Watchfinder & Co. Explains Why the Omega Seamaster Trumps the Rolex Submariner

Watchfinder & Co. has just released a new video pitting two of the most time-tested (and marketed) Swiss dive watches against each other — the OMEGA Seamaster and the Rolex Submariner. Using the 116610LV Sub aka Hulk and the ref. Seamaster as the talking points, Watchfinder & Co. delivers another video that is sure to appease anyone from those that are looking for their first luxury watch, to those that already have their collection dialed in.   The video explains that while on paper, the OMEGA Seamaster bests the Submariner in the categories: craftsmanship, history, movement, details, price, availability, to name a few, Rolex is king in something that matters most: branding.

Tesla Cuts Prices; Model S and X Long Range

Tesla is dropping the base models (again), except this time, the prices aren't increasing as they did in January. Consistent with Tesla's frequently adjusted pricing and product availability, the latest changes that quietly appeared on the Tesla website this week dropped two cheaper models of the Model S and Model X. The Standard Range cars are gone, and the Long Range cars—now the base trim—are each down $8010. That means that, for just a couple grand more than the base models that were still being made last week, the Model S is finally at eye level with gasoline-powered luxury cars, at least in estimated EPA range. The 370-mile Model S (up from the Standard Range's 285) costs $81,190. The 325-mile Model X (up from...
