Antoine’s Preziuso’s Rolex
One of the most amazing aspects of the #dubaiwatchweek
is that you get the opportunity to meet some horological living legends. This year’s edition has been graced by the presence of people such as Mr Philippe Dufour, Mr Max Busser or in the case of today’s post, Mr Antoine Preziuso and his son Florian.
Antoine - yes, we are now on first name basis - took the time to catch up over a cup of coffee and talk about watches when somehow he started talking about his father’s Rolex.
Mr Preziuso’s dad was working for a case-maker who was supplying Rolex. He owned this Rolex Oyster date that needed servicing. As his son Antoine was an up and coming watchmaker, father asked son to service the watch. Antoine took it a slight notch further: he created - from scratch - a perpetual calendar movement, to fit exactly in the 36mm case of his watch and delivered this amazing version of the Oyster Perpetual Date. As Antoine said « I made it truly perpetual”.
