There was a early version of a automatic watch made durin.g the 20's that was referred as a rollie. I cannot recall the name of the watch, but it used a rolling movement to wind the watch. The watch used the movement of the watch in the case as a method to wind. I have references but they are currently in storeage. The watch rolled back and forth on small wheels as a winding method. They were not very successful. They proceeded the Harward watches. There was a...
I own several Rolexes but have never owned a Rollie.
What is a Rollie?

To buy a good or expensive watch takes a simple formula. Savings x Time x Patience = Watch. For years I wore a watch given to me by my mother(a Wyler) which I still own. I used the same formula to purchase my OMAS fountain pen.

Three things to consider when buying shoes, the length (size), width, and last(form). A cheap watch relays to others "I don't...
$4k for a good watch is the beginning price. Add diamonds and you talking at least $30k for a good watch. I know that there are diamond watches under 30K but they usually have low grade diamonds. Omega, Tag Huer, Jaeger Lecoultre, and IWC have models that cost approximately $4k. It is worth the cost on a better grade watch. I currently wear a Rolex Air King which runs curfrently new $4.5K but you can find one for $2K on the use watch market. There expense placed in a...
That Sinn is beautiful. Very elegant and simple. I prefer a watch that does not overpower the person with extensive addional junk. The watch I currently wear is a Rolex Date 2 tone with baton numbers. It does not distract from me the person, The other watch I wear is also a Rolex Air King with a baton dial(a gift from my wife). Both are not my idea of perfect but they do not detract from me, the person. I see that some close to you knew Helmet Sinn, founder of Sinn....
