Rolex: That's a better situation for sure.
Also happy to read that you have a trusted watchmaker who can help you. Rolex service centers can sometimes be a scary place for a vintage model as nice as this one.
Rolex: That's an unfortunate discovery.
Is the spot under the crystal on the chapter ring? Better found sooner rather than later but sorry it happened at all. Good luck with that beautiful example of a 5513!
Horological Meandering: Too funny....lol!
Poor AP gets picked on a lot about those. I'm not a serious customer for one but think the CODE watches are actually very nice. Maybe not all to my styling but their efforts show and quality is there. Thanks for the laugh!
Vacheron Constantin: Truly amazing!
The 1.2Hz resting mode is a perfect compliment to a perpetual calendar. Not to mention the modern beauty of the watch itself. Congrats!
