+1. I understand that watchmakers have raised prices because they can, particularly due to demand from China and the Middle East, but it's still depressing to see just how ludicrous prices for some watches have become over the past decade.

^ Superb, B. I wish I could take watch (or any kind of) photos like that.

Thanks TheWraith, I just grabbed that shot with a cheapo point-and-shoot. They're great for macro pics if you don't want to go for the whole pro set-up.

Hey all,

 

I recently started following this thread, and thought I'd contribute by sharing some pictures of my current watches: a '72 speedmaster, a Port Chrono and a Doxa.

Ok, on the positive side: The link can be easily replaced at a nominal cost. smile.gif

Not even remotely necessary.

uhm nominal in the everyday context or nominal with reference to the cost of the watch??
post #39988 of 48312
I'm not even sure that link is actually damaged. It might be lint, or it might just be the magnification of the close-up, because I just looked at the watch on my wrist and I can't see a damn thing. But I'm glad this is what people are taking out of the picture.

The latter.

Price have become ridiculous, but as long as collectors show little resistance to price the manufacturers will continue to stick it to consumers.  As posted before it really started about 15 years ago, before demand from China, Russia and other markets had taken off.  In part because manufacturers took note of Franck Muller's pricing.  He was charging for steel watches (often containing average outsourced movements), about the same as what gold time only pieces cost from the likes of PP, AP, and VC.  Seeing that he was selling a good number of watches (at least in some markets, not where I am- dealers always heavily discounted them) they steadily increased their pricing.  More recently, it just seems like they they are enjoying an inside industry joke to see how much they can raise their prices each year, before demand drops significantly.  I like Patek but when will their price increases stop...when we see $50K Calatravas?

Nice collection!  My co-worker loves Doxa dive watches.  It stems from his love of Clive Cussler adventure novels.
