My good friend and I recently attended the Wind-Up Watch Fair in San Francisco. We had an awesome time... Everyone was very amenable, welcoming and downright cool. While driving back to Northern CA, my buddy and I were talking.
“What’s your 3 watch collection?” he asked.
“What’s my budget?” I replied.
“NO BUDGET!” he shouted.
We had fun discussing the various Pateks, vintage Rolex, APs we would run out and buy.. but the question left me uneasy so we settled on a $200k fictional budget. Patek Philippe Moonphase grand compli..etc… Nautilus 71bla bla, maybe a Daytona for everyday wear.. This fictional scenario wasn’t THAT entertaining. Maybe because it was so out of the realm of possibility? I’m not sure.
He sensed my frustration and flipped the tables on the conversation... “OK what’s your Ten watch collection for only $10,000?” That question had us going for quite some time!
So, what is your 10 watch collection for only 10K? Factoring in second hand prices is acceptable. I’d love to hear your responses.
