I finally found one of my bucket list.



I saw a photograph of this a year ago and I knew I had to find one. This is awsome.

They don't even include a couple of spare shirt buttons!

It's a neat item, but having one on your bucket list sounds a little extreme!

I have two lists, one for my Rolex watches and one for my Rolex accessores.


I have a lot of rolex accessories, this is just one more I needed to locate. I only collect rare Rolex accessories and I do not "hord" Rolex accessories buying duplicates or triplipicates, that would be the sign of a real mental case.

Same goes for my Rolex watches, why collect ten of the same Rolex watch when you can have a bucket list for ten different watches. I see that occuring in the watch world and that is also a mental case.

I collect only authentic Rolex watches, that have been not altered in any way, some people like to alter a real nice vintage Rolex by re luming the dial, refinishing the case thinning the lugs, now that destroys the value of the Rolex.

Can you believe some forum members really have double standards, if some embedded long term forum member shows a vintage Rolex that has been frankenwatched by a dial that has been refinished and now it glows the other forum members rave how great it is, however when another newer less known member shows the same type of vintage Rolex with a refinished dial the whole forum is ready to jump on them calling it a frankenwatch, junk, etc.

I see a lot of Rolex watches that are worthless from being restored after someone wants a vintage Rolex looking new.

As long as we get pleasure from our collections (in whatever form they take), that is the most important thing!

Enjoy!

And I won't ask which Rolex accessory you are missing, but I will look forward to seeing it when it arrives (hopefully soon!)...
