Often vintage watches reveal some amazing stories; this is part of their charm over brand new pieces. Whether it is a small engraving on the caseback, or an additional name on the dial, or even some surviving accessories, there are always some great discoveries to be made, often decades after the watch was first loved. And this could not be better illustrated, than by this double-signed Rolex “Bombay”. Not only does it offer a unique insight into the history of beer in Venezuela, but it also hearkens back to a time where retailers proudly featured their names on the dial – in this case the famed Venezuelan store Serpico y Laino.
