Over the time, do you still love the watch ? How's the wearability factor ? Do you wear often ?
Yes I still like it a lot. I'm not one for constant rotation so tend to wear one watch for longer periods of time. It's been in the box for a few months now, with only the odd outing, as my Carrera McLaren 1974 Edition has been getting much love.
The Pontos S was also my wedding gift so no matter how much or how little I wear it, it will never be sold.
Wow ! What an unusual choice of wedding gift. I know it might have been forever still, but congrats.
It wasn't that unusual, I chose it .
Are they worth that much??
Just amazing!! @Hubert
Amazing artisan for sure. However, ignoring the cost, I doubt I would ever do it to any of my watches.
Maybe one-day TH would do it
Given the level of individuality and customization of this artisan, projects like these would definitely go to outside companies specializing in individual bespoke projects.
That said, given the popularity of customization & personalization of luxury items, maybe one day we could see custom computer-based laser detailing and engraving produced in a larger scale.
These days you can have anything customized to how you want it!! Though your pockets have to deep enough to afford these things!
Yes; I don't even want to ask how much this costs!
Did you see the video I posted it couple of nights ago about 2 Rolex watches ?
I enjoyed the video. Although I have no idea who the protagonists were they were clearly having fun.
Like the engraving too in fact. Of course the owner could not dare wear it otherwise it would become more like this
OTOH, if you have the wherewithal to get it done once you can always have it done again.
Did the big guy with possibly a Brit accent buy the two Rolexes after his 24 hour research?
The guy with British accent he is a producer .. see his watch collection in video below .
Just watched it. You asked if they are worth that much.... My experience is to distrust salesmen, especially on second hand items. So I would say: NO.
I saw an article about these 2 watches and the price tag was for one of them £ 75000 !!
I'm not a Rolex connoisseur, but honestly I find these two models to be gauche and extravagant for my taste.
I won't buy them either!
I tried the version that comes with the steel bracelet. Lovely watch, and if there were not another 50+ watches I really wanted to have in combination with the fact that I already have a somewhat similar chronograph I would have bought it. If I get the chance to buy it for a lower price/pre-owned or something similar I am likely to give it a chance. Cool watch for sure!
This FC really blows my mind.
I think they are very underrated.
This tourbillon PERPETUAL price not far from our beloved H2T either.
