it’s one of our best-kept secrets.
How did you build your clientele when you began in the jewelry business?
I knew about jewelry; gold wasn’t something crazy new to me. It’s like all your aunts and uncles own auto repair shops–you fix a couple of the tires, do a couple of oil changes, and you just kind of figure it out by yourself. When I had my own spot, building my clientele did really start from scratch. I didn’t have any celebrities or influencers, so I just had to open up shop and see what I could do. Before I did that, I actually did go to GIA (Gemological Institute of America) diamond school. I knew that GIA offered courses for this type of stuff. I spent a couple of months educating myself–[even] just [concerning] diamonds; there’s so many things about diamonds.
Once I finished the education, I decided to really bring in some clients. I was in business for about three years, and then I just started going heavy on social media. Once I started publishing my work on social media, the followers started coming. You know, not[hing] crazy yet, but I started getting a couple thousand [followers]. That’s when the business started taking off. I started hiring friends of mine and a lot of people, [and] my staff grew from four or five people to like twenty-five people. Business exploded when I started getting people who were verified on Instagram and had 300–400,000 followers. Once I started getting those clientele, the ball really started rolling. And that’s where we are now, about a year later.
What celebrities/notable clients have you done jewelry work for?
How do you source the best diamonds/gems for jeweling?
I don’t always get the same diamonds from the same supplier. The reason is, once you start working with somebody for diamonds and you guys get comfortable, then they start sending you lesser quality parcels. A parcel is basically like a bag of diamonds, [which come in] a lot of different sizes. They should all be the same clarity, and you sort through them to see that the quality is consistent.
I can buy 50 carats of diamonds this month [or] this week, and then I’ll run out by making all the jewelry. And so, I need to reorder. If the quality starts to become inconsistent with the price that I’m paying, I’ll switch over to another diamond supplier. Most of my diamond suppliers are in India, so I’ve had to fly out there a few times and look at some parcels, look at some factories, and see how they’re all doing it.
[Or, for example,] if I have to build a watch and do it three weeks, and [clients] don’t give me enough time, I have to get [diamonds] local[ly].
What is your favorite jewelry design you sell?
My favorite designs [are] always the custom pieces I make. I always love doing custom work, I just love like how intricate they are. I just did a piece for a client of mine–it’s this huge custom piece that spins when you spin it. I’ve had the most fun working on it, that’s my favorite piece right now. I’m working on another one that might top it, but we’re gonna keep it under wraps for now.
What is your jewelry specialty?
My signature I would say is the baguette earrings, that’s what most people know me for. Out of all my followers, I would say 20,000 of them might have been from the baguette earrings.
I do really, really good with the baguette diamond earrings that are on my website. I could sell as many as 20 pairs a day. A lot of people [who] are from out of state buy that. A lot of people [come] in store as well. The baguette diamonds are just such a popular thing for me right now. I have to make hundreds and hundreds of pairs just to keep up with demand.
What is the most popular order you receive from clients?
The baguette diamonds are just like something you really don’t see out of New York. And so, people love them. It’s also my bread and butter…It’s gonna go, it’s gonna sell, and sell classic.
What’s next for you?
I’m going to be moving to another location on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx–I’m true to the Bronx, I don’t wanna leave the Bronx. So, I’m moving to a store that is down the block from me. It has three times the retail space, and a basement attached to it. I’ll be able to really put a factory down there. As long as the people keep loving my jewelry and what I do, I’m going to keep delivering the best I can. To do that, and to give the best prices, you need to do things in-house. I’m going to have a 1500 sq ft basement where I’ll be able to put ten diamond setters down there and set diamonds all day. The second floor will be an office to do all the online [work]. On the floor-level will be retail and the showroom, so people who want to see things in-person, I can show them right there. That is my short-term goal in the next one or two years. Long term, I want to be a household name, but one thing at a time.
A glitzy collaboration between celebrity jeweler, Greg Grillz, and wide receiver for the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, JuJu Smith Schuster, has resulted in a dazzling new line of custom grillz and high-end jewelry. The collection’s pieces are lovingly handmade in Los Angeles and available on Greg’s website. The duo also specializes in making one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, such as customized chains, rings, watches, bracelets, and more. Brought together their friendship and a mutual appreciation for jewelry and fashion, JuJu and Greg’s partnership is a marriage of sport and luxury style. Here at 360 Magazine, we sat down with Greg Grillz and babbled about baubles, business, and big-name celebrity collaborations to come.
How did this collaboration between Greg Zaks, aka Greg Grillz, and JuJu Smith-Schuster begin? Who originally brought up the idea for a partnership?
Greg: I’m born and raised in Los Angeles and met JuJu through mutual friends while he was attending and playing football at USC. We immediately clicked. I was just starting in jewelry at the time and actually made him his first set of grillz. It was a simple gold bottom fang but that piece solidified our friendship. He loved them so much he asked me to make a custom pendant shortly after. Over the next few years we stayed in touch and JuJu kept an eye on my growth. One day he reached out and was curious to know more about my brand and the jewelry business. From there we had a conversation about working together which made it clear we had to solidify the partnership.
How did Zaks begin his venture into the jewelry business?
Greg: I have always loved and appreciated jewelry, but I never imagined being in the jewelry space until I reconnected with an acquaintance of mine who was a well-known jeweler back in 2013. As a college student, I began working him while his business was really taking off. He was like the don of Instagram back then, doing a bunch of jewelry pieces for celebrities like the Kardashians. I had a lot of ideas to improve the business that were rejected and shut down, so I came up with the idea to start my own company. This ended up turning into my prized possession, Grillz.
How did Zaks go about building such an impressive celebrity clientele and expanding his business?
Greg: When I started my business, I didn’t have any money–period. Which meant I couldn’t do any traditional ad campaigns. I made my way going out to various clubs in LA and connected myself with all the young up and comers. Everyone was growing together and looking to help each other, it was all very organic. Influencer marketing was key in the beginning stages. It’s given me notoriety and recognition in an industry that’s very dog-eat-dog. Using celebrities and influencers for shoutouts on social media in exchange for free jewelry and free grillz was everything.
For clients looking to order a custom grill, you are offering custom mold kits. What does the process of making a mold at home look like?
Greg: The process is very simple; we have created our own custom mold kits prepackaged with all the supplies necessary to do the teeth molds at home. We provide our customers with detailed instructions as well as an envelope with prepaid postage to send back to us. We have a high success rate and many people view the process as fun and easy. During Covid, this helped tremendously as many people were scared to meet in person. Being able to have mold kits delivered to customers helped eliminate a lot of the worry for people while still being able to create exactly what they wanted. We’d send the kits to the customer with instructions, they’d send it back with their design preferences and specifications, and a few weeks later, they’d have their own piece.
How do DIY molds for grills compare to having face to face consultations for custom grill pieces?
Greg: At Grillz, we have all the tools necessary for our customers to communicate exactly what they are looking for without the need for a face-to-face consultation. We have one of the largest online inventories of all private jewelry companies worldwide. We have everything from low end to high end merchandise in order to cater to our massive audience. Our merchandise includes solid gold and diamond earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. We have also recently expanded our collection to a wide variety of ready-made engagements rings. Overall, we have several ways of communications to ensure that all of our customers wants and needs are met.
When did Smith-Schuster’s interest in jewelry/style first begin? Is jewelry something he’s learned more about and recently become interested in, or has it been a passion project in the back of his mind for a while?
Greg: JuJu has always shown interest in fashion and jewelry. He stays up to date with the latest and greatest fashion trends. Thinking back on the first pieces I made for JuJu vs. what he’d be interested in now is a clear indicator of that. As long as I’ve known him, his sense of style continues to elevate as well as his taste in jewelry. By curating a more refined sense of style for himself, he is perpetuating our brand, as well as future partnerships.
What collaborations can we expect to see in the future from this partnership?
Greg: Currently we are creating a capsule collection with JuJu that will be exclusive to Grillz. We have many other future celebrity collaborations in the works with big names. We are constantly striving for greatness and looking to take our business next level.

Fueled by a common history with innovation and motor racing at its core, led by visionary families whose values of entrepreneurship, precision and performance propelled them to the forefront of their respective industries, TAG Heuer and Porsche join forces to unveil an extensive partnership that will set a new standard for brand integration.
The Swiss luxury watchmaker, TAG Heuer, and the German sportscar manufacturer, Porsche, have announced their new partnership: an authentic alliance between two brands whose common DNA in motorsports and racing forges a holistic and long-term collaboration–ranging from competition to product development. A new watch, the TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph, is unveiled as first celebration of the iconic brands.
TAG Heuer CEO Frédéric Arnault says that now is the time is right for his brand’s partnership with Porsche: “TAG Heuer and Porsche have common history and values, of course, but more importantly, we share an attitude. Like Porsche, we are disruptors at heart, always in pursuit of high performance. With this alliance, TAG Heuer and Porsche finally come together officially after decades of close encounters and will create unmatched experiences and products for customers and fans that are passionate about both our brands and what we stand for.”
“The strong friendship of our brand with TAG Heuer has existed for decades, and I am more than happy that we are now taking the next steps in the frame of a strategic partnership,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “We bring together what our customers love the most about both of us: authentic heritage, thrilling sports events, unique life experiences and the fulfilment of dreams. We both strive to create some unique, magic moments for our communities. We now look forward to doing it together.”
TAG Heuer and Porsche: Two histories–one passion
TAG Heuer and Porsche have a number of things in common, from their rich histories and reputations for innovation to cutting-edge technologies, powerful and independent mindsets, and a knack for excellence in design. And for over half a century, their stories have intersected in intricate, intriguing ways.
Of course, the argument can be made that certain similarities of heritage can be traced all the way back to when both companies were founded by self-taught entrepreneurs. Edouard Heuer and Ferdinand Porsche were visionaries and pioneers whose creations changed their chosen fields forever. Heuer was responsible for the first manufactured chronograph and Porsche invented an electric wheel hub motor. Both these accomplishments earned medals at World’s Fairs held in Paris 11 years apart. Heuer was honored in 1889 and Porsche presented the first Lohner-Porsche Electromobile with this innovation at the Expo in Paris in 1900.
A Beautiful Friendship Begins . . . and Flourishes
The true cornerstones of the new partnership, however, are descendants of the brands’ founding fathers. Ferdinand Porsche’s son, Ferdinand Anton Ernst, or “Ferry”, joined his father’s engineering office in 1931 at the age of 22. He later founded the car brand that bears the family name in 1948. Within a few years, the Porsche name would be associated with race track success all around the world–including a class win in the Carrera Panamericana race of 1954. In honor of its successful participation, Porsche calls its most powerful engine ‘Carrera’.
Edouard Heuer’s great-grandson Jack led his family’s company for decades. In 1963, he created the first Heuer Carrera chronograph, designed to let drivers tell the time at a glance in the heat of action.
This ground-breaking timepiece and Porsche’s most powerful Carrera engine united Porsche and Heuer – for the first time – in the spirit of the ‘Carrera’ (or ‘race’), which embodied ambition, speed and technical excellence.
Jack Heuer was also responsible for the Heuer Monaco, the first square-faced, water-resistant automatic chronograph watch. Its name evoked the Monaco Grand Prix as well as the Principality’s renowned Monte Carlo Rally, which Porsche won in three consecutive years, from 1968 to 1970, with its signature 911 model. Just as the Porsche 911 had done for automobiles, the Heuer Monaco–with its distinctive case, the blue metallic dial, the red seconds hand and the crown positioned on the left side of the case–broke with the familiar design codes of traditional watchmaking.
The Heuer Monaco’s innovations had come at a significant financial cost. As an alternative to an expensive advertising campaign, Jack Heuer further cemented his brand’s link to Porsche with a creative sponsorship arrangement with Fribourg, Switzerland-based racing driver and Porsche dealer Jo Siffert. In 2005, at the premiere of the film Jo Siffert: Live Fast – Die Young, Jack Heuer remembered the terms of their contract: “In exchange for CHF 25,000, he would put our logo on his car and suit. In addition, he could buy our watches at wholesale prices and resell them to his racing friends at a substantial profit. Which he did with great success because half of the F1 paddock was wearing Heuer watches by the end of the 1969 season!”
It was this connection that led Steve McQueen to wear the Heuer logo on his racing suit during the filming of Le Mans in 1970, in which he drove a Porsche 917. The enigmatic American actor said at the time, “I drive the same car as Jo Siffert, and I want to wear the same suit as him.”
There was another important, and more formal, link between Porsche and Heuer–or more precisely, TAG Heuer, the name assumed by the Swiss watch brand when it was sold to the TAG Group in the mid-1980s. Together, the brands developed and produced the TAG-Turbo engine that enabled the McLaren team to win three consecutive F1 world titles: with Niki Lauda in 1984, followed by Alain Prost in 1985 and 1986.
In 1999, the relationship grew even stronger–from the Porsche Carrera Cup and Supercup competitions, followed by the Endurance World Championship, and more was yet to come. TAG Heuer, as a founding partner of the Formula E championship, helped raise the profile of thrilling single seater races in electric cars. Porsche created its own Formula E team with TAG Heuer as title and timing partner in 2019, marking a starting point for an even more powerful and far-reaching collaboration. And in 2021, that “beautiful friendship” has become a holistic, official brand partnership, celebrated by a special-edition timepiece that proclaims proudly, “It was worth the wait!”.
New Sports Partnerships for 2021 and beyond
Along with the TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph, which is introduced below in stunning detail, 2021 will feature a rich portfolio of joint projects that reflect TAG Heuer’s and Porsche’s shared commitment to speed and precision sports.
Motorsports: continuing the legacy
The foundations of the long, strong link between TAG Heuer and Porsche are world-class motorsports, and it is fitting that in the years to come, these thrilling competitions will be at the very heart of the new partnership.
The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team made history in its debut season. It set a milestone at the opener in Diriyah (SA) in November 2019, when André Lotterer crossed the finish line in second place: that was the first time a rookie team finished on a podium in its first race since the maiden season in 2014/2015. In its second year, the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team will not only continue to attract new fans to a circuit that pits all-electric cars against each other, but also fight for the World Championship. Behind the wheel of Porsche’s latest all-electric racecar, the 99X Electric, will be drivers André Lotterer and his new teammate, Pascal Wehrlein.
Porsche has long distinguished itself in endurance events and together with TAG Heuer, its GT Team is well prepared for the coming FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). The milestone year will also include series partnerships in ten editions of the worldwide one-make cup series, Porsche Carrera Cup.
In addition to physical competitions, TAG Heuer also engages in virtual racing by supporting the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup. With such a rich, common heritage on the track, TAG Heuer is naturally stepping in as global partner in Porsche’s ‘classic’ events and rallies as well.
One team, on the green and on the court
Beyond the broad-based partnership in motorsports and esports, TAG Heuer and Porsche also share a passion for two other popular activities, golf and tennis. Golf has been a focal point of the TAG Heuer Connected watch developments in recent years, with the TAG Heuer Golf app offering a best-in-class experience to hundreds of thousands of players. Porsche for its part is running its own golf activities like the Porsche Golf Cup, and is sponsor of the Porsche European Open golf tournament since 2015, both of which TAG Heuer will join.
Porsche’s support of tennis includes its own tournament, the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, of which TAG Heuer will be the Official Timing, Watch and Chronograph partner moving forward and which features some of the most talented women in the game. This comes of TAG Heuer’s already prominent on-court presence and via partnerships with world class tennis players. Joining forces in these sports as well was the obvious next step for both companies.
For the competitor in all of us
TAG Heuer and Porsche know that their clients and fans are not simply observers. They are everyday thrill seekers who are eager to take on new challenges and make their own marks. They believe that beautifully-designed objects should not be locked in a safe or stored in a garage but should be used, put to the test, and enjoyed. For precisely these enthusiasts, TAG Heuer and Porsche are creating unforgettable moments through the different Porsche experience formats.
Celebrating a partnership:
Carrera: an icon of a name that has been associated with TAG Heuer and Porsche for generations – so it was a natural choice for the first creative product collaboration. A tribute to the heritage of two legendary brands, both on and off the racetrack, the new chronograph offers a first glimpse at what they can achieve together.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph is an exquisite example of coordination, cooperation and collaboration. Based on TAG Heuer’s Carrera Sport Chronograph design, with its distinctive tachymeter scale engraved on the bezel, it introduces a number of features inspired by Porsche’s design essence. A compelling union of two icons of performance, quality, and innovation, this chronograph is a seamless blend of the Porsche and TAG Heuer universes, reflecting the excellence of both names without diluting the essence of either.
Porsche’s engraved inscription is visible on the bezel and the unmistakable font is also used for the indexes. The Porsche colors of red, black, and grey – which also recall historic Heuer models – are incorporated throughout the watch, and on clear display through the transparent crystal case back is the oscillating mass, which has been redesigned in affectionate tribute to Porsche’s celebrated steering wheel. It is printed with “Porsche” and “TAG Heuer”. The dial’s asphalt effect, created especially for this watch, perfectly expresses a passion for the road, while Arabic numerals suggest the numbers on the dashboard of fine Porsche sportscars.
This ground-breaking timepiece is presented either on a soft strap in luxurious calf leather and innovative stitching that echoes the Porsche interior, or on an interlocking bracelet reflecting streamlined racing design. At the heart of this stunning timepiece is the in-house Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement with an impressive 80-hour power reserve. The chronograph mechanism’s vertical clutch and column wheel demonstrate the brands’ unflinching demand for absolute precision.
Finally, the TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph is a Special Edition watch and is delivered in bespoke packaging with colors and a style consistent with the remarkable watch inside. The black watch box features the logos of TAG Heuer and Porsche in white. Inside the box is a perfectly-sized black travel pouch with an unmistakably Porsche red interior.
The official partnership between TAG Heuer and Porsche may be on its starting line, but it has been built on a remarkable foundation: the shared heritage and the common interests of two of the world’s favorite and most dynamic luxury brands. It is a friendship reflecting the dreams and aspirations of visionary founding families. It is a true collaboration developed over decades on some of the world’s most challenging racetracks and on the wrists of drivers who were the very embodiment of Jack Heuer’s motto, “Time doesn’t stop. Why should we?”

Red Bull Racing Honda × TAG Heuer
CHARGING ON TO 2024 WITH TAG HEUER
After five successful seasons together, Red Bull Racing Honda and TAG Heuer are pleased to announce a partnership extension until 2024, with the legendary Swiss watch manufacturer continuing as the Team’s Official Timekeeper.
The conclusion of the new agreement comes on the eve of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship and sees TAG Heuer branding continue across the cars and suits of race-winning Red Bull Racing Honda drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. Both headliners as well as the Team will also be sporting TAG Heuer wristwatches as they prepare to mount a title charge.
The partnership extension means the Swiss luxury brand will continue adding to its prestigious Formula One heritage that stretches back more than 50 years. TAG Heuer’s passion for motorsport not only includes its long-standing partnership with Red Bull Racing but also its ties to iconic races such as the Monaco Grand Prix.
Red Bull Racing Honda Team Principal, Christian Horner, said: “We are enormously proud to continue our longstanding and successful partnership with TAG Heuer, one of the most iconic names in the history of Grand Prix racing. Over the decades TAG Heuer has been associated with some of the true legends of our sport and we are delighted that Red Bull Racing continues to be part of that important heritage. In motorsport, timing is everything, not just in terms of the fractions of a second that separate the great from the good, but also in terms of the split-second decisions that can spell the difference between victory and defeat. TAG Heuer’s “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” spirit embodies the resilience and commitment required to get that timing right and we look forward to creating more race-winning moments with them in the coming years.”
Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer added: “TAG Heuer has outstanding heritage in Formula One, stretching back to the golden age of Grand Prix racing, and we are proud to continue that story with today’s extension of our relationship with Red Bull Racing Honda until the end of the 2024 season. Together with the Team, our mission is to continue to strive for ultimate precision and performance through beautifully engineered concepts that contribute to the remarkable history and wonderful mystique of motorsport.”
Rolex is among the most renowned brands on the planet. It was established in London in 1905 but is now headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. What makes Rolex unique is its unwavering dedication to the niche craft of luxury watchmaking.
The brand only makes watches, but this has not prevented it from being a sign of wealth and elegance in contemporary culture. This may be attributed to the fact that so many famous personalities have been linked to Rolex watches across time.
It’s definitely an item that signifies prestige, not just a watch. Maybe this is the rationale for the long-lasting popularity of the company.
What Makes Rolex Special?
You might think Rolex watches are going out of style now, since their only real feature that can also be accomplished via your smartphone. That raises the question, ‘Why are Rolex watches so pricey? When you focus on the lengthy method of making only one Rolex watch, you could start thinking that they’re actually reasonably priced!
The components Rolex requires to create its watches are not used by anybody else in the industry. For most brands of the world, their steel timepieces use mostly 316L, a form of stainless steel, in their manufacturing process.
Rolex, on the other hand, chooses to use 904L steel for its watches. This form of steel is much more complicated to process than its 316L equivalent, and the production cost is also considerably higher.
Rolex’s expertise in luxury watches and time-tested knowledge makes it the first company in the world to be able to manufacture its products in this way, and the outcome is a stylish design that rises above its rivals. In addition, the organization has set up a range of testing laboratories to help establish strategies for streamlining and developing its products.
The watches are constructed using advanced equipment and then finished by human hands to give it an immaculate look. All these considerations contribute to grant Rolex watches a high end starting price as well.
How Much Will a Rolex Cost?
Rolex watches are designed to be luxurious products that will last for decades, and it is no wonder that this model has a high value. The affordable models start at about £5,000, but for antique timepieces and the new styles, you might have to surpass £15,000 to land the watch you like.
One of the advantages of owning a Rolex watch is that it can be used as a kind of savings. Many models are expected to hang on to their popularity, and some iconic pieces, such as the Datejust or the Daytona, are proven to increase in value. If you are trying to assess the worth of a particular Rolex watch, the first move is to locate its serial and model code.
Where Should You Buy a Rolex From?
If you’ve chosen to take the plunge to purchase your own Rolex watch, there are a range of choices to consider. If you can manage it, the ideal choice is to order directly from one of the manufacturer’s approved outlets at a full cost. Even so, you can still choose to buy a pre-owned Rolex at a cheaper price.
A highly desired brand, such as Rolex, will have many forgeries and fakes on the market as well, and a new buyer may find it difficult to access the marketplace. The easiest approach is to buy from a reliable professional buyer who has many consumer ratings for reputation. These sellers are experienced in the purchasing and sale of premium products and also have experts available to analyze the commodity so that reasonable value can be calculated.
A Rolex can mean a lot to the outside world. The picture of class, reputation, and riches is all that Rolex has to do. What is more significant, though, is the impact it has on you, the wearer.
It’s really one of the most special and personal things you can buy for yourself, and this timeless watch will never go out of style!
