Vintage Rolex is a Guy's best friend, just like diamonds are Gal's best friend..

Talking about vintage Rolex watches, these pieces are worth their places here for everyone to view.

These pieces are the bygone era of 1940s and 1950s. Unfortunately, they do not make things like they used to do. Everything now is mass produced, looking at their serial numbers, you will see that every year, the production numbers kept increasing.

Restoration of a 1960s Vintage Gents WristWatch

It is always interesting to find a piece of watch that you think it is a total junk and restored it to its formal glory. The below piece is a 1960s Vintage Gents WristWatch which I bought from a second hand shop overseas.

Prior to Restoration

After Restoration

 The watch has a new crown, a cleaning job done on it and a broken part replaced as shown below.

So remember, you can turn a junk into a jewel if you are willing to put the effort in it.
