400 days clock

Bought this lovely 400 days clock from the border town in Mae sod. I really love the nice porcelain dial as well as the graceful movement of the rotating balls.

ཞơƖɛҳ 1601 & 6424

Vintage ཞơƖɛҳ has always been my core collection. Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to trade my CWC military chronograph for a Rolex 6424. The 6424 is a very uncommon reference dating to 1956 having a large 36mm. stainless steel case that fits a 20mm. band.

This is the largest of the modern manual winding ROLEX watches produced from the 50’s to 90’s. This watch sits slimly and broadly across the wrist with its shimmering stainless steel case. This white dial has aged nicely into a marble like dial. The manual winding ROLEX movement cal 1210 is very reliable and this watch can be worn daily for many decades..

Rolex 1601 Pink gold

After much efforts, I have finally managed to sell of my Omega constellation white gold top, Omega 120 Seamaster plus a hosts of other watches and table clock in order to finance this 1601 Pink gold watch from 1962. I am happy as I managed to keep my promise of selling some watches out first before getting in any new one.

ཞơƖɛҳ ℘ıŋƙ ɠơƖɖ ąŋɖ ʂɬɛɛƖ ɖąɬɛ ʝųʂɬ

ıɬ has been estimated that there is only one steel and 18k rose gold Datejust model 1601 for every 5,000 steel or steel and yellow gold models. I am not a great fan of the Datejust model but the challenge of getting a Rose gold and steel has excited me.

I am in the process of getting an original stainless steel and 14k rose gold case with the characteristic raised plastic crystal that gives the 1601 its unique profile. The watch has an Original 18k rose gold fluted bezel and screw down crown and ῳıɬɧ ʂıƙ۷ɛཞ Sigma dial with applied rose gold hour markers, gold baton hands and date display at 3’oclock. ı ɧąve promised myself not to get any new acquisition unless I am able to sell away some in order to keep the number of vintage watches down which make the hunt process a further challenge.

The watch has the automatic winding Rolex 1570 Caliber with 26 jewels, adjusted to temperature and in 5 positions. Movement is clean and running. This is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer.  Rolex Jubilee bracelet with steel and rose gold links and folding clasp. Waiting for its arrivals not Tuesday...
