I have avoided collecting the exotic pieces such as the Paul Newman and the Double red Sea dweller as the prices have become so high and even after buying them, how can one sell it at the same prices or higher? I Have seen two original DRSD one asking for US$25,000 and the other asking for US$45,000. How does one determine the prices given similar conditions? The issue is not the buying but letting one go at a certain time in your life. How often can one find a buyer who is willing to pay US$45,000 for a red printed wording? I wonder.
Given the advancement of printing technology, some dealers may one day turn out fake red printed dweller and what will happen to those who bought the original, when both becomes identical...Scary thoughts... As such, I would prefer to buy a Patek Philippe 2526 with enamel dial and with a Patek Philippe archive paper instead of a DRSW as the watch with the paper has been verified by an authority. Thats's me taking the conservative approach. Just my 2 cents worth of thought.
