In this week’s episode of LIQUOR RUN, Christian and Rolly crack open a bottle of Pinot Grigio and discuss some of the newest additions to the watch shop this week.
The first piece in question is, at retail, a $21k watch – The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950, a pink gold almost squarish case with flared lugs and a cream dial. And while we could go on all day about how pretty the dial is and how well-designed the case is, it’s the movement that is perhaps worthy of the most attention. It’s hand finished and features a stunningly finished micro-rotor that contributes to the overall thinness of the watch.
Next, we have two vintage Rolexes. The first is a Day-Date reference 1803, made special by the fact that it features a Spanish day wheel. Along side that, we have a blue dial vintage Air King. The Air King is in such a weird position as a model because it is technically a sport model, by all accounts, yet is often worn as a dress model. It’s a weird sort of disconnect between intention and practice.
