Which Holy Trinity Watch Should I Buy? – AP, Patek, Vacheron Constantin + Unboxing My Latest Diver

In today’s quick video I seek the Gentry’s advice. It has been almost 2 years since my life changing experience at Harrods of London trying on the A.Lange & Sohne Langematik. And understandably, it subsequently became my long term grail watch. However, I know all to well how short life can be and before I spend that kind of money, (and get very old in the process of saving) maybe I should consider a more affordable alternative? It just so happens that recently I fell in love with a similar watch from the famous “Holy Trinity”(Patek, AP & VC) and now perhaps my plans have changed. But before I make my moves, I hand it over to the most knowledgeable and experienced watch enthusiast community of all, the Gentry! So please share and vote on your nominations in the comments.

I then conclude this video with an unboxing and first impression of my final purchase for my watch collection for 2017. A very cool diver indeed with some rather nifty design elements indeed.

“It’s a bit ridiculous, but I match my watch with my outfit.” I do this everyday!

Bowties says:

Good video, however saying the Miyota is vastly superior to the ETA is just silly. On par, maybe.

Gilbert Young says:

“Rarely”… Marvelous turquoise matte bezel. Gosh!


I know this is random but this video perfectly explains how I feel about sieko discontinueing the old cocktail time and moving it over to the presage line of watches https://youtu.be/BUS99d4NIHA

Gústaf þór says:

I propose the glashutte original panomaticlunar not in the Holy trinity but imo the perfect Moonphase dress watch aside from lange ofc

SssanL says:

Benchmark hehe

Harris van Eijk says:

iwc portugese is what you could consider.

Teachering says:

My suggestion: Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Calendar in Stainless Steel. This watch is priced under US $10,000. A beautiful piece! By the way, that is a very nice jacket. Would go well with any fine watch.

I thought he was gonna unbox a Diver from the holy trinity. Lucky I fast forward the video!! Boooooooo!

Dromatrixx says:

Maybe take a look at Panarai? i own a PAM441 and i love it to death

Ragnar Oerensson says:

Screw Holy Trinity, to me that expression doesn’t make sense at all. I’d suggest to either pick a nice JLC or rather get one of the incredible German watches from Lange or Glashütte Original (as a German I might be a little biased haha :D)

Denis says:

Hey buddy easy on the hair jokes some of us started to depart with it in early 20s 🙂 As for watch why not Omega moon watch moon phase ? Or Carl F. Bucherer Manero Moonphase ?

william Lidgett says:

i know this is not part of the topic, but i am seeing more and more videos on subscription watch company’s, what are your thoughts, mine are they are a waste of money with no real value

Can someone please tell me how the hell a lumed crown is pure class? Lol especially on a homage. I’m sure it’s a solid watch, but it’s definite a homage.

Zapparock95 says:

It is an homage

TheSpritz0 says:

TGV- Why not look into a nice Vacheron Contantin OVERSEAS?? I’ve got one, and it gets lots of compliments!!

Chris Lee - UK says:

Very Nice TGV, when you removed it from the box, I thought to myself ‘what’s up with that braclet’ then realised it has a plastic protective thing on it lol. Very cool with the lumen on the crown as well. Best Wishes

AL McL says:

All due respect to ‘the holy trinity’, but I feel it misses a few very serious & important names. Seriously urge you to coin a better collective – it actually might stick and be a great legacy. E.g. add lange and jlc. Enid Blighton managed several. Why not?
