Mailbag! Patek Philippe v Breguet; Vacheron's Relevance? Dive Watches & Engineer Watches

Follow tim_mosso on Instagram! Our poll: Tonight, Tim Mosso talks luxury watches for watch collectors and luxury watch buyers. We open our program with a showdown between Patek Philippe and Breguet -- established names in luxury watches but very different approaches to the luxury sports watch. Baselworld 2018 brought watch collectors a new Breguet Marine Automatic, the Breguet 5517 in titanium. Patek Philippe’s long-running Aquanaut 5167A counters the Breguet Marine’s advanced caliber 777A and unique titanium case with impeccable movement finish, proven resale value, and the peerless brand standing of the Patek Philippe name. Questions from watch buyers concerning Vacheron Constantin come to the fore as Tim previews his upcoming mono-brand “Monday Mailbag: Vacheron Constantin” watch collector’s special. A question from a user seeking a dive watch leads to a discussion of alternatives to the Rolex Submariner – especially the 116610. A collection of alternatives is proposed, and it includes the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Navy SEALs Automatic, the Chopard LUC Pro One Diver, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, and the Grand Seiko SBGA031 Spring Drive Diver. Finally, Tim takes a graduation-bound engineering student on a tour of IWC Ingenieur models that might make the perfect graduation gift from his family. Finally, Tim shares wrist shots of watches from our global audience of watch collectors; watches shared include a Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control, a Panerai Luminor Marina PAM 422, an FP Journe Chronometre Blue, and a classic Omega Seamaster 300M 2531.80.00, the famed “James Bond Seamaster” from most of Pierce Brosnan’s turns as 007.
