One of the Dirty Dozen.
This watch is for the nostalgics in this world who value the story as much as they like the watch. The second world war was one of the darkest times in the history of mankind. National economies dedicated everything to the war industry because there was no other choice. People were poor and commercial watchmaking was temporarily replaced by military watchmaking. Switzerland was as a neutral country the right place to produce these watches. Britain was at war so the British army had need for military watches as well. Instead of adjusting an existing model, like the Rolex Milsub of the Royal Navy, the British government invited all Swiss watch brands to build them military watches to the army's standards. It had to be great quality and directly produced by the thousands because the war had already started. What happened was that 12 Swiss brands jointly started producing one type of watch, all destined to the British army. The producing brands were the following; Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, Jaeger Le-Coultre, Lemania, Longines, IWC, Omega, Record, Timor and Vertex, jointly called 'The Dirty Dozen'. The unique thing about these watches was that they were practically the same but just had a different brand name printed on the dial above the arrowhead logo. The case backs were all stamped with a case number, a military number and 'W.W.W.' on the inside. This literally meant Watch, Wrist and Waterproof, so much for fun facts about this watch. The watch case measures 35 mm. which feels exactly right. The white printed numerals are well legible on the black dial. The military hands in this watch show some age, but that is part of the package when it comes to the dirty dozen watches. The tritium has gained a nice patina over the last 70 years as well. The overall condition is great and the story is one of the best out there. Multiple watch magazines and blogs have dedicated articles to the Dirty Dozen watches, and with the current vintage watch market these watches have gained a lot of popularity. Finding one in this condition is getting more difficult every day. Visit our store in the Reestraat, Amsterdam, to see this piece of history.

Pepsi Gilt + full set!
A Rolex GMT-Master from 1965 with all papers and service history documentation. This watch tells a story. A set this beautiful and complete is very special and highly collectable. The Rolex 1675 is the 2nd generation GMT-master, after the first model with the Bakelite bezel. This is one of the earlier models with a Gilt dial, this is a classic method of gold letter printing into the dial. Gilt letter printing was discontinued by Rolex in 1965 and has become a highly sought-after characteristic among watch collectors. The condition of the dial makes or brakes the beauty of such a watch, and our's is simply magnificent. The Gilt letter printing on our watch is fully intact, it even still has the glossiness which you want it to have. The hands in this GMT master have a nice vintage look and are filled with nice aged tritium. Combine this with the spotless black paint on the dial and still perfect tritium dots with matching patina, and you'll have a true collector's piece. Not even mentioning the original oyster bracelet which is equipped. (The little scratches on the picture are on the plexiglass, none in the dial) The documentation of our watch makes it better than many similar GMT's. Why? Warranty papers are lost on almost every 1960s watch we come across. Having the original papers makes the watch even more complete and reliable, and our watch still has its papers with corresponding case numbers. If this doesn't persuade you yet, all receipts from different years of movement service are included, this will tell you where this watch has been and by who en when it was serviced. A 1965 watch this special and complete is even rare to us, visit our store for more insight into this beauty. We are located in the Reestraat (9 streets), Amsterdam.
Super rare original enamel dial!
Old Logo+ Dutch date
Steel chronograph + Original condition
Through our contact in Germany, we have acquired a perfect Breitling Chronomat reference # 808. The steel chronograph is the predecessor of the Breitling Navitimer and is in diameter a size smaller, 37mm. Our model produced in 1966 and is, therefore, a second generation. The turning bezel has no pearl edge anymore like the first generation. The state is really great and the watch case has suffered little and is still pretty tight. Both the hands and the dial are perfect, only on the inner ring a dark spot can be seen. The pushbuttons and crown are original. The steel band is not original from Breitling. It is of course great to place a leather strap on it, we have a great collection in stock. Our friends from Fratellowatches have written a nice article about the Chronomat reference # 808. Herewith the direct link: Fratellowwatches.com Are you looking for a distinguished vintage men's watch, we welcome you in our store in the Reestraat, one of the original 9 streets in Amsterdam.

Full set + like new
From the hand of the Master. In 1985 Kurt Klaus had the marvellous idea for the Perpetual IWC DA Vinci, named after the great Leonardo himself. In the course of long walks with his dogs, he mentally sketched out a new kind of calendar module that would comprise just 81 individual parts and function autonomously, with virtually no correction, until 2499. Here you see one of the last fullest available: box, papers, service papers, instructions and also the glass tube with the other century's. So not only for you, the next generation but for the generations until the year 2499 will enjoy this timepiece. So are you looking for a treasure who can become a family piece, maybe this is the one!
