    For those who find the article too long, it basically boils down to "buy the stuff we can't pay people to take."

    Buy only what you like. Try and find with box and papers. Buy items in very good condition. The big well known brands tend to have a better following but don't
    Rule out other brands such as Seiko.
    Good luck

    Can imagine that, oh that looks a nice place to start my collection off, HOW MUCH!!!!

    From now on I'm only buying limited editions, that must be a winner for sure...

    They open with one of the least desirable Rolexes then go rapidly downhill.

    Start with what you like and be prepared to say no as there's always another one out there.....
