Vintage Rolex & Patek Philippe @ My Parma Report – March 2012.
Only 1 day Parma for me this time. It looked kind of empty at the Fiera Mercato in Parma. Definitly not all dealers made it to the fair this time due to some new aggressive italian politics trying to control italians cash-flow radically. Anyway, many great italian friends made it and for me only for the great prosciutto is worth going as you can wake me up at night. The weather was great, the offered display is impressing, even when some guys didn’t displayed, they where there, like Marlon just to have fun, and as always, the best vintage Rolex is around you, on the wrist of dedicated collectors coming to Parma. Many thanks for all the great conversations, the incredible dinner and all your great Rolex, lots of passion in Parma…
