We were broke, but we had more fun.. LOLtrue...this whole being an adult thing is not all its cracked up to be. kinda miss the days of having no job and sleeping on RDs couch all the time.
I was just talking to a local jewelry store owner about watches. He wants to advertise an upper end brand on here to see if it would be applicable to the members.
I personally don't wear a watch (too often), I do own a couple.
Honestly I use my phone for the time.. LOL If I'm looking for jewelry I'll get another necklace.
Which Patek do you have? I just insured a guy that had a Patek and a Audemars on his policy. He didn't even know which models they were, just that they were expensive hahaTo me if you are only ever going to own one high end mechanical the Rolex submariner is the clear choice.
Buy it- wear it for a decade or decades - sell it for what you bought it for or more. Its probably one of the safest places to put 6-7 grand.
I dont like the cyclops or date versions but prefer the straight up no date SS version - its the honey badger of watches.
Thin, classy and durable as hell. About the only thing more durable is an anvil.
The Rolex date watches are notably thicker, and the cyclops catches the edge of my cuffs all the time when I wear dress shorts, and the non date version is tiny (hence the cyclops) On other watches use a twin wheel date system to make the date more visible without a cyclops.
I dont go for gold or two toned gold because on me that shit looks like a pimp.
I prefer my gold in the form of coins or bullion and I stick to SS when possible with watches.
Gold scratches really easy compared to SS which gets pretty scratched up itself if you wear the thing year in and year out.
The single color bezels are ok, I prefer straight up black as it makes the watch more versatile- but the two tone coke bottle bezel looks like shit like a puerto rican spray painted his name on a check and bought a watch.
Rolex basically says you have some money, but aren't very interesting. Which is why one is enough for me in the collection - I focus on what is to me more interesting stuff.
I really like my Rolex, but I love my Jaeger LeCoultres. My Patek- boring as hell, but worth a lot of dough because of the name.
I have a basic hobnail Calatrava I scored off a broker that owned me money.Which Patek do you have? I just insured a guy that had a Patek and a Audemars on his policy. He didn't even know which models they were, just that they were expensive haha
Only one in my pics that’s mine is the breitling. LolDamn you guys have some nice shit!! I'm in the wrong business!
Which movement is the breitling using?Only one in my pics that’s mine is the breitling. Lol
One of my customers is a watch crackhead. Those are just the tip of the iceberg of what he has. We traded some work for a watch. I wanted the green Rolex anniversary edition because it stands out and no mistaking what it is. And the value will be going up when they discontinue soon. He didn’t have at that time. So opted for the breitling with 3 different bands. 3 weeks after he got the green one and was like hey wanna work another “deal” (I pouted for a week, now on the waiting list )
He had that sold for over retail the week after he picked it up. Waiting list so long they’re unobtanium for the normal population
And I agree w UD Rolex for best all around watch that will not be money thrown away, and also no gold unless your mid 70s plus, lol
