Bert´s Watch (and mine...)



Here it is, Bert´s legendary watch, from the back sleeve of his album "Kaempfert '76". And mine, of course... A Rolex "Air King". The one with the most beautiful dial. I wear this one with pride to special occasions, because it honors me that Bert and me not only have the same taste in music, but in wristwatches as well. I´m sure that if I had known him personnally, we would have gone fishing while listening to great music and looking at our beautiful wristwatches. But not for the time, just for the beauty of our little gems...

i'm totally agree with you!. Super-good taste on vintage wrist-watches. by the way, if you are a collector of these gems, you can take a look at a website in Spain (Majorca island)

Kaempferts the man!
Remember.....
No Kaempfert no Beatles.
HE was the man who signed them to Polydor and produced "Ain't She Sweet" along with the Tony Sheridan sides. If that record never came out, they would have been just another Liverpool band. Plus Kaempfert's music is cool to boot.
