Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Watches Live with Tim Mosso takes a break for the US Independence Day holiday, but tonight’s recorded program features plenty of luxury watch fireworks. From Rolex to FP Journe and onward to Patek Philippe, this is a festival for watch collectors, watch enthusiasts, and watch buyers. Rolex watches on tonight’s table include an array of vintage and near-vintage Rolex sports watches including an early 1990s GMT Master II “born” with a Rolex Jubilee 62510H stainless steel bracelet, a 1974 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date with a double-signed “sigma” and “tritium” sunburst grey dial, a 1978 Rolex Submariner Date with a Rolex Oyster Bracelet 93150 and 580 end links, and an A-series Rolex Explorer 2 on a Rolex 78790 Oyster Bracelet. Omega watches include the spectacular Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Blue Side of The Moon” with a 44.25mm blue ceramic case and matching blue ceramic moonphase chronograph dial. For luxury watch buyers seeking a rough and ready “daily driver” for tough tasks a 38.5mm stainless steel Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Quartz provides a suitable alternative to the low-end Timex Ironman and Casio G-Shock stock. Grand Seiko of Japan is represented by the rare SBGR257 Automatic and a 2018 Grand Seiko Spring Drive Automatic SBGA259 “Golden Snowflake.” Patek Philippe’s Nautilus Annual Calendar on a rare brown rubber strap leads the line of high horology options that includes an A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Moonphase, a Glashutte Original PanoMatic Lunar in platinum, a Patek Philippe 5059R “Officer’s Watch” perpetual calendar retrograde, and an FP Journe Chronographe Monopussoir Rattrapante with full platinum case and a blue mauve dial.
