      BLOWN AWAY!!



      DUDE!! It was only earlier this year we were talking about how rad it would be to do a red depth , etc on a dial and then here we are, nearing the end of the year and the dial makers are doing 3 extra colors and it looks fantastic! These dial makers are another level!! I have studied the 6542 for a while now and I have never seen a Serpico Y Laino 6542 !! The time line would line up and it would be plausible. I would love to see a gen example.

      This NEXT LEVEL !!!

      Just an awesome build!

          Serpico Y Laino was a jewellery store that was in operation from 1925 to 1966 in Caracas, Venezuea, run by 2 Italian immigtrants, Vicente Laino and Leopoldo Serpico.






          During a trip to Switzerland in the early 1930s, and they managed to negotiate exclusive distribution rights in Venezuela for a - at the time - small watch manufacturer called Rolex.






          They also later became the sole distributor for another luxury watch manufacturer - Patek Philippe.






          Venezuela was a wealthy country at the time, and Serlico y Laino was the leading watch retailer in Caracas until its closure in 1966, after forty years of activity.






          Many of the watches that they sold bore the "Serpico y Laino" line on the dial, and some had an "S&L" engraving on the back.






          Whilst the Serpico Y Laino dealer stamped dials are similar in nature to the Tiffany & Co ones, Serpico Y Laino was a much smaller company than Tiffany and stopped production fairly early, meaning the Serpico Y Laino dials are rarer than Tiffany dials.






          Having a Serpico Y Laino co-branded dial generally adds about three-times the value of the standard version to a given watch. . .


          Thanks for looking !
          Another Exceptional piece mate. Thanks for sharing and the Info :-) Love how you have 4 different colours on the dial. Those guys in Nam are really doing an awesome job!

                      Interesting, I haven't seen anything like this from the Chinese factories so far.

                              It felt disrespectful to tripdog to talk about a factory watch in this thread that was made to showcase a true custom build. So I created a new one and *tried* to answer the questions here https://forum.replica-watch.info/for...-by-ts-station

                              Kids! When commenting on views of others, consider this! From Snow White's perspective the old peddler woman was totally legit. She gave her an apple and told her to make a wish. Next thing she knows, the Prince is there to take her "away" and she is surrounded by her friends rejoicing
