What’s a good resource to research the history, reputation, current news, etc of different watch brands? Looking for an accredited resource to compare brands before my first major purchase.

Agreed. If you have your eye on a specific model they have really solid video reviews on YouTube. The host is a proper historian and has insane horological knowledge

Monochrome, time and tide, ablogtowatch, fratello, worn & wound. It’s usually best to search the reference and “review” (e.g. “Rolex 16570 review”) and a ton of stuff will come up. Forums are good too, but just remember that you never know who’s on the other end.

What do you think cutoffs for fund size categories in VC are? Obviously it’s much smaller asset class than PE, but would something like this make sense:

<50M: microfund
<100M: Seed Fund
<500M: Early Stage (A&B) “Midcap”
<2B: Growth (C+) “Late Stage”
2B+: “Megafund”

Funds in larger categories can do smaller deals, but larger check sizes make more sense for them.

Is a preowned Breitling Navitimer B01 (black eye blue dial) on leather strap at $4200 a good deal? It’s in excellent condition, purchased in 2020, but was a non-AD purchase (grey market) so it doesn’t have factory warranty.

Getting ready to buy my first sports Rolex. Dead split between a pre-ceramic GMT and a pre-ceramic sub, I like different things about each. What should I think about in choosing between the two?

Help me decide which piece to get as my first luxury watch after this years promo. My brother has a strong relationship with an AD so my options are looking like green Omega seamaster, GS snowflake, GMT Batman. Obvi Batman is almost 2x the others but I’ll eventually have all 3 at some point in my life

Headed to Europe in a couple weeks. Anyone have success getting a Rolex at MSRP over there? Willing to travel. Assume outside the US there can’t be the same demand dynamics

Ok. So I have a Speedmaster Mk ii that I LOVE, but I noticed last week that the chrono hand is stuck at about a half second off zero. It’s a bit outside of warranty, and Omega said I’d need to send it in and wait 8-10 weeks just to receive an estimate for a cost and time to fix it. I’ve only worn it maybe 30 times since buying it. I’m considering:
1. Bite the bullet and send it to Omega.
2. Ask a local luxury watch repair shop to do it.
3. Do nothing since it works fine otherwise.
Thoughts?
