Hopefully I'm not posting in the wrong thread... all the Pateks and Rolexs are intimidating.

 

Took the day off from work so didn't get out much. Wore my IWC Mark XVI today...

 

Fun fact: None of my watches ever have the correct date because I'm too lazy to set them.

 

 

 

 

I was talking to someone earlier in the month about their IWC Perpetual and I THINK he mentioned it was accurate for ~400 years.

Nice watch. Thought about getting one of these for a while now but I already have multiple mil-style watches. Will have to liquidate more of them first. 

 

We may need to start a Middle Class Watch Porn thread. 

 

As for your date laziness - watchwinders were made for folks like you.

Srs question, we are looking to sell this. As we have never had this particular model before, anyone have any idea what we should hold out for, for it, on the pre owned market?

Very nice, unfortunately I'm not sure what they are going for on the pre-owned market.

 

However one day I wouldn't mind getting aa SS version of this one day.

Nice watch, wrong metal.  It definitely, looks much better in steel.  When new, in gold they had a pretty steep price tag, but VC's from the early 2000's were heavily discounted, and hopefully you guys didn't pay a lot for this one.  That bracelet design is also known for links getting "locked up" or stuck.  The few auction results I saw were several years old for an all gold NON-chrongraph version for suggested estimates of $8,000 to $11,000...with actual sales prices being $8,280, $10,580 including the buyers premium, and then the one gold CHRONGRAPH version had estimates of $10,000-12,000 and actually sold for $11,500 including the buyers premium.   Again results are several years old, but most people favor this watch in all steel, so in gold it might be a tough sale.

I have a couple of watches. The amount I would spend on a nice watch winder... I'd rather just buy another watch.

 

Tudor Chronograph for today.

thanks! we paid less than the scrap value, so we are fine either way. we have an offer over 20K, just wondering if we could get more, i guess we should take the offer. smile.gif

I've bought MANY watches for "less than scrap gold value" but its always old geneve watches that we literally scrap and melt down. Never been offered one like this - actually, we bought a 18kt TT Ladies Yachtmaster for $800, mom still wears it today.

Amazed someone would sell that watch for scrap gold price, wow, you better jump on any offer over $10k considering you paid maybe a 20% of that!

I'm a VC fan (I own 2 Vacherons), but personally I think its a rather undesirable version of the Overseas.  So if you have an offer of better than 20K,  I would be afraid not to take the offer.  If your buyer dies, you guys might never see an offer like that again and you could be sitting on it for a very long time!
