A solid gold Cartier tank watch. This model has been consistently produced by this famous watch and jewellery company
since the 50's. It's a winding model as contrasted with the newest models which are battery operated.
Tudor - an NOS 1930's or 40's gold filled watch with the original pig leather strap sewed on to the fixed lugs, with
the original unbranded buckle. This plus the following Rolex watch (no. 16) were said to have been left behind
in a watch maker's caabinet and forgotten with time. It was discovered in the early 90's and remarkably still has the
original watch maker's sticker on the back with the original penned markings.
A Rolex 1950's model watch with gold plated body and stainless case back, as well as a two-tone dial. Research
has revealed that this is a model for the Australian market, verified with my having bought it from an Australian who comes
over to Manila at least once a year, and brings and sells vintage watches to fund his visits.
An Imperial wristwatch factory-converted from a pocket watch body and movement. With big soldered lugs and
gold filled case. The interesting thing about this watch that makes it collectible is the fancy dial made up of fancy
hands, and a fancy dial where we notice a variety of colors such as red, gold, pink, blue, black and white. Nothing
like this can be found in today's watches. When I wear this watch, I look at it not to tell the time but to admire and
be impressed with how pretty the dial is.
