Tonight, Tim Mosso and Josh Thanos discuss a Rolex vs. Breitling watch “This-or-That,” and we look back to the decade of the 2000 for important and interesting luxury watch options that will be tomorrow’s collectibles but aren’t quite ready to become investment-grade watches. The 2000s can be considered the decade when luxury watches as a class came of age, For watch brands, the 1970s were about survival; the 1980s were about transition, and the 1990s saw the beginning of a watch industry recovery-in-earnest. In contrast, the 2000s were the era when luxury watch culture and selection exploded. Independent watch brands, mass production of grand complications (especially tourbillons), rubber-strap mania, and oversized watches ruled the retail circuit as prices soared and production volumes exploded. The result was a mixed bag of watches that spanned a spectrum from sublime to silly. Tim and Brian discuss important watches from the era, investment-grade options from Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, F.P. Journe, and others. Moreover, we discuss the difference between a collectible luxury watch and an investment-grade luxury timepiece. Finally we pick our favorite independent watch brands including F.P. Journe, Lange & Heyne, Ressence, and Moser & Cie.
