Rolex Daytona: Bubble Vs Vintage; One Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A or a Full Watch Collection?

Win an Omega Seamaster Railmaster: http://swee.ps/JiywlQRMT Tim Mosso and Watches Tonight return with a program of luxury watch discussion, analysis, and entertainment above all. Watch collectors and watch buyers tonight will be offered a breakdown of the Rolex Daytona marketplace as it applies to vintage Rolex Daytona 16520s from the 1990s and current production Cosmograph Daytona 116500LN models. For good measure, we consider several instances of Omega watches, Audemars Piguet, Rolex watches, and Panerai watches that became value bubbles and later burst. Tim reviews the most over-used words in the watch world; never let somebody tell you that a luxury watch is an “investment.” Finally, we investigate whether a collector would be best advised to spend a budget of $40,000 on one Patek Philippe Aquanaut or a small collection of sports, dress, and complicated watches. Today, the Patek Philippe Nautilus and Aquanaut, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Rolex Submariner, Daytona, GMT-Master, and Sky-Dweller can be cited as examples of value bubbles. These watches are waitlisted at authorized dealers and priced at a premium preowned. Tim considers the examples of several previous watches that witnessed early value spikes followed by regression; the Panerai Luminor 1950 8-Days PAM 203 of 2005, the Rolex Milgauss GV of 2007, the Audemars Piguet Millenary 4101 of 2011, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon in 2013, the Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon in 2014, the Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600 of 2014, and the possible fate that awaits today’s stainless steel Rolex Sky-Dweller 326934. Tim spends a great deal of his time reading about watches; these are the most over-used words in the luxury watch world: “icon,” “bold,” “patina,” “investment,” “Gerald Genta,” "In-house movements,””Deployment.” Tonight, we put these bromides to bed for good… or, at least, for now. Finally, Tim investigates the age-old watch collector challenge of deciding whether to spend a substantial sum on a single monstrous watch (Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A-001) or an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Sinn 103 SA BE (103.171), Rolex Milgauss GV Z Blue 116400GV, Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso, and 2019 Omega Seamaster Diver 300m black ceramic.
