Just to backtrack a bit re refinishing: general consensus is that watches shouldn't be refinished much, if at all, for resale value and natural patina/wear, etc (esp. sport watches). But I'm curious if much stainless steel has to me removed and is lost if it's only light refinishing, i.e. to remove superficial hairlines that can only be seen and not really felt.
Thanks for the thoughtful reply, Dino.Also, ceci n'est PAS UNE ROLEX: [[SPOILER]] And I believe it's been a while (NSFW): [[SPOILER]] ^ NOT FAKE!
@Dino944 : Do you think something like the Peter Roberts Grand Complication 5 will appreciate much?http://www.peterrobertswatches.com/
In short: must buy Rolex NAOW!
Ima have to read that.Here's another take on the subject: http://www.ablogtowatch.com/rolex-prices-past-60-years-revealing-analysis/
I'd like to get a previous gen 14060M Sub and Midnight Black Bay. I don't think of the BB as a Sub though, and I don't think getting either first would make me want the other one less...Def. no budget for both anytime soon. BB is much cheaper so can be had sooner, but logic would have me save up for the 14060M first since it's discontinued and the longer I wait, the harder it'll be to find one BNIB.
Weird how it looks huge in pics, whereas irl I can easily see 5mm of my wrist above and below the lugs.

@Keith T : So I thought about getting your boss fired... And this might work: [[SPOILER]] Or you could take Culver's advice and not wear the JA to work.
If your boss doesn't own the company, have you considered conspiring to get him fired so that you may be the only one wearing the Jules Audemars Extra-Thin? I mean no TWAT Master worth his title should let another dood get in the way of him wearing a watch he really, really, REALLY wants.I like the Patrimony Traditionelle Small Seconds the most, but it does seem a bit cold somehow. Maybe bc I think it looks too perfect?
