An oldie but a goodie

Rolex GMT for graduation present in 1969 (they ran about $350 at the time). Stolen in 1983. Replaced in 1985 with a two-tone GMT with rootbeer bezel and dial. I wear it every day, hack it about once every couple months, and for off and on DST. It's currently within a second of these folks time:

Every now and then I look at a Breitling ... but why?

And now have a 2004 M3 along with my 2012 GTI. Don't mind the chrome wheels, it came like that, got some APEC EC-7s on the way.

Here are some of my old watches that I've sold:

Omega Seamaster GMT (a.k.a. the great white)



Omega Aqua Terra:



And the one I prob shouldn't have sold, the Sinn 656L, only 500 made.



If you can tell, I have quite a passion for watches and cars and go through both of them. Expensive hobbies to have! lol

I guess I have the same number of cars as watches the oldest one being a TUDOR Original Oyster Case by ROLEX Date & Day. The youngest being a simple CITIZEN. The ROLEX being over 50 years now and my daily companion. Mind you the TUDOR has been cleaned and received a new crystal some 4 times by now, each time the cost goes up as we all know

Watch collector Jeff Kingston describes his passion for mechanics and explains the natural link between driving pleasure and the joy of high quality watches. "Watchtime" Editor in Chief Joe Thompson explains why his readers have a natural interest in luxury and high end cars like BMW.

I'm a huge watch enthusiast. I was in to cars first, but ever since I got my Tag Heuer Link Automatic Chronograph at 15, watches and cars began to go hand in hand.

Now, I wear a Rolex GMT Master II daily.

Best regards,

That is a nice one

Mine is actually a TUDOR Oyster Prince ... writing is so small I had to get out my magnifying glass purchase price in 1962 was $387- or there about ... last apprized in 2011 in Vegas was over $18K ... tells you something about inflation

The single shot is from the Internet ... mine needs a new crystal again
