How many watches do you have currently "on order"?
I just realized that I'm waiting for four 😱 It sounds a bit crazy for me, but unfortunately, some of them might never arrive (you know what's going on with the market nowadays), but what if I receive the calls? I'd better be ready to pull the trigger 😄 Wh...
You need a new formula.
number of watches [n] number of years waiting list [y1, y2, y3......yn] Crazy factor=n divided by sum of years waiting ..........
I have 5 so 4 sounds about right! :-)
I am actually about to add a sixth to the list (the Gronefeld Remontoire) but the plus point is that I have managed to space them all out so that I do not have to sell any body parts 1. Cartier Crash - December 2019 2. Patek 5212A - end of this year or ea...
By which time, the list price of the 5711 may have doubled!!
Wow, what a plan! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
You have a serious plan ahead to execute, I wish you the best luck! It's hard to assimilate that your AD or Patek has promised you the 3878 in 9 years time... 😱 Enjoy the journey, but I'm sure that you will add other pieces as you progress through your li...
A special arrangment
The 3878J was discontinued more than 20 years ago but a VIP customer had commissioned one two years ago which Patek had agreed to make. This order was cancelled after production of the watch and it found its way to the Patek Salon in London where I first ...
What a story! Thanks for sharing
Never heard anything like that before. I do wish you get and start enjoying the watch earlier. You must love the watch a lot to be so patient.
It is a rare gem and even at 31mm, it fits me well. Thank you for your encouragement! ...
Can't wait to see it.
Three on order
but as you say, I never know if anything will materialize.
4 incoming watches for 1WatchMan? ;-)
Thankfully, I’m pretty much done and the last two years have been culling season for me. Going from 60+ and edging closer and closer to the number 12.
Yeah, sounds kind of weird 🤭
That's a good consolidation effort, I have to learn from you. I don't want to get so far, but at a certain point I might start consolidating. I don't really know, time will tell 😜 Thanks!
Thanks a lot.
I will do that. I am still negotiating the purchase price. So you can guess it‘s not a PP. 😁 Best, Thomas
I have to confess I never have begged for a watch. If a watch I want to buy can’t be delivered within a reasonable time and at a reasonable price I decline with thanks and turn my love to other brands and watches. There are so many of them. ☺️ Best, Thoma...
The worst part is that you have to pay dearly for what you begged...
What a question man !! Interesting
Let’s see ...about 8 pcs and realistically I think I’ll get 5 by the end of the year . Rolexes have been carried forward from last year’s orders and yes Patek as well .
One for me
Two are going out (hopefully tomorrow) and one is on order. Kind regards, Dan
I suggest that...
You either buy a pre-owned 5002 or a new 5010. The 5004 has a missing 9 and that might bother you in the long run.
I’ve got one new watch order, or better put it’s “under construction” at the manufacture Planning is to go to Geneva mid September to collect it and once I have it I will share (many) pictures Only one in this community knows what it is and he has sworn s...
