Wow. Didn't know much about watches or ever owned anything prior and you straight go to AP and PP. A little unbelievable.
Most watch nut will start from something on the lower end and build up to the holy trinity. You go straight in.
The top end ones hold better value.. Not just as a % but in terms of absolute value I think ive mentioned before, my personal take is to firstly consider value retention or even potential, followed by asethetics, legacy, accuracy etc etc.

For some reason, I find the Speedy quite comfy. Could be the weight.

Waiting for a few straps to arrive to pair with this piece.

2nd JLC event with sincere watches.
Talked to the managing director of JLC Asia. Great guy! No airs or whatsoever. Even asked for a photo with us at the booth. He even went the extend to teach my friend how to set his jlc master compressor geographic.
Asked me to send him a link for uncle seiko tropic rubber strap because it's on my deepsea alarm and he thinks it's nice. Said it's a great watch and hard to find one at a great price. Keeper liao. JLC MD say Satki.
He say he's a watch lover and not only buy jlc becsuse he's with jlc, he is interested in all watchmakers, keeping a open mind and can learn more from other brands.

Then I got this after the event. Got it at a good price and it was available. No 3 months wait.
Nice! JLC servicing costs scare me though.

The Speedy Pro looks good on you bro.

In case you want more straps: B&R Bands running a discount on Horween until 30 July: https://www.instagram.com/p/BltZP3DAEoH/

The Chicago Tan Horween Chromexcel looks damn delicious.

I think so. I think if someone wanna own a speedy.
Go for the speedy pro. The price difference isn't that much to start with.
That's the only speedmaster you will ever need to own if you only need one.
My exact sentiments as well. My personal advice - Go Pro or go home.

Why never buy as your first watch if value retention is your first consideration when it comes to timepiece?

Rolex wins AP and PP in value retention.

Thanks! I actually prefer no date as I rotate a fair bit. But sometimes I buy watch with date cos I feel that most people like date, if want to sell it might be easier.

Ya, proportion is standard, just that the watch is expensive so absolute sum involved is also high.

Maybe in the future. I quite like the looks of the Reverso.
