That time when I visited @amsterdamvintagewatches and had a good old catch up with good friend Jasper. Talked about the amount of local first owners of some of the finest vintage watches in Netherlands 😱 Also showing me this cool @tudorwatch Homeplate in immaculate condition 👍🏼👍🏼
I got a chance of a lifetime to wear a NOS 1970 Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph 7032/0 known as "Home Plate" due to the baseball home plate hour markers last night. @michael_hopper2 from @tudorwatch brought it from the Tudor vaults. Even the sticker was still on the caseback. This chronograph features screw down crowns and is waterproof to 50m. The movement is a Valjoux 7734. Measures to 39mm that wears perfectly. Unique 45 minute register, instead of usual 30 minutes. Reborn with the recent Tudor Heritage Chrono series. Such a joy to engage with this watch at the Tudor watch dinner last night @frankadamsjewel in Albany, NY. This was a #watchgeek highlight for sure!! It was like being able to wear a priceless museum piece. Thanks to the fine people at Frank Adams Jewelry and Tudor that made this happen! #borntodare
NOW he knows n can use THIS picture to report THIS TRUE discovery of the decade to his 74.8K followers
These #RolexProtoTypeDials , an example shown here first time in the history of #Instagram , are in COMPLETE Forms with Dial Feet mounted onto a Die of #ValjouxCal7750 movement frame.
These are believed to be 100% original from #MetalemDialMaker of #RolexTudor who made the same #TudorHomeplate Dials of #Ref703x#Chronograph
THIS example n few more have since been kept secretly by an Anonynous private collector within the last decade.
He is a keeper of many facts n truths about many things of #vintageRolex .
He seeks NO fame nor the Fortune.
Unlike those other guys like THIS fairytale story maker, spin doctor, professore, used watch dealer n the Joker himself as mentioned in here who possess many junk sample Dials found from few Singer's Saleman's DialSamples book folders, n then the dials were clobbered into #FrankensteinedWatches#ForSale 😁😁😁
HERE is the same Dealer who beats his chest n claims he has for many years studied the #TiffanyRetailed#vintageRolexwatches thus he is the Expert on the subject.
On his page, there is THIS #Ref7032#TudorHomeplate which he announces #ForSale n claims as being the #ONE &OnlyTiffanyRetailedTudor watch in the world n thus he would expect his followers to believe he has a much higher valued watch.
BUT sorry to say, it took Orchi who is just an observer cum watch critic, n never an expert in any fields, only 2 minutes to bust his dishonest acts on his other watches as well as this one as a doctored n fake watch.
Of course O cannot prove that as O did not catch or bust him red handed how the dealer managed to fake THIS watch.
BUT one thing O can be sure that IF anyone were to think logically, or did a search in Google, Yahoo, MSN, Alibaba, in eBay or the entire #WWW , one would NOT find another similar Tudor Homeplate watch like THIS.
Infact, one will find instead, another one n only #TudorPrinceOysterDate with "TiffanyLogo" that was sold in eBay once in 2011. O sees that as having the faked logo too.
The same eBay watch was featured in #VRF forum in 2011, where other members could not believe the watch at the time.
Then 5 years after that in 2016, the same Dealer self proclaimed as the expert had responded in that posting to claim the eBay watch as "Totally genuine" printed with the 5th Buffer used for printing the "TiffanyLogo"。。When in the entire WWW history since 1996 or so for more than 20 years, one cannot find any shred of evidence tying Tudor with Tiffany&Co , that would mean the same Dealer @rolexvintage.it is full of 🐃💩 doctored watches.
Or just ask any honest dealers or collectors who has been dealing or collecting watches far longer than Orchi, O thinks they too would say the same, the guy is full of 🐃💩 n he is crazy.✊🛫💦💦😁😁😁
O is SO glad to see that THIS piece of made up, put together the so called #BlackCat#TudorHomeplate is actually a fcukingv#FrankenWatch from #UnusedLooseDials initially found in a watch fair in..err...USA, which were #NeverBeenReleased in the 40 years history of #RolexTudor n it was only in recent 4 years or so being Hyped by those few ✊🛫💦💦 #WankingBigNameDealers n #SpinDoctors with 🐃💩 estimation of HK$1,000,000 or $133,333.33cents at #PhillipsAuction DID NOT sell!😁😁😁 Mark Orchi's words for THIS, the people whom had stupendously believed in, n collected these kind of #FrankenWatch would be like ants trying frantically to jump off from the burning HOT pot with these watches as O speak from NOW!
So that is another Chinese proverb from O for those Buyers whom had otherwise believed recently that these watches were #NOSnFRESH#BarnFinds .
WHY? The fcuking #wankingBIGNameDealers would be the 1st ones to dump it beginning from NOW also!😁😁😁 HK$1,000,000 estimation for #RolexTudor made up, put together n fitted from a fcuking #LooseDial
NOT so smart auction house, O would criticise also in here.😝😝😝 Oh by the way, last O heard, 25 more of these #LooseDials were also discovered in Singapore...err..geez O forgets the location name.
Damn O is really getting too old to recall it now.
What a joke that must have been. Just look at the fcuking watch. The band is worn out, the bezel too, n the watch case is even seen as being tired. Suddenly the fcuking watch has an NOS Dial + New Hands that looks like they were fitted just yesterday. How the fcuk anyone even with half a 🐮 sense can believe in any of it?
