Rolex: An update..

RSC called two days ago. I was told the reason for recommending an overhaul was based on the system showing the watch was purchased in 2013. I said I was puzzled and worried. " I bought the watch in an AD and now you told me the watch was already sold in 2013. This can happen to other Rolex watches

Jaeger-LeCoultre: A rather rare JLC nowadays. Great hunt and congratulations!

I wish JLC resume the making of watches of this category.

Rolex: They are both nice but my wrist cannot carry them.

When it comes to the dial, I prefer the Sky Dweller. Mind you, the white of Explorer suits its original design as a tool watch in the wild.

Rolex: Zenith is the only manufacturer I have encountered working on the contrary to the 'industry standard'.

They offer free inspection while-u-wait. First instance, my Zenith GMT did not need an overhaul and I was told to bring that in three years later. Second instance, the in-house watch maker cleaned an oil mark on a balance cock. That was a Zenith Chronomaster GT flyback. No charge for doing that.

Rolex: I recall speaking with someone at JLC years ago. JLC offered IWC a helping hand to give them the alarm movement.

That was the time IWC was struggling and launched the GST series. By offering you to replace the IWC movement with a new one in exactly the same specification, it could mean by doing so, the cost would be lower than getting someone to carry out an overhaul. It would be more efficient, too. Many year
