Yes, I have noticed the lack of new Daytona's available and the increase in price...I suppose I will just wait because in that price range there a few other watches I would prefer. Ive already told the better half that after we own a lake house my next watch will either be a Patek or a AP.
The IWC I purchased is the 42mm, black face, 7 day reserve. I have a 42mm Panerai that just "just" fits. I know I cant go bigger than 42. If it doesnt fit, then I make purchase the Ingeneur, 41mm, 18K gold, black face. The wife isnt sold on gold however....and Im not sure either.
W+A, do you buy previous owned typically? If so, whom do you trust? All my purchases have been new. My other issue is we do not have any high end watch stores within a 60 mile radius, so Im restricted to ordering online direct.
Any other suggestions?
