Rolex GMT- Master "Nipple Dial" in 18k

REF. 16758

The best of both worlds! With a vintage looking nipple dial but a more contemporary sapphire crystal, the 16758 is a great watch that bridges the divide between vintage and modern. Accompanied by its original oyster rivet band in 18k gold, this is a truly wonderful piece. The watch has recently been overhauled, and is keeping time.

Rolex Sea-Dweller "Great White"

REF. 1665

The classic definition of "the Dive Watch", the 1665 exemplifies what it means to be a tool watch. Rugged good looks and a historical pedigree are an unbeatable combo!

Rolex GMT-Master in 18k

REF. 1675

Nice examples of gold sports watches with acrylic crystals are exceedingly difficult to find in nice condition, which is why it's a real treat to be able to feature this guy. With a gorgeous faded bezel and retaining its original factory edges, this is a great example of the "deluxe" GMT-Master. Finished with its original jubilee band, this watch exhibits great charisma.

The Horological Minute
feat. Maria Giovanna Piva
This week, we bring to you an interview with a very special lady. Barely in her 20s, Maria Giovanna was born into the business. The daughter of a well known dealer, Maria Giovanna and her father Elvio have a beautiful shop in Padova Italy, called Tempvs. Majoring in business economics at university, Maria Giovanna realized early on that her heart was really in the family business, and as such started working with her father. An active player on the international watch scene, its always a pleasure to run into her, wether at the auctions in Geneva, an IWJG show in the USA, or at the Parma Fair. Read her thoughts about vintage Rolex in this week's Horological Minute.
