I love the Railmaster, great choice. It's a shame Omega discontinued it.
Looks great although it would benefit from a polish. Does it need a service?
That GP is stunning, although the GO is no slouch either.
Patek Annual Calendar, hands down. And 27? You must be doing something right with your life....
Seems like you are leaning toward the IWC yourself. Get the one you think will make you happier.
I've been observing the price of a particular watch (JLC reserve de march) and noticed that the price has gone up about 50% in the past few years. Is this the norm?
It has been overhauled last month. My watchmaker will polish just the crystal for me. I did not want to polish the case as id rather let the 43 years of nicks be. that picture doesnt really do the watch justice as it looks like there is water damage on the dial but it is not the case. I will have it polished by today hopefully and upload another pic
I am very lucky that the dial and all parts are original. I purchased from a collector in China who had great communication and a better offering than ebay in terms of price and product!
they increase prices for sure so it may have amounted to almost 50%. i love that watch too btw.
What other watches do you currently own if you don't mind me asking.
always good to buy it when you can!
Yes, now it is. But, pre-2002 it wasn't... the prices have been increasing with a intensity not seen before. The high Swiss watches have become overpriced for what they are (except for a very few very complicated examples).
IWC Da Vinci 3750 perpetual
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rubberclad
I recently had a dream that I owned an Audemars Royal Oak Equation of Time in rose gold, but then I woke up...
Tell that to my ex-wife.
Clearly there are other forces at work, but the Swiss Franc is pretty high right now. I was in Switzerland a few months ago, and everything was crazy expensive.
