Oris Aquis Date
Oris Aquis Date – Offer from Govberg Jewelers: SOLD

Oris Aquis Date

Oris creates some great watches at a competitive price. Their watches are well designed and include details that make them very comfortable and pleasurable to wear.

The Oris Aquis Date is a great example. Its hours, minutes, and seconds feature a clean design and its date wheel matches the dark case and dial (thank you Oris). This watch wears great on the wrist and the folding clasp is truly one of the best I’ve ever seen in this price range. If you’re looking for a stand out version, this Orange edition is a great choice, especially if you are Dutch like me.

Enthusiast’s corner: Rare or exceptional timepieces

Sarpaneva Korona Moonshine
Sarpaneva Korona Moonshine – Offer from Kellokonttori: SOLD

Sarpaneva Korona Moonshine Piece Unique

Stepan Sarpaneva is a Finnish watch maker that creates unique timepieces in the spirit of traditional watchmaking art. His creations feature a characteristic design and many of them are inspired by the moon, the only natural source of light for many days of the year in Finland.

The Korona Moonshine is a typical Sarpaneva designed watch with a large moon on the dial. You read the time from a display on the 6 o-clock position. Another moon can be found on the rotor, which you can see through the glass case back.

Steal of the week: Great value for the money

Rolex GMT Master
Rolex GMT Master Ref. 16750 – Offer from R. Hackbarth Uhrenpapst Frankfurt : SOLD

Rolex GMT Master Ref. 16750

There is no need to explain Rolex, and this is probably the most versatile model out there. With its iconic red and blue ‘Pepsi bezel’, you can spot the GMT-Master II from miles away.

Add the comfort of the Jubilee bracelet and you have the best of (neo)vintage Rolex on your wrist. If you combine this watch with a variety of bezels and an oyster bracelet, you can even enjoy multiple watches in one.
