Best quality is very hard to find thus sells for top prices even when the market is recovering. Instantly when I saw the stunning stainless steel 8171 Padelone, I fell deeply in love with it!!

What a amazing unpolished condition it has and at first i thought it went to a very nice collector but as I was standing outside for a smoke to calm down my nerves as the Piccard came up for auction, another Rolex collector was standing next to me, he looked very happy and satisfied and when i grapped all my courage, i asked him to give me his signature…

So legendary and hardcore Rolex collector Mr. Jean Claude Killy signed my Christies catalogue on the lot of ‘his’ newcomer as he told me…

It was imho the ‘best’ vintage Rolex to buy this Geneva auctions…

9BIG respect as he told me he’s since almost 40 years at the board of directors at Rolex Geneva S.A. making him the oldest member ¬†at the top of the Rolex company since Mr. Patrick Heiniger step out the company recently…

I had a amazing long weekend with lots of great (new)friends!!
Best to you all, many thanks!
