They're all Richemont brands, so people float.
I just can't get into vintage-inspired watches with faux tritium. I love the vintage designs but I don't want my lume to look like its 40 years old when it's brand new. Especially since it won't actually age that way.
The seamaster 300 is the only Omega dive that I even slightly enjoy the design of, but the lume ruins it for me.
That and the 21mm lug spacing
20 mm lug spacing and no fauxtina.
You are correct, it's top of my list and a significant change of heart will have to happen to knock it down. The Sub/GMT II C-black and white face Daytona are actually all tied, with the Daytona being most loved but also most similar to my current watch, but I do love the Sub and of those it's the most versatile/different from what I have.
Yes, I don't particularly like the faux-aged look, either. I don't think that the Oris is as egregious as the Omega Seamaster, but it would be better without it.
I was thinking of recommending a vintage (or a "NOS") Omega Seamaster 300, as Kaplan just did, but the prices nowadays are becoming pretty ridiculous. $4-5000 for watches that were selling for less than $2000 a couple of years back and which, to be frank, are not old watches - they're old movements in new cases, with new dials, new hands and so on. Having said that, if you could still get them for under $2000, I probably would get one, but I'm not prepared to pay the prices that they're going for nowadays.
A couple of questions regarding flipping a watch.
- how much depreciation should I except on a one year old panerai 560 that I bought new from AD and is in excellent condition?
- what are the best forums to sell on? I've sold previous watches on TRF, TZ and even here, but never this brand.
- thoughts on using it as a trade-in + cash with a grey dealer on TRF? I notice many of them post FSOT but I imagine I'd be taking a bath on trade in value.
Try jacek at hq milton.
Thanks. I forgot about HQ.
So went to a panel yesterday about us.. err umm watch geeks. Some interesting discussion. If anybody is around NYC this weekend, the larger event, Timecrafters is absolutely worth checking out.
it's a tough market for panerai these days. even the more popular pieces sit for a while on paneristi, especially since AD's are willing to go 20-22% off. give DavidSW a call to see what he can offer in trade value and then you can see what to expect to get selling on your own. maybe 10-15% more realistically, but may take much longer.
David SW is selling the 560 brand new for $4825. Used with full set seem to start at $4k.
I can't help thinking that's rather tempting.
Ouch - I paid ~6k USD from an AD last summer.
The market for panerai has been super soft the past few years...
anyone looking for a ceramic sub (date/non-date)? If so, I'm thinking of organizing a group buy.
