Very nice collection. I saw a post on Hodinkee where you mentioned your collection, it's good to see a picture. I could end my quest for more watches with this collection. Rotate and wear in good healthy, especially during these times. V/r, SOG

Patek Philippe: The Price is right

The price for the platinum deployant clasp with the buckle trade-in is about right. Everything with a Patek is expensive. Ask your A.D. how much would a replacement spring bar for your watch strap would cost and you would know exactly what I mean. Good luck again, SOG

Patek Philippe: Maintenance Costs

I agree. Servicing or maintenance cost on a PP is extremely high. I purchased a 5227G, a few years back. The money I spent on straps ($500.00 x2), and insurance were a complete waste. When I asked about the cost for regular servicing and a new spring bar, I knew it was time to sell my PP. Yes, the c

Rolex: Not for the Sub, because that model did not offer the Oysterflex, however;

Yes, if you own a Rolex model that comes with the Oysterflex, and you order a replacement for it for the actual price. You can order it through a grey dealer, be prepared to pay a hefty price for it. Probably not worth it, there are after market rubber strap companies that make these straps specific
