New York City Asphalt Watch

New York City Asphalt Watch 10 June 2019
How many of our readers who were in New York know about watches that are mounted on asphalt at the intersection of Maiden Lane and Broadway? They appeared there in 1899 when the jeweler William Bertman decided in this way to draw attention to his jewelry store. The audience was wildly delighted, because at that time clocks on poles were popular, and it was something new and unique. Every morning, Frank Homm, a store employee, set up his watch, but when he died, no one could handle it and had to be replaced with new ones. Since then, the watch has changed many times, as well as individual elements in the watch. And still, they are in the same place, despite the fact that the store has moved to a neighboring street.

Vacheron Constsntin Mecaniques Savage Collection
In Paris, a new unique collection of watches from Vacheron Constantin - Mecaniques Savage was presented. This collection is dedicated to the wild world of animals.

Usually, Vacheron Constantin does not advertise such novelties. But this time they made a “leak of information” and we can enjoy almost all the copies. More
Daytona Mark I
To date, the most popular watch in the world, by far - 🔥 Rolex Daytona 🔥. As for the aftermarket, Daytona is the collectors' favorite watch. For example, for many collectors, chronographs are divided into 2 categories - Daytona and everyone else. No matter how you relate to them, but the fact remains. Now at the peak of popularity at auctions - Daytona Paul Newman, but there is another model that is worth paying attention to. This is Daytona of the very first issue - Daytona Mark I. This watch was produced only in a short period in 1863 and in limited quantities, which gives them every chance to become the most expensive Rolex chronographs. Despite the high cost of Paul Newman (from $ 80,000), now they can be found at every auction and not even in a single copy. Almost every self-respecting dealer has a copy of the Daytona PN. Mark I is impossible to find, although, for a minute, this is the very first watch with which the history of the model began ☺️ That's what bad PR means. More
