F.P. Journe: I got mine in 2014...

...but I really wanted the Chrono Souverain, but it was out of my price range. I liked the CB, but it just didn’t speak to me, and deep down I knew it was a compromise for me, so I sold it after less than a year. I really try not to have money related regrets when it comes to watches, but I’ll admit

IWC: Guess I’m the dissenting voice...

...but my favorite is the 5009. I’ve owned 3 Big Pilots over the years. It really holds a special place in my heart, but I owned them at a time that I was buying and selling a lot because I wanted to experience as many watches as possible, and they were so easy to buy and sell at a fairly stable pri

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Mothers Day Gift Finally Arrived!!

I’m a long time collector, and over the years have owned a lot of different watches. My wife has occasionally shown interest in it, and doesn’t mind me spending money on watches within reason (the day I bought my Lange 1815 U/D was a little tense, so I think that’s about the limit for me!), but fund

A. Lange & Söhne: Sacrilege!!

Not a fan, but always good to change it up. Or maybe I’m just jealous as I really really want a Lange 1!

A. Lange & Söhne: I agree, it’s nice when they go up if it allows me to buy into something higher end...

...but that’s as far as an ‘investment’ watches are for me. Every penny I’ve ever made on a watch has just gone back into other watches, and in some cases has enabled me to afford watches I couldn’t otherwise afford or be justified in spending. E.g I have a rose gold Lange because 10 years before I

Automotive: Nice!!

My first car was a 1.4 Renault Clio RT 1995 model! I was 17, so 20 years ago now. Obviously not cool or sporty, but I loved it!

Horological Meandering: Looks similar to my ‘Postala’.

I don’t know much about it, except that it loses a few minutes a day but isn’t worth the service cost, but still brings a smile on the occasional day I wear it.

Patek Philippe: Congrats!!

I tried one on at an AD last year, and one of the things I really loved about it is the feeling of heft on the wrist. It’s not a large watch, but you really feel it. I ended up going with an 1815 Up/Down in the end, but if I ever decide to let it go, the 5196 is definitely what I’ll replace it with.

Horological Meandering: If someone is that desperate to scream ‘look at how rich I am!!’ wouldn’t it be easier to just print their net work and glue it to their forehead? Or maybe have it printed on their business card?

This might be the worst thing I have ever seen. Can you imagine the kind of person that would buy something like this? The company is calls ‘Caviar’ ffs. It’s ghastly.
