Win a free Breitling Colt Skyracer Luxury watch buyers join Tim Mosso for an evening of discussion, debate, and thought provoking proposals concerning luxury watch collecting, watch industry events, and watch buying advice. Tim’s main thoughts tonight concern A Lange & Sohne; why hasn’t Lange joined Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin among the ranks of luxury sports watch options? The Patek Philippe Aquanaut and Nautilus have never been hotter among watch buyers; Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore are the extent of the brand’s current must-have offerings; Vacheron Constantin spent a fortune in 2016 to launch its third-generation Overseas sports watch family. But A Lange & Sohne of Germany, which many consider a peer to these Swiss watch patricians, offers only precious metal dress watches in a marketplace that cannot get enough of steel luxury sports watches. Tim considers why Lange needs a sports watch, what an A Lange & Sohne sports model might look like, and how Lange can adapt current models to a more sporting sensibility on a special edition basis. Watch collectors seeking guidance are welcome on Watches Tonight; Tim helps a viewer decide how to spend the proceeds from his sale of a Rolex GMT Master 2 116710 BLNR, the “Batman.” Tim suggests time-tested options from Zenith watches, Bulgari watches, and Carl F. Bucherer’s Patravi Scubatec. How would Tim spend $5,000 on watches if Jaeger LeCoultre were off the table? An Omega Speedmaster X-33, Zenith El Primero Rainbow Flyback, Grand Seiko SBGH051, and a Gerald Genta Arena Sport provide the answers. Are oversized watches a thing of the past? Tim investigates how watch buyer tastes have changed over the last decade. Oversized watches from Rolex (Deepsea Sea-Dweller, Yacht-Master II), Hublot’s King Power, Audemars Piguet’s 48mm Royal Oak Offshore, and the IWC Pilot’s Watch line are the subject of tonight’s reflection and analysis. Finally, Tim discusses the major luxury watch industry misfires and marketing shortfalls of 2018 today. Strategies and products including Baume & Mercier’s Clifton Club Indian Burt Monroe Tribute, Breitling’s Navitimer 8 range, Zenith’s Baselworld novelties, and the Swiss watch industry’s general lack of humor headline this segment.
