  1. Thank you, The point on a recession was basically about buying a watch from someone who has to sell it.. I currently own a Seiko 8M25 8020, an old faded but very cool piece. I wouldn't be looking at buying new unless I had good reason to aka it would go up in value.. I'll be buying used if possible. I just know that I've always had expensive tastes!
  2. Hello, first time poster here! I have a bit of an odd question. I'm 22, currently a business student and I love watches. I am completely fascinated by them. I'm putting money aside to buy a very nice watch, I don't know if that will be a graduation gift, a masters completion gift, a wedding gift or a 'just because' gift to myself.. that'll all depend on how long I'm saving and what for. My father owns a Rolex Submariner Ref: 16800 from 1982, matte dial with tritium hands. I love that watch and my father has been nice enough to size it for me so I can wear it for a week! One factor I'm considering when looking for a watch is that I don't want it to be too similar to the Sub but I also don't want to go out and buy something different just for the sake of it. It's a little morbid but the sad reality is this watch will probably be mine some day, hopefully not for a long long time. There are a couple watches I love. Rolex Explorer 1016 Patek Calatrava Chronograph. Patek Nautilus (and Aquanauts, love both). Rolex Daytona (Not bi metal). I also quite like GMTs, Day-Dates, Black Bays, Royal Oaks and Speedmasters. Those are all varying degrees of expensive.. I'm not even including the Rolex Daytona Pulsation Dial I'd love to own or a Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar.. Need I mention the Paul Newman panda dial? I'm setting aside €100 a week working part time as a shop assistant so I can hopefully afford a grail of mine before I'm 30, or some other arbitrary age. I don't know if I'm just being a little ridiculous, I mean I might turn around and realise I should have stuck that €20,000 in a pension fund by the time I have it saved up. My fathers Rolex has been his one watch collection. If I was wealthy enough I'd dedicate a room to watches, and another to guitars. I think I'm looking at a SS Daytona, but I'm not sure and I'd like to know from others who have saved up for years for a watch, was it worth it? I won't have this watch before I graduate college. I won't have it before I start into my career because in reality I'll have around €3000 saved up for a watch that costs close to €20,000. Am I just fooling myself while I drool over pictures online? Should I be setting my sights lower? Will I be lucky enough to have the cash during a recession or when the supposed Rolex bubble bursts?
