Perspectives. Value. 1st look at watches from $100,000USD to $1,000,000 USD. Patek vs Lange vs Greubel Forsey.

Perspectives. Value. These are CREATED by culture, we must respect the media. TRUMP is wrong to slay the media who actually created him. People see Lange and Patek. There was the 2005 to 2007 period when retail had to BEG customers to buy a Lange. But not a Patek. I respect that. The values created by the media have been used by me among many….with good intent. I want, like anyone, to win over arguments but not over the barrel of a gun. Greubel Forsey created the FIRST wave of 1,000,000 USD watches. They are only NOW, 2016 actually,...

What is NOOTROPIL?

What is NOOTROPIL?

Writers, creatives and photographers What is NOOTROPIL 1200mg tablets made by GSK? Ask. Try. Know. The medicine is NOT a suppliment. Since 1980s, it has been used with polar opinions. One thing for sure, it has shown no harm when taken at high dosesages. I wite as a layman, not as a doctor who has been on this ONE brand of Nootropic. I have been taking Nootropil made as 800mg twice daily in the years 1988 to 1999. I stopped, because I had forgotten about taking it, after a long holiday. In 2006, I began 1200mg 3 to 4x daily. It has INCREDIBLY...

SIHH 2017 a first reflection, what makes any purchase “good” and “probably the best”.

SIHH 2017 a first reflection, what makes any purchase “good” and “probably the best”.

  “Good” and “probably the best” by 2017 Looking back at decades of buying my stuff, and cleaning house in 2011…what is the best? It is the watch that I find most fascinating to photograph and use as a tool to share with the curious what makes it “good” and “probably the best”. Yes..Basel will be part 2. But in 2004, Greubel Forsey launched the DT30. Better known as the Double Tourbillon 30. Over the years, I could not with clear conscience say it, until I could afford to buy it....

Patek Philippe Calatrava 3919

Patek has 37 Calatrava models The Calatrava 3919, small but strangely wearable. Coming from me..wearing AP offshore and MB&F 1, this may sound strange. I enjoy wearing my 1986 Calatrava 3919 in white gold serves me well and marks the year of my company’s birth. 1986. Like my business, or profession, medicine…the 36mm 3919 is alive, well, enjoyed almost daily and aged zero. This picture shows you what it is today…nearly 30 years without a service. Look for a Patek Calatrava 3919 They are, these Calatrava 3919 getting more...

Tourbillons, cost in efficency, huge increases in long term resales IMHO

Tourbillons, cost in efficency, huge increases in long term resales IMHO

Tourbillons Tourbillons will always cost as much as 3 x to 10 x the price of the closest related watch in the brand. Efficiency  will take a small 5% hit. It’s because of the extra parts and mass. Long Term Resales Over any one’s guess, mine is that from 2002, to 2016…you will find GOOD buys in the used market. I bought 12 tourbillons over the last 8 years. Only 3 were brand new. I am sure of my moves. I never ever buy with INVESTMENTS as a motive. That is the secret of using your tastes, emotions and IQ to make the RIGHT...

Patek Philippe 5100 Manta rose gold sees light after 16 years

5100 reference, the GREATEST , most value for money watch made after the age of the internet. Patek’s only serious rival to Greubel Forsey. All the molds and casts were destroyed and audited. Not one useless complication. Simplicity at its best, totally Philippe DuFour and more. Beauty with zero superfluous jazz. 750 made in RG, and 1500 in yellow…both are made to own and to mean real investments. Twin barrels. 21,600 vpm….the finest uncomplicated watch ever made, and for the first time, I agree that the words Patek mean...

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1 Created between 2002 to 2005, this is the platinum piece ,of 11 maximum made. The Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1, also known as the IP 1, was first shown, or revealed in 2006 Basel to three journalists, and possibly the first collector and customs to own it later after 2010. It was the herald of the GOLDEN (or rather Platinum) AGE of the 7 figure watches that actually do deserve those halo prices. In fact, when the IP 1 was revealed, it was called the Harry Winston Opus 6. I, was then informally linked to...

Buying your ONE landmark watch that projects “YOU” and “Your Philosophy”.

Buying your ONE landmark watch that projects “YOU” and “Your Philosophy”.

Your wristwatch projects you and your philosophy of living. It does NOT HAVE TO BE proportionate to the relevance, size or budget you control, or leverage. BUT…you must NEVER underestimate the DAMAGE it can do, and it can reveal who are sincere, forgiving, honest and et cetera to you, and likewise…to others. YES. Wearing your philosophy is OPEN for those who see it. The BEST ? In every way? This era? The LANDMARK watch you own, you bought, that you project, engage in conversation, hand down…projects your philosophy or POV of...

Lange 1 Tourbillon and Greubel Tourbillon pictures from same 2008 era

Lange 1 Tourbillon versus Greubel Forsey 2008 batch The close ups using a Sony A old generation R. Lange 1 finishing versus Greubel Forsey. Both hand finished. Of course there are 10 to 30 to even possibly a 100 more Lange tourbillons that exist vs Greubel Forsey. Then again, if one is OK, willing and wishing to own the “ultimate”, there is no alternative, even smaller brands or the great PP cannot fight at this...

TAG Heuer V4 Phantom 2016 October production

TAG Heuer V4 made in 2016 October production TAG Heuer V4 watches are ALL about legends…and icons. These are era defining watches. 5 years before main lining into 2002. The V4 in all black carbon is about the most important piece. It is also my second one, the first was in gold. Extremely difficult to come by, and impossible to fake. (all the fakes have flat dials with quartz or simple 2 handed movements. I stress that this is a watch made in 2016, October and I bought it outright a few weeks back….with great difficulty. This is...
