With The Horological Minute, Eric Ku and 10 Past Ten engage in a fascinating dialog with collectors and members of the watch industry, as they discuss anything and everything about watches. Think of it as the Proust Questionnaire for the watch aficionado.
My first watch was a gift from my dad when I was selected as the best european female tennis player 16 or under. I was 16 years old and the watch was a ladies Rolex Oyster with a black dial.•
I bought the "Relojeria Alemana" Rolex Submariner Date ref. 116610. Relojeria Alemana celebrated 135 years in 2014 and in order to celebrate this important achievement they produced 135 examples of this model with the case back engraved with their logo. I think it is a good investment and has a great history.•
Vintage is much more fascinating from my point of view and much more interesting for collectors, but i also enjoy modern watches.•
Yes, it was during the past summer in Paraggi ( close to Portofino, Italy). This place, "Le Carillon" is in an amazing bay, with a spectacular view on the sea. I liked the restaurant so much and I decided that my wedding had to be there !! I will get married on june 7, 2015, at "Le Carillon", in Paraggi! My fiancé ate raw fish ( I don't remember which fish exactly, because I'm not a big raw fish fan! ) and i ate some amazing Ravioli with mozzarella and tomatoes, very simple but typical and ideal for italians, and a carpaccio with fantastic flavors. I'm a dessert fanatic, so I of course had to order the tiramisu as well!•
I was wearing a Rolex Daytona ref. 6269 with diamonds on the dial and bezel.•
Rolex made the best innovations in the past century and they never stopped. They continue to improve the design and performance of their watches. Another interesting fact is that, when we talk about Rolex, their perceived perfection in what they make, or lack of flaws becomes a real value of the brand.•
Straps are fun, but I'm a bracelet kind of girl!•
Sub !! I love the design and I love the fact that it is ideal for every occasion: if you look elegant, sporty or casual, a Sub is always perfect. It looks great both on a woman and man's wrist.•
I would love to see a new Daytona in Stainless Steel. I think many collectors and aficionados are expecting it!•
A Rolex Deep Sea!
