so what special about this " John player " is pure 18k gold thansundaymorningstaple wrote: ↑Wed, 05 Aug 2020 6:52 pmRarity and high gold content (most gold watches are 14K not 18K (Higher purity of gold) due to the softness of the metal. Only made around 133 pieces in 18K gold in total but the John Player Special was only a hand full (only about 10 examples are known to exist).
ahh learn something here no wondersundaymorningstaple wrote: ↑Wed, 05 Aug 2020 8:21 pmCorrect. Only 10 are known in the world. The JPS Datona Rolex watch is the same as the one that was worn by Paul Newman in the movie but his was stainless steel not pure solid 18K gold (not gold plated). It's not PURE gold as that is 24K and much to soft for anything except bullion coins.

I feel we as consumers view is two different thing come watch, digital smart watch like Apple watch is totally different from traditional Swiss watch, the build, how it works etc .bgd wrote: ↑Thu, 06 Aug 2020 4:27 pmI think Rolex creates it's own demand by restricting supply. How sustainable that is in the long term is anyones guess, fashion is a fickle thing. It's why some of the major luxury fashion brands destroy unsold stock at the end of the year. They want to maintain exclusivity.
It's not that long back when digital nearly killed the whole Swiss watch thing. The industry has certainly recovered.
