  1. So this will be my future man cave, currently my storage to cover my move. I built it with some help from family. Will eventually be cladded then Inside will be insulated and filled with all my tools, Collectables etc.
  2. It will never happen! Oh how the long for that day to arrive! I think about least once a day. I run through entire collection in my head, which ones to keep, which to sell on etc and keep trying to convince myself that I only really need 1 watch but then I have emotional or sentimental values to certain watches and I'm back to square one.
  3. If you go into that much detail not alot of things are worth the price point including fair few watches!!!
  4. Wolf seem to produce top notch quality products. The watch winders look awesome.
  5. Without a doubt I understand your thought process and in most cases it comes as a natural decision in the buying process. In this particular case mind, you will find as you scroll the threads that resell value is a major influencer when it comes to some watch buyers. It's understandable, I mean you can watch video after video just on Rolex residuals, which will be the next best money spinner etc. It can be rather infuriating for the veterans on the forum however as it's more about the love, fascination, even addiction if like for watches....
  6. It's refreshing to read that someone who wants to spend that sort of money and not mention resell value as part of the buying criteria. Definitely agree not to spend double rrp on a Sub. Fair play to my man I hope whatever you decide on you have good health and wear your watch with pleasure.
  7. Not one of your options I know but Tudor for me. BB58 Pelagos Gmt Whichever one you choose you will have permanent smile on your face. Both Seamaster and SuperOcean fantastic watches but Tudor is just a little niche imo
  8. This is an interesting post to say the least! Some big names and surprising models have made the $hit list. Unfortunately I do have to agree with quite a few of them though, speedy, Daytona, North Flag amongst others. I tried a Submariner on couple of years back and almost stop wearing watches altogether! The shop assistant panicked and said 'maybe today is not the right day to shop watches your not in the right mood'. I was deeply disappointed after putting it on, even though the watch looked stunning and so iconic just wasn't for me.
  9. Deposit perhaps!
  10. All Tudors now taken off sale at EJ
  11. Closed down web page with Seamaster 300 5 times now otherwise would have hit the button!
  12. Good problem to have. Your a model Citizen...
  13. Skydweller blue dial, Daytona & GMT are all almost double rrp if not more, rest hold around £2-6k ish premium sport models.
  14. Here were my trio of Citizen pro dive automatics, well 2 now 1 given away for a charity raffle. So you are off to a good start!
  15. It is 'swiss made' so mostly white label or commissioned to a watch brand to make on behalf of Swarovski. There as some decent but rare (mens)pieces out I last looked. Nice buy for money.
  16. I have seemed to acclimated 100's of die cast models over the past few years. Got boxes of the stuff as well as star wars lego, figures etc. Mrs goes barmy as I around 8 boxes stacked against the living room wall!
  17. Like these Breitlings but they have not updated the movements in a while. I believe slightly tweaked eta's but power reserve pretty mediocre given what what's around these days. Tudor 70hr Omega 55hr Swatch grp 80hr C.ward 5days.
  18. C.ward Tissot Certina Glycine Seiko Orient Hamilton NTH Longines Steinhart Mido That should get you started!
  19. White for me and seriously, seriously considering sell my entire collection off and just buying the white dial and that would be me done! I
  20. I still haven't forgot Crestical
  21. Definitely worth buying discounted and not at rrp but then I guess that goes for everything these days..
  22. Where's the popcorn emoji things are about to get heated! Hang I just seen this was way back in 2017 bloody hell old news or what. Mate I wouldn't worry about it, no one who comes on this forum as a one off rant will ever be taken seriously & that fact you respond even at 3 years make respect your position in all this. You must have plenty of satisfied customers that will testify to your work, I wouldn't worry about old katfish....
