Am going to look-look and check-check the prices!

Hmmm, maybe a touch-touch would not hurt! It may just heighten the desire to purchase!

Wife just gave the "ok" sign ... not totally but to that effect, so, can look, see, touch and maybe got the chance to BUY!

I really love today! Its indeed a nice day!

I heard $50k for the Lange Zeitwerk. Features "jump hour" and of course in house manual wind movement with a sapphire crystal back to appreciate the workmanship. I think Platinum may be even more $$$ as it usually is with Lange. For the horology fans, here is some in depth info on the watch http://www.worldtempus.com/en/news/w...ehne-zeitwerk/

Used to collect watches both vintage and complicated.
Pictured below is my favorite watch - a Patek Phillipe Perpetual Calendar with Chronograph, ref. 3970ep.
Picture borrowed from the Bay.

Bought the watch in 1994 and still have it, sitting in the safe deposit box, used to wear it daily.



Current daily wear is the Rolex Bubbleback in 14k pink gold, circa 1945. Poorly photographed, very nice looking with nice patina in real life.


Other favorites are

Classic, vintage 1970s, Cartier Tank Louise in 18k yellow gold with extra flat Piguet manual wind movement. Love the classic look, rather small by today's standard. I actually own two of these.


Then there is this 1950s, Omega Moonphase in 18k pink gold. I need to learn how to take picture, the picture does not come out right. Subltle two tone dial.


Can't forget this Art Deco era, circa 1945, Ladies Patek with articulate lugs in 18k pink gold belongs to my wife.




Other watches include vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Catier Tank Americaine - hommage to Tank Cintre, Rolex Milguass Anniversay with Green Glass. Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso. Used to own a few other Patek Perpetual Calendar watches but sold them as they rarely got any wrist time. Can't seem to part with the Patek 3970ep though. Bought and sold quite a few watches during the last 25 years.

My favorite brands are Rolex Subs, IWC and Panerai.

Started in 1990 with TAG divers, Breitling Chronomat and Omega Seamaster...still have and wear occasionally. Wore these happily for over 10 years

Then came the original Rolex SeaDweller (still one of my favorites) and the "green sub" (Kermit)

At that time...i thought 40mm subs were huge...and again was satisfied for another 10 years

While I kept all of these....I bought a PAM243 for my 40th( and a C4S to go with it) and now wear 44mm almost exclusively

Over the last year...I added the IWC Big Pilot...awesome, the Rolex Deep Sea (a little top heavy) and the PAM317...carbon with coated movement. The 317...is my favorite...but the 243 gets the most wrist time.

I find it impossible to get rid of any...unfortunately my winder only works on 4 at a time.

I sport an Omega Seamaster Chrono, Breitling Navitimer, and, most recently, an Oris Pro Diver Date. I love big, chunky watches. Any suggestions for similar pieces?
