I wouldn’t essentially argue that any fashionable Rolex is ‘collectible,’ no matter that phrase means to you, pricey reader, however as a lot as any could be, I suppose this could possibly be it. Particularly if Rolex solely finally ends up making it for a yr or so (it’s to have a good time the one centesimal anniversary of Le Mans in spite of everything). Like, when the primary one (sadly) reveals up on the secondary market, what’s going to be the ask, 100k? Does it even matter? Extra broadly, it’s maybe probably the most overt historic reference we’ve seen from Rolex not too long ago, a model that we’re at all times informed: “doesn’t do heritage.” With this launch, paired with latest public sale outcomes (courtesy of Rolex itself), it’s clear Rolex is as involved with its historical past as anybody. And for others (like me, and possibly even you) which can be additionally involved with its historical past, possibly that’s probably the most important information of all.
