Well, I don't recommend this as a business. Yes, I made a few dollars on some of my watches, but the motivation always was fickleness, not profits. A lot of people return from Las Vegas and say they "broke even." And you hear some heavy traders on WUS say something similar. Translation: They lost their derrières. ;-) The flippers who do reasonably well buy only used watches, so the depreciation hit is minimized. But it's still a crapshoot. :think:Those are some serious heavy hitters you flipped! I always wondered at what point watch flipping goes from a way to get new watches faster, to a side gig run more as a business. I see plenty of sellers here and elsewhere that have a large number of high end pieces for sale at any given time.
That is terrible that they would keep such a perk from you! Perhaps it was just for flight attendants ... or female FAs? :think:I have been Delta flight crew for 22 years and have no idea what you are talking about getting a Rolex at a deeply discounted price. I need more information on this!!!
You get no argument from me. I wear my SMPc probably three-fourths of the time, and mostly the DJ the rest of the time (although it might be the AT or the Doxa or something even further back in the box). I've worn Omegas for more than 50 years, and have been a SMP fan for half of that. Despite owning five or six Subs over the years, my current SMPc is my all-time favorite.I got turned on to Omega. Feel free to flame me if you wish, but of the two Omegas I've recently bought (AT 41 and PO 43.5), I honestly wish I'd gone the Omega route first, rather than chasing the Rolex hype.… Omega is, IMO, pound-for-pound, by today's technological standards, the better watch. Again, flame on.
