  1. No it’s not classed as a car finance situation, it’s basically a credit agreement similar to a credit card. You can sell items you purchased using your credit card without having to pay back the bank immediately. it’s essentially a 0% cash loan Wow, so many bitter low level opinions on here, it’s like Twitter! Yes, offcourse I have a house to leave my kids, also have their uni fees sorted. random artwork, precious metals, stocks and crypto. I’ve also mastered the art of multi tasking, which means I can buy nice watches to leave my kids AND be an amazing Dad. ffs. You people. oh and I’m not arsed who is impressed with the cost of my watches, I just decided to “invest” in a watch and drive a piece of **** car, than the other way around. I assumed everyone on a “ watch forum” would understand the obsession and attraction to owning watches, who gives a rats arse about cars.... this isn’t pistonheads!! and in house isn’t everything, as long as the movement is top quality, i don’t think the selitta is worthy of a £4K price tag. and any clown who doesn’t realise that borrowing £3k on basically 0% interest is either dumb as **** or bitter. side note.... buy btc today, you’ll double your money by end of the month ( some free advice for those who can’t afford it). Sub no date is just a piece of beauty
  2. Opinions appreciated so looking to build a really nice collection to pass onto to my 2 sons, both young so hopefully I have enough time left Earlier this year I purchased a IWC ingenieur IW357001 brand new from an AD for £3k on 0% finance(RRP £4250) ive just offloaded it to a online merchant for £2900. put a £2k deposit down on a speedy MOTM and got a nice Longines hydro as a daily beater for £950. Both the IWC and speedy are on 0% finance, so I essentially have got a £2900 loan with an interest charge of £100. reason I flipped the IWC is i just didn’t think it was worthy, Selitta movement etc. I’m gonna save up and get a really top end dress watch. Im considering the JLC master control date brown croc strap, as it will make a nice dress watch. final watches will be a SS sub no date, and the Navi B01 in house movement giving me a nice collection to pass down Any thoughts or suggestions on alternatives?

  4. I’m working class, but have moved up in my career to afford small luxuries. I used to have a E350 Mercedes, as I don’t smoke, gamble and only drink on very rare occasions, that was “my treat”. After many ridiculously high prices bills from Mercedes which seemed never ending I decided to sell the car, which although was pre owned was still losing £500 a month in depreciation. now I think.. what do I appreciate as much as a nice car, but won’t drain my hard earned cash. watches were my obvious choice, when you see the reaction people have to spending £5k on a watch and explain that the watch WILL depreciate (most of the time) but not half as much as the car they drive which is most likely on HPI, they have no comeback. my kids get everything they need, my mortgage gets paid, my house gets decorated as required. my watch collection has so far cost me @£8k but I have heirlooms to pass to my children, and there children and so on. Not even a rolls Royce has that longevity, unless it’s driven once per year! * I actually bought a oyster perpetual in 2005 for £1790, from an AD on 24 months 0% finance. I sold it last year for £4500. so my watch collection is looking like a pretty sound investment, even though I buy watches for enjoyment and appreciation of fine craftsmanship. i know people who would call me a t*#t for paying £4K for a Speedy moon watch..... as they smoke there way through £3k of death sticks a year!!! imagine getting lung cancer at 60 and thinking.... “ I could have had an extra 20 years with my children and grandchildren, and had a Daytona, GMT, JLC and a moonwatch to pass down to them”!!! That is what wasting money looks like. my kids love sitting with me and cleaning the watch collection, great memories and legacy, that’s what a watch collection can give.
  5. Update, kept my IWC for now, waiting for the JLC calendar moon phase to appear on Chrono24 bought my grail Chrono, got me a tasty speedy MOTM with black leather strap ( hesalite). figured nearly every other watch I own had sapphire and an exposed mechanism so why not.
  6. I think they look very similar, in an ideal scenario I’d have the black strap on my IWC and brown on the JLC. but I’m purchasing a Speedy MOTM as the chrono for my collection. The price of the JLC is £4400, and I’m being offered £3k for my IWC. £1400 plus an IWC for the JLC! whilst we’re on the subject, can anyone think of a better Chrono than a speed master MOTM, obviously Rolex are not an option as I’m not paying 50% above retail for anything!
  7. Currently own a IWC ingenieur 2017 model, although purchased this year from AD with good discount. despite this line receiving lots of negativity ( mostly due to the ETA clone movement) I think the watch looks stunning. it looks very similar to the JLC master control date, which is a grail of mine. ive been offered a good trade in price for the IWC if I purchase a 2020 model of the JLC. question is... Is the IWC a contender in this discussion, or is it a get rid now and grab the JLC, resale isn’t on the cards, I’m thinking of leaving my watch collection to my kids.
  8. There’s much more to life than a beer garden …That can mean whatever I want it to. Live and let live
  9. I’m sure I’ll enjoy the look on my sons face more when I present him with one of these watches in 30 years time, than you will when having a liver transplant because of those “ crazy days in the beer garden with your mates” most of which you’ll have forgotten about due to brain cells being pickled Btw, offcourse my wife knows how much they cost, ( it’s called taking the piss) and I sense some inflated self importance amongst some comments! life’s way too short to take offence, laugh it off and move on
  10. Anyone got any idea what the latest rulings are regarding shipping watches to Europe. sold a watch on Chrono24, but getting a solid answer from the top couriers is like blood from a stone It’s a quartz watch, but I believe those type of batteries are not on the prohibited list cheers in advance
  11. Ernest Jones...! Took a Bremont back to them for a refund, and the clueless store manager tried talking me into changing my mind. needless to say, he spent almost 30 minutes inspecting it for damage, if only they where that enthusiastic when shipping them out by the dozen over the Xmas rush!
  12. I purchased an IWC from Bucherer online, never came with plastic over the case. but it’s unworn, and has an 8 year warranty My seiko SNK came with a blank warranty card, but I got it off Amazon, so receipt won’t go missing.
  13. I already have an IWC, and that’s what has made the Roly catch my eye. the only bracelet watches I have at the moment are a Longines hydroconquest, and a GS. My Navi and IWC, both have black leather straps, so JLC would have to be dark brown. It is when I can spend that on the wife, it’s the proverbial “throw the dog a bone” keeps her of the scent The JLC is probably the closest I’ll ever get to experiencing one of the “big 3”. I had a Rolex some years back, paid £1700 new, sold it a year ago for £4K. Think I’ll pull the trigger on the JLC.. then get on a waiting list and hopefully have a GMT before 2030
  14. So... im currently having an inner debate, as I can’t let the wife know how much i invest in my watches! choice A: 2009 Rolex Air King with blue dial and Roman numerals, original papers and box. choice B: 2021 Jaeger Le Coultre master date, black leather strap, and still has 7 years manufacturing warranty. I was dead set on the Jaeger, but the Rolex is cheaper by £500... and it’s a Rolex! I feel it should be a no brainer and it’s Jaeger all the way, any advice/ opinions welcome
  15. https://www.chisholmhunter.co.uk/vacheron-constantin-fiftysix-complete-calendar-moonphase-watch.html Quite a steal at only £20,900!
  16. Just bought a solo, black face, white hands, 43mm dial with the polished finish. RRP is £3095 on these, got it from an AD for £2100, 0% finance, and a free Wolf watch winder.
