    JLC Polaris Geographic WT - 904847J - Limited Edition


    I really want to get this model but I'm worried about resale value, this watch is only sold in boutiques with no disccount.

    What do you guys think about value retention for this piece (most people I've talked to think this watch would make me lose money)? I would like to avoid losing a lot of money if I have to sell it in the far future for some reason, not looking to make money on resale, I just want to get an item that won't necessarly make me lose thousaunds if I have to sell.


    The watch's MSRP is US$13,800

    JLC depreciation is always going to be an issue. You really need to get this for 20-25% off retail so try to find one preowned.

    Love that watch. My favourite in the Polaris collection by a long way. The dial is a stunner. I think I’d prefer it on the rubber strap they use for the date model though as not sure about croc straps on sport watches.

    I'm finding this watch for about US$11,000 in the gray market and for about US$7,500 pre-owned... It's seems to be the case, this watch depreciates massively from the retail price.

    That’s always going to be the case with JLC (and most brands other than Rolex and PP it seems).
    Btw I’ve never seen these available used and would certainly be interested at the price you’re suggesting. If you don’t buy it let me know where you saw it for 7.5k 🙂

    Guys, I pulled the trigger on the watch in all the sources I found and all of them had it listed but didn't have it in hand at the moment, they were all BS listings.

    So I stand corrected, I haven't found this piece under retail anywhere yet.

    This is boutique only edition. I doubt you can find it anywhere else. At least not for now. I put in my order with my local boutique last May and did not get it until late October. They gave me a 5% discount, but that is really for the mall since when you make a purchase over a certain dollar amount, they give you a cash back.

    JLCs will not retain value in general, since it is not a popular brand in general. However, my personal believe is that if you are buying a watch and also worrying about the future value of it, then it loses the fun part of it. Just my opinion.

    The posibility to lose a considerable percentage of US$13,800 + TAX must be considered even if it is not fun, I'm not a ritch guy, I must think about these things, my yearly rent is WAY under the value of this watch.

    Guys, monetary retention is a big factor in the purchase of any item... I don't understand why some people think otherwise... Making decisions without the full picutre might be fun but it is foolish as well without a dubt.

    It isn't a big factor if you're not going to sell it. Of course it is understandable that for many people it is important but it shouldn't be too hard to understand why it may not be for others. People spend vast amounts on experiences, holidays, food etc which have no monetary retention. Is that foolish?

    Update:
    I have not been able to find this watch cheaper than retail anywhere from a source that actually has it.

    If you guys know of a reliable seller to get this model under retail please let me know!


    If I cannot find it under retail I will pull the trigger on it in the coming weeks, this watch is absolutely astounding in person.
