Rolex gets the night off… for the most part! Watch buyers, watch sellers, and watch collectors agree; Watches Tonight with Tim Mosso is the place to “watch,” discuss, and laugh about the hobby of luxury watch collecting. We open with a discussion of hilarious attempts to counterfeit A Lange & Sohne and Jaeger LeCoultre timepieces. A viewer’s question about the Patek Philippe 5170R leads to a clarification of Tim’s stance on this 39.4mm chronograph; it’s a viable unisex watch option, not a “ladies’ watch.” We consider the relevance of the modern Breitling Navitimer and whether Tim would advise choosing it over the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph. One viewer’s question about loupes for viewing his watch collections precipitates a surprising response; you don’t need to spend $600 on the “Loupe System for Hodinkee” in order to get a clear and detailed view of your prized Rolex Daytona sodalite dial or your Audeamars Piguet Royal Oak 15202 with caliber 2121. A standard Bausch & Lomb plastic jeweler’s loupe and headband halo will do the job for under $50 U.S. When do you want to Tonight’s show includes an extensive discussion of how to buy watches when significant others. In fact, Tim arrives armed with advice for watch collectors; these are the common mistakes frequently made when buying watches… and how to avoid them. True, marriage diplomacy requires creative solutions to ensure that a watch arrives on good terms with the entire household. But Tim also offers unconventional wisdom; don’t settle for a Breitling Colt Skyracer or a Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 when what you really want is a Rolex Submariner or an Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. Moreover, ask critical and revealing questions when buying a watch whether it’s a $100 vintage Sicura or a $50,000 Grand Seiko 8 Day Spring Drive. Finally, Tim discusses why he cannot always answer every individual email about which Omega, Breitling, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Rolex that watch buyers and watch collectors plan to purchase. All of this and watch collector wrist shots will be featured this evening on Watches Tonight!
