40 watches is definitely over the top lol

 

i think you could have a good collection up to like 10 and keep most of them in rotation, not collecting dust.

40 was a bit crazy, so he downsized. 

 

When I had 4 watches I would rotate through them frequently.  Beyond that, and it does become a bit of work rotating through them regularly...but it's work I'm happy to do ;)

I feel the same about 40+ pairs of shoes. :)

I would very much like for somebody to explain to me the appeal of Panerai watches. 

 

Not to cast any aspersions, I just don't quite get it.

I like Panerai watches because of their simple and vintage design. They pair well with just about any outfit from casual to classic.

Anyone care to opine on the irrational exuberance (read: insanity) that seems to have infected the auction market of late? (See, e.g., Hodinkee's breathless coverage of the Geneva auctions this weekend.)

Low interest rates and esp in the US the stock market is nervous -> speculators search for the next value investments. Following a couple of high-end car forums and same is seen in cars, previosly available relatively cheap but limited models have risen in value for the past year or two.

Plus the usual Rolex-rage.

On rotation this week, the SD4000:
