There Are 11 Stages To Buy A Watch? See Where You Are

A few days ago, a foreign watch friend sent a picture, and the 11 stages of playing the watch were widely circulated. As soon as this picture came out, there was a long discussion in the group. In fact, after looking at it for a while, I found that I couldn’t find my corresponding stage at all, and from the predictable future, there should be no place for me. This picture represents a part of the typical watch fans’ spending experience, but most of us are essentially ordinary consumers (the vast majority of people will not even step into the field of antique watches in their lifetime), so strictly speaking, there is basically no possibility Informative. However, everyone has their own process of buying a watch. This is a more interesting topic. Today, I might as well listen to the rabbit to analyze it. On this issue, I have specially communicated with two representative readers. The first one is a collector’s class (we call it King of Labor), there are about 40 or 50 antique Rolexes (including a Paul Newman Daytona that currently costs almost 2 million). After finishing talking last night, he went smoothly. Photographed a watch I was wearing. He said that buying a watch was very simple and clear. The first watch in life was Cartier, which was bought more than ten years ago. Then he immediately started to buy Rolex, and the Green Water Ghost got started. Coupled with a period of business travel in the United States, King of Labor was greatly influenced by the antique watch circle, so bypassing many stages, directly into the arms of antique Rolex, until today. ‘From the current point of view, I basically stay at this stage, unless there are particularly good new watches, otherwise there will not be much breakthrough.’ He said. Of course, the most important point is that, as an antique watch player, he never had the so-called ‘aware that watch products are deceiving’ stage. , There is no such problem. ‘This is very important, I will say next. Second reader Sam, it’s crazy to buy a new watch. ‘The first piece of my life is Omega. I remember hesitating at the counter for an hour when I bought it.’ I guess he didn’t expect it because the office was on the side of a jewellery street, and he was walking around at noon. Then the shoes got wet. After another dozen fights, the money is getting faster and faster. ‘Later, I started to buy Cartier, Tudor, Jaeger-LeCoultre …’ Rolex is also a difficult stage to bypass. Starting from the first DJ log type, Sam went to pack to buy labor At this stage, Black Water Ghost, Green Water Ghost, Explorer II, Sea Envoy, Steel Daytona, Yacht Master, Skywalker, almost collected more than a dozen. But what really made him absolutely poisoned was Panerai. After buying the first one 15 years ago, he has been poisoned to this day. ‘I can’t remember how many pieces I bought. In recent years, the heat has dropped a lot. Except for copper watches, ordinary ones have stopped.’ Sam said, he never intended to play antique watches. ‘The next thing is to continue to be casual, what to buy What. ‘At the beginning of this year, he took some watches and put together a 2018. This picture includes Rolex, Panerai, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and IWC. And that’s just a small part of his collection. Ever regretted buying money for a watch? Sam said, ‘Two children graduated from college, and they don’t have to pay tuition fees. Why did they not make money by buying watches?’ Seriously, I just like your unprofitable look. In fact, in our chat, the reader Zhong Song was more interesting, and he directly wrote the watch buying stage of his personal understanding. Rabbit believes that this form is more useful for ordinary consumers. First of all, in the first stage, the range of ‘good Swiss watches’ is very wide, and everyone’s various choices are covered. Second, Rolex still cannot be avoided, which is also a common phenomenon. Thirdly, it is normal to abandon antique watches because of deep water and shallow money. Fourth, although I have also bought a mechanical watch with complex functions, I finally settled on Rolex because the budget was not enough, and I couldn’t go headlong. Understanding your own spending power is an important prerequisite for buying a watch! Now that we have talked here, Rabbit, by the way, helps rationalize the idea of ​​buying a watch for new readers. First of all, the first chart of life depends entirely on your judgment of your own spending power and willingness to wait. The unwillingness to wait has been cheated of money by DWs (of course it is not worth much). My suggestion has always been, don’t settle for the second best, choose what you like and enough is enough to achieve it (when the rabbit’s first piece is Jaeger-LeCoultre flipped between the two places, rabbit powder in the group directly started Blancpain 6654, and even The first one bought the Patek Philippe calendar, which is completely different due to people’s preferences and financial resources). For example, it’s a coincidence recently that two readers came to inquire about a budget of 100,000 to 150,000. I wanted a formal watch and a sports watch. I was immediately reminded to buy a watch for the first time, do subtraction, and choose the most suitable budget. Of course, the result of the split is likely to be dissatisfied in the future. The advantage of this way is that when you look back later, you will find that you have saved the transition money. More importantly, when you buy later, you will be more clear about what you want. The second watch I see for most readers basically has two characteristics: choosing different brands, or different styles (such as from formal watches to sports watches, and vice versa). If there are more budgets, they will start to pursue complex functions (for example, a girl in the group with a high starting point, after buying PP4947, began to be interested in studying the Breguet tourbillon). In the future, ordinary consumers will not easily involve antique watches, but there is a possibility that after reaching the top of their own spending power, they will start buying back. For example, myself, after I bought the PP almanac earlier (one step in a certain stage of my life), I started to buy Rolex Daytona. I liked Chanel’s J12. I also like Omega Speedmaster, and I am very special. The face of Aibobo women’s watch also praised the Breguet goose eggs that had passed by. They loved the blind frost gold royal oak and even planned to buy an Oris … In fact, at this stage, it is true Belonging to the ‘like list’, you can put aside all external standards, instead of being restricted by such issues as ‘cost-effectiveness’, ‘fame’ and ‘can you shoot high?’ In a sense, women buy watches more purely than men, because there can’t be too much care about ‘likes’. Of course, women also have many choices. After all, few diamonds can be resisted. Why do I disagree with the view that the watch industry is deceiving? This also reminds me of the similar comments made by everyone about ‘diamonds are the biggest scam in the 21st century.’ Many times, product value is given by people (even gold), but life is the same. In fact, it is more meaningful than nothing like bitcoin, because it is exquisite and full of beauty, subtly improving the aesthetics. The reason why watch fans think that a watch is deceptive is because it is ultimately considered a business (for example, after losing a watch after losing a few tens of thousands), after a sale, they found that they did not make money and were dissatisfied. But I really like it without asking for anything. Do not think that buying a watch can maintain its value. It is just like clothes. It is a consumer product. It accompanies life and is only dressed up. It is a hobby to like the machinery and study the movement and aesthetics of the movement. Occasionally, when I encounter a watch with a strong price, I can cheer for it. The reason for writing this is because I have received many readers’ consultations these days, full of hesitation and trade-offs, nothing more than want to share some feelings with you-the small wisdom is the wisdom. It’s not just items that you spend money on, but also a pleasant mood and life experience. How do you measure money one by one? The gossip rabbit is only original, welcome to repost!
