Xmas present from the wife....................

A one owner 1.5m 5513












I haven't bought a vintage watch in the last 3 years and must admit I have been searching for a while for a watch new to the market, but Santa beat me to it.

All the best

That Submariner really was a terrific find by your wife, John; a real "Christmas cracker"!!

...it may have the effect of pulling you back into vintage.
I hope your wife realizes that this is a bit of a double-edged sword.
Merry Christmas, John, and I hope you get a ton of pleasure from that fantastic gift and everything else in life on into the New Year!
All the best,
Tom

and they know my interest and love of vintage Rolex.

Not taking anything away from her excellent choice and taste in watches on this occasion......she still calls them 'mucky' or 'dirty' faced watches!!!!!!!!!!!!
