    taxman bought me a rolex ! but he doesn't know it

    when presented with a lump some tax demand - the only way to cheer oneself up is to treat yourself to a gift on the basis that it could have been more - so i have treated myself to a vintage 77' perpetual 1500 - i wouldn't buy a new one but would buy a vintage that has lost all the money its going to lose - as you might know i love my older watches and this one with the blue face and less frequently seen gold hands and batons has a lovely vintage charm look to it i think -really Name:  rolex movement2 copy.jpg

    Stunning! Was it a good deal? Private or dealer? If you bought wisely you'll never lose money on that. Looks great.

    Nicely done.
    If ever I were to own a Rolex, that would be a genuine contender.

    A classic choice & all the Rolex DNA is there. I love the domed bezel with the oyster bracelet- it gives an otherwise classy design a sporty feel!

    Yeah....I'm beginning to think the chronos. and divers are for the young "Sports" I'm thinking those days are over for me.
    A very nice Semi-Dress....Refined Gentleman's watch you got there.

    The movement looks a tad dirty to me, hows the time keeping?

    Being a wage slave I never get a demand - instead the taxman gets first dibs of what I earn even before I see it. Nice Rolex though, made even nicer by knowing who bought it for you.
