046: Rolex & Patek Philippe - Will the Bubble Pop?

April 25, 2019

Will the Rolex and Patek Philippe bubble ever pop? As of today's date (4/25/2019), Patek Philippe and Rolex stainless steel sports watches are selling in the secondary market for incomprehensible premiums. Are the prices of Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Audemars Piguet ever going to slow down?

On today's episode of the Trading Desk, Jason and Josh evaluate the secondary market prices we're seeing for certain models from Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and F.P. Journe. The prices were seeing are well above retail, and the issue of getting new models at retail from your AD is near impossible. The craziest part? We're talking stainless steel sports watches! Not precious metal, dress watches. Sports watches...

More specifically, they'll be analyzing the Rolex Daytona (116520), Patek Philippe Aquanaut (5167a), Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph (5980/1a-001), Patek Philippe Nautilus (5711/1a-010), Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (15400st), Omega Speedmaster Snoopy Moonwatch (311.32.42.30.04.003), and the F.P.

043: Lange or Patek?

April 4, 2019

Patek Philippe OR A. Lange & Söhne? When it comes to quality of finishing, case and movement materials, and accuracy -- which brand does it better? Lange or Patek?

In this episode, Jason and Josh are going to do side by side comparisons to highlight key differences between Patek Philippe and Lange finishing techniques. They'll also analyze secondary market value of both brands and mention some of the hotter watches from these brands as of 2019.

Would you rather rock the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual (410.032E) or the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar (5270R-001)? How about the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk (140.029) or the Patek Philippe Nautilus (5712G-001)?
