Mailbag! Rolex vs. Ulysse Nardin; "Haute Horlogerie" Defined; Lange History; IWC Ingenieur; Moser

Subscribe to WatchUWant Watch Reviews Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpIdSH75bNfHIsryKCTzTWw Tim Mosso and David Salamanca answer your questions about watch collecting, luxury watches, and the watch industry. Today's Monday Mailbag starts with a judgment call; David selects his favorite from the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky Dweller 326934 and the Ulysses Nardin Classic Perpetual Ludwig. Can the GMT annual calendar combination best the perpetual calendar? Tim defines the amorphous concept of "high horology" or "haute horlogerie" by drawing a distinction between expensive watches, industrially produced watches, and watch that are labor-intensive to create; watches from Patek Philippe, Zenith, Armin Strom, Keyton Myrick, Jaeger Lecoultre, Vacheron Constantin, and Omega are discussed. David shares his views on the resale potential and considerations that a collector must make when purchasing a low-volume special interest timepiece from a boutique brand such as H. Moser & Cie; the Venturer Small Seconds XL Purple Haze serves as our example. A question from one viewer shines the light on the Hamilton H 10 80-hour movement, its stablemates within the Swatch Group, and its accuracy; Mido watches are discussed as an example. Tim fields a question from a user who is studying for a job interview with A. Lange & Sohne of Glashutte, Germany. Finally we consider the relative merits of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches and the IWC Ingenieur family of timepieces; are they comparable, or is there no comparison? Tim and David discuss these and other questions from watch collectors during tonight's show.
