    If I had the patience I’d buy two and sell one off. They’re almost double retail on the grey market over here.

    Get a Casio for less than an Ayrton when they're on offer.

    I wouldn't worry about the depreciation of a quality watch. If you get the pleasure of wearing it then the depreciation is offset. I bought my first Sub 20 years ago for £2.5k and sold it for £4k after 15 years. I've bought others since and providing they're not abused and serviced as required, some have held their price, others have appreciated due to market demands. Depreciation only comes into it when you're buying fashion brandname tat. By the best you can afford, even if it means saving a little for it.

    ps. I think the Batman boat has sailed.

  10. Personally I don't like the styling of Rolex and Tudor, but each to their own.

    I have an Omega Seamaster 300m (James Bond watch - not the special edition), a Speedmaster (Moon watch) and for sub £500 a Bulova Lunar Pilot (the other Moon watch) - which is my everyday watch. All three keep great time. However the Tag Heuer Carrera I had kept horrific time and at the end of the day they are watches.

    Fancied a rolex for years now so I started hoying a bit cash to one side every so often. Now having saved up a canny little pot (and being better off than I was back then) I could treat myself.
    However, now I just can't bring myself to go and spend that much on a watch.

    Just a plain old sub. Blole at work wore one day in day out, long before this celebrity bling culture and I always thought it just sat well and looked quality.

    I have the Omega MoonWatch. Really nice.

    Wouldn’t buy a Tudor.

    Don't think of it as spending. Think of it as storing the money in something that will give you pleasure instead of the bank (at sod-all %). Buy an excellent/mint condition 2 year old or newer, with box and papers, (a must, don't have, don't buy) and it will take care of itself. Should you need to recoup the money it's easily sellable and you'll lose very little on it. Don't spend your time wishing you had a Rolex. Buy one or forget it.

    I'm now getting ads for Tudor watches on Instagram. Thanks but no thanks.

    Theres still a decent waiting time for them I believe.

    A mate has been on the waiting list for six months now and still no luck

    Spend the extra and invest in a Rolex. You won't regret it. I bought my Submariner 'Kermit' in 2007 for just over 3k and some of them are now going for 4 or 5 times that amount.

    They've done well. £11k to £14k now. Serious money. I've always been afraid of colour in a watch. In case I wake up one morning and discover I don't like green or blue, or something.
