EDITED : What is your ideal watch collection? Could be 1.. could be 3.. could be 5... I'll start with mine...
Some thoughts : a watch collection is fluid.... these are the four I've been dreaming about and researching for a while... but who knows... maybe when I have them in my wrist my tastes...
I have these 6 watches. Basically my question is: Should I sell them to get one nice one?
Pros: Funds, reduction of amount.
Cons: Loosing variety of watches that you liked enough to buy and wear (sometimes).
The watch im eyeing is a Rolex Sub 16610.
what do you guys think?
I had a transformative experience in my watch journey, where one chapter concretely ends and another begins. Essentially, I bought a goal watch - a Halios Fairwind - and sold it after 2-3 months of ownership. Yet it was a wholly positive experience.
Halios has been my favourite...
First off I'd like for this thread to be a fun thread... so please keep it light hearted. Please don't flame people for posting unobtainable watches be it financial or otherwise. Please post pictures (lets try not to do them in ultra high def as loading is a pain sometimes).
The goal is to...
I'm selling my incredibly rare and amazingly gorgeous Orient Mecha-Trenics. It took me years to find it, and I've only ever seen 1 white dial for sale since, so I'd guess that maybe 2 come up for sale per decade or so.
Originally sold only in Japan, they came out around 2004...
Have you ever followed an auction for a week and then forgot to snipe it at the last moment? Have you pined for your grail only to see it sell out and skyrocket in value due to scarcity? I want to hear your F71 watch enthusiast fish stories! Tell me a tale of the one that got away!
After buying and selling many, many watches, I've realized my absolute favourite types of watches. Anything within these categories, I will be super interested in:
1.) A thick round case, classically designed GMT world timer with an exibition caseback and onion crown and complicated looking...
Well yes this I consider a catch and release. Unfortanately too large for the wrist, and looking to roll this to the next grail!
It is absolutely stunning and quite rare. This is an Omega Boutique piece. The watch gets its nickname from the aventurine star dust dial. It is powered by the hand...
Just Landed, Its been a grail of mine for about a year now. Finally pulled the trigger and I am over the moon with it. 44mm but doesn't wear that large.I am very happy this isn't another special edition speedmaster. What do you think about it?
SOLD WITHIN MINUTES! Thank you buyer and thank you WUS!
Selling my beloved MKII Nassau Red Triangle No Date - $1,000 Firm. Absolutely heartbreaking to sell her...
You will receive the watch, original bracelet with clean end links, and a heavy engineering bracelet with extra links on sturdy...
My small collection, variations to the Speedmaster theme: a Pre-Pro, a Grail and a Mark 40.
The grail and Mark 40 are all original. The pre-pro (a 2998-4, aka Wally-Schirra) has a original radium dial, but replacement hands (slightly incorrect chrono seconds hand). All have unpolished lugs (as...
Well, I often see these grail postings but never thought I'd be posting one.
Since I started looking at watches more carefully a decade ago I set myself a €1000 limit for any given watch and listed any above that as grails.
But I had recently decided that I wanted to switch from a few watches...
I know this question has been asked before but I really want to know and I'll compile some graphs if there are enough and consistent answers. After going through some four dozen watches, I ended up with an Apple Watch for a few months. While it was great I came back to mechanical watches pretty...
FS: Seiko Marine Master MM300 SBDX001
Does this watch really need much of an introduction? I s'pose I'd better, just in case you've been living in a cave… and not the spelunking type!
This is Seiko's answer to the Swiss manufacturer's dive watches. The Rolex Submariner, the Omega Planet...
Ultra-Rare Black Shadow
Black Shadows were never sold to the public. They were made for specific clients, or employees of Panerai. The only way to tell how rare this watch is, is to look at the tag and notice the "C" in PAMC183.
