Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 5402 / Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712.

This was the time I had both of them, before I let the Patek 5712 go to fund my Patek 5070G. Ok, it would have been better to compare the 5402 with a 5711... But still, you get the idea... Best, Nicolas

i really love the 5980R

it is really wearable, maybe more so than the 1R, because of the leather bracelet. and the dial is extra special.

Laurent Ferrier Tourbillon Grand Sport On The Wrist review.

I will write one later. The biggest achievement about this piece is that it looks very Laurent Ferrier despite the new context. I read a lot of comments about it, the Nautilus inspiration and so on. I don't agree. It features the Galet Square shape. And i

Laurent Ferrier Tourbillon Grand Sport On The Wrist review.

Announced a few weeks ago, I was impatient to discover this new opus from Laurent Ferrier. Could you imagine that one day, Laurent Ferrier could release such a watch? Why not, after all? At first sight, this Tourbillon Grand sport disorients the Laurent F

ìs it still bad to flip asap in this crazy market ?

I keep asking myself similar questions. I also agree that owning a piece for 13 years shouldn’t be called flipping. If you did trade it for something else, make sure you love the new piece as much. After all, owning it for 13 years means a lot. Recently I

I’m not on any ADs list really. Once an AD I know gave me a great deal on something that I could have flipped, but I wasn’t interested in the watch so I passed. I buy to wear them. But, I flipped my Nautilus chrono. There I said it. But I wore it for 2-3

To make a quick example, because of ethical reasons I would NOT buy a 5711 at retail today *in order to* sell it and fund a $60k watch tomorrow (or even worse, to just cash the $60k). But I would have no moral beef in the event I bought the same 5711 toda

so the point is not so much whether one should flip one's watches but how long after buying it would flipping it be 'acceptable'. I posed this question to a senior employee of Patek Philippe who I had lunch with last week and he mentioned 3 to 5 years whi

I think your 5070 example is far from a case of flipping. Over time everything has become more expensive and replacement cost has inflated. So if you sell you would likely spend equal or higher amount to replace it with something equivalent to you. Now fo
