Love the story

Love the story and the letter,especially the line in the gift letter that states that the Rolex representative would polish the scratches off the crystal for him based on the feedback that the crystal scratches too easily LOL

I believe one off these watches sold last night at Phillips auction lot 233 for 175,000 Swiss France plus fees.

Watch in the pictures ending xxxxx424 Dive logs in the name off Mr Kelly
