    i remember buying mine for what i thought was a crazy number, but they have gotten crazier!

    i still long for a coke bezel GMT. maybe someday.
    $8,100 for the ND. Most of their prices are on their website now.

    Does Rolex actually charge the mrsp that they have on their website or do they up charge at their retail stores?

    MSRP. Now, would anyone just be able to walk in off the street and buy one is a different story.

    Yep, authorized dealers don't up charge.

    It's also worth noting that Rolex does't really have their own retail stores. They may have a tiny number of corporate owned stores somewhere, I'm not sure, but pretty much all of them are independent jewelry stores that are authorized to sell Rolex. So it's a standard retail model, where the manufacturer sells at cost to the retailer and the retailer sells at (or around) MSRP to customers. The grey market, with the insanely inflated prices, only benefits the grey market.

    Sea master would be my recommendation. I'm selling my other Omega cheap, but it's more of a dress watch (exactly what I need living in the mountains) than a utility watch like the Seamaster.

    Everyone's talking about Rolex and I'm just over here enjoying the hell out of my G Shock square. My Zelos and Citizen are both arriving this week, likely both tomorrow actually.

    Interesting that ebay is now offering and promoting an independent authentication service. i just noticed this today, but this could potentially lend some confidence to the sometimes sketchy world of buying used high end watches...

    Other than not specifying who the actual authenticators are, it's seems good to the extent that you can trust eBay. Hopefully it decreases the number of people who buy a luxury watch on eBay and then run to an AD to find out if their "promised to be authentic" insert expensive automatic watch name here is supposed to have a ticking seconds hand.

    My wife sure has some stories of the crap that's come in her door with people asking about authenticity...after they already bought it. Facepalm.

    I think I paid about $3400 for my ND over 20 years ago. So about 140% increase in price over 20+ years. Is that good or bad?

The finish is truly up to standards with watches 2-3x the price.

    For $1k, you can get a ton of used watches, you really can't go wrong with fine time pieces. A used co-axial aqua terra will set you back about $1k, they are great because they are pretty versatile and come in 3 sizes.
    I have a Seamaster Professional Chrono! I found it in a surplus store about 12 years ago, It came with the box and book. It is my standby when the Apple Watch is dead :)

    Probably worse than, say, computers or televisions but better than education or housing. Products evolve over time, so it's also hard to compare apples to apples.

    that's just over a 4% annualized return...you woulda done better owning the S&P 500, but i'm sure you got a lot more joy from the watch!

    here's an interesting take on daytonas and subs...

    Well, yesterday I was visiting one of favorite coffee joints here in Taipei as they make the only legit chicken salad sandwich in all of Taiwan. Anyway, across the street there happens to be a Rolex dealer so I took a peek in the window after lunch. To my amazement, there was a Polar Explorer II and a 39mm Explorer 1. Usually if there are any sports watches they are either two tone or one of the models that aren't as popular like the Yacht-Master or something like that.

    I've been on the list for the Explorer for a couple of years and was a little miffed, but I went in to ask about it and of course it's spoken for. They were gracious enough to let me try it on and I wouldn't say it reduced my enthusiasm for it, but I didn't leave there thinking I must have this watch. Perhaps too much build up in my time spent thinking about it, but I've also tried on this recently and it's dominated my watch thoughts since...

    While I was in the shop, the saleswoman took the opportunity to show me my position on this list for this watch...she turned like 2 or three pages in her book before she pointed out my name (at least 50 people) and I've been on it for a couple years. I think I may need to move on from this.
