Pretty crazy history with this watch before finally getting it in hand. It all started a little over a year ago when I was offered it from the original owner, but the price kept going up until the guy was no longer responding and then he finally said he was not selling the watch. Then at the @christieswatches preview in Geneva I saw a watch there that looked similar to the one I had been trying to buy a year earlier. After looking at it closer and seeing all the black paint still present on the caseback with only a small bit missing here and there on the coronet I knew it was the same one. So happy to have brought this one home #rolex#vintagerolex#seadweller#mk1#1665#unpolished#genevaauctions
#GübelinAcademy keeping up with the market! The extraordinary #Apollo and #Artemis diamonds, sold together last night at @sothebys Geneva for $57.4M, making a new world record for a pair of earrings at auction.
