Vintage Watch Perlon Strap

Perlon Straps and Vintage Watches: A Winning Combination

Fine quality vintage timepieces can run forever and are always in fashion. If you have a watch that was passed down from a relative or managed to score a vintage watch from an estate sale, you’ll want to show it off. Unfortunately, the straps on vintage watches often wear out before their cases and time-keeping mechanisms, which can detract from the appearance of a vintage watch and even put you […]

Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600

Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600

The Rolex Sea-Dweller is for me special as it is the only reference with the date without the cyclopse. It keeps the sapphire clean and still the advantage to have the date. This piece is a 2008 series, one of the latest produced and I got it in feb 2013 like new full set. I like the 5 digits references with these thin lugs like the vintage ones. For me the […]

I’ve always been interested in aviation watches, but never thought that I could get my hands on one with such an attractive price with an in-house Orient automatic movement and a gorgeous looking dial colour which gives all sorts of shades of blue, doesn’t get any better […]

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980

The Nautilus 5980 had been a “grail” in my mind for some time and now I had the opportunity to own it. By trading in almost my whole collection I was able to make this mine.  It’s hard to describe in words the feeling of owning such a perfect […]

Rolex Submariner

Rolex Submariner

I bought this Rolex Submariner from a former colleague of mine. We worked together for about a year and early on just after I met him, he told me he had a two tone Submariner but I noticed he hardly wore it. I told him I’ve always liked that watch and since I virtually never saw him wearing it, I said I’d be interested in buying it if he ever wanted […]

Omega Speedmaster on a Nato Strap

Omega Speedmaster on a Nato Strap

I’m collecting watches for more than ten years now. A lot of Speedies came into my collection but all of them are the Moonwatch and different editions of it. When I saw this Omega Speedmaster 57 I felt in love with the blue/grey dial that came on it. Also, I think that this caliber 9300 is an iconic movement and always will be the first inhouse for Omega. This is both […]
