Stylish Rolex customiser New York-based Tempus Machina has released its second piece, the 809H – a follow up to its “Bond” watch, the 216A. This model references another much-loved Rolex classic, the 1960s pointed crown guard 5512 Submariner. Merging the vintage styling with the modern Submariner, the 809H boasts a gilt dial featuring the classic 3-6-9 numerals, while an added touch sees the lugs being slimmed down ever so slightly, which Brogue approves of wholeheartedly. This subtle statement watch will be available in a limited run of 30 pieces.
