Happy friday people ! Poll : i’m thinking of selling my Omega Speedmaster and IWC Portofino for an Explorer 1. Thoughts ? Just felt like that the speedmaster is a too gimmicky

Bought this a while back, put it in today for the first time. Been wearing a Sea Dweller for 15 years. I’m thinking of a rubber strap, not sure about the jubilee bracelet.

How much can you expect to get for a rolex watch if you sell to an AD (e.g. tourneau)? I know it really depends on model and state of the watch but assuming a 5 yr old worn watch. Should you expect ar… more

Poll Do you start conversations with random people in public places when you notice their watch? Even if it’s a regular sub etc (i.e nothing crazy special/rare) Just curious

Buying my first watch for work/client meetings. Any suggestions? Price range varies from 3k-12k. It’s a big range but I’m also thinking maybe it doesn’t make sense to wear a 12k watch to work lol

Saw a fluted dj41 with oyster bracelet at my AD today. I have been a jubilee hardo but gotta say this combo makes perhaps one of the most versatile Rolex models (dj36 is a bit too dressy for my liking). Very very tempting!!

What is the general opinion of the new GS SBGP013 model? Seems sleek if on the basic side. Looking at this as a starter luxury watch in mid-late 20s. For reference, retail price is $2600

How many of you own an Apple Watch? How often do you wear it? I quite like mine but each time I wear it it feels like a missed opportunity to wear my sub.

What does the luxury watch bowl think of today’s Tudor BB58 “Navy Blue” release? The watch community is pretty hyped up today. I think a lot has to do with it being readily available at ADs right at announcement. Hope this will be standard practice for future releases.

Are we considering the Seiko ‘20 Alpinists as luxury watches? Just picked up the SPB117 as a birthday present for myself... wasn’t sure how I would feel about the cyclops but really enjoying it so far

This might be a thing that doesn’t exist but is anyone aware of vintage dive watches without tritium? I like the idea of vintage. I don’t like the idea of getting cancer.

Is putting your name on a waiting-list a commitment to buy?
