    Nice watch, I have a mid size two tone gold face Rolex, Yacht Master. The 40MM size watch does look good on my wrist. I am a Gemologist here in the Diamond District NYC. If you still have money left over after purchasing the RS and need another watch let me.

    When I was window shopping in Munich last month while on vacation, we saw watches of ridiculous money. the most expensive one we saw was 200,000 euros. WTF? I would like a nice watch but i dont think I could see myself spending more and 2 or 3 grand on one.

    They go higher

    The thing to remember about watches like these is that they can take years to make. My Avatar is a A.Lange Datograph and it is one persons job to polish one gear on the watch which can take up to a week per gear. They have many gears lol.

    Watches that cost a lot of money are usually good investments, there is a very large classic watch market so if you have the money it's not like you're throwing it away if you're buying a very high quality watch, especially if it has precious metals or stones on it.

    Even something like a Rolex is a good investment as they raise the price on their watches 3 times a year. I can remember when the Deep Sea came out and to what it is now, well used ones are going for what they use to be new.

    As Patek would say "You never own a Patek Philippe, you merely look after it for the next generation" The service costs may get you though
