Collection building stopped a longtime ago, more about can I bear to part with any? Have several ‘Hot’ watches that the market would eat up at ridiculous profit to me - do I want to go there for a quick buck? Not really. However, definitely for some, the time has come. As to actively doing anything about it…Curious if any of you good people have changed any of your watch-related “plans” and/or general attitudes about the “hobby” as a direct result of present bleak conditions in financial markets, geo-politics, domestic horror (Americans), etc...?
For example, I had been on a this-and-then-this-and-then-this sort of collection building mission that lately seems...pretty lame (it was always trivial, but the mood has maybe turned?). I don’t know...
Your observations are absolutely on the mark. I have been smitten by Chopard's craftsmanship for a while.. they are a well kept swiss secret IMO. Not for long.
Take it with a grain of salt .. None.What independents is everyone watching?
Which established indies are you talking about with 3P movements?Take it with a grain of salt .. None.
Now may be the time to look for watches/materials that nobody wants to touch. Not the Indies but the RG/Platinum pieces sitting idle on shelves because everyone wants an Indie in Ti/Steel at a premium. Much like a lot of late cycle IPOs, I see a crop of Indies showing up to the party and well established Indies throwing out pieces with third party movements trying to make a quick buck.
