Time is all it takes haha

We bought two of those bi-color Rolex one for me one for my wife

Mine has been serviced only once, about 2 years ago whilst I’ve been skiing mountain biking flying everything etc with it. And I still like to wear it

My wife’s one unfortunately got stolen two years back. But we know the culprit and she is still seen wearing my wife’s watch. It’s now proudly on the wrist of my daughter who borrowed it once and never returned it haha

So it stayed in the family

And as my daughter said: dad what better excuse do you need to buy new Rolex for mom

How dear to your heart this one must be! [nt]

It is dear

It is very dear to my heart.

It was our first, and at that time hugely expensive (for us at that time) acquisition.

As matter of fact all our watches were bought for some special occasion and that’s why we never sold one

And as time goes by we get older thus more special occasions thus more watches haha

But it’s great to see our children have picked up on it as well
Our daughter now has the (illegally obtained) Rolex datejust, a JLC Reverso Day and Night and a CARTIER Tank (the original one)

Son now has an Omega Speedmaster Progessional Moonwatch, an IWC Pilot Mark XVIII Le Petit Prince, IWC Portuguese and since recent Rolex Explorer

They both got the virus which is great

Steel and gold

Datejust is classic.

Indeed a classic thanks

I know what you mean...

This watch is 18 years old. Received from my wife as a gift when I graduated business school. My first luxury watch. Will never be up for sale. The 36mm  Datejust is as classic as they come, IMO.


P.S. I have thoroughly cleaned the watch since this photo was taken!
