    Wait until they announce that the new line is designed by some quasi-artist a' la Jasper Morrison, so everyone runs falling to buy it.

    I think the RO 15400 is going to be updated now with the new movement in the 3 hand dress watch with the date window moving to 4:30.

    Nvm. Just saw the AP site and see the date window is still at 3pm.

    The only desirable new piece this year is the salmon dial 15202. Too bad it is only 75 pieces and WG.

    They were too lazy to hire a proper designer and thought their logo already sells. You know like Rolex.

    May be Jasper Morrison or Damien Hirst would agree to attach their name for 10% retroactively?

    I understand that they provide OEM for very high end models so probably rare to see one in this thread. The cost of the movement alone is probably the reason the Ming is quite expensive.

    Honestly around here and among my friends people are just getting tired of watches. Some just keep whatever 40-50 watches in their collection in the hope that they'll keep going up in value but not buying anything new. Some like myself started selling them in bulks and moved on to other hobbies. I've been buying el cheapo Kickstarter watches lately and only some truly rare precious metal models that are at least 70-75% off discounted. Whatever the latest models they announced in the last few days are truly boring. Well this is interesting if a bit insane:

    Moser has officially Jumped The Shark.

    The implosion of this wristwatch-bullshit bubble will be spectacular.

    I'd like to see this in the metal, although I suspect the giant onion would kill it for me. That and the price.
