Vintage Rolex at the Miami Beach Art Show

rpr_IMG_4691

I really loved the idea of going to the sun when my home place is covered with snow. So next stop was the famous Miami Watch Shows, besides the IWJG show on Monday & Tuesday, the Miami Beach Art & Antique Show started on Thursday last week. Many great friends from all over the world came over for this annual spectacle making it not so easy to find the rare vintage Rolex that came new to the market. Luckily I’ve exceptional buddy’s around me that made the trip for me more then worthwhile. Buddy Matt Bain and his lovely wife Erika arrange a cool party  at their amazing home including with bull riding, stunning food and great friends. Many thanks for your hospitality, that whole evening blow away my brain 😉

Again as usual, I met many old friends and made some new friends, all deeply interested in the miracles of vintage Rolex collecting. It was great to see that everybody was hunting for their grail Rolex, many extraordinary examples came freshly to the market and found their way into important collections. I can only recommend everybody to do the Miami watch Shows next year, till then amigos!

Rainbows where everywhere for sale. Personally I don’t like it, the added diamonds are to much imho!
