    A buddyof mine who owns a pawnshop broughg several tag heuer watches yesterday at the court because another club member was interested in buying one. I don't know much about watches but they all looked good.

    Naalala ko mga posters dito tuloy and na tempt at napaisip din ako 😀

    Here's a pretty lengthy roasting of that pyramid over at WUS:

    Watch brands hierarchy?

    I guess that's why I will forever have a fundamental concern with the luxury watch hobby - it's for people who buy SRP and don't mind at all. It's for people who think, "How much is that? 500k? Okay, I'll have one."

    I personally don't prefer buying things that aren't bargains, unless there's no bargain option and I really want it. In everything I buy - from clothes to gadgets to engagement rings - I get the most joy from being able to get it cheaper than its perceived value.

    So I guess a second luxury watch won't come around the corner unless I find a really good deal or fall in love with another watch.

    I'd suggest you find a particular model you like first instead of just buying what you see. That way, you can be sure that it's really the one that sings to you, and you can also verify if the price is right.

    My personal favorite Tag is the Carrera 1964 re-edition:



    It's quite expensive though so the cheaper CV2111 would be good enough:

    ^nah. It was just a passing thought probably fueled by beer. I'm pretty satisfied w/ my 25 ++ year old swiss army watch

    I got curious as to how small the watch enthusiast community really is. WUS estimates around 0.02% of the population.

    Seems about right. Just for kicks, I checked out the TipidPC forums and the 0.02% seems to check out - the only watch thread there has about 10 replies per year, and mostly of fashion watches and at most a Tag. PEx was a bit more active, and I was pleasantly surprised to see *K.I.L.L. there very, very active and was basically the watch guru for everyone else. Interestingly, it seems that Tsikot comes out second to PWC in terms of activity in watch discussions.

    i think watch appreciation is a learned and expensive hobby.
    and if one takes a look at just how difficult it is to read some of these uber-expensive timepieces...
    sabi nga ng isa, "at that price, telling time is not the raison de etre."
    more of, "appreciation of engineering marvels on your wrist".

    You think so
    Many like it or more valuable

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
