      Hello all,

      those of you who know me more closely know that I collect basically by filling a grid of Rolex models and decades. My friends and me call that Watch Bingo happy.gif

      Today I would like to show you my first vertical Bingo, a column of six Submariners, from the 50ties to the naughties. And here they come:


      The Naughties:

      16610LV from 2003. F1 series, flat four. The first and rarest LV.

      The Nineties:

      16618 from 1991. Great watch with a nearly unpolished case.

      The Eighties:

      16800 from 1984 with a Ghost inlay and wonderful patina.

      The Sixties:

      5513 from 1965 (as old as me). Gilt hands and perfect Gilt Dial.

      And all together:

      Hope you enjoyed it. Most likely the next bingo will be the GMTs. Horizontal Bingos are more challenging, as each decade definitely has some grails. But I'm working on it happy.gif
