Love it when this happens.

Ever since the new BB 925 silver was introduced I knew I needed to add one to my Tudor Box. So the AD’s that I have spent a ton of money with have given me the slight BS shuffle regarding when I would get mine. Although I really wasn’t in a rush and knew

My Artisans de Geneve piece

I couldn’t live with the word oyster on a pump button Daytona. I’m afraid the second a watch designer or maker did that for me it would be game over. I’m not a green dial fan either. So never being a fan of watches which have been made so that they can’t

Another Rolex Cosmograph, this time 6265 from 1972.

Seen a few months ago. Along with a nice 6239. Which one do you prefer, the 6239 or the 6265? Personally, I'd vote for the 6239, here. You? Best, Nicolas

My favourite Rolex of all time.

Did a cleaning and biannual winding ritual when I took these photos. This is my 6262 PN And the only photo I could find on my phone of my 6239 PN

My favourite Rolex of all time.

And another reason why I don't really like to post them anywhere. People are on both sides of the fence when it comes to vintage Daytonas, me included. I was into them many years ago and luckily had a chance to see literally hundreds of them pass through

Rolex 6239: The Chronograph which should have been called " Le Mans " and not Daytona?

The evidence? An advertising from 1964, found on the net ( credit unknown ). " It is called Le Mans ". I could take some pictures of an early 6239, dating from early 1963, with a serial number which is 923 xxx. The same that on the advertising, bracelet a

Need your take on ...

I also suspect that this watch is not legitimate. I am not aware of that combination of lettering in the 6239’s and at a cursory glance, the case diameter appears identical to the companion 116520 in the photo, ie it does not appear to be 36.5mm. As far a

Rolex Daytona 16520 Black and White.

Some weeks ago, I posted pictures of the Rolex Daytona 6239 in black, and in white. And I had hard time deciding which one would be my favorite. Hypothetically, as I own none of them. With the 16520, it is different, since I opted many years ago for the w

Spotted in Paris: A pair of Rolex Daytona 6239, Black and Silver dials.

I said it many times, I am not a huge fan of vintage Daytona, but I must admit that when you fall on a nice one, it may change your perception. Here, I didn't fall on one, but two very nice Daytona 6239. And once again, I wondered which one I would prefer
