I was really impressed by the warm welcome from all the great Rolex
collectors that come to Parma every edition. I also got so many nice
remarks about our previous Passion Meeting and many asked me to arrange
a 'italian' version...maybe in the future guys, thanks for the compliment!!

What can I say about the fair besides that the accomodation
was much better this time, the weather outside was 30+ degrees,
the prosciutto was as delicious as always and everybody was
prepared for second part of the season... the booths where very
full with Sports models in all kinds of versions but the focus
was again on quality...difference in price between nice and perfect
is getting bigger and bigger...those couple of super interesting
examples where sold high in a second, looks like there's still
plenty of $$ around to buy a perfect vintage Rolex. Too many buyers!

We had a great dinner on friday night with excellent food & wine and
it's was super to see everybody again after the holidays. I was more
more impressed from this time show compared to previous Parma edition.

To be honest, I did so much talking that I all forgot about making pictures.
Besides that, it's for me getting more and more difficult to share all
special Rolex that pass by my hands because of privacy reasons but I can
assure you all that many exceptional rare ones are still around to discover.

So here's a short impression of my trip...

I started at L'orologio in Bologna wink.gif
