Watches Tonight with Tim Mosso is YouTube’s top luxury watch livestream for watch buyers, watch collectors, and watch enthusiasts. Tonight, we tackle few but pointed topics including Rolex watch waitlists, the same for Patek Philippe, and – more broadly – when to wait for a watch and when to indulge. Tim offers a few points of advice concerning dress watches that can be used for swimming, and we tackle a one-man forensic firefight in the “Trial of Richard Mille.”
Authorized dealers of Rolex and Patek Philippe watches are meeting client requests with tales of months long or years long waits. Popular models like the Rolex Daytona, Rolex GMT Master II, and Rolex Submariner are scarce in boutique showrooms. Dealers can only promise a place in the queue for watch buyers seeking satisfaction; the situation only deteriorates if watch collectors are seeking stainless steel versions of Rolex sports watches.
It’s the same situation at the Patek Philippe dealer. Requests for popular models such as the Nautilus 5711/1A, Aquanaut 5167A, and Nautilus 5712A result in promises of a phone call six, twelve, or even eighteen months later. It goes without saying that nobody gets a discount.
What is a watch collector to do? Tim suggests that a few moments of self-reflection can assist watch buyers trying to decide between a disciplined wait and instant gratification. Have you saved cash for the watch? Are you interested in a style, a brand, or a specific model? Have you thoroughly investigated alternatives from other watch brands and model lines? Is the value of a surrogate watch plus the time saved more compelling than the eventual purchase of a delayed Rolec or Patek Philippe?
A viewer queries Tim regarding water resistant dress watches, and Tim offers examples from several of his favorite brands. The Sinn 910 Anniversary rattrapante chronograph is a complicated watch with simple appeal and 100-meter water resistance. A Rolex Day Date easily withstands common water sports, and its rugged base caliber shares architecture with Rolex’s sports watches. Omega offers compelling options from the De Ville collection. Tim reviews his favorites in the course of the discussion.
Finally, our main feature includes a trial of Richard Mille watches. Tim plays both prosecution and defense in a spirited review of the virtues and sins of modern horology’s most controversial watch brand. From the RM011 to Rafael Nadal’s RM027 to Pablo MacDonough’s RM053, we review the watches, warts, and winning formula of Richard Mille all in a one-man Lincoln Douglas forensic spectacular worthy of Perry Mason. If he collected watches.
