If I had the two Rolexes mentioned, Iíd happily trade trade them for the 15202st, so...

As it happens, I had the BLNR when I put the deposit down to get on the waitlist for the Jumbo. I could have kept the BLNR, but was never crazy about the boxy maxi-case and the big slab side. So I let it go, no regrets...

I wouldnít sell the Jumbo. One of the most beautiful watches ever made in my opinion. Never fails to put a smile on my face.

Work on adding the watches you want

The jumbo isnít for everyone despite it being a classic watch. If you donít wear it, then move it on for something you will actually use.

Unless you want to keep hold as an Ďinvestmentí of sorts to speculate on the resale price carrying on upwards. In which case your guess as to future pricing is as good as anyone elseís.

The Jumbo is a beautiful, classic watch and a grail for many (including me). However, I reckon I would always be too worried babying it for the reasons mentioned by Gus below (and he would know - heís previously owned it and a 5711).

Both BLRO and Kermit are much more practical, durable and versatile watches. Youíre less likely to baby them and you would actually wear them more often than the OP is currently wearing the Jumbo.

Sure the 15202ST has been appreciating in value, but the Kermit has been increasing in value too (but probably not at the same rate).

Itís enjoying the investment potential vs enjoyment of wearing a watch.

Better for you to own the watch, rather than for the watch to own you. Thatís my 2 cents worth.

190 offers on C24 though relatively this may be the ballpark, the offers in all cases are likely multiple for the same watch.


Practically speaking, the OP ďdoesnít really wear the AP except for the rare occasionĒ and has not given any indication he intends to go into the watch trading and investment business... he has a watch he doesnít wear worth more than he payed for it and an offer of two extremely wearable and sought after watches from a brand that has a more broad appeal for resale if needed and holds up significantly better to wear and tear.

The AP while special in so many ways, has issues of concern with WR, performance , date setting and most importantly if actually worn looks like it was working on the rock pile in a few weeks. This might be fine for continued ownership but is a nonstarter for private resale and would have to go in trade where full value will not be realized.

Imho of course.

The 15202ST is just as versatile and practical as Rolex. In fact, the 15202 is much more comfortable on wrist. Try to daily the 15202ST for a week instead ;-)

I'd personally keep the Jumbo.

Im AP all the way but can't really argue much to these points. Very good insight

3rd. Is the overall value and what is important to you,
getting the peak value that the AP is trading at vs the peak values that the VL and BLRO are trading at... or msrp vs msrp for all though the LV is the most solid value of the bunch imho

Thatís what o would consider.


For what itís worth, both of the rolex are all purpose everyday wears and likely to continue to be desirable when the economy & market shift occurs.

I would not do that trade for all the reasons mentioned about, such a stunning piece. Assuming you are trading with a grey, I would rather wait and slowly add the the Rolex you like as and when you need!

Trade or not, just go for the watch(s) you want to put on your wrist every morning because at the end of it all, isn't that what its about? Value, collectability, etc should only be secondary.

5402/15202 is the most iconic and beautiful watch ever designed. Definitely a keeper. Add the Rolexes later.

Buy / keep what you will wear. That's what watches are meant for. To be worn and enjoyed. Not to sit in a safe hoping they will make you rich someday, because that will likely not happen.

So you are saying you want to trade the watch that created the luxury sports watches category for 2 watches that were originally just sports watches and now also considered luxury? Add to that the thinnest center rotor automatic movement for a long time to a mass produced workhorse?

I say no..never. I love both brands, but the Jumbo is much more special than the 2 Rolex you mentioned.

If you are going to sell it now would be the right time. The economy is reaching the end of the most historic bull run in history - luxury goods all across the board (and very notably, watches) have increased in price as a result of the increased demand.

I'd move it now or hold for years.
