Well, more than Omegas, we got to see history..Pateks, jLCs, Langes.
In conclusion, we need to have much more of these events at retail outlets, both new and used.
Especially if the events are held by collectors and not funded by the brands. It has much more credibility when it reflects how popular the brand really is, as a watch. Not as an investment, or a status symbol.
I doubt if we will get some of the popular, or seemingly popular brands, to have collector driven events like this Omega one..on a scale as large as this! Too many of the owners are reluctant to share with "lesser" folk who cannot afford what they wear on their wrists. I get tired of seeing and hearing of the same "enthusiasts" who will only be seen or attend posh dinner affairs, free of charge, but will NEVER be found at these gatherings..NEVER..not ONCE.
I suppose Omega is one of the brands that can bring in more folks who want to participate in a hobby, it is affordable, can be found used at reasonable prices, it has many pieces of relevant educational and historical appeal..at affordable prices ( so far).
Thanks to Kong! And Heirloom for being generous!
