The almost perfect diving watch for me...

When it comes to Pelagos or BB58, I will always choose the latter. In my opinion, the Pelagos tried too hard to be a modern Rolex Sub alternative, the bezel looks a bit too beefy with respect to the dial. Ignoring the LHD, the other 2 options of matt blac

Summer holiday is a bit dodgy here with storm and rain. But we’re used to it.

Nothing can beat family, a 5513 ghost bezel from 1966 and beautiful architecture to convince you that the sun always shines. What are you wearing this Monday?

IMHO A very underestimated watch in my collection

I didn’t intend in any way to compare or rate the two watches (which is completely impossible anyway). Very often, the simple things in life are those that move us most, and this is no different when it comes to watches. I am very fond of my simple 5513 o

What’s your first vintage Rolex and 'story'?
