My collection is missing a nice, simple, stainless, bracelet watch. A few years ago I purchased a Bathyscape in lieu of a Sub. Funny that at the time my AD had several option in the case and even offered a discount... boy have things changed in 3 years!
I feel like I could make the Laureato happen now and it has the heritage and quality of the Overseas... I also prefer the simplicity of the GP bracelet although there's no denying the superior craftsmanship of the overseas bracelet. The movements and case seem to be on par with little specification on paper to justify the 3x price of the Overseas. Does anyone else have either of these? I'm a modest "collector" that doesn't buy with the priority of resale or trends (Obviously, I vent BP > Rolex...) but that doesn't mean I want to knowingly take a bath on something that's not worth anything on the secondary market either. Everything I have gets enjoyed so its not like I have a bunch of perfect pieces.
Trading $$$ and brand aside - any thoughts on how these stack up on the merits of just the quality of the individual pieces alone?
Thoughts? Even open to criticisms!
