Younger look of Rolex Day Date Purple-Blue Dial with Diamond

After I custom ordered a Purple-Blue Croco strap, this Rolex Day Date does not look so mature and sophisticated as it used to be, in fact this Rolex can be worne by man of age below 35 and Woman of age 25. Believe me, three out of 4 men and 4 out of four women has the same criticism as mine! HK Snob

Vintage Patek Philippe 38mm chronograph with moonphase

This is a watch being extensively used for more than 20 years, watch of a Dutch friend of mine.

Of course from "Plating" of the gold, we know that this is not authentic Patek Pilippe Watch. As genuine Patek Philippe does not have "Gold Plated Watch"!

We do not encourge to buy this kind of watch, but in fact the quality of the Calibre is good at least lasting for 20 years.

However the time keeping is bad and the plating is gone, looks awful, there is nothing Patek at all

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Ref. 25863T1

This is not the watch for me as my wrist is not big enouh to carry such watch!

Cal. 2226/2480 with 54 jewels. Watch proof.

The Christie's Final bid came to USD$30,000.00. I think that this watch is losing his glory as comparing with the time Arnold worn it as on the Terminators III in 2003. is an Limited to 750 pieces.

USD$30,000.00 is considered Good deal!
