I do have my own next watch list - that I keep updated from time to time.
In general the list is very static, and as a normal WIS - the number of trades in watches is well below 1/year.
If I can sell a watch, I will probally get a new watch, and if very lucky the total number of watches will increase.
My list at present looks someting like this:
- Rolex Explorer II - 1655 - COST = $$$$
- Rolex Sub No-date 5513 meters first - COST = $$
- Rolex Day Date - gold watch - like it. - COST ? $$$
- Omega Speedmaster cal.321 - COST = $
- Tudor snowflake - COST = $
- Rolex Deep Sea - COST = $$$
- Rolex Subs 5513, 1680, 16800, 16808 - COST = $-$$$$
- Rolex GMT 1675 - always nice - COST = $
Here are the dilema - what to go for and what to pass on.
Right now I have my eyes on the following watches - but can't have all!!
A 1655 - very beat up - but a service could maybe fix it, so deal could be good
A 5513 meters first - still a watch I want - but I do have a 5513 - and they can be found - price is OK but nothing special.
A Day Date - Gold - something very special and different from my sports rolex - time to try something new - deal could be OK - but bracelet is somewhat loose - can this be fixed.
I can't have all so time will show what I will land.
I hope it will be the 1655 - awaiting some more information - very beat up = risk
The Day-Date - will I used it / wear it - and easy to find again, bracelet is a litte loose = minor risk
The 5513 - meters first - again "easy" to find - but I'm just a sucker for 5513 = no risk
I guess it is a dilema you have all be in - so how do you select which watch to get and which one to let go?
I have question on the 1655 in next thread.
