9 times out of 10....any watch you buy new from an AD will yield a loss even if selling privately.

99.999 times out of 100 more likely. It's a question of losing 20% versus 70%.

Hoping I might find some "value" lots in the afternoon session

 



Yeah I'm watching it now, some interesting pieces that still don't cost as much as a house... some.

Nice....seems like you almost always see this type of fluted Rolex as a DJ or Day-Date, but it looks quite fetching to me sans cyclops.

Rolex agrees:

I like that new model a lot.

Well, I'll be honest: I've never really paid a *whole* lot of attention to anything outside of Rolex's sport models anyway.

And to me, the Cellini family is kind of like its own ball of wax.
post #1658 of 4011
Nobody pays attention to Cellini. I love them, but never give them a second thought when I buy.

Been away for a while. This today.

Stunning Reverso. I'm trying to figure how to add a Grande Reverso Ultra Thin to my small collection.

Looks like the first 116500 Daytonas are trickling out into the grey market, asking $10K over MSRP.

What does every one think of the newly announced Luminor Due?

I can get behind the idea of a thinner but can't imagine paying almost $11,000 for that watch. They stripped away a lot of what makes a Luminor a Luminor and replaced it with something that's trying to be both am action hero watch and somewhat of a dress watch
