    Limited Editions: What is the NEXT most collectible edition No.?

    I have the opportunity to participate in a Limited Edition watch run and I'm hoping the illustrious members of this community could enlighten me please. Actually I'd simply be interested in anyone's reason for their choice/response so please feel free to post an explain of your decision in the thread after participating in the poll.

    Scenario:
    There is a Limited Edition (individually numbered) watch available however the very first and the very last watches are already taken so what then becomes the next most collectible/desirable edition number?

    Is it any of the First 10? 2,3,4...10?
    Is it the Last 10? x91...x97, x98, x99?
    Is it the Ton's? 100, 200, 300 etc?
    Is it the Triples? 111, 222, 333 etc?
    Is it the Clevers? Keypad code for GMT = 468 etc?
    Is it the Related? Model No = 033, movement No = 726 etc?
    It is something else? (please explain)

    Looking forward to swimming in your infinite wisdom.
    Cheers

    Biggest regret: Not purchasing an IWC Meca-Quartz Flieger Chrono when they first hit the market late 1990s and I worked in retail so could have got it wholesale.
    Thought: It's frightening how having children impacts on your watch purchasing power.

    IMHO, none.

    Unless it is a watch made by a handful of the best houses in the world and/or it is a watch where less than 100 are made it wont matter.

    No1 in my opinion because you should be the first on the list to get it

    Althou I don't agree on this but there seems to be way too much 007s out there compared to other numbers in WISdom :)

    Its been my experiance that the first and last of a production run are the only real significant numbers and as previously stated only with some of the finest producers in the market IE: Audemars,Vacheron,Patek etc.

    Any other number would only hold significance to the buyer and not neccesarily the market in general.

    I'd choose the triples...but just for the fun of it, no real technical reason!

    88 might fetch a good resale in Hong Kong. Otherwise, I don't see who would care after the single digits.
