Put a deposit on a Rolex Batman today. If it looks as good as the pics in person I will get it tomorrow.

Pretty hyped as it's discontinued and only 1 year old, still in warranty and was literally worn a handful of times. Minty with box papers and 4 more years of warranty.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Oh wow. Very nice. :fancy:

So do you ever wear the thing? Could almost just stand on its own on the nightstand.

Thanks.

I'm going to wear the shit out of it.

I could clean it and store it away and sell it in ~5 years for a lot more, but I want to enjoy it, and used ones still appreciate quite nicely. At the worst they seem to hold their value when they get "character marks".

The price range on these is $14k-$18k. Spending that much and not using it would be a shame. Plus, who knows, the market could implode and they could be worth a lot less later.

That's the attitude.

That’s the way to go, I hate the idea of not using and enjoying things, what’s the point.

Sweet looking watch too.

im always :amaze: at the used rolex market and their likely ability to maintain value. Its a game I just cant understand, while you can walk into several shops and buy a new one.

Not necessarily. Apparently there are waitlists for most steel sports rolexes.

A new stainless sport or professional rolex (GMT Master II, Sub, Daytona, etc) will be just about impossible to buy by walking into a store. Most are 2-5 year waits. That's what happen when you have them MSRP at $8,500-$12,400... everyone that has a little money wants one. Now, if you want a precious metal version of these, you stand a better chance of getting one. I've seen TWO gold Rolexes in these models in the last year in store, but they run $20k new. A platinum Daytona is about $70k new and you can order that any day and have it in ~2 months.

Simply put, I was told by no less than 5 authorized dealers that if I wanted a new stainless GMT, Sub or Daytona I would need to spend about $120k in the store to be put on the list to wait the 2-5 years.

I did find this for my office. It’s a factory blue print for the 1986 E30 Coupe. I picked out the frame with a touch of the Bavarian blue for flavor.

$11,800. A bit out of my league. I bought a good fake in italy in 2007. Gave to my dad and it sits in a box.

That one seems to be priced kind of fair-ish. It's a bit older and no warranty, but looks like it might be clean. That model doesn't demand higher prices (new MSRP they are $11,300) in the secondary market though, and they are bigger at 43 and 44mm.

It's getting firm and dark. :dedong:

Should be ready to slice in just about 2 weeks. Tried out the chamber vac sealer the other day on some Prime NY steaks, I sealed them with some butter and seasonings, then cooked them sous vide and finished them on the grill for some char. That sealer is so much better than the standard units that it is almost worth it's price.
