Rolex: Simple Strategy

Increase demand by throttling supply. Dealers can "package" other pieces that aren't as easy to sell whether it be jewelry or other watch brands to people who are dying to get that Rolex (or Patek). Hermes does the same thing, and I think it's despicable. Put more gently, it's not what a luxury buyi

Patek Philippe: Stock still coming?

I heard stock was allocated to dealers and they are now gone. Any insight?

Patek Philippe: Allocation or not?

FabR says it's not an "allocation piece". Saz implies it is. I couldn't get one. I have some friends who are major collectors who didn't either (different dealers). For what it's worth, Sylvester Stallone and Mark Wahlberg both got the diamond green Nautilus. My guess: each dealer got very few to di

Patek Philippe: Bracelet!

I have this watch and love it. I'm in the minority, because I've never wished to wear it with a strap. I really like the bracelet! Different strokes for different folks. I believe this was an under appreciated watch in the catalog that became more popular once it exited.

Patek Philippe: 5004A

So they continue to make the steel even though the 5004A was extremely limited? Anyway, my AD in the U.S. said no steel deployant was available.

Patek Philippe: Steel

My understanding is that Patek does not have a steel deployant clasp and this steel is a third party.

That was awhile ago, and since then it seems Patek has become the Hermes of the watch industry. OK…. I have bought many Pateks since, but the ga

Patek Philippe: Winner

Gorgeous watch. Each configuration of the 5270 is superb in its own way.

Patek Philippe: Pushers

Horo_Traveler, I could not agree more. The pushers are very rough compared with my 5170 and 5270. But, it's a great looking watch (5960/1A) and I enjoy wearing it (on its original bracelet; never was moved to use a strap instead as many other forum participants did).

Patek Philippe: Great choice!

I bought the 3710 at around the same time. I saw something in it that I liked. Suffice it to say, we were in the minority in the early 2000s as I got a substantial discount on it back then. Been wearing it ever since, and history has judged our original decisions favorably!
