Patek Philippe, Rolex & Sobriety; Yellow Gold Revival & Vacheron Constantin

Luxury watch collectors, watch enthusiasts, and watch buyers join Tim Mosso for an evening of narrative, analysis, and humor from the world of luxury timepieces. Tim opens with a focus on trends that must end including vintage watch auction bubbles (Rolex, Omega, Jaeger LeCoultre), and price inflation of pre-owned Rolex Submariner, Daytona and many Patek Philippe vintage models; Rolex Daytona and Patek Philippe Nautilus market bubbles. Tim dives into the most animated complicated watches in honor of animated dinosaurs and animated superheroes’ collective dominance of the U.S. film box office. Tim reviews complications including the Seiko Sportura Kinetic Chronograph, the FP Journe Centigraphe Sport, the FP Journe Vagabondage 3, the Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronograph, the A Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Striking, the MCT Sequential Two S200 US edition, and the Zenith Defy El Primero 21. Patek Philippe movements including the caliber 324, caliber 215, and caliber 240 are scrutinized for their lack of hacking seconds function; does it matter, and is this price-appropriate? A user askes whether watches in white gold and platinum are a waste of money; is there any reason to choose a white precious metal over steel or titanium? Finally, we discuss the possible comeback of yellow gold as a mainstream choice for watch buyers. In spite of efforts from Rolex (GMT, Submariner, Daytona), Audemars Piguet (Royal Oak, Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar), and A Lange & Sohne (Lange 1, Saxonia), it falls to Vacheron Constantin to take up the mantle of the most famous and traditional gold of them all. Beyond the Vacheron Constantin Overseas lies a world of possibilities within the realm of traditional dress watches.
