Whether it's flashy or unassuming, a man's watch can tell you a lot. Here, we bring you a glimpse of horological inspiration from a top tastemaker. In this edition: a vintage-fashion connoisseur's birthday gift.
The Subject: Chris Olberding, director of Gitman Vintage
The Watch: 2012 Rolex Oyseter Perpetual, Blue Face
The Details: "I wanted the simplicity of an Explorer, but I also love the 'less is more' look of the Oyster Perpetual without date display. Since I'm a fan of all things blue, when this relatively uncommon model appeared, it was an excellent and long-awaited birthday gift."
