Together with two watch friends, I attended the watch fair in D?ºsseldorf yesterday. It was held in the Radisson SAS Hotel. Only a 2 hour drive and I had discovered in the past that it is definately worth it. A lot of vintage Speedmasters, Flightmasters and pie-pan Constellations, IWC Portugiesers and even an IWC Tourbillon and lot… a lot.. of Rolex. Vintage to new, probably the whole range was there 🙂 From 1675 to Double Red Sea-Dwellers. The quality of the offered watches was high and I couldn’t detect a single stand with junk from the attic 😉

Personally, I didn’t buy anything but I got a good feeling what I could be saving for in the next couple of months. My two watch friends did buy very nice watches. Congrats to the both of you 🙂

Here are two pictures from someone over at the R-L-X forum that he made during the watch fair in D?ºsseldorf. And yes, that is me on the second picture. Bit blurry (I guess it was made with his cellphone), but I recognized myself.

    I am trying to verify the hologram on my 1986 submariner. It appears to be origional, but it does not say ‘rolex’ nor does it have the model number on it. It simply is a hologram of the word security in various languages. Any help out there… Thanks
