It boggles the mind but actually works very well on the wrist.

That is the only VC I lust after.

I'm not massively interested in the watches' own history, or that of their previous owners, although I sometimes wonder what adventures the Rolex might have had before we met. I just like wearing something that's as old as I am (in the case of the Rolex).

Now, if I happened to buy a second hand Pepsi just because I liked it, I really wouldn't care less about its history and I'd want it in as good condition as possible so I can start adding my own history to it.

 

Can your wife call my wife and discuss how awesome it is to own a watch from your birth year?  If she wants to nudge her in a direction a Yellow Gold Nipple Dial Submariner from 1985 would be the bees knees.  Arguments for the purchase include: 1. My wifes birth year as well; 2. Yellow Gold will match her wedding band and engagement ring; 3. It should fit both our wrists!!!

My boss has this watch. It and the 1955 are the two VC's I lust after.

Also vying for wrist time is an older acquisition on a new look strap.





Previously look on shell strap.

Welcome welcome, and thanks!
