Outfit of the day, the instagram style shots ala watch_fashionista, who usually shows off how she has paired her watch, with outfit, purse and jewelry.

Wow, super sweet 1680/8!!
Couldn't have got it from a better person.

I just love mine. Really hard to photograph.

You have a super collection, and one hell of a LV case!

Congrats.

Big congrats! The 1680/8 black dial is one of my favorite vintage Rolexes, and favorite YG vintage Rolex for sure. It's been on my mind for a while now but I haven't been able to pull the trigger yet. Really happy for you that you did!!

You have a beautiful collection. No bracelet on the gold sub or just changing things up? The gold sub is my favorite reference.

On the black nipple, I bought it with the bracelet. On the blue nipple, I bought on a strap. My wrist is small, so I may only be able to wear the black nipple on strap too.. I don't want to do any major changes to the links to make it fit my wrist..

Besides the awesome collection, I have to applaud the Louis Vuitton case that holds all the bling!
