Vintage Rolex Gmtmaster 16753 Bi Metal

Posted on

Vintage Rolex Gmtmaster 16753 Bi metal 18k gold and steel on a jubilee bracelet, a great watch by Rolex the Gmtmaster loved by pilots for years great versatile watch that we all know and love.  The Gmtmaster bi metal is a variant of the steel version which came into production much after the 1st Gmtmaster in the 50,s with a gilt dial with radium then in the 60,s they switched to matt dial with tritium hour plots then on to gloss dials with tritium white gold hour markers. They finished with the glossy dials with luminova hour plots with white gold surrounds started around 1999 and used to this current day.  Rolex always did the option of a jubilee bracelet or oyster bracelet which looks more sporty.

The vintage Gmtmaster have been become very collectable over the years the older the better matt and gilt dial win win to be honest, I do not think Rolex back then realized how nice and sort after the vintage Rolex would be in the future the world has gone vintage Rolex Mad.  Love all vintage watches.

Breitling Crosswind A13355 Stainless Steel Chronograph

Posted on

Here we have the Breitling Crosswind reference A13355 polished stainless steel is slowing becoming a classic watch design, I have owned a fair few over the years and they are not a small piece by any means, it measures 43mm in size with chronograph function with date window at 3 o clock.

The stunning white dial with raised roman numerals and raised Breitling logo also with a tachymeter around the inner bezel ring for timing distance to speed.  The rotating bezel just has the minute markers for diving and is water resistant to 100m although the primary function of the watch is designed for pilots. The sapphire crystal has a anti glare coating on both sides for zero sun reflecting with viewing dial while when flying at high altitudes.

This model comes in a few variants gold and steel and solid gold and was discontinued around 2005 for chronomat evolution which very similar but a few minor changes. A great value piece on the secondhand market for you buck in my opinion!
