After a bit of consolidation, and maybe a little more coming soon, my watch fund is pretty substantial.
I think I told some of you I was eyeing the Duometre, MUT Gold Moon, and Lange Saxonia Moon. All more than easily within my reach now but not sure if I want to do it.
I brought my wife to the dealer to look at the Duometre, I loved it again, and my wife, while not completely sold, agreed it's a nice piece.
The salesman said he would "call me back while I was at happy hour" that same day, but he never did. I was asking for a better bargain with a wire instead of a credit card purchase. He never called me back. I forgot about it, but then emailed him after a couple of days, he never emailed me back.
I am a bit sour about it now, sorry if that is immature.
Any-who, I think I might just build the watch fund a bit more over the next year.
If I wait, i'll likely be within reach of a Zeitwerk date, and maybe even pull the trigger on the next VC Ultrathin Overseas, in gold or steal, if VC ever decides to come out with it.
SO - what are your thoughts on the Zeitwerk date?
I am going to probably hold onto my 1931 Chocolate, Rose Gold Master Geographic, BVLGARI Ceramic Octo Finissimo, Cartier Diver (horrible depreciation), and Cartier MC Chrono (horrible depreciation).
I feel a Zeitwerk would be a good round out to my collection for some years, until I win the lotto or get some big windfall I was not expecting.
