Collecting watches

A Sydney based watch dealer, Nicholas Hacko, runs through some of the brands that are available at each price point along with some of the emotions that follow upon reaching each one.

An excerpt of the post:

$2000 – $3000

Welcome to the world of fine mass produced watches! Well, you’ve just arrived so don’t get too cocky. This is really a ‘wearer’s market’ – you are buying watch to wear, enjoy and be proud of. Smart choice: fine pre-owned stock in 9.5/10 condition or better. Unwanted gifts. Demonstrators. Overhauled stock – maybe a last year’s model, but still in like new condition.

This is Omega’s territory: Moon watches, limited editions, Seamaster chronographs, smart Aqua Terras, dress, casual, sporty – plenty to chose from. A kind of stuff you would wear in office or with an Armani suit. Stuff that will impress any Holden or Ford owner, stuff that makes your boss (who still wears a 20 year old plastic Qantas el-chipo) look like a character from Summer Heights High).
