Hi watchuseek members,

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone to get paid to handle and talk about rare, highly sought after vintage Rolex watches and other high-end luxury watches on a regular basis.

We have access to a comprehensive collection of rare vintage Rolex watches, as well as other high end luxury brands such as Cartier, Patek Phillipe and Audemars Piguet and would like to hire someone to help us research, write descriptions and possibly photograph them as well.

We're looking for someone with a fiery passion for watches – how they work, how they’re made, how they’re designed - particularly Rolex, who has creative writing skills and enjoys researching the history of luxury timepieces and can describe them in an interesting and engaging way.

Macro-Photography and Photoshop skills are also a plus but not necessary. This can lead to a full time position.

Here is the kind of writing sample we are looking for:
Here is a beautiful looking and very collectable reference 6538 vintage Rolex Submariner. This is the model known as the “Big Crown” for its oversized winding crown and no crown guards. The dial and hands on this watch have a mellowed patina that is outstanding and very beautiful.

Original case is stainless steel with dimensions of 38mm diameter by 16mm thick, along with domed acrylic crystal, screw down big crown (operating great) and smoothly turning bezel. Case is in mint to mint plus condition with fat and even lugs.

Serial number of this watch is 307XXX dating production to 1957. Inside of case back is stamped 6538 and III.1957 showing that the watch left the factory in the third quarter of 1957.

Original movement is the automatic winding Rolex Caliber 1030 with 25 jewels and adjusted for five positions and temperature. Movement is clean and in excellent condition and is completely free of any corrosion or breakdown of any kind.

The dial features the two most desirable features of period Submariner dials: the rail track minutes chapter and gilt print. This is an original Rolex service dial and the luminous on the dial and hands and the gilt printing have all taken on the same rich and mellow gold color to beautiful effect. The dial is in mint plus, perfect condition.

If you are interested, please reply via this thread or private message with why you think you would be a good fit for the position. Local candidates only (we're based in downtown Los Angeles, CA).
