Hi Jim...

November 21 2011, 10:23 AM 


I cant help but notice that you are looking to buy some of the rarest and most desirable Vintage Rolex ever found and yet you seem to have very little knowledge or experience.

Hey, there is nothing wrong with starting at the top but its just not something ive seen before.

I guess im just being nosey and wondering what your end game is?

Seen it before, usually finance sector guys spending year-end bonuses...

November 21 2011, 3:12 PM 

...on toys like Vintage Rolex & Patek. They start at the top because they can. happy.gif
I can't relate, though--must be nice (if a little too easy). wink.gif
Best,
T.

History of the Unique 6200......(more)

November 21 2011, 8:44 AM 

In these times one cannot buy cheap or a bargain at an auction due to the internet and the fact that collectors are far more knowledgeable than in the past. which is a good thing.

There are only on a few occasion when the above theory goes out the window:-

-when a watch comes up that no one has seen before.

-when the auction house messes up the condition report.

-When the competition are a sleep or arrive late (very very rare).

This 6200 was listed in the sothebys auction dated April 2008, and the auction house put out a horrendous condition report that frightened off all the private buyers and most of the dealers. I felt sorry for the consignee. On that particular auction they had 3 great Rolex watches on offer. A 6538 4 line tropical (I was the under bidder), the 6263 Albino (I was the under bidder) and this most amazing 6200 with a bonus of a mint Milgauss insert.

after examening every part of the watch (completely stripped down bare), I was in a state of shock. It was totally original.

This watch needs to be in Auros 100 best Rolex watches.

best,
K

Stunning watch and a great score. Maybe people were tapped out from Revolution...

November 21 2011, 3:07 PM 

...and missed this piece.
Although at $115k, there must have been a few contenders left standing in the room with you 6 days later.
Either way, that's a killer and if I were a betting man, I'd predict it would end up in Gary's or KevinO's collection before long. At least it would have in the old days...
Good to see you posting here especially when you are showing us such an ultra-rare specimen like this beauty.
Regards,
T.
