    Sounds like Hermes and women's/MTO bags... pretty silly policy if you ask me.

    Not if your really into these things.


    Besides it's not like they make that many of them.


    Their total production is about 44,000 watches a year total.



    The ones I'm talking about here, they make very few of them every year.


    In fact that's what makes them even more special.


    Besides were talking 100's of thousands of dollars anyway.

    Ferrari does similar stuff... IMO if you've got the money you've got the money. One shouldn't have to have accumulated many lesser models to have access to the top tier.

    got a question for you watch techies: my new Seiko's spring bar keeps falling out. Only one side, and I've already replaced the bar. Suggestions on fixing this? Its an 18mm strap. Maybe a 20mm bar?

    I think your missing the point, and no Ferrari doesn't have anything similiar to what Patek offers, I can pretty much gurantee that.


    I'm not sure which watches you actually consider lesser models, but most enthusiast don't tend to look at it this way.


    It's more of a journey, than anything else.


    Besides Patek is not the only manufacture of luxury watches to reserve certain models for their more loyal clientele.


    It's the way things are done, besides it's not like they have to worry whether it will sell, because it will.

    Depends on the distance between the lugs.


    I doubt that you would be able to use 18mm bars if the distance was really 20mm.


    It is also possible the spring bars you bought may not be all that good.
