I began the first leg last week of my Vintage Audemars Piguet Replica WatchesAsylum's trip. I was carrying a bag of snacks to fuel the 30-hour flight from New York to Bali. I looked out the window of my taxi. Nervous, but excited, I started mentally preparing for the journey of my life.
Let me give you some background to help you understand my excitement. The Vintage Audemars Piguet Replica WatchesAssociation (or VRA), was founded in Bali by an Indonesian group of Audemars Piguet Replica Watchesenthusiasts about five years ago. It hosts a biennial event for passionate Audemars Piguet Replica Watcheslovers. This is my third official event.Breitling Avenger Replica Bali VRA, a gathering of over 70 passionate and driven Audemars Piguet Replica Watchesenthusiasts is something that every Audemars Piguet Replica Watchesenthusiast would love to attend. A weekend of watch-loving and business negotiations follows as collectors from around the globe bring their finest timepieces.
VRA may seem like a group for watch collectors. But the gathering has become so much more. We meet to discuss rare Audemars Piguet Replica Watchesdials and can talk for hours about the evolution of crown protectors. However, the meeting becomes one of friendship because of the overwhelming sense that we share a common interest. We all agree that the watches bring us in but the people keep us there.
It is still a shock to me at the magnitude of this event. Five years ago,Bell & Ross Replica I began collecting watches. Submariners have been my passion since childhood. Perhaps I am a sucker to stories, but I love the way Audemars Piguet Replica Watchescombines time and sport in an intimate way. As the brand created watches for divers, it established a special relationship between the wearer and the watch that keeps him alive. The modern owner can identify the specific characteristics of these Submariners and connect to their original history. Each watch tells a story of time, people, and their stories.
Today's watches are five times more expensive than when VRA was founded.Audemars Piguet Replica Watches This is a significant number. Modern collecting has seen a revolution in intelligence. It was once an industry that had limited access to quality information. Collectors today inspect watches with multiple tests before purchasing them. With the high prices of these watches, it is important to know what you are getting.
Condition and rarity
It is important to consider two things when considering investment: the rarity and the condition of the watch. Different collectors prioritize different factors. While it is fine to have a rare reference with honest wear-and tear, it can raise questions about the value of your investment. What will happen to a watch that has been worn a lot? Quality will always prevail, but original rarities are selling in high numbers at auctions. Take a look at the ref. Just look at the recent ref.
