    Wow that's insane. The non-limited edition GMW is "just" $550 to $600 on Amazon. And that one's still too expensive for me. :p

    Hi folks. Planning to buy a second-hand Panerai from an online seller. Any tips on how to authenticate the watch. The Seller will be giving me the entire set complete with box, manuals, receipts, etc. Do Panerai watches have serial numbers in the watch itself so I can determine if the serial number matches the one on the receipt and the warranty card. I called Panerai Singapore. They told me that they can authentic the watch but I have to pay 350 Euros and wait for 3 months as they need to bring the watch in Switzerland for authentication.

    Just amazing how vintage IWC watches can take your breath away. This 1960 Swiss automatic is 35mm and comes with dauphine hands and the quintessential IWC full script under its applied logo.

    Sets me back to more than an iPhone XS Max when it came out.

    But how much will the iPhone XS Max be worth in 5 years? I’d guess the IWC will hold its value, but not the phone

    This Speedmaster is being offered for sale at almost the same price as the IWC manual up there. It’s a rare blue sunburst dial from 1993, 39mm and auto, and it’s a great catch.
