  • Vintage GMT Watches in NZ?

    As titled... My previous post here alludes to the fact I'm hunting for a new Rolo BLNR, but what with the waitlist extending beyond my birthday, I thought I'd look into the vintage watch scene in NZ and see what's available?

    Any pointers? Locations? Forums?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    you could try some of the boys in the redbar group. there are quite a few with extensive and varied collections who may want to sell or trade.
    check their facebook page for a start or someone here may be in the group.

    good idea to look vintage. a 1968 mk1 just sold on the Omega forum for just under 13k us, which, given the price of the new ones on the speculators market, is a steal!

    Despite having the numbers, there is the crazy man in the mountains that none of the tribes will go near!
    Always aim to be that man.

      Hi - I'm also interested in a BLNR (which would be my first Rolex). A "big" birthday passed recently so I thought of a Rolex and had no idea about this crazy "shortage". Had I known, I would have tried to buy much earlier...Very frustrating. Any thoughts on sourcing either the new Basel model, or a used one? Please let me know, thank you.
