Collectors favorite #9: Thewatchdude2

In this episode of collectors favorite I present to you a guy that is so cool that he is allowed to put dude in his name.

He is the co-founder of Redbar Glasgow, he co-hosts wrist time podcast and makes the coolest instagram pictures ever. I present to you: @TheWatchDude2  What is your name? My Instagram handle is ‘TheWatchDude2’. What was your first watch? My first “proper” watch was a Hamilton Khaki Field Day Date...

Restoration project #1: Rolex 6564 cal. 1030 Part 2: Case & Bezel

Restoration project #1: Rolex 6564 cal. 1030 Part 2: Case & Bezel

In part two of this series we take a closer look at the case and the bezel. As we recall from our last blog we know that the bezel has an ugly crack and the case got eaten away on one lug. How are we going to tackle these problems? Let u first take a closer look at the bezel.  I talked with my dad about it and we were wondering about our options. We could just get an aftermarket bezel. This would look too new and would ruin the vintage vibe that this 50's watch has in my opinion. He could...

Restoration project #1: Rolex 6564 cal. 1030 Part 1: What is the situation?!

Yes, I spent hard earned bucks for this piece of old (slightly radioactive) crap. What is the plan? Restore it!  I can almost hear you ask 'What watch is this?'. Well thanks for asking! It is a 1956 rolex 6564 with a cal. 1030. Yes, the same movement as a James bond or the first explorers that were ever made. Only two paragraphs in but you're already getting why...

Collectors favorite #8: Sam (from sams.watches)

 I like to offer a blog post with a co-student in a different country. We met true instagram, the love for watches and also something with a tall watchmaker. He recently started his own dedicated instagram page for watch sales. Rerun watches, a place where you can find watches that are in search of a new loving home. A kind student kid who has a heart for watches, what is there not to love? Also he does own a strap of me, maybe I should start to call this blog series 'consumers favorite'. I like to present to you: Sams.watches  Who...

Collectors favorite #7: Cédric Aerts

This week we have a one on one session with a collector who truly became a friend through the love for watches. A man who can be found in the kitchen of Koxx or playing with watches with a beer on the side. Is it a cliché that a chef collects watches? Yes it is but he is still a friend so I am obligated to give him his moment to shine. I present to you the man, the myth, the legend (and the man who did not finish his last beer when we met):  Cédric Aerts. Who are u?  Cédric...
