Re: Which watch do you feel will appreciate most in 10 years?

Hublots. Specifically, the early models with carbon fiber dials and ceramic bezels, not the multiple iterations they spawned like ice bang, matte bang, finger bang, etc. Those are the ones to watch out for, imo. I believe it’s Matt bang, without the “e” on the end. Don’t forget that non-limited mod...

Re: If you had to pare down your collection to 2 watches.......

RM 011 Titanium
16750 (or 126710 if I can go with a watch I don't currently own)

The GMT is perfect for work - enough color to be interesting, understated enough to be worn in all situations. The RM is my fun piece.

Re: No date watches

I like the date, but I also like complications. Big date is my second favorite complication after dual timezone, especially when it is executed well like Lange or VC Overseas Chronograph.

Re: Laurent Ferrier's Bridge One

This is a LF I can't get behind. Looks like a Bulgari Assioma. Or really any other rectangular watch that nobody wants. If it isn't a Cartier Tank or JLC Reverso, it probably is as desirable as herpes. This goes for Rolex (Cellini Prince), Patek (Gondolo), Lange (Cabaret), etc... I am, however, imp...

My ideal is a thin 44mm submersible.

Re: 2019 Watch Goals

For me, I am hoping stainless Rolex sport watches become more reasonable, at least on the pre-owned market. I'd like to add a black dial Sky Dweller and Pepsi.

Happy new year, DWC. To a great year ahead!
