Our Rolex Passion Meeting 2014 was just brilliant, Thank YOU Guys!!

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 […]

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 […]
