Tim Mosso joins the online luxury watch community for a deep dive into several of Watchbox’s best pre-owned Swiss luxury watch inventory from Audemars Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Panerai, Zenith watches, Blancpain watches, Jaeger LeCoultre, and Grand Seiko watches. This episode is all about steel sports watches and steel dress watches. Patek Philippe’s Calatrava 5565A leads the line alongside a Patek Philippe 5960/1A annual calendar flyback chronograph. Audemars Piguet’s legendary Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore are present and correct. We have representatives from Rolex in the form of the Rolex Sky Dweller 326934 annual calendar GMT and Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue 116400GV. A Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox World Time flies the flag for Tim’s favorite brand, and two Zenith El Primero options bring high-beat chronographs to the table. Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe 5000 shows its versatility on a fine adobe calf strap, and we take a spin with a Grand Seiko SBGE005 Spring Drive GMT. For variety, two entries from Panerai offer an olive branch to the Paneristi; this episode features the Panerai Ferrari FER015 Perpetual Calendar and the Radiomir 1940 3-Days Acciao PAM 735. We’re holding court with live questions about luxury watches and giving away free watch related SWAG. Tonight, we’re sharing and discussing a cross-section of the best luxury watches in the Watchbox inventory. This is Watches Live, episode 12.

God, that Z blue is gorgeous! Would it go alongside a Dj41 in blue fluted jubilee in a collection or is it redundant?

Budget Watch Guy says:

Tim I must chose between a red Tudor BB or Breitling SuperOcean 42mm ii blue for my first major piece – which one?

Alfie Trindles says:

Tim – sorry I missed the show to ask the question. I note you said the 5711 is going up but didn’t mention the 5712. Have you heard any news on this being effected by the price increase? Thanks!

minibus1351 says:

Hey Tim, have you seen the new Blancpain Chinese Calendar model? What are your honest thoughts?

Bubba B says:

The man of steel show this eve, nicely done. I grinned with the remark regarding the 25% increase to set the tone of the show? Of course, “There are options”. Priceless Mosso. Mossovox? Catchy. That Zenith El Primero and it’s history is amazing, yes character. Lastly you mentioned on Monday regarding Josh and Jason having their own shows, can you elaborate. Best….

Fabi_Schwarz says:

That VC 2nd gen is my absolute favourite when it comes to the holy trinity, especially the sporty models! I just don´t understand why people let themselves get ripped off for a Nautilus when you can have this beauty for about the same price…
Amazing watch, thanks for showing Tim!

Cam M. says:

Was hoping for a 5960/1A. It is undoubtedly my grail!

Greg Mieg says:

That intro is ‘semi’ porn music at 2/3 bpm

AndréFelipe says:

Thumbs up for the “Tim Mosso LE” 😉

No One says:

That one Patek looked like a JLC… is it really that much better as the price would indicate? The JLC isn’t no slouch..

adrian diaz says:

I perched my first Rolex and it was the Milgauss black face and I love it people that now good tasty recognize it

Jake Roth says:

This show and Tim is truly amazing. One day Tim will be the CEO of a major watch brand. #markmywords

golfbuddy1969 says:

That steel sectored Patek could pass for a JLC Master Control with the sector dial…and I love it.

amirjon says:

Tim you forgot the grey ruthenium dial for the 15400! 4 dials in total!

The Marquis says:

Great show Tim!! That 5960/1a is my absolute favorite…so unlike any other Patek. Cheers!!

Michael Vetsch says:

AP Oak would be cool if there wouldn’t always be that almost ‘afterthought’ date window at 3 which, furthermore, really, looks out of place, because even the background color of the date aperture is not matching the dial. Are they actually nuts?! I am not stupid. Sorry to say!

Ant G. says:

Is there a reason the Sea-Dweller is still not listed on the Watchbox app?!?!? My Watchbox is incomplete.

Conrad Magalis says:

Tim, always so refreshing to hear real insider perspective, that isn’t based on hype of the market. You’re completely correct — so many pre-owned, amazing, unique and expressive choices that hold just as solid value as the “wait list.” My though is, unless you’re selling “the hype,” you’re going to lose out in the long-run. I love the wait list pieces, but so many options that are just as safe! The variety available is just amazing, once the veil of choice is lifted! This goes for cars and many other products. Keep enlightening and offering more than personal opinion and options for the consumer. It’s the best marketing tool for Govberg Group — just speaking the truth and education. It’s going to keep your company in the back of everyones’ minds, because it’s totally unique.

gmshadowtraders says:

The best!

JohnSmithisnotme says:

The 38mm bathyscape BP attracted me, but it uses a different movement ,1150 instead of the 1315…any thoughts of 1150 in a sport watch?

Michael Vetsch says:

Sorry, but I don’t get it: at 37:05 Claudio has commented and Tim mentions “don’t say the Q-word” or something like this. What is that? Am I stupid? And why should Tim apologize at any time or for anything during this/his excellent show. Please explain to me.
