Mechanical watches are superfluous these days (like port) but while old men exist they have a diminishing bid.

I'm forever eyeing up a Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute. By value pretty low bid BUT it has a slide rule and you can't ever claim to miss a meeting from that nostalgic jet lag.

The secondary watch market is probably due for a crash. I'd love to short a Patek, if only I could find borrows..

I used to like Breitling, but it's too damn loud. Moonwatch doesn't get old so fast if you wanted a space theme.

I used to carry a Pickett N525-ES into client meetings when I was doing consulting. Great for back of the envelope error calculations, and the log scale is useful for price estimates.

All day long, not just watches old boy, merely retail lag. If you want a secondary Patek Calatrava I'll make you USD 1150/1450 9m forward.

How about a 460? USD 8K/11K.

I remember in the last crisis 911s halved in price. That was scratching what this will be.
