It’s Wednesday and you know what that means â watches! (#watchwednesday â is that a thing? If not, it is now.) This week we bring a selection of six watches, mostly in yellow gold and from the 1950s and ’60s but each one brings something different to the table. We have your chronos, your dress watches, and your Rolexes. Read on to see what we have in store for you.
A 1950s Doxa Dato-Compax In Pink Gold
This triple calendar chronograph from Doxa is not only good looking, Â but it’s also powerful too. The beautiful pink-gold case and well-balanced dial make this watch really special on the wrist. But don’t be fooled by the lustrous exterior â this watch is powered by the ubiquitous Valjoux 72C movement. All this for $4,000. Click here for the full listing.
A 1954 Audemars Piguet Ultra Thin Reference 5403 in Yellow Gold
Audemars Piguet is most often associated with hefty Royal Oaks, but what a lot of people might not know is that they used to produce one of the world’s thinnest movements â the caliber 2003. Here you have an excellent dress watch retailed and signed by famed luxury Swiss retailer GÃ¼belin that also houses the 1.64 mm thick movement. Not only does this watch look great â it also comes with its original box, invoice from GÃ¼belin, the check that bought it (for $486), and extra mainspring. For more on this watch click here.
A 1960s Universal GenÃ¨ve Uni-Compax In Yellow Gold
And finally, we have a crowd favorite â a Universal GenÃ¨ve Uni-Compax. This bad boy has a yellow-gold case with stunning brushed silvered dial. The bi-register chrono is powered by the caliber 285 manual-winding movement. The yellow-gold case has signs of oxidation, which is always a nice touch. Click here to see the full listing.
And There Is More!
We also have three awesome Rolexes, including a Perpetual Oyster Date reference 1500; a Precision from 1955; and a yellow-gold Day-Date with German date disc. Be sure to check out all the new watches here.
