Mailbag! Rolex v Ulysse Nardin; Driver's Watches; Patek Philippe Aquanaut or Rolex Sea-Dweller SD43?

Tim Mosso on Instagram: tim_mosso Tonight on Monday Mailbag, Tim Mosso and Jason Mane of Watchbox answer your questions about how buy luxury watches for fun and lasting satisfaction. We open with a shootout between regatta timers; it's the Rolex Yacht Master II 116680 vs. the Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta. Two steel programmable regatta chronographs with 100-meter water resistance and complicated calibers square off in the court of watch collector opinion. Our new live polling features allows watch collectors to have their say in this battle between Rolex watches of Geneva and Ulysse Nardin watches of Le Locle. Jason and Tim answer one user''s question regarding whether he should reward himself with a Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 SD43 or the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time 5164A. Should our viewer select a Rolex dive watch or a Patek Philippe dual time Aquanaut? As it happens, these watches look, feel, and function so differently that we recommend any watch buyer literally try before he buys. The question of driver's watches is raised. Does such a genre exist, or is the entire notion an outgrowth of marketing and misread history? We discuss by presenting examples of pilot's watches, such as the Rolex GMT Master, technician's watches such as the Rolex Milgauss, and dive watches such as the Omega Seamaster 300. Tim and Jason discuss alleged historic precedents including the Vacheron Constantin American 1921 and the Patek Philippe 524 to reveal a serious gap in the historical record of driver's watches; includes special appearances by the Jaeger LeCoultre E168 Geophysic and the wonderfully weird Girard Perregaux Casquette from the 1970s. Finally, we answer one user's question about moon phase watches including the Rolex Cellini Moonphase. Should he purchase this Rolex Cellini, a Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Moonphase, or an A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Moonphase; moreover, is any watch an investment, and could this be an exception. All this and wrist shots from our global network of watch collector - viewers. BUY WATCHES HERE:
