  1. Ok, I'm new to this an contemplating making the jump into the speedmaster world. I cant, for the life of me, tell the difference in big value between these two watches. Can anyone add some thoughts? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Omeg...item5d53e033c9 vs. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-OMEGA-S...item234a6358cc

  3. Thanks Sierra. I was always going to buy used so I'm not that concerned with reselling immediately. That being said, I know where you are coming from and at the end of the day I would like something that maintains value (or in the very rare case goes up). I'm NOT buying a watch as an investment or even to ever sell, though there is something very satisfying about buying something that is rare and does appreciate in value. Do you think the Zenith are too common? I'm interested in that flyback rainbow. Ill look into those. I'm also curious about the IWCs. Ive never owned one and am coming around to them. I'm fascinated by the 7 and 8 day movements. That's impressive! (Anyone else have) any ideas of other great watches in the $8k range?
  4. I can't seem to figure out how to post a poll. Its it because I don't post very often? I'm also looking for suggestions on other watches if anyone has any good ideas that they think might fit. :)
  5. I have a problem that I have been agonizing over for the past 6 or so months. I have the ability to spend apx $7-8k on a new watch and I still don't know what to buy. I'd like to start building a legit watch collection. Right now I have a couple nice watches (Breitling Aerospace, Sea3 RGM, and some others) and one really nice watch (Blancpain Fifty Fathoms w/BP Bracelet) that I consider my grail. Damn I love that thing! I wear it nearly every day. Now since I have the very traditional and conservative BP 50F I'm in the mood to get something a little more wild. Now, I thought about going down the Zenith El Primero route. I figured that could be a perfect compliment for the BP 50 Fathoms, as they both represent the modern version of watch milestones (first auto chronograph and first, sorry Rolex, modern diver). I might get one anyhow, but they don't really excite me. I do like the Striking 10th though... So now to the watches I'm debating over. I would like something that is pretty uncommon, modern, and built by a company that could make some great stuff going forward. I've, sort of, narrowed it down to two watches (trying to figure out how to do a poll). Hublot Big Bang: -Pros: I love the look, company, feel, and rarely see them in the wild. I'm a fan of the company. -Cons: I am worried that the company has over extended itself and values (on the resale market) might continue to fall. I hate that it doesn't have standard straps as I have several I enjoy alternating through my watches. Romain Jerome Moon: -Pros: I am a huge moon/Apollo 11 nut and love the history behind that. I NEVER see these in the wild. The company is making some pretty wild watches (that I'll never afford) and it would be neat to be a member of the community. It has standard straps and I'd be able to use several I own. -Cons: While I love the look of the watches, I don't like them as much as the BB. While I see good things coming out of the company this is the riskier bet (no doubt) as this company has a much bigger potential to die off in the near future. Arg. I have about 200 watches that I keep bookmarking. I just don't know what to jump on. I really want something original with a great story behind it.
