Men's watch at the $5K mark? - Page 11

post #151 of 163

anyone see the Seiko Astron GPS watch in person?  I like the GPS feature and price point, but at 47mm its seems a bit huge.

Stainless Steel; If I bought @ 5K 10yrs, your saying I'll get 10k or more? Your not talking with a collector here, that I would have to see with my own eyes! Maybe your talking vintage/pre-owned, ok, maybe! Have you been following market trends and such? Do you believe income has risen  enough to support someone justifying a 5K watch? And last what is an acceptable profit margin for you gents? 1 buck over what you paid, 30%, or if your like me 300%, now that's real profit and something to be hoarded!


I have done very well this way as well. We joke around the office that they are money market on your wrist.

and if you were considering an Omega De Ville or the like, 30-40% off is where I START.

Why would you even think of spending so much money on a watch that comes from the best-mall brand and especially on this particular model?

 

The sole fact that you need to save money to buy this atrocity tells me that you either 1) work for Omega and are trying to promote this item here or 2) have very little knowledge about how watches are priced, sold, and bought.

 

I am sorry for being rough, but I really want you keep your money and save it for something that is actually worth it. 

 

Speaking of saving, if you need to pro-actively put money aside for watch, that watch better be a Patek or a Lange or something else that will say that, at the very least, you know what you've spent your money on.

 

And if you really, really want this Omega, please wait.  I am sure you'll see plenty of these models available at steep discounts.

 

P.S.: I just saw your blog. It appears that this watch is indeed for you, so please buy it at the full MSRP and forget everything I've stated earlier.


Cut him a little slack, just a kid. At least he is trying and he is not spending his money on many of the destructive things of our collective youth. Ye who never bought an Armani suit cast the first stone.......

Lauren at Inventory Adjustors, Phoenix AZ, 602-278-5966, please tell her Robert sent you. They are one of the largest wholesale pre-owned dealers for 2nd tier (Tag, Movado, Omega, etc.)  in the US. Typically you can expect 50% off list for used no box or papers. Just don't call her and ask for a Daytona or a Patek please.

Then you wouldn't really be making too much! But if that's ok with you, I cant really disagree!

 

Most know I am anti-watch bug! In my humble opinion; a fella only needs a few watches! I wouldn't be sitting on 17 like I was, thinking I'm gonna cash in big in 10 yrs. (2-long)! You may be kicked off the planet by that time! Then you gonna leave your wife or your kids "watches," why? It would make more since to keep a few and dump the rest, take the cash and put it into a trust or money market like you wrote! Because we, maybe some of us know when people bring in their loved ones collectables to a dealer or pawn broker; they get what they get and are happy they got something out of it, pennys on the dollar!

The Omega is nice! You can pick up a decent Mont Blanc for that price too.

You can try Cartier, Breitling, BVLGARI, Longines and TAG Heuer watches. Some models of Rolex and Omega are also available for around 5000$ range.

You are right. Retailer rates are usually overpriced. Why don't you check out some online options, especially the price comparison lists. This will help you the find the actual price.
