    Default Opinions on gen, would you? Should you?

    So I have been away for awhile and I am buying reps again. However, I have my grail Rolex submariner gen when they were obtainable. Now I see folks spending 3,4,5 thousand dollars on reps... which got me thinking, at what point do you say I will buy a gen? So if you were to spend$1000 on an awesome rep would you just pony up $3500 for a gen (of something)? Just thinking out loud. What say you?

    Depends on the rep and the corresponding gen. If I saw a gen sub in decent order for 4k I’d jump at it. There are reps with many gen parts and are sometimes worth it, but I agree they can start to encroach on the lower end of the gen pre-owned price ladder. I don’t think there is any hard and fast rule that you can apply to this question but I personally would be reluctant to part with thousands of dollars or GBP for a rep, regardless of how many gen bits it had – but that’s just me.
    The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see. (W.C.)

    Agree wholeheartedly. Although the work that folks are putting into making them as authentic as possible is admirable. I enjoy seeing it.
