Rolex Milgauss "Box and Papers"

REF. 1019

An oddball in the Rolex lineup, the Milgauss was produced since the 1950's in three main iterations. The 1019 was in the catalog from the early-mid 1960s, until around 1990. A real tool watch, it had no practical use for anyone that was not a scientist hence is relative rarity. This particular example was purchased from Bucherer and has its original sales invoice and papers. Unfortunately, most watches sold by Bucherer feature papers that are hand written and not punched, but we guarantee the authenticity of this full set.

Rolex Sea-Dweller "Matte Dial" Transitional

REF. 16660

The best of both worlds! The transitional 666 features the robust sapphire crystal with the charm of a matte style dial. This particular example is just back from service and has a new crystal fitted with a beautifully detailed case. A great watch that can take a beating and still function perfectly.

Rolex Submariner "Non-Serif" Dial

REF. 5513

A nice and clean example of a "Non-Serif" dial 5513. Perhaps the most iconic watch Rolex has ever made, the 5513 has shared Hollywood screen time with many action stars and heroes. This guy is about as nice as they come, and is ready for whatever you'll toss its way, wether you're James Bond or a desk jockey just fantasizing about being James Bond.

Rolex Tudor Submariner "Snowflake"

REF. 9411/0

Perhaps one of the most in demand watches today, is this "Lowly" Tudor Submariner. Featuring a unique snowflake pattern luminous and hands, and a lovely blue color, this guy is so popular it has been re-relased by Tudor in a couple different flavors. This example has a great look, with nice dark patina on the hands and makers, and a nicely faded bezel insert.

The Horological Minute
feat. Morgan Cardet
This week, we bring to you an interview with Morgan Cardet, whom I affectionately call "The Brains" behind the operation at Matthew Bain Inc. While not really the entire brain trust, Morgan has established himself quickly as a knowledgeable player in the watch world. Dealing in vintage and modern watches for over six years, he has a keen grasp on market trends and pricing and is in tune with what collectors want. Among other things, Morgan is also in charge of "Wirelug", the eBay subsidary of Matthew Bain Inc. There, he is responsible for selling hundreds of watches a month, ranging from Rare Rolexes, to that strange looking 60's dive watch that your weird uncle gave you. A real genuine guy who loves watches just like all of us, Morgan is this week's Horological Minute.
