Based on an original 1930's design, this slim, discreet, 34mm Vacheron Constantin dress watch marries an incredible purity of design with a radical crown placement that gives the watch a seldom seen symmetry.
The 18ct white gold case is complemented by a simple silver guilloche dial and elegant 'leaf' hands.
The broad, crisply finished crown makes the watch much easier to wind than the 1930's original and the sharp Maltese cross insignia is an excellent example of those little details that Vacheron excel at.

Hi Philip Many thanks for the fantastic Rolex Yachtmaster. I must admit I was hesitant in buying a watch over the phone that I had never seen before and furthermore parting with the money before it had arrived. But I had to trust you, and true to your word it arrived within 24hours and in mint condition. Its good to know that there are honest businessmen out there. Hopefully we have established a relationship and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future.

A watch-lover’s place of enchantment Situated in the heart of Cape Town, Philip Zetler Jewellers is well known among collectors of fine timepieces. Owner Philip Zetler shares what sets his outlet apart from others.
When was your retail outlet established? The company has been in existence for the last 80 years. It was previously called Stanley’s Jewellers. In 1987 I purchased it, revamped it and renamed it Philip Zetler Jewellers. I am the sole proprietor/owner and work full-time in the store.
Where is the outlet situated? Located at 54 St George's Mall, it is one of the oldest jewellery businesses in Cape Town. It is in the heart of Cape Town, near the five-star Cape Sun (Holiday Inn) Hotel. The store is famous for its 100-year old, square-faced Smith’s clock affixed to its front, which contributes greatly to its unique character. I believe it still serves as a landmark and rendezvous point for lovers and business people alike. What brands do you stock? We offer pre-owned watches from the world’s finest brands with guarantees of authenticity so that clients have absolute peace of mind. Among some of the premier brands are Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin, Bulova, Breitling, Panerai, Omega and Tag Heuer. We are also official stockists of Seiko, Pulsar, Timex, Casio and Fossil watches.
What kind of products can a consumer expect from your store? Besides our wide range of pre-owned watches, as a manufacturing jeweller, I see myself as handily placed to fulfil the needs of any prospective buyer. Philip Zetler Jewellers offers an extensive stockholding of rings, chains, earrings and antique jewellery, among other pieces of adornment.
What sets you apart from other retail outlets? Our extensive collection of pre-owned wristwatches is displayed in the window. Watch-lovers are a particular niche market and one that I’ve been carefully cultivating for many years. One glance into the window is certainly set to race the pulses of such wristwatch aficionados. Watch-lovers are always on the look-out for new additions to our collections, as for many of our consumers it has become an all-consuming passion.
Do you offer any additional services? Philip Zetler Jewellers offers a selection of services including buying and selling of watches, fine jewellery and Kruger Rands, as well as loose and certified diamonds and tanzanite. We also offer a watch, clock and jewellery repair service.
How do you see the future of retail outlets with the growth in online shopping? I believe that in our industry, many consumers still want to touch and see the actual goods – especially when it comes to jewellery pieces. However, many consumers have converted to the virtual world and therefore I feel that nowadays websites are very important in positioning one’s business. I also have a website (www.philipzetlerjewellers.co.za) so that we can reach consumers outside of Cape Town as well. Adri Viviers firstname.lastname@example.org.FEB2011

WE BUY& SELL ROLEX & ALL PRESTIGIOUS WATCHES
Why & How to Buy Pre-owned Watches ?
We have re-invented the way people buy pre-owned watches by identifying 4 major concerns.
- 1. Is the watch authentic?
- 2. How has the watch been authenticated?
- 3.What condition is the watch in?
- 4.What happens if the watch is faulty?
1. Is the watch authentic?
All our watches are genuine and have been authenticated by our expert team of watchmakers. There are a number of steps we take to ensure this is the case.
We DO buy Pre-Owned Watches from?
- Existing customers wanting to part-exchange or upgrade.
- Established and respected watch dealers.
- Individuals who can satisfy the very high standards of our team of expert watchmakers
We DO NOT buy Pre-Owned Watches from:
- Anyone who cannot provide warranty certificates, proof of identity, proof of purchase or trade references.
- Anyone without the approval of our team of expert watchmakers.
- EBay vendors. Nor will will we buy any watches that have been bought through Ebay.
2.How has the watch been authenticated?
We are affiliated with a team of Watchmakers with over 35 years experience to check every detail of the watches that are purchased. The following checks are made to ensure that counterfeit watches or watches of dubious origin never appear on the website.
- Serial numbers. Lost and stolen databases are checked to confirm the watch history.
- Movements. The movement is inspected and all constituent parts are authenticated.
- Paperwork. All paperwork is checked against the watch serial number.
- Manufacturer checks. We contact manufacturers direct to establish the authenticity.
- Source checks. Watches are not bought without detailed information on the seller.
3.What condition is the watch in?
- We know that people don't want worn or damaged watches. Our pre-owned watches fit into two categories.
- The watch is already in immaculate condition.
- The watch can be returned to immaculate condition.
If our watchmakers can't return the watch to an immaculate condition then we dont buy it. Once the quality and value of pre-owned watches have been witnessed, few will ever buy brand new again.
4.What happens if the watch is faulty?
All pre-owned watches carry a 12 month warranty issued by our dedicated service and repair centre.
During that period we will repair any faults free of charge. All the technicians have worked to team leader or head watchmaker standard at the major watch houses and are trained and equipped to the highest standards. Obviously the time taken to repair a watch will depend on the nature of the fault. Our turnaround time will be significantly less than the standard 5 - 10 weeks of the manufacturers.
Your questions answered.
The savings are great but will my friends know it's pre-owned ?
After a complete refurbishment the pre-owned watches carry no visible signs of wear and tear. To all but the expert eye they will appear to be brand new. You can save thousands of rands on the price of a brand new watch that to most people will look identical. Our watchmakers have all reached team leader or head watchmaker level with the major watch houses, and work to an exceptionally high standard.
Any parts that show any wear are replaced with official certified parts bought from the manufacturer. The movements are kept in perfect working condition and the case and bracelet are polished to such a high standard that all marks and scratches are removed. After all of this you are left with the prescion of a new movement along with the sparkle of a watch that looks as though it has just left the factory.
You have told me never to buy without the manufacturer's original paperwork.
Brand new watches should always be bought with paperwork but the pre-owned market is a different matter. Once the manufacturer's warranty has expired (usually 1 year) the paperwork only serves to show where and when the watch was originally bought. When buying without paperwork you should always ensure the supplier is a trusted source. Our team of watchmakers will authenticate any watch using the serial numbers, a thorough inspection of the case, the movement, and the bracelet. We can establish the age and servicing history of a watch by an assessment of the case numbers, bracelet references and movement.
We can also provide you with an insurance valuation which also acts as a certificate of authenticity, giving you total confidence that the watch is 100% genuine.
BUY WITH CONFIDENCE & SAVE - ALL WATCHES CARRY A ONE YEAR GUARANTEE.

The Luxury of Tme: Makes Interesting Reading by Jackie Cameron
Only the world’s most exceptional watches
increase in value after they leave the showcase.
Jackie Cameron takes a closer look
at investing in these collectables
In international power circles, it has become remarkably ordinary to own an extraordinary timepiece. Russian prime
minister Vladimir Putin famously owns a selection of white-gold Patek Phillipes –among the most desirable items for collectors today. Actor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly a fan of the chunkier, but equally alluring, timepieces made by Audemars Piquet.Expensive watches have proved so popular among China’s wealthy elite that the
country’s new leader Xi Jinping took the unusual step earlier this year of banning them from being given as gifts or displayed at official functions. Fine watches are still being
snapped up at the high-end jewellery boutiques that proliferate in China’s city centres
– the wearers are just becoming more discreet about how they show off their Cartiers,
Vacheron Constantins, Seikos and Omegas.
In South Africa, watches remain a popular accessory. Although we no longer need
these adornments to keep tabs on where we are in the day, with clocks everywhere around
us – from phones and fridges to car dashboards and company foyers – we still spend
huge sums on them. Says Philip Zetler, owner of Philip Zetler Jewellers in St Georges Mall,
Cape Town, ‘There are thousands of people who collect watches. But, when it comes to
the very pricey stuff, few can afford them.’ The jewellery specialist reckons there are only
200 or so luxury-watch collectors in South Africa.
TIMING THE MARKET
There has been a steady trickle of luxury watches coming on to the pre-owned market as
the rand’s value has plummeted against major currencies and the economy has faltered.
‘People are offloading some valuable timepieces to recoup money lost in business or
through conventional investments’, says Zetler. For those who can afford to expand their
collections, this is a good time to buy. Prices in South Africa look attractive compared
to elsewhere. ‘The luxury-watch market has taken a knock recently, but there are people
who are still buying them – and those are the serious collectors.’
‘Analogue mechanical watches and vintage watches are highly collectable. There are
many other types of good watches on the market that people buy, but not as tradeable
collectables,’ says Zetler. (Mechanical watches are those that need to be rewound period-
ically or have self-winding mechanisms.) Digital and electronic quartz-crystal watches and
women’s watches are not taken seriously as investment items. Even women who buy with
an eye on financial return tend to opt for men’s models.
Oresti Mavrodaris of Elegance Jewellers in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, agrees that
business remains strong at the top end of the market. ‘We do well with clients who are
prepared to wait, sometimes more than a year, for the right piece.’ The most exclusive
top-end watches are manufactured in small numbers and – of a run of about 500 –
South Africa is likely to receive only one or two.
These timepieces generally focus on sophisticated mechanical movements showcasing
the watchmaker’s engineering skills (for example, including special mechanical devices
such as tourbillons, which work to counter the effects of gravity for improved time-keeping
accuracy). Selling for anything from R70 000 upwards, a watch like this can easily double
in price within a few months of release to the market.
Different luxury-watch collectables offer different experiences,’ points out Mavrodaris.
‘The Panerai is so much more niche, as a very well-designed sports watch for leisure.’
Meanwhile, Piaget, known for its exquisite designs, boasts that it produces the world’s
thinnest automatic watch.
Jack Visser, a Western Cape watch restorer and collector, divides buyers into two
categories: ‘There is the person who is looking for something nice to wear that will go
well with their new Mercedes-Benz or Ferrari, and then there is the real collector who
chooses vintage wrist- or antique pocket watches.’Vintage watches are attractive if they look like
they’ve been worn and have some unusual
personal touches,such as inscriptions
The fascination for Visser lies in the way these delicate machines work. He describes
older collectable timepieces as ‘little mechanical marvels’, unlike modern quartz watches.
Of his restoration projects, he says, ‘It is a wonderful feeling to see a 200-year-old watch
come back to life in your hands.’ He has built up his collection of old pocket watches
by exploring shops, keeping a close eye on auction inventories and trawling through the
contents of deceased estates. ‘Most I bought in broken condition. But, it is so time-
consuming to repair these that I do not get around to fixing most of them.’
Unlike other collectables, where being in mint condition or refurbished is likely to
enhance returns, vintage watches are attractive if they look like they’ve been worn and
have some unusual personal touches, such as inscriptions. Novelty can be a factor, too.
Visser has a particularly intriguing pocket watch made in the late 1800s by German firm
Ruhla to tie in with Boer War sentiment. ‘The motion work on the dial shows what looks
like Paul Kruger – though I don’t have proof it is supposed to be him – smacking the
bottom of a man who appears to be English, because he is wearing a top hat and pince-
nez and carries a brolly.’ He explains, ‘the moving arm doing the spanking adds interest,
while the historical context could turn a cheap mass-produced piece such as this into a
desirable collector’s item.
Visser doesn’t know how much this unique piece is worth. Like other aficionados, he
scans the internet to get a sense of the value of his items, noting that there are often
large differences in pricing between different countries. ‘All collectors believe they are
making a good investment. Very few are, because your watch is only worth something
when you sell it, and very few sell,’ he says.
Generally, though, expect your luxury watch to drop in value soon after you’ve bought
it. It takes time for a watch to regain and surpass its retail value, unless it is a particularly
unusual specimen. As a rule of thumb, says Mavrodaris, a collectable watch should fetch
at least half of its retail price. Then work on annual increases of 10 to 15%, so you are
back to the position you started at in about five years. The value of the metal the watch
is made of is a consideration too.
Zetler’s advice to the new collector is to look into the history of the timepiece before
you make a purchase, and preferably get an expert to study the face as well as the inner
workings to verify you are not being duped. There are many authentic-looking fakes on
the market across all brands – it’s not just the glass-backed ‘Rolexes’ you should avoid.
If in doubt, go for the rarer varieties of well-known makes, says Zetler. He reveals he
has ‘quite a few’ of the Rolex Daytona range, including a 1970s stainless-steel, vintage
cosmograph, as well as ‘one or two’ classic Rolex Submariner Reds, in his personal
collection. ‘I won’t sell. You can’t find them. They really are like hen’s teeth,’ says the
trader, a firm believer that the best watches will always increase in value over time.

SEIKO ORANGE MONSTER
So why is this watch called the "Monster?" At approximately 42mm in diameter, the watch is quite large. It also has some impressive heft to it, but I find it comfortable. With an arrowhead for an hour hand, and a sword for a minute hand, you know this watch means business. The polished SS bezel has a pattern that makes griping it for rotating easy, but also gives the watch a very "muscular" appearance. The orange dial on the SKX781K gives the watch an almost rebellious presence - like the horological equivalent of Bart Simpson screaming "in your face dude!" This watch definitely has "attitude" - it is a nice departure from my "mainstream" watches in my collection, and another reason I bought it. All these factors combine to create a watch that can nearly be described as imposing. This is a watch that other watches definitely would not want to meet up with in a dark alley.
