The ONLY difference is you have to pay extra 10 to 15% more buying at Rolex local AD!

One of the good amongst the worst investments





 WATCH FEVER

Who are the Philippine First Three OysterQuartz Day Date Watch Owner?


Left is my Rolex Day Date 18039 and Right is Robert's Ref 19018
 
 
 
I had lucky to see a mature and decent business man 10 metres away to tell he was wearing a Rolex at Bellevue Hotel Alabang this evening.

This is no ordinary Rolex, it is a Day Date with Quartz movement, due to the special design of Patek Philippe Like Bracelet and AP Royal Oak Like Watch case.  

It would not be mistakenly to be identified as The Famous Rolex Day Date OysterQuartz Ref 19018.

Oh Yes, when I approached closer, and I asked permission to sit down and started asking question about his watch. Well, he removed it and passed to me to scrutinize… Roman Numeral Dial and it seems to be the original colour was white and over the 37 years it changed to a patina yellow.

The Watch is heavily used as I can see signs of wearing. He told me it was bought in at US Navy with   USD5,000 after 40% discount in the year of 1978.

Robert is his name, he told me that at that time if you can provide the staff ID of an airlines, you are entitled to have less 20% discount at Rolex.

Oh, in 1978, a Rolex Date Just 36mm in Two Tone Rose gold was about HKD$3,700  and this Rolex OysterQuartz was sold at USD $5,000.  That is  the price for a Car.

He told me he is the FIRST Philippine people to buy this Watch.

Second is Eduardo Cojuangco (the owner of San Miguel)

And the third one is Eddie Diaz GSA of Korean Air.

After all these years, he had just serviced this watch in Rolex Service Centre TWICE.

He likes this watch for its accuracy and durability.

He is the Founder for WWW.thewinemuseum.org.

 
Remarks
Rolex Produced the legendary Oysterquartz since 1977 till 2003, with 1,000 units made every year.

So totally 25,000 OysterQuartz watches were made, and I estimate that there are 35%  Stainless steel watch, and 35% stainless steel and yellow gold, 20% yellow gold and 10% in White Gold.

Well, this Yellow gold is one of the 5,000 units.

DeepSea D-Blue Ref 116660 Available for Sale




There is very limited supply of this Watch from Rolex World Wide, as we had mentioned before
They want to use this D-Blue Dial to purge all available DeepSea sale clearance.

Of course that was my own thought as Rolex will never tell you or has never told you their motive.

I had sold only 3 pieces since September 2014 till now.

This is the one I found Dated March 2015. if you don't trust my instinct, or you should trust the data.

We have bought over 100 watches in the past 6 months, We get once 2 DeepSea.


This is one we are offering, HK$98,500

The DeepSea Special Booklet is included.

Watch Gathering 22 Aug 2015




 

 
 

This is the patented Longines Winding system.

 

We don't have big player bringing their gold watches..

By simples watches do not reduce the passion of our gathering.

A Piaget 18KT gold watch from our Lawyer lady.

A Grand Seiko and Sandoz that belongs to Father of Ben.

The Longines Conquest Conquest as the Flagship was the beginning of watches certainly wasn’t introduced by Longines, but they definitely utilized the strategy to its fullest potential, and still use it today.  It ran from 1954 to about 1959.
The first generation Conquest here is probably the most classic and easily recognizable iteration of the line for collectors of vintage watches.

Pictures taken from my Window

Clear evening
 

 Rains
 
 
 Cloudy morning
 
 
 
It rained again in this morning
I love this Canvas painting like Effect
 
 
 
Every week we have met so many different people, colleagues and top tier staff in the Company,
Sometimes your boss will question you why you take five minutes to pee but actually he took 15 minutes to smoke his cigarette.
In fact he can do, say, or whatever he does, as he is the boss.

One day when you retire, you can question him why he takes only one cigarette a time, why not smoke three sticks to Boost the Smoking Pleasure save his Time in smoking!?
So Westerners has said “Death is the final leveler”. Somehow the time will come, no matter how rich you are, how poor you are will be the same!
I saw Jimmy Carter had been running a speech in public at CNN about how he going to use his time in his last few weeks, he said he would leave it to the hands of god. He was so relaxed and spoke with smile… What a pathetic yet lovely scene to see this once the Most Powerful Man how to handle his rest few days of his life.
 
Yesterday the weather was fine, no rains., but at midnight it rained Buffalos and Hippos, I could not sleep and woke up to take this picture. This morning It seemed good, but after a while it rained again.
So within one day, Weather could be changing so abruptly.
Weather is somewhat unpredictable, somewhat like what we have faces with everyday, treat yourself better is the advice. No other better words.
 
"Have a Nice Day!"
