This week is a good one. We have a diverse selection of watches, as usual, with brands like Rolex, Gallet, and Cartier all represented, and styles ranging from your cool rough-and-tumble tool watches to classic gold watches with bright stone dials (and full gold bracelets). But these aren’t your run-of-the-mill selections and each has something special to offer. Read on to see the full selection.
1960s Patek Philippe Reference 570
The Patek Philippe reference 570 is one good-looking watch. What makes this reference so special is that it features a Calatrava case shape but in a 35mm size – this may sound small, but this puppy wears on the large side and straddles the vintage/modern line very nicely. Inside is the reliable caliber 27-SC movement, a manually-wound movement that is classic Patek. This is a fantastic dress watch start to finish, and you can read more about it here.
1960s Gallet MultiChron 45M
This Gallet MultiChron 45M has everything you want in a vintage chronograph: a stainless steel case, a well-balanced dial, and simple pump pushers. Additionally, inside is the coveted Valjoux 7733 movement. If chronos are your thing, then this watch is for you. You can read all about here.
1989 Rolex Submariner Reference 5513
Rolex produced the reference 5513 Submariner for over 30 years, and it’s easy to see why. This example was made in 1989 and features a gorgeous black dial with beautiful vanilla-colored indexes with white gold surrounds (a trait of these later models). You won’t find a more classic tool watch than this, and you can read all about it here.
Wait, There’s More
In addition to these three highlights, we have a a great selection of other watches: a 1972 Rolex Datejust Reference 1603, a 1946 Cartier with round stepped case ("Montre Ronde A Escalier" in French), and a 1978 Rolex Oyster Date Reference 1500.
