Going to an estate auction, and rumors has it this man was a collector. Another rumor was it that he disowned both his son and daughter, so they aren't getting shit. According to people behind this auction the proceeds are all going to a church.

Anyways, his collection is pretty fucking impressive. Pic related is one of the least expensive in his collection. From what I've seen from pictures posted by his lawyer its pristine.

This is Bel Air, so everyone knows he has a nice collection. Fuck we have people fly in from NYC and Atlanta. I am there because I know a collector and he's taking me with him. I am hoping the people flying in wouldn't be interested in this lowly Rolex, they probably have eyes on Vintage Patek Philippes or Audemars. There's a few more Rolex's but I think this is his cheapest one. The collector I am going with told me that I should bid on the Presidential though because he messed it up adding a diamond bezel, and I could sell the bezel and replace it with a stock Rolex however the value already went to shit when he did that.

>> No.55982483

Who the hell would want to buy a diamond bezel from a Day Date? The stones aren't worth shit, and as you say, replacing parts on a Rolex tanks the value.

And even if the collectors are after the APs or Pateks, why would they leave a recent model Rolex just sitting there? Earn a quick thousand bucks flipping that and your plane ticket and hotel room are covered for the whole trip.

You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

Found a used watch I want from a seemingly reputable German seller on Chrono24 for $1000 cheaper than new.

The watch is in mint condition according to him, and I see no major scratches.

The watch was produced in 2003, but I don't know if it's been serviced or not .

It's a midrange ETA movement. Chronograph and date.

If it's not and it needs servicing, should I still get it?

The fact that it's so much cheaper concerns me.

Where I work it isn't practical to wear a watch, I'm not sure what your chances of ruining it are, but if it's high $500 is a lot of money to throw away

Fugg. I paid $500 for >>55990610 on Ebay, and that's before all the servicing and parts I got for it, and it still runs no better than -10 sec/day.
On the other hand, I don't see any king seiko 52xx specials listed on ebay for less than $500 without any major problems.
Why? I think you have me confused for someone else. There's lots of reasons to kill myself, but getting jewed on a King Seiko isn't one of them.

If you're worried about magnetism get any Sinn with the anti-magnetism technology. Or a Rolex Milgauss, of course. You can probably afford either.

I got it for ~$550 used on ebay. Original retail was like $1,200 (mine has the optional sapphire crystal & display case back so might have been more). You can get the current version (43mm) new on Jomashop for $1,300 until the sale ends.

Yes, I saw Archie's video. I eel sorry for Archie as he had a fun character going while mixing in sincere information but he lost the plot and became difficult to bear. TGV is more full of shit because he doesn't realize nobody is buying his persona and frankly he can't back any of it up even with borrowed watches to show.

Frankly I find all the videos limited in terms of real expertise.

Come December once I get my bonus pic related is probably going to be my entry into Rolex. The Sub 114060. My question is, I don't want a frankenRolex from Ebay. Can anyone recommend me a shop that is competitive, and is trusted to give me a 100% non-fucked with Rolex? I can also do local I live in LA.

>> No.56007377

Archieluxury's sponsor, Jewelersontime, is in Newport Beach.
This guy comes highly recommended by WUS: http://www.lunaroyster.com/watches
Or just browse the jewelry district downtown. If you're in doubt about a piece you can always bring it to Sam's (check on yelp) or any pure watch repair place on the same block to authenticate.

>> No.56007414

You mean 7th and Hill? I'm pretty familiar there, they sell a lot of frakenRolex unfortunately. There are deals to be had on Speedmasters, I saw one for like $1k OTD this is 90%. Sadly Speedmasters and Chronos don't do it for me.

A local, smaller jeweler where you're familiar with the owner would be ideal. Failing that, you're best off getting one direct from Rolex and avoid paying the highstreet markup.

Oh, another cunt who doesn't like reality just because he can't help but associate it with an irrelevant youtube personality who hurt another irrelevant youtube personality.

The name is pronounced like that, whether you like it or not. Making fun of it is rather immature when you don't even know the correct pronounciation.
