I find that most people who have exquisite cars are also into some of the other finer things in life.
watches and pens seem to be the most common.
Personally I'm a Rolex sort of guy.
Ever since I started pilot training, I've had a Rolex GMT. The first was a stainless 'coke', then a 'batman' and I now have a two tone. My wife and daughters have Datejust's (wife has a diamond with Jubilee face) and my local AD estimates that I have 8-12months to go for a Daytona that I have on backorder.
My favourite watch however is a Patek 5035.
Its the same value as my GMT, but its lot more fragile, and as I'm terribly clumsy and even wear my watch when I'm doing DIY knocking down walls etc, I know it just wouldn't last. Maybe one day...
So, lets discuss what we have and why we like them.
Not a great fan of Rolex, but have a collection of TAG Heuer and more recently Bremont, having had a tour of their stunning new premises at Henley. Well worth a visit.
Local dealer have ordered one in for me. Going to see it Saturday 👍
Oooooh I like that Patek 👍
I’m currently in the market for a new timepiece. I like Heuer and can’t make my mind up between a new Carrera or a classic Monza 🤔
