I wonder how you approach life. Find wife is it find rich man daughter and hope to get return? Buy dog is it to breed and sell off puppies? Buy food is it to see how much sai you produce and sell off as fertiliser?

don't call yourself a watch collector ever. If you have this hobby with investment mindset, you are damn dumb. Easier to buy stocks and make from there.
I do buy and sell stocks too. I also buy and sell property, but not recently.

However I also like watches and have been buying and selling them for the past 20 years.

Is it such a crime to not want to lose out in your hobby? Is it a crime to want to come up on top in your hobby?

Must sacrifice for passion then can be considered a watch fan/collector/purist is it? That makes no sense what.

It's like saying a musician or an artist cannot sell commercially and make money, otherwise he/she will be considered a sellout, a charlatan, because not pure and honest enough for his/her craft. That's nonsense.

Wa wa people watch fan wor but at the first sight of losing money, immediately write them off as losers.

I will say it again la, he is the kind that sees spending on hobby as a sacrifice & not as enjoyment, that’s why he cannot stomach the loss.
But he still want to haolian on watches, so he jjww on why he will only buy certain brands.

I think once he sees his kids no talent to earn money immediately put up for adoption.

Why are you looking at it as a competition though? It's not a race and there's no top or bottom. You come out top against who? Then so what if i die die only like panerai? Dont buy meh. No what, watch market so unpredictable. Just buy what you love and enjoy wearing, can hold value or appreciate then shiok lah.

I do buy and sell stocks too. I also buy and sell property, but not recently.

However I also like watches and have been buying and selling them for the past 20 years.

You do the math lor.

Anyway, it's good for you since you're already into AP. But yours is the 41mm one, may be good for you, but market doesn't like it as much as the 39mm one. Nevertheless, your 41mm chrono value will also appreciate in 2029 lah, give and take some fluctuation in between these years because of the high possibility of a global financial crisis.

If I were you, I would keep your 41mm ROC anniversary model, and fire sale the other watches ASAP while the going is still good, and buy a pre-owned AP at bargain price when sentiments turn bad.. which seems pretty soon
Lol sorry I not you.
Don't need your advice on watches lol

For some, even the price double also won't sell
Why?
Because you may not ever get it again
Or
Price is going up. Then have seller remorse.
Or
The watch have sentimental value
Or
He just likes it. Money is secondary.

I seriously dun understand why watch thread can become a stock thread.. Talk about value talk about price increase price decrease. Watch u wear should be watch u enjoy looking at it.. Looking at it for time...

Not watch u buy just to keep value and pray value increase... U want to do that, might as well buy bonds buy financial instruments.. For that.. Go to the correct thread and stop being an arse here...

Happy owner of a tudor here.. Bought it not becos of the value.. Bought it becos I love the look the size and I am happy looking at it on my wrist when I want to know the time...

I also think even kid has talent there will be a 20+% APR to ensure ROI.
Being a spouse also stress, canít imagine what determines value
