Re: Farer watches

Is it just me or is it slightly sad that when buying a new watch one's foremost thought is its resale value.😢 A really good point. At present I own three watches, more than I've ever owned at one time. I didn't buy one based on its resale value. I would argue that when that is your foremost though ...

Re: Farer watches

I have had a couple but moved them on. I had an Endeavour and an Endurance. Of the two i preferred the Endeavour, although i don't think that the watch straps fitted that well. I would get another but would not pay full price for it. I think the quality of the cases was pretty good and better (imo) ...

Re: Outgoing Rolex GMT master 2, but what to replace it with?

Thanks for your comments I will take a look at a couple of Tudor’s but know to my cost that le doesn’t really mean anything so will not pay over the odds. I did have a Pelagos lhd that I thought would be a winner but it wasn’t money wise that is
