Black Limited Edition Rolex Watches

The Black Limited Edition is a series of vintage steel Rolex watches that have been turned into a matte black color though highly-specialized chemical applications. Apparently, Alejandro Alcocer, a watch fanatic and design guru followed the legend of a black watch supposedly released by Rolex in the late 1960s for the Royal British Army soldiers stations in South Africa. It was thought that only 500 were made, but Rolex never confirmed their distribution and they became the holy grail of watch collecting. As a result, Alcocer made his own. The watches are offered in an edition of 50 and are now available at Barneys.
And THAT boys and girls is today's history lesson.
