I was told there is some Patek rep builder #$10K per watch?

"I don't mind paying 10K for a Rep" 

WTF?

I would never do it but if he wants to it's his money. I'd be shopping gen when spending anything over $300 :p

I just found this:

https://www.thewatchbox.com/shop/3952660.html?keyword=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkuvbqPfb5AIVh-NkCh0YhA1YEAkYFSABEgK13_D_BwE

This will do just fine.  While not "cheap" it will at least hold its value, whereas trying to sell a $20K replica would be such a pain in the ass.

I've ordered some high end reps before and some arrived as described, others not, so it is best not to waste my time if I can find a good looking gen for the acceptable price of $47K

 

But I do thank you for the link and info guys.

An interesting turn if events, I goes to show having money doesn't mean you aren't interested in money saving. I agree selling such builds will be tricky. 

The best way to get rich is to not spend any money.

Absolutely.  As a matter of principle anyone on a Rep site who is pretentious enough to boast that spending $47k on a watch is acceptable should be gulagged automatically. Thats my total pension for almost 2 years.  Flash git!

Think about it people.  That watch is advertised in many many places for $60K.

I can buy the cheapest one on the internet for $43.5

Most importantly, if I want to, I can sell it again.---possibly at a gain.

Selling a $20K rep is almost impossible because, fact is- rep people are not usually in that category of liquidity.

If you were to do this apparently unheard of thing and think about ones financial position of the future, then buying the resellable gen at a low price for what it is might make sense.

 

Buying a racing sailboat is altogether a different thing...

The best way to STAY rich is to buy assets, not expenses.

Got it.

Now the cheapest one on the internet is $47,500    as in $4,000 more than I paid.

Not looking like such a bad financial deal now, is it?

You did not waste your time.  Your post was informative and helpful, and I sincerely appreciate your efforts.

You are not at fault for the poo that many are leaving in the sand of this playground,   the self described xxxxxs can choose to reveal their characters however they wish.  Your intention was honest, and therefore it is not stained by the poo shooters.

Cheers (insert smiley face here)
