1317 Rolex GMT Steel and Gold Reference 16750
The GMT-Master is the ultimate jet-set watch when air travel was actually still somewhat glamorous. The reference 16750 was introduced in 1980 to replace the classic reference 1675. The 16750 was very similar to its predecessor but featured the new automatic caliber 3075 movement with the new quick-set date function, which allows for a quick turn around when zipping between two different time-zones.
1085 Zenith Chronograph
The Zenith Chronograph is stunning with the sunburst silvered dial which has gained a light champagne hue from gently aging over the decades. The classic red telemeter scale and the blue tachymeter scale give the dial a beautiful touch of colors.
1144 Omega Steel Center Seconds
This Omega is the ultimate classic from the 1940s with a very classic styling with a “less is more” aesthetics. The clean Arabic numerals with leaf hands stand out against the serene silver dial. The center seconds hand adds another focal point.
1168 Wakmann Triple Date Chronograph
The popularity of Wakmann has gained traction especially in the last several years. Especially with the Triple Date Chronograph brings great value. The case is a nice size at 37mm; the combination of the pushers and calendar buttons extending width-wise and the long lugs certainly gives this watch a much larger appearance without compromising comfort on the wrist. The chronograph hand in red adds a nice pop of color, and we love the triple calendar layout with the crescent calendar hand. The movement is a solid powerhouse, the Valjoux 723.
1803 Rolex Day-Date
The Rolex Day-Date is the epitome of success and has been on the wrists of world leaders. Since 1956, this model remains supreme among their dressy luxury offerings. This example showcases the classic combination of 18k-yellow-gold case with fluted bezel, a champagne-colored “pie-pan” dial with downward-sloped edges.

The Datejust is truly a universal design that works for everyone and in any occasion. First introduced in 1945, this model has remained one of the most iconic watch designs that has withstood the test of time. Over the years, the reference numbers and iterations changed ever so slightly, with a range of dial colors and bezel types. This example is a reference 1603 with a very unusual smoky lavender dial which will set you apart from others.
1314 Rolex Oyster Date Reference 6694
This Oyster Date is a perfect entry-level Rolex piece. It has all the well-loved look of other Rolex classics like the Datejust; simple and elegant with a pop of the date window with the iconic Cyclop’s window. Slightly smaller in size at 34mm, it would also be a nice piece for a man or a woman. The movement inside is a manual-wound caliber 1225 which brings out the vintage feel to the forefront. Actually, there is something nice about winding a watch every morning, just like a newly adopted ritual.
1319 Rolex GMT Pepsi Bezel
The GMT-Master reference 1675 with Pepsi bezel is one of the most iconic vintage Rolex watches. In production for 20 consecutive years, the reference 1675 was one of the more prolific models produced by Rolex in the '60s and '70s. The 1675 was first introduced with a glossy gilt dial, which was later changed to a matte dial in the late 1960 as you see here. The patina on the dial and the bezel truly make the watch a beautiful standout.
1320 Rolex Submariner 16800
The Rolex Submariner is one of the beloved watch model of all times. This transitional reference offers the classic designs we all love with the modern upgrade at the end of the 1970s. The reference 16800 represented a major upgrade for Rolex in 1979. The biggest difference is in the improved movement caliber 3035 with a higher frequency movement for further precision and with a useful a quick-set feature for the date. Its sapphire crystal also allowed for an increase in water resistance, from 200 to 300 meters.
1299 Rolex Datejust Grey Linen Dial
This Datejust reference 1601 is not only special because of its linen-finished dial, but also because it has a white-gold fluted bezel.

This example has a beautiful fluted bezel and a stunning linen-finished dial.
519 Doxa Chronograph
This Doxa steel chronograph brings out the vintage flair that is often seen with military chronographs. The combination of a black dial with a gilt print and the beautifully aged lume on the numerals and the hands checks all the boxes. The strong profile of the thick lugs adds a strong character to this piece.
