A collector to the core, our Manager of Merchandising, Nick Marmol, is fascinated with all things antique and vintage. Since joining the Portero team, his keen eye has transfixed on the art of horology.
Over the years he has collected and traded numerous timepieces from Antique Pocket watches to Retro Led watches though always desiring a classic, vintage Rolex…
The year was 1966, a year all English football fans, including our very own Englishman, recall as the last time England won the World Cup. Was it fate, destiny, or just pure coincidence? Whichever you believe; when this classic 1966 Rolex entered the Portero premises, temptation took hold.
“I personally like to buy vintage watches which hold some historical significance – like a birth year or another important year in your life,” says Nick.
With its original papers, strap, matching registration marks, its sole owner, and of course, its symbolic year, Nick finally found his Rolex match.
Whether England wins the 2014 World Cup, it seems as though this Rolex will remain in Nick’s collection for years to come!
