I love that dial!

The way forward

Well after a hell of a trip/detour... i received a package today. Way late... but that is a different story. Let's say it like this. There was someone really surprised at a different place in Europe ;-))) thanks to Fedex LOOL!

But here it is. And what makes it so important to me? Not only that it is a coool watch. With a killer dial and real fat indexes. Maxi style, as it comes from the same time as the 5513 Maxi dials. Not only it comes with papers, original receipt from the shop of Geneva airport and service papers. No it came from the original owner.

The last weeks i had strong discussions and thoughts about the vintage Rolex world,... and the direction it will take for me. With more and more technical development, micro welding, re-lacquering, put together, toasted, re-lume...
And what i feel is, that provenance and first owner watches, fresh to our world are the way forward to me. Trying to find these packages. Not only because of the quality and beauty! The fact that the watch is pure... as it comes and honest. Is it new knowledge? No of course not. As great friends and kind of hero's for me in this world do this for a long time now. Finding first owner watches. But i think it will get more and more important. And i think it is time to have good discussions on 'restoration' of watches. What do we think as OK and what NOT. Where do we draw a line.... and how does it reflect on price? Happy to hear your thoughts.....

Back on the wrist

This beautiful 5513 unpolished gilt sub... just went dead one morning. ANd now after great care by Philipp's watchmaker... it is back and running!
Running nice. The spring was broken. But most important... it is back on my wrist!!!
