Either the manufacturer increases pricing to adjust the market, or the manufacturer attempts to increase production (I've heard that new facilities are being constructed, but th...

Re: State of the Market

Unless/until the Rolex/AP/PP supply chain loosens up and ADs and boutiques have stock to sell, I don't see the gray market prices on the new pieces going down at all. What blows me away when it comes to Rolex are the prices on all of the five digit models (and even some older six digit models). Giv...

Re: So what's changed in your watch-world in 2021?

Really pissed, recently misplaced the Garmin Fenix 5 I got from Nick (Nomadz) in 2017. Possibly left in the change room of the club where I store my surf ski's. Someone liked it more than me... This watch lived on my foot strap in the ocean, never cared for other than re charges and never missed a b...

Re: So, its official now - Tudor x Marine Nationale

So is this going to be an LE or regular production? My AD says they don't know, but I don't think Tudor really does LEs? I just hope it's not boutique only. edit: here's a copy/paste from WUS, supposedly the guy heard this from his AD, sounds like it could be limited for 2021 at least? This is rega...
