The Maastricht Meeting 2012 – Vintage Rolex Collectors Passion Get To Gether

For the 5th time this year my good friend Bernhard and me organized The Maastricht Meeting. We where blessed to have so many great friends traveling from all over the world ( US – Tokio – Australia – Europa ) to join us. The weather was absolute stunning, the atmosphere very relaxed, great food & drinks and interesting talks after not seeing each other for some time. The passion behind the watches was this year the center of our GTG, the strong motivation each one has to build up a stunning collection impressed me! Great friends came together, some new, some old, all in love with the patina vintage Rolex has. MANY THANKS to you all for the time and effort you took by joining us! Big respect I’ve for YOU all! Here are some first impressions I selected like to share of our latest Rolex meeting, later today / tomorrow I’ll show you more ;-)…
