    Default Collecting vintage ROLEX

    Collecting Rolex watches.....especially Vintage Rolex....can be tricky.When I just started, I got my hands on any vintage Rolex that came my way.GMT 1675....Exp 1 1016.....dates 6694....etc....etc.

    Then I came across a book.'VINTAGE ROLEX SPORTS MODELS' by Martin Skeet and Nick Urul.Very good book.I highly reccommend this book.

    Taken from this book is a passage that has led me to sell off some of my non diving watches.It goes like this....."A considered collection is to choose a specific area or model to collect......A small collection, if tightly focused,can command a greater value than the sum of its individual pieces"

    I have since fine tuned my collection basing on this principle. I now basically collect divers.....especially 'SUBMARINERS',be it ROLEX or TUDOR.When this is done....I'll probably move on to GMTs.....

    If you pick up a starving dog and nurse him well, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
