Guess I’m going to shell out $10-11k for a used explorer mark II. I think these will hold their value since they’re 39mm and the new versions went back to 36mm.

Unfortunately in all reality if you want one it’s probably your best bet for the next 2+ years I assume. Congrats in any case!

Was just skimming eBay and remembering “buying” a very specific sub reference within late model exp2s 3 or 4 years ago and having the dealer contacting me to say that the pictures were not of the specific watch and it didn’t have the marshmallow dial I had been hunting. The hunt continues - there’s an 11k option out there but with a new kid, 2 cars on order and work going on at the house it’s a little harder to justify.

Asked my local AD to get on the list for the Snoopy release and he confirmed that he’ll receive 2 watches and i’ll be the second in the list if i place down a $5k deposit. He also said that he doesn’t know when the watch will come out as Omega may release it later than October but I can take my deposit back. Is there anything sketchy about this interaction? Just want to err on the side of caution and not get scammed as a first time buyer

Watch hack: the best place to find luxury watches at good prices are police auctions. If you live in a major city they have them from time to time (usually after some major raids). Usually there’s not too many people and so with watches you can come up with a steal.
