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.
