    Does anybody collect higher end watches on BHW?

    I recently bought a Tag Heuer Carrera Tachymeter and am looking to get a Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL or an IWC diver (not sure which) sometime soon. Anyone share a passion for finer watches?

    I am a Movada fanatic and a Rado fan. Hope to get a Rolex one day, but I do have a great Folex!

    I am a big fan of A. Lange & Söhne watches - They absolutely scream class and old world money!

    A. Lange, Patek, Vacheron, and Breguet, etc. are really in their own class. My jaw still drops every time I see any watch by those brands.. It is hard to not admire the craftsmanship. Idk, maybe its just me.

    Angelas- Love Movado's design. Was actually looking at a SOSF Breitling for a while but settled for a different watch. Saw a 15 year old with a ~$30k Breitling for Bentley Canal Street rep. and couldn't help but laugh.

    Would love to purchase one of these some day:

    Actually there is a big niche market for Antique Pocketwatches if anyone wants to exploit that!

    I remember seeing some auctions on ebay where one went for 6 figures from the 1800's
