Love school holidays..

Felt like giving a price list, battery this amount, sapphire this amount, stem this amount, crown this amount.

He think people sell watch like mixed rice or nasi padang.

They should issue more 40mm size to compete with swiss brand.
But new seiko getting less value for money, all the prospex line is above 1-1.2k with not much upgrade from previous version.

i got this brand new at 6k+
so that's why 8k i also don't want. overpriced, let alone 12k.

12k might as well buy sub no-date preowned
i am giving proper advice, don't because its discontinued means its worth double the price, especially its not brand new.

even with 8k, i can get better watches than that rolex OP, boring watch, wore for 12 hours and i sold it at a loss.

it's not a diss so don't take it the wrong way.

Yep agree, still an overpriced watch. What would you recommend for a first Rolex then? Was eyeing the explorer mk1 or the Airking at retail pricing.

depends on budget.

even explorer 1 214270 already above 10k for brand new.
however the 114270 still affordable, way better buy than the op39.

if you have more than 10k budget, used sub/sub date your best bet.

below 10k, if die die want rolex, explorer 2 polar 16570 (still floating around below 10, no box and papers)
explorer 1 like you mentioned.

i just feel for starters, you never know what you actually like till you own it, so getting these rolexes would be a good starting point and if you want to sell it, it's pretty easy and you don't take a big hit.

my first rolex was a 16610, traded for a 1680, went back to 114060 and.... lol now left with SD4K only.

appreciate the advice ,not sure if i should get a prewoned one without B&P since it is harder to sell it later on or few years later if I upgrade. I know there are people who wont buy a rolex without B&P for non vintage models.

Really depends.
People are always willing if the price is right.

Never expected myself to buy a Zenith watch. I love how fitting it is and the titanium bracelet is really beautifully done. Feels very light on hand due to full titanium used.

My friend got himself a Omega Sapphire Sandwich. Heard omega is coming out an improved model next year. Current model out of stock everywhere.

All these model can't be bought at AD price. Unless you want to pay a premium for it.

Hi guys, does anyone have any recommendation on where's a good place to punch holes into my leather watch strap?

Thank you in advance!

C_boliao 25-11-2020 10:35 PM

Isit worth to buy? Manual wind though. Kind of interesting

I think it's a good watch. Iconic Omega watch. But I find it abit boring. The 50th anniversary apollo interest me though. Nice colour to the speedmaster but quite ex.

The SE told me that the new sandwich will hit 5 figures. Friend got the sapphire sandwich at 13%

The sales guy say no discount n cost 7k+ for the normal ones. Sapphire screen cost 2k more.

I saw on Lazada selling 6k+ for the normal ones

Got. About 10k to 11k. I find the colour quite boring too.

Any resale value to this watch?

boutique no discount for the moonwatch? :eek: wow.

anyway most ADs no stock for the moonwatch already except probably a couple of sapphire left.

strong rumours is that new moonwatch will be on the new calibre 3861 and price will increase.

can push higher than 13%.

but now probably stocks very limited already, many places not stocking in the moonwatch.

yup so for now honestly if keen on moonwatch and if still can find in ADs, can really consider.

most hesalite is all no stocks already, friend wanna get a hesalite also cannot find.

try negotiate for 15% and above in ADs, definitely do-able.

depends on salesperson. i would personally never buy from boutiques, makes no sense. unless you hardcore collector, boutique will usually have goodies that they will offer u before giving to the public
