Ah Eddie, the Patek Philippe supercomplication, the most expensive pocket watch ever made and bought by someone in the middle east 8)

I agree Pillow Corum makes killer watches.

A very popular watch at the present time with pro athletes is Panerai


Richard Mile in just a few years has caught everybody's attention in the watchmaking community with his super original and complicated watches all made with super resistant materials. Expensive stuff!!

JF those are cool...

I tired to find the Corum I saw but couldn't get a good picture of it, it was a 48mm Admiral in Rose gold...also found some badass Porshe Design ones in the same store, and of course...the traditional Breitling just because...and yes, about 10 more that I have no idea who they were the $$$ tag was more than I paid for my truck though!

But the more I learn about watches...the more I realize Rolex is overrated :eek:

Ok, I am a watch freak and have been fascinated since the age of 5 by the complexity of their movements and their look. It is something that a lot of guys cannot explain, it is just there. If have often said that I should have been a watchmaker instead of my current profession.

Regarding Rolexes, they are excellent watches, very well built and super resistant. Rolex holds many patents and were at the forefront of some of the major advances in watch making.

However, we are talking about mass produced watches (even in the 20k range). The parts are purchased from many different suppliers as opposed to some brands that still produce and assemble everything from scratch.

10 years ago, I was visiting a watchmaker in Zurich (Zenith) and the lady at the desk kindly told me that the Rolex (submariner) I was wearing was a Volkswagen in comparison to the watches they produce. She was right #-o

Rolex is the most recognized luxury watch in the world. However, it is at the bottom of the range of luxury watches. For some serious stuff, you need to look at Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, Zenith, Concord, etc.

The say that the Rolex buyer wants people to recognize the brand. It is a symbol of their financial success. You could be sitting in an airplaine beside a guy that wears a 150K Patek and not even notice it (unless you are a watch freak like me). Those people who buy such watches often buy them for their own pleasure and not for the attention it will draw because nobody knows about them anyways.

The following link provides a classification of the most popular watches into the following categories (high end luxury, luxury, pseudo-luxury, etc.)

$20,000.00 plus for a watch

I can ask someone what time it is for free :!

I must say that I do like a nice watch, but ever since I broke my wrist, I find it hard to wear one
Plus, I would rather spend the money on bikes

O and I almost forgot
I can't afford a watch :eek:
