Back home, with a hangover, rethinking how fabulous Passion Meeting 2014 was, I come to the conclusion that this one might have been the most relaxed GTG so far! Everybody was totally into enjoying the watches and the friends that came in from everywhere to catch up with each other since the last time they met. Thank YOU […]
A lot has already been written about the impact of the luminous used in wristwatches. In specific the turn from using radium to tritium has been discussed in length on vintage Rolex Forums. Today I don’t want to debate the dangers of early radium nor the legal impact radiation had for the swiss watch companies. I merely […]
Live pictures of new DSSD D-Blue from Percy… From my earlier reports, you can read over here and here, it seems I was close. Rolex just launched their new DeepSea with a new dial design, from blue to black and regular black ceramic bezel insert. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised by the strange color combination, specially the bright […]
As I reported you “several times in last decade, the fakers are getting better “and we all have to be very careful in what we buy for our collection. In my “Buyers Guide I recently posted“ you can read about the little details that are so important for the originality of a true vintage Rolex. […]
The myth around the iconic Rolex Daytona has spread around the world recent years. Always has the Daytona model been attached to motor racing, at first Rolex called their new Cosmograph the “Le Mans” and little later to “Daytona” when Rolex started to sponsor the well known speedway. Today I like to introduce you one of […]
Today I like to introduce my dear RPR followers, the “Pan Am Daytona”. Not often we come across a total new discovery in the vintage Rolex world. I’ve been traveling around the world for my vintage Rolex passion quest many years now and probably most of the rarest Rolex i’ve inspected up close but I couldn’t […]
To complete my earlier RPR post: A brief introduction into the world of vintage Rolex and Patek Philippe collecting I like to add my quick guidance today to determine original vintage Rolex – or any kind of vintage watch brand in general. I noticed yet again that even seasoned collectors still ask me on a regular […]
As usual when I come back from the Geneva Watch Auctions, I’m speechless, so it was this time also! The star lots at Christie’s, the brilliant patinated Rolex cloisonné and the diamond 6270 Daytona, the Patek the Graves minute repeater where all sold around 1 million each. The offered Rolex Qaboos collection also hit way […]
UPDATE III: From my earlier reports, you can read over here and here, it seems I was close. Rolex just launched their new DeepSea with a new dial design, from blue to black and regular black ceramic bezel insert. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised by the strange color combination, specially the bright green isn’t matching at all with the elegant […]
After the mind-blowing and in my opinion too extreme results at Christie’s latest Daytona sale in Geneva, we will see yet again at upcoming Christie’s May 2014 watch sale, vintage Rolex be the main player in their offered lots. A very divers selection of all different sport references, up to Killy’s, Padelone, Stelline and a […]
I just got back from yet another memorable vintage Rolex Meeting in London this time. Dear friends Mike, Jed and Paul organized a “Issued Rolex GTG” where the focus of this incredible meeting was on Comex, Military, Oman, Marine National, FAP etc. Vintage Rolex, Tudor, Panerai and some other brands that where ‘issued’ for a […]
