Well, this one is off to a new owner Monday. It lived most of its life in the safe deposit box. While I will miss it, I found it a little too flash on my wrist, but at the end of the day, when someone offers you triple what you paid, it is hard to say no.

I find myself wearing my vintage SD and 1675 over everything else. Perhaps 2 or 3 watches are ample. lol

@QuantumMechanic   Triple??  That’s great for you!  Really don’t know how much longer this trend is going to go.

@goosehd The prices will hold. They will fluctuate, but Rolex is following the Hermes model of scarcity. Panerai should have done the same. It all went sideways for them after Bonati left, but I digress. Just a somewhat annoyed collector. :)

I have been collecting for a long time. A long time. I remember when you could walk into an AD and have a decent selection of Rolex sports watches, and if you were a good client, you could get some points taken off the price. If you built a proper relationship with the AD, you'd be offered the "rare" Daytona. Now, everything is a Daytona.

Collecting watches was fun, but it has lost its appeal.

Enjoy your watches!

Lots of "luxury sport watches" coming out these days, as everyone else already noticed. I find those very compelling and I happen to have a couple coming my way in the next couple months (hopefully).

The just announced Lang & Heyne Hektor is a cool variation, although maybe overpriced given the hand wound movement...

I love it, really. This is my third piece, had the first gen. in black, when blue came it was instant love, than I had a watches-off period and 2,5 yrs ago it came back and I bought these and never had on my mind sale of them. They are from technical and design point of view for me absolutely perfect

The Pelagos is a lovely looking watch. It looks the part of a tool watch without being clunky.

Yeah, the blue is where it's at in my opinion, @Moty. All of the watch-obsessed folk on Hodinkee/other watch forums always talk about getting one of these and never quite do so. From what I understand, these watches very well and can take a beating. Plus, the design is simply perfect and, again, that blue is beautiful. If I were to buy a modern day diver, I'd have to say that it would be a blue Pelagos.

So true, it is such an universal watch, you can wear with jeans, suit or swimsuit
