The superb inspiration of our CP 2 15th WPS Anniversary. 



Absolutely stunning!!! Thanks for continuing the torture!😜

Thanks, Vallura.

Yes, an outstanding watch. I'm thrilled to have the WPS 15th anniversary piece.

Indeed, my friend. It is the next best thing, after the Cairelli!

It's a dream watch... But a nightmare to buy!

Not an easy game, indeed.

Why is it hard to find a well preserved, in original condition, highly desirable, rare vintage watch?

 By: BigFatPauli : January 15th, 2022-14:32
Try it, then report back smile

Well ,here as often, buy the seller is THE rule.

 By: amanico : January 15th, 2022-15:53

Sure. But a rare watch, is still a rare watch. And even with a good seller, mistakes are made.

 By: BigFatPauli : January 15th, 2022-17:29

Yes, true, but with some serious homework, it is not too tough to fall on a good one.

 By: amanico : January 15th, 2022-17:43

BigFatPauli, it is not such a big thing - all information available about this watch - there are much more vintage watches, that are more difficult to buy

 By: only5402 : January 15th, 2022-16:48
google for example "100 percent passion zenith cairelli" and you find all information - than there are furthermore 2 different dust covers
and 2 different engravings on the movement for the "DP" what is important to know - than you can start your hunt

any vintage watch to buy needs needs research and a lot of work



True, try, for example, the vintage Fifty Fathoms. ;)

 By: amanico : January 15th, 2022-16:57

Of course there are harder watches, with more specificity. I never said this was the HARDEST watch to find.

 By: BigFatPauli : January 15th, 2022-17:31
But it's not the easiest, by any stretch, either. Even armed with all the knowledge in the world, to actually FIND the right example for me, tends to very difficult and a case of luck. I'm glad you seem to have easy access to vintage watches in such condition. I, like most, do not have such a connection.

i never had easy (!) acces with vintage watches and don't wrote ore explaned this! - every vintage watch was hard research and work for me, as i wrote

intersting to observe the market situation: many years continuous development, than steep climb by pushing, than falling down to reality or less - regards Stephan

 By: only5402 : January 15th, 2022-13:38

Which is great news for those, like me, who are hunting it. ;)

 By: amanico : January 15th, 2022-15:53

8000 Euro is no problem and some time before ... - i think you know this - regards Stephan

 By: only5402 : January 15th, 2022-16:50

I know this too well. ;)

Yep, always thrilling to fall on such a piece.
