I will post a couple photos of some of my vintage DJ's .... One is a 1601 the others are 16013 .. I love vintage Rolex because each watch has a story. One of the 16013's belonged to my dad and I got it when he died in 2010. I wear it the most because it was something he loved. The 1601 was somrhting I purchased from a jeweler in Atlanta that deals in fine watches.

I have fallen hard for this hobby/addiction! I'm loving this world of vintage Rolexes and the language you all speak:

My 1675 from 1970 with a lemony patina:




My GMT Master II with purple and pink bezel:

Hi I have a Oysterdate Prince, does anybody know if the end links can be replaced, with the springbar and the "cover"?

Hi i have a question regarding my oyster date Tudor, I don't wear the watch often can I use the manual wind to keep it wound up or will doing that damage my movement?

Newbie here wanting to join, my vintage 1940's Tudor Prima.

Hopefully members here can school me on these, this is my first and only and the net has been no help.

And sorry about the shadows on the dial, it is actually one shade, and the numerals and markers are gold.



And somebody said to buy elevator tickets from a senior member, so.... who's got those tickets?

Got to meet Bob Ridley and this Tudor is in good hands.

I found out it is triple signed, with an original Tudor marked movement and case. Well taken care of, the screw heads were not mangled and no stray OOOPPS marks across the plates.
