That AP sure is awesome. Love the tone of rose gold they do.

This is me today - not quite so luxe but a favourite of mine...

Anyway, this is a thread on watches, not money, so here is my week in watches smile.gif

Stupid question: what's this, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms?

Also, feel free to spam us with pics on Siffert! One of my vintage grails would be Nina Rindt (obvious Finnish motorsport link here), but prices are somewhere between ridiculous and nuts.

Looking good! Hard for me to tell the color of that dial from my phone this slow morning - is that blue or black?

Thanks, Mimo and Frilly. The 'old timer' is a c 1974 Rolex Date with a black dial and gold batons. One of the favourites in my rotation, but I have to look after him because he's an old man, like me.

I'm way long carriage clocks but there's a temptress or two in that book.

Attended the NY Horological Society's introductory Watchmaking 101 class last night, with three other lucky participants, including @tigerpac. We spent two hours in one-on-one instruction with certified graduate watchmakers from Rolex's RSC, learning about, disassembling and reassembling ETA 6497 movements.

I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in watches. It was a blast, and gives me even more appreciation for the talent behind my watches.

Great to also meet a fellow enthusiast, tigerpac!

Looks great! And what is this about "old men needing to be looked after!" Heh heh.

Attending my three year old's "preschool recognition ceremonies" later this morning. Wearing the piece she will likely inherit - "if all goes according to The Plan." Ahaha!

Boring.  And I hope you have another child. :stirpot:

Hahahaha! That's not in line with The Plan... But accidents happen... OMG!

A minute repeater is cheaper!

That's awesome - when you come around to presenting the watch you can tell her about all the important life events that it has witnessed. I hope she's grateful!

Sweet resolution.



I sent them a detailed report establishing previous ownership and proving that a change of ownership was not taking place. A day later, my baby is home.

Valuable lessons learned here. Mainly; if at all possible, do not put a Rolex in a cardboard box.
