Christian dives into the 6 new watches listed on Theo & Harris!
AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK
In 1972, Audemars Piguet released, what was at its time, the greatest steel watch ever created. And this, the reference 4100 is a part of that rich history. Its integrated bracelet is not only tight but original in its finishing, the thick bevels that define its case have eluded the polishing wheel and its bezel has gone virtually un-nicked. I have held quite a few Royal Oaks but this example, this reference 4100, is “take your breath away” good. At a fraction of the price of its predecessors, it represents tremendous value and on the wrist, its a dream.
This example, a vintage Powermatic in steel, is certainly no exception. In fact, it’s one of the most interesting LeCoultre’s I’ve ever owned. See the red window at 12? That’s a power reserve indicator and it lets its owner (and the world) know exactly how wound it is and how much longer it will run, without being charged. Since, it is an automatic watch and you’d never run out of power with it on the wrist, the function itself isn’t nearly as useful as it is interesting but still, it’s something that separates this watch from the pack. It makes it all the more complicated, beautiful and desirable.
The Cellini, like this stunning reference 5112, is a sleeping gem. It’s cased in 18k yellow gold, decorated with a minimalist champagne dial and powered by a decorated manual wind Rolex movement – it’s everything a truly fine dress watch should be and nothing more. Whether beneath the cuff of a blue oxford shirt or french cuff, it will never absolutely never fail to impress.
OMEGA SEAMASTER DEVILLE
I mean, wow. This is the stuff vintage watch dreams are made of – its gold, automatic, warmed by rosey accents on its silver dial and at the forefront, we’ve got broad dauphine hands. This Seamaster DeVille epitomizes the timeless taste of the Mad Men type – the gentlemen who felt that a truly impressive wristwatch was an absolute necessity.
ROLEX DAY-DATE REF. 1802
It’s a vintage Rolex reference 1802 in yellow gold with a champagne tritium dial. This Rolex Day-Date dates to 1971 and frankly, it’s a model of condition. Its extremely rare smooth bezel (which is what separates it from the typical Day date fare) is without a scratch or nick and beyond that, it gives the entire watch a more supple aesthetic.
When I began to explore the world of vintage ultra-fine dress watches, I found a mecca of undervalued watches by Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and, more than all, Vacheron Constantin. Now, they’re not easy to come by, but the almost absurd amount of punch they pack per dollar makes them well worth hunting for. I am more than proud to be offering this beautiful reference 6515 here for you to admire so please, enjoy!
