Default Hey Rolex and Tudor lovers out there, let's see them!

I like all models and makes of about any watch brand out there. Heck, I think I like 'em all. And about vintage pieces...that could be another thread!. But I'm partial to Rolex and Tudor watches, they are really sweet watches for me. Some tastes > ....
And I'm pondering about getting myself a Tudor Black Bay, a really cool looking and great watch. In Europe you can find them in every Rolex AD. They are soon to be available in the USA. Really like the snowflake hands,

[img]
They come with a bracelet, a great vintage looking leather strap and a fantastic looking, specially made NATO fabric strap,[img]

[img]

Also would love to have in my collection a great and super cool Pelagos. This one have a heart in the form of a ETA 2824.
Really, you can't have it all....,
[img]

And the automatic helium escape valve,



[img]

But to the post. I have a 2003 gold and ss GMT Master II,


and a Deep Sea Sea Dweller, which I'm wearing right now. This is a huge and heavy watch, with a BIG presence, I absolutely love it. Not for everyones taste I guess,

Even Charlize wears it. Can't be that big,

If you own any, let's see them

Thanks, I've always liked Tudors and really love what they're doing with the new designs. The best one, though, is the snowflake blue sub, was lucky to find that one, it is all original, purchased from the original owner, got the correct bracelet, the box, the original warranty paper and the original sales receipt. Just super cool.


Cheers,


-Marc

I only have the one Tudor. It's from 1968 and has the original rivetted bracelet. I don't know what it is, but there's just something that makes these watches stand out from the crowd. The crown action is still the best I've ever encountered. It's interesting to see how Tudor have gone back to their original design cues in their new watches.

I don't (yet) have one of these, but the Tudor timepieces show a certain simple elegance that is sometimes lost on other watches. I saw this particular Tudor up for auction at the beginning of last year and fell in love with the design (Prince-Oysterdate 7966 c.1959).


I've seen others again recently and they still inspire the same feeling. I'm usually one to sit on my hands when it comes to watch cravings but it seems like this is one i'll have to invest in one day when the time is right (pic borrowed from another site):

What a true beauty, Sirles. A really nice vintage Tudor.


I was 4 when yours went out of the factory. And of course, looks a lot better than me

That's beautiful! It's my age and looks a hell of a lot better than me! :-[ :-[

Default Re: Hey Rolex and Tudor lovers out there, let's see them!

I was working in a jeweller's shop when a guy wanted to trade his beaten up Tudor on a new watch. I got it for like $50. I spent some $ on it (parts are always expensive) and overhauled it etc.
It was nice to see it back on the road looking good and I made some $$ on it

I'm overhauling a customer's Rolex at the moment. I was told the 4th and 5th wheels would be worn as they weren't hardened properly from factory....sure enough they're worn. Hopefully they'll polish up ok as generic ones from Cousins are $100 each and Rolex ones (look just the same) are $4-500 each

The bought it 15 years ago and its not been serviced since so its doing ok.

Very nice, Henry - classic simplicity. Here's a close-up of the unusual rivetted bracelet I was talking about in my previous post.

Thanks, Sir Les. The rivetted bracelet is so nostalgic. Pretty hard to find one is a nice condition.

Here's is another vintage Tudor. I traded it with a friend for a Seiko 6139.
I really like this one because it reminded me of those older Grand Seikos.

I am still having this Tudor mid-size.

That's a handsome watch. It has everything you need, and nothing you don't.

Best wishes,

Here's my vintage 1953 Rolex Explorer. (please excuse the poor quality picture, I'm still working on my watch photography skills )

This the same model (6298) that Sir Edmund Hillary allegedly took to the Everest summit (although he actually wore another sponsors watch at the summit) which started the Rolex line "Explorer" hence this one doesn't have explorer on it's dial.

Thanks very much for the comments. Yes that's correct, unfortunately for us Rolex owners Hillary wore the Smiths at the summit, whereas Tenzing Norgay wore his Rolex (or at least so I've read)

EDIT: out of curiosity I just searched for Smiths Deluxe watches and they can be picked up for only a couple of hundred $$. I might have to add one to my collection.

I've had mine since the early '80s. Present from my folks.

The dial and the bezel were gifts at a later date.

Woww! Some gift. Nice watch, love the president bracelet.


I really like gold Rolexes, particularly Day-Dates.

Thanks. The thing with the presidential bracelet is that it stretches... so to speak. It's loosened up over the years.

But I still need another link. I've thickened up over the years.

Yes, those bracelets stretch over the years. There's this guy in Hong Kong, Michael Young (michael_ck_young@hotmail.com tel. 852-3188-0199) that is well known among Rolex collectors and owners. He is famous for fixing those bracelets wonderfully. If you want to fix yours, he's the guy. He can help you with the links too. He charges $120 US dollars for fixing a SS bracelet. More if its gold.
