re: OT watch thread: Chronographs and servicing - Newc
My speedy is over the decade mark and it’s running about 2 seconds fast per day, never been serviced. Probably going to send it to the spa this year, and cannot imagine it will cost more than $1,000. That is just the cost associated with the hobby, for better and for worse. If you get an 1861 tha...

re: Whose got a Rolex? - Newc
They aren’t that fragile, but they aren’t that durable either. If you are not careful I would avoid non sports watches (I take mine off to wash my hands, shower, when I’m washing the dishes, etc.). Gold is soft and will dent easily. My sports watches, I wear without care. Most watches nowada...

re: OT Ballers -- Expensive Watches - Newc
That VC Everest is long sold out and selling for 2-3x resale (or more). Even VC overseas is way over retail. That same, I still think there are some good SS sports watch options. I like the Bulgari OF, the Chopard Alpine Eagle, etc. Rolex, at least in a certain price range, is close to unbea...

re: Omega dropped some new models today - Newc
Here is a great picture of what I was talking about: [img]https://www.styleforum.net/attachments/evq3b3gsn1m81-jpg.1763652/[/img] And I say all this being a lover of some Omega (Speedmaster is one of the GOAT watches)....

re: Omega dropped some new models today - Newc
I found the Omega releases today to be kind of Rolex inspired across the board. The new AT in sunburst colors feels like a riff on the OP. Except I vastly prefer the colors of the OP....

re: Telluride recommendations - Newc
Honestly, most of the non-resort restaurants are pretty darn solid. 221 South Oak, Tacos del Gnar, Siam (NOT Siam Tallay), The National, Brown Dog, La Marmotte, there - all are very good in their own way. In my view, with the exception of maybe Aspen, Telluride is the top food ski town....

re: OT watch ballers -- Patek Philippe - Newc
It sells for $20ks. If you owned it and tried to sell it to a reseller, you’d probably get $10k to $15k, or around there. I may just be cautious, but I probably wouldn’t mess with it. I also find that model very underwhelming, so that may be part of it....

re: OT watch ballers -- Patek Philippe - Newc
Buy the seller, not the watch. $12k seems low. Depends on the condition. Does this person have the internet? Honestly, I stay away from most second hand nowadays. Don’t have the budget for what I’m interested in, don’t trust much that is within my budget. Also, remember, box and papers can...

re: Anyone getting nervous about any upcoming Europe trips? - Newc
That is good to hear. We would be traveling with our two young kids, so part of our reticence stems from traveling with them. My wife is concerned about the "Level 4" travel warnings, which to me are not a surprise. I think my biggest concern would be if we got COVID while on the trip. My wi...
