My search began with the watch I've wanted for the past 15 years, the Rolex Daytona SS. I started doing my research and was shocked to find out that while it retails for $7,900 US, but actually sells for $11,500 because of Rolex's amazing marketing prowess.
Trying to find a better deal on that watch, I enlisted the help of two acquaintances who I knew were watch experts. They gave me some pointers about where I might find good quality pre owned Daytonas, and then both gently and subtlely began to educate me on the ways of fine watches.
So began my month long journey into Pateks, VCs and APs.
In the end, the one that won my heart was the Overseas Chrono Limited Edition. They were not easy to find. At least not for any reasonable price, but I was persistent.
As I write my first post on here tonight, I am hitting the UPS tracker site over and over to follow the path that my OS is taking on its journey to me. It's due to be delivered in 12 hours.
I can't wait to I get my hands on it. If I can take some nice pictures of it, I'll post them. You all have seen this model before, but since it's going to be my most prized possession, I'll have to post some brag pictures. What is it about a fine watch that can win a grown man's heart like this?
