Mailbag! Zenith vs. Omega Chronographs; Jaeger Questions; Rolex Dials & Watch Collectors; Patek Qs

www.thewatchbox.com http://www.instagram.com/watchbox/ ' Tonight, Tim Mosso and Jason Mane discuss questions from collectors of luxury watches. The night's discussion opens with a comparison of two chronographs from watch collector favorites Omega watches and Zenith watches. After Tim offers a rundown of two compelling two-tone chronographs, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph and the Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Grande Date Full Open, Jason picks his favorite of the pair. Tim addresses not one but two questions from viewers who are considering the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2. We detail the features, durability, and everyday suitability of this oversized and over-engineered luxury chronograph. Viewers forward their questions concerning Rolex, and we consider the virtues of matte dial Rolex Sea-Dwellers vs gloss dial Rolex Sea-Dwellers. In the end, Tim opines regarding the idea of collectibility vs. wearability and why the more desirable investment Rolex may not be the one to buy. In a similar vein, Tim and Jason consider whether a dial replacement might affect the investment value of a vintage Rolex and whether the same logic applies to luxury watches as a whole. Finally, we consider two viewer questions regarding Patek Philippe sports watches. One viewer considered purchasing a large collection of TAG Heuer, Zenith, Hublot, or Jaeger LeCoultre watches in lieu of pursuing a single Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711. Our other Patek Philippe question concerns the price and long-term collectibility of a 20th anniversary Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5168G. BUY WATCHES HERE: http://www.thewatchbox.com
