Hello everyone,,,,

Fratello Watches just published a nicely detailed interview with our very own Fred and Rene:

http://www.fratellowatches.com/vintage- ... nterviews/

I love Fred's quote: "I’ve never understood why a collector would turn to Rolex and I know I’m quite lonely in this opinion.

Fred, you are not alone!

:mrgreen:

Your link doesn’t go to the article, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t new and from a few years ago? Rene is floating around in the crystal blue ocean on his boat - dont suspect he’s contributing much these days to watch interviews.

well, actually the interview was in 2015, re-published in 2018 ;)
yes, Rene is catching Mahi-Mahi in the Caribbean waters now, rarely giving interviews.

I have read that interview many times. Awesome one and i love that sentence too.
Everytime i see those rolexes on IG or anywhere else, i just thank myself that i am not a fan of those ordinary every-where-to-find watches.

I am sure Fred knows he’s not alone on this matter!!
