Yeah, the IWC Pilots are excellent pieces. The Mark XVI is a nice looking piece, but if you have the dosh (and a bigger wrist) go for the Big Pilot (Antoine de Saint) looks freakin mint!

Not a fan of the weird looking watches haha. Some of the AP's look weird as well.

Blancpain!?!? You have a watch from a brand that sells watches from anywhere between $50,000USD to $200,000USD extremes...........?

Some of those watches are almost the value of your used 360, give or take. Pictures of said watch please.

Got my President recently serviced. Looks like new again. should do for the service price from Rolex, just like cars you have to pay the costs for servicing a quality product. Anyone here with Rolex, if so what models?

None, if I can afford one ... maybe I'll buy one when I'm older. None of its range appeals to me atm and wearing a $20,000+ watch, I could have bought a car with it. =[

To each his own though. Post some pictures of your Rolex, would love to see the whole Rolex package and not just the watch. For some odd reason, I love the whole package about watches.

You can buy Blancpain for much cheaper than that

Ballin'!!

Chopard has a $25m timepiece.



Chopard, a Switzerland located company, has released the worlds most expensive watch. It costs $25 million dollars and sports three heart-shaped diamonds in white, blue and pink as 11, 12, and 15 carats respectively. In addition to those it comes festooned in 163 carats of white and yellow flower-like diamonds.

Reminds me of that Simpsons episode with the motivational speaker "You see this watch, it's so jam packed with precious jewels, that the hands don't even move"

$25 million for a watch ... I'd buy a yacht instead.

$200,000 for a watch ... I'd buy/save for a 911 instead.

$50,000 for a watch ... I'd buy/save for a E46 M3 instead.

$10,000 for a watch ... I'd buy/save for a HPF turbo kit.

$5,000 for a watch ... already over kill. I'd buy some wheels.

Then again, there are some serious watch lovers out there.

I think your somewhat missing the point, as i'd virtually guarantee that the people who are spending the amounts you've listed on watches ALREADY own the items you've listed as the things you'd buy instead

Yep - usually a baller ( like Dwayne ) who has an expensive watch has many other prestige items. Dwayne is such a fvcking baller.
