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.
Don't ask me why but since the day I've started to work I wanted a plastic crystal Rolex. At 17 years old I bought my first Rolex a GMT 1675 With black insert.•
My last purchase was a rare early Rolex Daytona 6265 big eyes. The dial is really amazing with that dark chocolate patina!•
have always preferred vintage sports model, but I've bought some new Patek Philippe that I really enjoy wearing in vacation.•
My last great meal was last week at Osteria Mozza in West Hollywood, I had the Tripe all a Parmigiana, the crispy Pig Trotter and the grilled Octopus with one of my favorite Italian wine a Bricco Dell'uccellone.•
I was wearing my Rolex 1665 mk2 thin case, very Italian looking LOL!•
I love the emotional part of it; each watch ages differently, and no two are identical. The story behind each individual watch is truly special and unique and adds to the romance of its past.•
Mostly bracelet as I think it's more like the original design, but I also like band especially during the winter.•
Lately while in the US, I love to wear GMTs, like this nice radial dial 1675.•
...and in the winter, I love wearing this "fun" gold 5513 Sub that I customized!•
Maybe a new version of the Big Crown? Something with charisma.•
Probably the most interesting watch I've found was a Rolex Daytona 6262 Paul Newman. It came from the original owner who was a jet fighter pilot for the USAF. He had worn it from his graduation until he got retired. He managed to take really good care of it, and I was so happy to be the next caretaker for that piece.•
This beautiful 5513 milsub.
