Many thanks to @ericmwind and Wind Vintage for helping me source this Very Rare Rolex Precision with a Dial like my grail, the 8171. In the words of my buddy @jeffari1 Eric is truly the white knight of the vintage watch world, in addition to being one of my closest and most valued friends. Oh, this also my first incoming of 2018, later this week will reveal the second! Thanks Eric!!!! And #feets (of my brother) #windvintage

Ref: #116518LN#Details. A fantastic gift from #Baselworld2017, the #Daytona in #Everose on an #Oysterflex strap. So many Rolex exclusive patents here, but the most understated is probably the strap. The Oysterflex is highly resistant to extreme temperatures and even chemical reactions. Afterall, the Daytona is still a professional watch, iconic in the racing world. If lux athleisure is your thing (it’s def mine), this is your watch. #HerChrono
SPOTTED: THE POST, starring #merylstreep and #tomhanks. >>>
Model: Panthère (small)
Ref: #WGPN0008 ***
Self-professed “emblem of the 80s”, Panthère de Cartier had a big moment on the wrist of Meryl Streep throughout The Post. Directed by Steven Spielberg, The Post details a moment in the life of Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper facing tough decisions in the years of Nixon. I saw the movie last weekend and loved it. I’m a writer, and I left the film determined to be even better at my job … and to purchase a gold Panther before 2019.

I was just informed that my love of Cellinis with jeans amounts to sacrilege. > Do you think this classically formal watch pairs well with casual attire? <
Cellini Details: Everose gold (Rolex’s term for pink gold), silver dial, and a leather strap. The traditional tux watch, I love a Cellini with an oxford button down and jeans.
Model: Cellini (L) and Air-King (R)
Ref: #50525 (Cellini) #116900 (Air-King)

What if TIME was a magazine about watches? Someone really dropped the ball there. #HerChrono
Model: Roadster (small version)
Details: This timepiece has a quartz movement so the draw for me is all about aesthetic. It hugs the wrist perfectly and the shape is classic. I also like the simplicity of the bracelet which is interchangeable. Simple. I’m not overthinking it today.
Welcome to Her Chronograph, a place on the internet for collectors to geek-out over timepieces. I created this feed to fill a void in the collector’s blogosphere for inclusivity. You’ll see here timepieces from my own collection, those of my friends, and those of celebrities we follow. Get in on the convo with hashtag #HerChrono. Let’s get started!
For my first post, I’m wearing a Datejust. Classic
Details: Rolesor (Rolex’s term for two-toned timepieces. But it’s “Rolesor” because Rolex.) Mother-of-pearl dial. Oyster bracelet. 3135 mvmt. Diamond indicators. Diamond bezel. Diamonds. Diamonds. Diamonds.
The dial is made of mother-of-pearl, but the color is surprising. Naturally a mix of purple, green, and pink, it sits regally under a diamond bezel.
