Patek Philippe: 90% sure the empty box will outperform yellow gold watch

It makes perfect sense to buy the box if you already have the watch and you're looking to sell. Quick look at Chrono24 suggests a premium of about 20,000 USD for the box. Having the box will also increase the number of offers made on the watch, so it reduces your risk as a seller, even if the box is

Audemars Piguet: Emotional factor?

With COVID-19 everyone’s day to day living expenses are way down, so there are people who now have extra money on hand and it is easy to get carried away when you want to win something at a prestigious auction. Phillips certainly carries some prestige in today’s watch world, right?

Independents: Certainly a stunning watch

I won’t rehash the resale issues. Prefer the dial of this watch to the Journe Resonance. However, my knowledge of resonance movements is insufficient to objectively consider the merits of Armin Strom’s clutch spring vs. Journe’s spring-free approach. The technical merit would be the deciding factor

Horological Meandering: I’ve always appreciated the Navitimer collection

For now, there Navitimers in my collection, my only Breitling is from the Chronomat family. These black and white dialed watches are separated by 10 years in vintage and they represent a a big part of my journey through this hobby. One close to the beginning, one close to the present. The Breitling

Audemars Piguet: Yes, but AP will find their way soon

The Re-Master 01 is a step in the right direction. The price might be high, but most people find the design appealing, so the chunkiness is actually charming. Even if the Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore continue to account for 85% of sales, it is important to have other successful designs in the co

Horological Meandering: All stunning examples

All of these watches strike a very nice balance between sporty and dressy, as the cases don't have the fussy flourishes that you'll find on, for example, a modern Patek 5172G. I believe the market will be ready for a 13ZN revival, post COVID, but Longines has to make enough of them so they can be ac

Independents: Congratulations

Beautiful watch and extra points for being reasonably thin. Still think Arnold & Son is overlooked, all of their complications feel fresh.

Horological Meandering: This reissue is ace

If this reissue had a 30CH or 13ZN with shock protection, it would sell at least 100 pcs at $15,000 or $20,000 . There’s very little in the way of classic fine watchmaking (chronographs) at this price point today. Montblanc now starts at $30,000. Longines is rebuilding the brand by continuing to rem

A. Lange & Söhne: Lange is big on the equilateral triangles.

Educated guess that it is indeed a Lange 1 variation, but no information provided on the hands themselves. So I'll guess a 12HR second timezone hand with a day-night indicator, similar in execution to the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Hometime.

Food & Wine: Looks like an interesting dram is ahead

I’m living in Canada as well, always curious to try out a SMWS membership, but it sounds like they are warning off Ontarians.
