  • So when I say New Old Stock I mean it! This Phenix watch from the 1960’s has never been worn. Phenix was one of the most technologically advanced manufacturers in Switzerland holding 18 watch patents. At one point they had a working relationship with Nivada Grenchen. Unfortunately they ceased making watches in the 1970’s. Probably another victim of the quartz crisis! Their movement manufacture was merged with ETA. Check out the factory sticker on the back!#vintagewatch#vintagewatches #phenixwatch  #phenixwatches #newoldstock #nivada #nivadagrenchen

  • The one and only Rolex Oyster Quartz DayDate. This is a watch, which Rolex will probably never produce again, as their sole motivation for producing it back in the 1970s was to save the company from being devoured by the “Quartz Crisis”. I honestly find this watch sort of comical, as it goes against the mantra that “real Rolexes shouldn’t  tick”, which I commonly hear quoted by non watch enthusiasts, and popular rap songs alike. 
Nonetheless, it is still a magnificent watch to wear, and a beautiful a piece of horological history to look at on the wrist.

  • Errr… Orchi Palar’s 6538 Mil Spec Beyeler service dial….. Orchi Palar and his “partner” purchased the “genuine” dial from a UK seller in October/November of 2016. Their plan was simple, take ultra hi res-pics of the dial so a counterfeiter could reference them. Sell the original quickly. 
Shortly after receiving the dial and photographing it, Orchi sent his hi res-images to his counterfeiting resources. Then Orchi quietly started shopping the original dial around to dealers and collectors. In early 2017, the samples of the dial worked up from the photos started to roll in for Orchi and his partner to approve. 
Orchi and his partner were not happy with the samples though. Being they hadn’t sold the original dial yet due to little interest in it, O and his partner decided to send it to the counterfeiter who provided them with the best sample. They figured providing the dial maker with both hi res-photos and the actual dial would help him achieve a perfect 1:1 copy of the original. 
In 2018, the copies were delivered to Orchi along with the original. Pleased with the run, Orchi quietly began to shop the original around again along with the fakes. 
Orchi first posted in 2018 the 6538 BC with Beyeler dial. It isn't clear if the dials shown in Orchi’s photos are of a fake or the original. Orchi and his "partner" received at least a ½ dozen copies. It's believed that a dozen and a half in total are floating around today.

  • Guess what day it is?? #speedytuesday 
Here we have 2 speedmasters  that have been discontinued but still hitting the markets hard and holding value amongst enthusiasts. Also good entry level watches if you are just looking to get started in your timepiece journey. :
➡️ Speedmaster Chronograph Date- 3513.50. This 39mm watch features the 25 jewels Omega movement Caliber 1152 aka Valjoux 7750 with chronograph complication. 50m water resistant, 44hrs power reserve, automatic movement. This timepiece features a beautiful 3 link design omega bracelet(similar to a Rolex.president) with a trigger release clasp. Beautiful dial finish with satin-finished and polished indices and highly polished bezel. I personally love this as it’s handsome enough for a dressy outfit yet still has that sporty vibe to be dressed down. :
⬅️Speedmaster ‘Reduced’ - 3510.50. Also featuring a 39mm case and 47jewel omega caliber 3220 with chronograph complication. 30m of water resistance, 40hrs power reserve and automatic winding. The bracelet is an older 1459 style that actually looks and feels like the Rolex president as well but a stamp clasp. This ‘little brother’ of the Speedmaster pro(Moon watch) also has the domed hesalite crystal & matte black dial with the seconds and hour subdials(Just different positions) but has it’s subtle way of differentiating itself and being very versatile with a wide array of straps and can be dressed up nicely.

Both are gorgeous nonetheless with beautiful lumes. 
Which one do you prefer? - 💰Both available for purchase 💰
