Taking a Look at the Yemas at Watches of Knightsbridge

Here on Fratello Watches, we’ve featured a number of vintage Yema models on our site.

They were plentiful, robust – with most containing 773x movements […]

#TBT Tissot Navigator Yachting – After

Tissot Navigator Yachting Roughly 5 months ago I published a #TBT about a vintage Tissot Navigator. That article was titled „before”. Anyone who read that piece knows exactly why I gave that name to the write-up. The watch I bought was in sorry condition, the crystal was cracked and it was not original, the bezel […]

In this installment of the Vintage Market update, I’ll cover some relatively recent phenomena while doing my best to highlight some relatively available opportunities.

#TBT Leonidas & Heuer Bund Chronographs

A Happy Holiday to all of you who are celebrating!  Forgive the late publish today on Christmas Eve, but I’m currently on holiday in the state known as “Flori-duh” – where the craziness may begin early, but little gets done until late.  Double that with a household full of kids and you really get the picture!  Enjoy the time…and grab an egg nog and sit down for a lengthy read! December 4, 2015 was the Friday before I left Germany for the USA in the name of business and pleasure. Normally, a week before I leave for such a trip, […]
