Best news off my trip was, as usual, besides the amazing Rolex, our newly set up collaboration between the Rolex Legend Pucci Papaleo & Myself, RPR and RPM ;) So Pucci and I finally decided to bring out even more important Rolex Histroy Books available in the near future for all the Rolex Loveres Worldwide !! Soon we’ll announce the Ultimate Rolex Day Date Pucci Book, then work on new titles like Prototype Dials & all Chronographs Rolex made, logically the Submariner, Explorer and GMT books to complete our work final goal by having the Ultimate Rolex Bible with all models.

You can imagine this Rolex Encyclopedia will become even much bigger and lot’s of more impressive then the already mind blowing piece of Art Pucci created with his Ultimate Rolex Daytona Book! Both our life’s of pure vintage Rolex Passion and many great friends of us will be highlighted!! We already started working on the Iphone & Ipad App, the Ultimate Daytona App. Personally I find it VERY important that all thje great information and detailed knowledge will become available to every one out there.

Therefor we will bring out the Mini Pucci Rolex Daytona Book together with your App, so the Daytona Stories continues with those grails we find in the future. Many thanks for all the support of you great collectors to back us up with your personal stories, your collections, your wisdom and sharp eye for detail. You except from Pucci & me to make this perfect, so it will be perfect! It will keep us busy for at least the next 5 years ;-)

After some great friends contacted me, I wanted to add some more information about the Importance of Proto Types, although I’m traveling again -))

MANY GREAT friends, italian Rolex lovers, have played a key role in the research and final Pucci book publication! Bravo to ALL of YOU! Without all your Passion, it would not be possible! MILLE Grazie you great Rolex Italia Community!

In particulair I like to add that my dear friend <b>Roberto Jatucka</b> has taken me into confidence from the beginning when insiders like him started researching and archiving the 3 x marvelous important Singer design sketch Dial Catalogue of 1967-1968-1969. Just the time that Rolex started getting used in adding matte white printed dials instead of (too expensive now as production went up fast due to American Market) gilt gold earlier glossy ones. These brillant design proposals, sketched by hand, made by Singer Art Craftsman Designers and NO computers involved!

Dials as ARTWORKS……

rpr_IMG_9692

So out of a Swiss Watch Evolution of Dial Designs going back 1000 years, Singer proposed their fixed clients and mayor players back then already in the market: Rolex, Tudor, Omega, Universal etc brands. All best watch brands where using their designs to be ‘fashionable, hot and up to date’. Thus their Proto Type’s that never made it to the public ( because back then Rolex pushed Singer to redesign the Daytona dial as the high consumption US muscle cars got out of fashion, a new bright decennium was starting to make history)

From Hand Drawn Singer Concept to Final Legendary Rolex Daytona Series..

rpr_IMG_9697

Nowadays all Rolex Lovers in the World would be VERY interested to own one of these stunning design results. The beauty of the best experienced Artist made these Proro Type dials legendary, knowledge, style and machinal new opperunities in making for instance markers even more interesting, new double or triple prints, new dial finishing options etc. I know realize after owning some more, It’s like touching Gods Hand, hihi! ;-) Rolex is aware and will move fast forward, reboot to blue and give us green for Vintage Rolex! :P

MANY Thanks to ALL my DEAR ITALIAN Friends!!

Grazie Mille,

Philipp

Strange part of the trip was at Italia customs back home….They taught I was carrying explosives?!?! Off course I was in terms of vintage Rolex bombs but not in form of explosives… So after 45 minutes, doing 10 tests, checked by 4 machines, we found out it was my bag. The bag I got from my Dutch friend Bernhard, made from old second WW canvas…having explosive powder still in it. I won’t use it again, thats for sure! ;-)
