Any idea why he stopped customising Rolex watches?

Not that I'd give the guy money as he comes across as an absolute buffoon.

Someone obviously didn’t pick this up post lockdown. Tempting…

Didn't think there would be much of an issue getting any precious metal Rolex. Except a green dial Daytona or skydwellers.

JCB talked him into making customs for his company and become the official Zenith customiser. Must be a good portion of money.

I used to rather like Zenith from a design perspective, and obviously their movements were great, but since Biver took over the overall aesthetic has tended towards the gauche. The original El Primero was a gorgeous design, but they now seem to pander to those who deem a tacky exposed balance wheel as somehow being the epitome of watch making
