Timzone.com or rolexforums.com.

nbTimes is a respected vintage Rolex seller. He sells from Hong Kong.  

If you do not want to deal with a forum, try hqmilton.com. Jacek knows his stuff.

Beware that many vintage Rolex watches have been severely molested. They may come with parts that are not correct for the time period, some of which, like date dials, will be a dead give away to anybody who knows anything about Rolex. 

Finally, always buy a seller, not a watch. 

Thanks for the advice. the condition or the 'accuracy' of the watch is less important to me than the year. I am trying to create a heirloom that my father would have bought for the occasion of my birth. Long story....

I always preferred Al Pacino's power lawyer in Devil's Advocate.

 

 

He's probably wearing that watch ...

I loved Charlize Theron in Devil's Advocate.  Then again, I love Charlize Theron.  Period.

 

"Iconic" pic of Charlize at a Lakers game wearing a DSSD:

 

 

Lovely pic of Charlize getting all passionate about the game - while some guy with a PP Aquanaut sits beside her, most likely thinking horrible thoughts.

That's such great coverage.  When it comes time to replace my Patek straps I will consider this since Patek straps will cost you a cool $450 to $500 or so anyway, off the frigging rack, and if you want anything more special than the standard brown or black you often have to wait MONTHS.

 

Burgundy, gabardine, navy with light blue stitching - why can't that be too common?

Hahaha. Know exactly where this is. Been in there a few times to see the hedgies.

 

 

Right next to Watches Of Switzerland. Dangerous work address!

Rolex Double Red Sea Dweller Mark IV ref 1665 baby!  Ugh, so tempting.

 

Personally (2cent alert), I'd prefer a date bubble. I can't--never could--handle the "flat" date window on SD but this is still a beautiful pic

As overly general as that may be, I cannot completely disagree. Classic Ariel article.

Also, I went to a local watch shop today, which is a Rolex AD. Finally saw a black dialed Daytona. I have to say... I am pretty darn smitten. Just looked phenomenal on my wrist. I have never really understood the allure, but what an incredibly solid feeling watch. It just handles so nice as well.

Although I have yet to own a Panerai, I cannot - much like Cylon's post a few pages back - deny the irrefutable logic of this post.

The usual fluff-piece tripe from the most prolific shill in the industry...
