  1. He's not the billionaire. His dad is. Worth $10bn but is a Kansas alum. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Anschutz
  2. Thoughts on it so far? Was considering picking one up for an everyday watch.
  3. Yeah but they are ours. We have that working for us.
  4. https://www.ebay.com/itm/295131878766?hash=item44b73b156e:g:VpMAAOSwuuZi6o8q&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoDBWlCoPxoag9k6ffgRE53jHqbLowOtZYdGrijzW0BbQjj0WPpQgxhG2THgWwnCgDpFo5HENCItnvxM4Ur0YntAYaskwP48HhowMDqI5CvjIs0rLFUVEqTWfWeleToM2Z0WnZBnXn910Uy3PViu9qgvkvXWXRfM76TwX%2B0Ww2A2hNvlIeyLo1TJLuBFAb5YxwVyjDLFwWqIwh4f3dql7Iys%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR86dxsLZYA Hulk's finally coming down to realistic price levels.
  5. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-07-29/the-crypto-collapse-has-flooded-the-market-with-rolex-and-patek#xj4y7vzkg Looks like more pricing corrections coming for PP's and Rolex.
  6. https://www.arsenal.com/oleksandr-zinchenko-joins-arsenal-manchester-city-transfer Excited to see what Zinchenko can do in his natural position.
  7. Really enjoying the "He who fights with monsters" series by Shirtaloon/Travis Deverell. @THUJONE would be right up your alley.
  8. Our realtor is the one who's challenging the tax changes. The house we bought isn't in the city jurisdiction. Our permitting will go through archuleta county. We close in 7 days so it shouldn't be too big of an issue.
  9. Pagosa was a weird one. Lots of HOAs have specific restrictions adopted and most of the town north of HWY 160 won't allow STRs. If you stay south of 160 you have to go through the county to get a license which seems much more straightforward. The real pain the ass so far has been finding contractors to make small changes and updates to the house.
  10. My wife and I (no pics) decided to take the plunge and invest in a short rental in Pagosa Springs, CO for passive income/part-time usage (1-2 months a year). According to AirDNA, Rabbu, and Mashvisor it should be a pretty healthy investment if we play things right and evolve's 10% management fee has made the deal a little sweeter. If the cards fall correctly and we pump all the income back into the loan we should have the home paid off pretty quick and are planning to run the story back again if it all works out. Anyone else deployed a similar strategy? Are there any pitfalls or "gotchas" to the thought process? For those that have done something similar are there any tips you could share or thoughts on ways to maximize the top line revenue generation from the property?
  11. I have. Good folks. Broke one of the pushers caps on my DSOTM and thought it was going to have to go back to geneva to fix and take months. Took it to Martinez and Hood and they had me in and out in about 30 mins and fixed free of charge.
  12. It's already calming down. Here's an example from chrono24's price performance model if you scroll down. https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/submariner-date--id23904498.htm The same downward tick can be seen across almost every rolex model. https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/rolex-gmt-master-ii-rootbeer-mint-2022-box--card--id24115343.htm https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/sea-dweller-stainless-steel-oyster-deepsea-blue-index-dial-watch-116660--id22719425.htm https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/1989-l-serial-rolex-daytona-zenith-inverted-6-champagne-diamond-16523-gold-watch--id23722119.htm
  13. It's already started. The hulk is down roughly 10% on Chrono24 already.
  14. My sixth year in a row to apply. Hopefully my luck changes this year.
  15. They're all just keeping Slonina's seat warm.
  16. Pluto is not a planet. Fight me.
  17. What kind of timepieces are they expecting in this auction? I have a couple I could probably send in if I can write it off on my taxes.
  18. Consider yourself lucky if you got it at MSRP.
  19. I have the DSTOM black, black. Haven't had any issues with it that weren't self caused. This makes a ton of sense. Almost makes buying on the secondary market a little more harrowing though. This is why I was trying to go through a local omega certified watchmaker. The idea of mailing off a $12k watch and just waiting on it gives me anxiety just thinking about it.
