The GMT has landed

Well guys you know i posted some WTB for a perfect 1675..... and i am almost there!!!! Fedex was nice to me this week. And it send me a beautiful GMT 1675 from '67.... not in it's final stage... but the route is the goal, if you know what i mean. When i posed my WTB i had so many nice mails... not only from sellers... but even more from great people trying to help. What a great feeling is that... community in it's best shape. Helping each other from sharing the same kind of passion. Not from gaining... but sharing! One of the nicest things!!!!!! Thanks to all. And here it is.... 

Perfect case to me... i love those lugs!!!! 
The dial will be replaced for a nice MK1 matte dial. The hands are surposed to be original to this transitional era. 
And it came with papers and chrono-certificate.... both punched. So i hope to the watch will be in 'my' dream-state before X-Mas... as she was my X-mas gift. 
And the greatest gift in that.... the people we meet on that way. And a very special lady knows what i mean!!!!! 
A good friend borrowed his black inlay for a couple of day's.... so know i need a black fat font inlay.... maybe even faded.... so if you have one... make my day.

Cool website!

Well we are all collectors and crazy about vintage.... and i guess most of us also love  vintage cars. Just found this website... and i love it. ANd i love that yellow Ferrari. The dream-car of my youth!

and who does not remember this one....

Comex 1665 610 Dial

The Comex 1665 is one of the coolest watches. Well i guess when you have been reading my blog you know how much i love Comex ;-). Here is another great watch. With an 610 dial. Which is official Rolex Comex replacement for the 1665. One of the rarest dial ever made. Also this watch has a very special caseback. Only made in a small batch. A real beauty and rare bird.

Double trouble

Today a friend was over... and it was a nice set-up ;-)
More to follow...

Cool strap

Today i am wearing a nice combination.... waiting for some cool ones...
I love the vintage SWISS Tropic strap. In combination with the faded inlay and MK1 Maxi... yummie!

1976 kind of style

Well a great guy send me a nice old National Geographic magazine from '76 with an 1680 (REDSUB) ad in it.... 

And as we all love those vintage watches... and look at them now.. it nice to see them next to the other icons/products and lifestyle of that era.. and relate it to that.... gives just another 'view' on the watches don't you think... in relation to their era. And in relation how still 'fresh' they look today. 
Rolex is a great design.... timeless beauty. Can't say that about most of the things.
From the old box...  when a car still had character, Spain was still Spain,.. and rich people still had real privileges ;-) 

I was a bit young then. I was having a party in the 80th. With wrong cloth, wrong drinks,... wrong places...... and wrong glasses LOOL!. But a lot of fun.
