    I started playing MTG as a newbie during 4th Edition-Ice Age block (1995), stopped during the "combo-winter" days of Urza block, and played back again more competitively (limited, constructed, and legacy formats) from Masques to Mirrodin blocks. I sold all my cards for a profit in 2005.



    I asked him for his price and he gave me one. We just laugh about it every time I see him wearing the watch. He started collecting watches from that day moving forward.

    Let's not kid ourselves - watches are luxury items. A 3k Seiko tells time just as well as a 400k Submariner. And a cellphone connected to the internet will have more accurate time than either of them.

    That is why I said some only, construed more specifically as a few. And never did I insinuate that watches are the only ones nor the more accurate basis of time. Iirc some watch do appreciate in time but obviously yung mga collector's item. I may have worded it wrongfully without intent. hehe

    If my father had not given me a watch, I may not ever had one nor would have bought some more. Used my old nokia 5110 as timekeeper for a long time even when working already.

    There are a few cards that still hold good value. Dual lands and pain lands are priced items. Key cards in killer combos are highly sought after since there are a lot of players in the competitive legacy (vintage) block. You may want to check online for current pricing. You may not know you have something there that's worth a thousand or so per card.

    Going back to topic:

    There are some good-looking Swiss watches for around the same price as Seikos and Orients. Steinhart has a good following in PWC. They have homages to the classic submariner-type and flieger-type designs for around 20-30k. Automatic Chronographs (Valjoux 7750) are priced around 50k. Steinhart uses Swiss ETA movement so there's good value on them compared to the similarly-priced quartz offering of the Swatch group (Tissot, Certina, Mido, Hamilton, Longines, Rado).

    yes there are really some watches that hold their value well. just imagine early to mid 2000s 2tone submariners still sell for 300-350k now. wonder how much they were brand new back then

    Talaga? Might be worth selling some cards pala. When I get the time I'll go look for them.

    Re: Steinhart not really a fan of homages, but they do seem like well built watches. For ETA based watches I like Oris because the case and dial designs are a bit more unique. They've gone up quite a bit in pricing though. And not being able to use aftermarket straps is a big minus.

    Not sure if it's been polished, but that's probably the best condition red sub I've seen. Lovely patina. with a lovely price to match hehe.

    I've been tempering this watch habit of mine for sometime now.

    I guess the only way to fight temptation, is to yield to it ..

    Yeah, the Omega is a looker.

    I may look at both watches (and compare condition, discounts, etc.) personally before buying.


What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
