Red accents, an Oyster bracelet, and the workhorse Rolex 3135 caliber complete the picture of a versatile and striking watch. Two Rolex Day-Dates showcase the beauty and gravitas of Rolex’s longtime flagship. At 36mm, both of these Day-Dates include white metal cases (platinum and white gold), extravagant dials (glacier blue and salmon metallic), and diamond-index hours. Patek Philippe offers watch collectors two different faces in the form of a white gold regulator and a steel sports watch. The Patek Philippe 5235G “regulator” is an annual calendar that incorporates the case lines of the vintage 3448 perpetual calendar, the silicon components of the Patek “Advanced Research” series, and a model-specific micro-rotor automatic caliber to power its unique brushed-metal dial. In contrast, the Aquanaut 5167/1A is a full bracelet sports watch with a simple caliber 324 SC automatic movement, 120-meter water resistance, and a rare Geneva Hallmark caliber. That last feature is a scarce distinction only found on Aquanaut 5167s built between 2007 and July 2009. Needless to say, an Aquanaut on a bracelet is rare enough, so this example is a white whale for collectors of unusual and exclusive Patek Philippe models. Rare and highly collectible F.P. Journe watches enter the discussion courtesy of an early 38mm platinum/yellow gold dial Chronometre Resonance with brass movement and a 2015 38mm stainless steel Octa Calendrier limited edition of 38 pieces. Three Jaeger-LeCoultre watches – two complicated and one simple – brighten the table with grandeur from Switzerland’s Vallee de Joux. Tim has previously owned this model of white gold Duometre chronograph, so he speaks from the heart when explaining that one.
