Check them out in the vintage watch shop before they go!
Christian reviews three of the new watches hitting the watch shop, including an immaculate Rolex Day-Date, a dress watch from Bucherer and more!!
Rolex Day Date Ref. 1803
Introduced in 1956, it was the first watch to feature the day of the week on full text. With a power start like that, it’s really only fitting that the watch would soon become a global icon. From the wrist of LBJ to Tony Soprano, the Day Date became a symbol synonymous with success, power. Although children of the 80’s definitely remember these watches as awful accessories to the finely tailored and coked up, I find them extremely versatile. From presidential bracelet to black cordovan or a tan suede, it looks not only beautiful but incredibly different. You can wear them however you like, never fettered to the ghost of Glengarry Glen Ross.
It’s a classically designed non-luminous, steel dress watch. This Bucherer is just about everything anyone could ask for in an ultra-refined dress piece. From its manually wound, super precise movement to its thin case, this piece is an obvious collectible.
Tudor Prince Oysterdate
Let’s dive in: it’s a Prince Oysterdate, a beautifully refined expression of the famous Rolex waterproof steel design. A little closer, it features a smooth steel bezel, a hugely desirable detail because of the slick vibe it gives the entire aesthetic. Take a second to admire the incredibly sharpness of the case and bezel, too. We’ve got to recognize this for the tremendous value it brings to the market for a fraction of the price Rolex does. It’s a pure example of a classically simple vintage watch that was built to last lifetimes and to a vintage geek, that means the world.
Rolex Datejust Ref. 1603
See those abnormally fat hour indices and hands? Yes, they have a name, “Wide Boy,” and they make for an extremely are and desirable Rolex. Looking beyond its big bones, this vintage Datejust bares the reference 1603 and it’s marked by its old world steel engine turned bezel and crispy Oyster case. Look as close as you’d like, this is a clean, honest example of a Rolex any collector would be lucky to own.
Oris Ref. 7484
It’s sleek, detailed, automatic and modern. This Oris reference 7484 is just about anything and everything a vintage lover could dream of in a production model. From its amazing guilloche dial to its gold tone case, it brings us back to the classic style of the mid 20’s century. This is the kind of watch geeks go nuts for and we couldn’t be more proud but to be offering it for you!!
