I only Live Twice, one for my life, one for the Dream

You Only Live Twice or so it seems,
One life for yourself and one for your dreams.
You drift through the years and life seems tame,
Make one dream come true, you only live twice.
And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on,
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

This is the beautiful James Bong Movie Theme song
"You Only Live Twice - Nancy Sinatra": Greatest Hits 1965-1971. It was written by Barry, John.

Honesty, I don't have the luxury to live twice, we need to capture the opportunity to make a bold decision to make your dream come true. The dream of a James bond Watch; a basically indestructible Rolex!

For friends who know me, in HK, I have sold three of my Rolexes** that I spent $222,000  in five years ago and I sold to collector at $281,000
That is a profit of 27%.

Well, we cannot say this is not bad trade, either I cannot say this is very good as comparing with some of the Vintage Patek Philippe. But my investment is small while my growth is 2 digits in just  4 to 5 years.

I have been using these watches every day, that is one of the beauty of the Rolex. You keep on using it and it is getting aged day by day, but still it can create extra value by time I sold it. Is that Awesome!?

So what is the best items that we can be made as my next dream, here is my personal opinion.

Ref 116660 Deepsea D-Blue
Super Rare and seems it is harder to get, it may be matching my earlier saying that it is the plot of Rolex to select this watch as the star of the sky!
AD MRSP $90,500
It was sold at open market at HK$89,000 Sept 2014.
In march $91,000, May $92,000 to 93,000
Now it is about to leap into ranges of $93,000 to 94,500
So it is time to get one, I would like to say yes, as there is rumour that this model will be discontinued soon.
So what is the lowest price we can get it, it is About $93,000 now.

Ref 116610LV Submariner Green Bezel and green Dial, simply I like this for the first full green color made for Submariner.
MRSP $68,100.  A reasonable price is $65,000 to $66,000

Ref 16610LV Submariner Anniversary Green Bezel, black dial Flat 4, this is the earliest release 2009, full set NOS. I believe the price will soar high in coming years.
Current Price is about $75,000- $80,000. Note that this was selling about $40,500  in 2009.

Ref 116710BLNR GMT MASTER II Batman, MSRP $67,300, a new one is about $64000 to 65,500

The above models are difficult to be found at AD, the price here is the gray dealer import price in HKD.

Remarks **
Ref 18049 Day Date, 18238 Day Date Yellow Gold, Ref 19018 OQ Yellow Gold in Oak dial.
