Yeah fine I might be phoning it in. I went on a short trip with my family, but nevertheless Bloomberg delivered something useful for once instead of questionable statistics on infant mortality.
This is my review of Adelbert’s Brewery Tripel B Tripel Ale:
Recall my previous piece on the used watch market turning luxury watches into an inflation hedge. What do you mean you don’t? Really? I even reviewed an IPA. Fine, its cool…
Bloomberg reported the bubble burst, sort of:
In 2021, a combination of roaring stock markets and cryptocurrencies bolstered wealth and ignited a broader interest in investing in alternative assets, whether non-fungible tokens or timepieces. And when markets began to whipsaw earlier this year, against the backdrop of rising inflation and geopolitical tensions, some investors were keen to put their money into more tangible stores of value, such as a Rolex. Consequently, a new breed of young timepiece traders joined long-time collectors.
Whether they were novices or old hands, buyers all chased the same models. By February or March, the holy trinity of the most hyped watches — the Rolex Daytona, the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak — was trading for many multiples of their retail prices. The skeletal pieces produced by Richard Mille were also highly sought after.
With the S&P 500 flirting with a bear market, and Bitcoin losing about 70% of its value since November, that demand is now evaporating. Buyers are becoming more cautious. Higher interest rates, the absence of stimulus payments and soaring inflation are playing a part. Lockdowns in China and fewer Russian buyers may also have increased supply.
There it is. When in doubt blame the Russians. Then they updated it earlier this week:
At the same time, Stracke said trading volumes on the platform, which links dealers or private sellers with buyers, have jumped more than 50% in the first half of the year.
The price of a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711A, which sells for about $35,000 at retail, surged to $240,000 in the first quarter, according to Chrono24. Now the blue-dialed steel sports watch is fetching about $190,000
The reason I say sort of is because even if prices dropped, depending on when you bought you are probably still seeing a pretty decent return. Had the same money been dropped in say, Bitcoin around the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 you would only be down…what am I saying? You would actually be up. Bitcoin was trading at $8533.39 on March 1, 2020, and it is trading for $23,826.75 as of yesterday.
Amazingly, to see how much value they took out of your wallet, you may have to pan out a bit more.
You might notice this bottle says “001” written on the left side of the label (your left, not the bottle’s). Is this a collector’s item? Yes, but I lack the necessary cellar and more importantly the patience to sit and not open a Tripel. This one comes from Austin. They did a really good job with this, easily on par with a Unibroue product. How about an actual Trappist ale? I’d need both on hand to figure that one out and I doubt I’d see one if these again for a while. But should you find it…Adelbert’s Brewery Tripel B Tripel Ale: 4.2/5
Yummy tripel is yummy
Anyone “investing” in luxury time pieces instead of enjoying and appreciating them should be shot in the face.
Also, this is kinda like in 2008 when the housing market “crashed” after a 7 or 8 year long bull run where prices were increasing north of 10% a year. I wouldn’t necessarily consider a watch that’s been selling for 1,000% above MSRP suddenly plummeting to only 900% above MSRP a tragic loss of value.
Certain brands hold good value. Limited run Patek, V&C and the like. They are volatile, however. Look at them like classic cars. You can use them as a hedge and enjoy them, but I wouldn’t recommend them for anybody that isn’t well into 7 figures of reliable income a year.
OTH, you won’t lose money on a used Rolex. Feel free to buy one. However, if you use it be prepared to maintain it and watch that appreciation fade away when offset by servicing costs.
Your Swiss Trivia.
COSC – Certification
Servicing costs for a Rolex are high but not frequent. I have had mine for about a decade. The watch is nearly as old as I am. I had it serviced once. It cost $400 if I recall correctly.
Rolex got smart and won’t sell parts to independents anymore. So there is an underground network for OEM NOS parts that are drying up and a ton of shitty aftermarket parts.
Plan on spending a grand every ten years on a simple Rolex. For complications like a chrono the price will go up.
Yes, it’s real.
I meant the service center, not the watch.
BTW I should add there are two schools of thought on service.
1. Service every 5 years or so. The idea being that way something doesn’t wear and break.
2. Wait for it to to break or stop keeping time.
My thoughts. If parts are available wait for it to break. If it’s rare or vintage where parts are an issue preventative service makes sense.
So for a run of the mill Rolex wait for it to break or stop keeping time.
To me it’s like having an art collection that you keep under lock and key in a bunker and never look at, or a yacht that you keep permanently in dry dock and never take out to the sea. If something is ostensibly so valuable that it cannot be used for the purpose for which it was made, then its value is nothing. If I had that $1.337B Mega Millions ticket I might just go off my nut and buy a Jaquet Droz Tropical Bird Repeater with no intention of ever wearing it, but those aren’t really designed to be worn as a traditional wristwatch anyway. And you better damn well believe it would be displayed in a place of prominence in my new villa and would actually be wound up and demonstrated from time to time.
Fortunately I’ll never have that problem, and I’ll die with a small collection of modest watches that I actually spent my life wearing and enjoying.
I’m kind of surprised Rolex servicing costs have shot up that much. When I finished college I was really strongly considering watchmaking school, but the big Swiss manufacturers were paying peanuts at the time and I still had illusions that I was going to be successful. Of course, it sounds like the increase in servicing costs probably has little to do with the labor involved.
I collected vintage US Hamiltons. I have about 20 or so. I used to repair them before my eyes got old. Fortunately, they still mostly run as they see little use.
My two modern watches are an Omega Seamaster and Zenith Chrono with moon phase.
I remembered you used to work on and collect Hamiltons. I had actually contacted you a few years ago with some questions when I wanted to get back into watchmaking just as a hobbyist. Unfortunately that was just before COVID hit and my mom got diagnosed with cancer, so that fell by the wayside. I may try to get back into it again eventually, depending on what my work/living situation looks like in the coming months – things are a bit up in the air right now. Fortunately/unfortunately I’m nearsighted, so even as I age I’ll probably not lose quite as much of my near-field acuity.
Speaking of Hamilton, actually my 2nd to latest acquisition is a modern Hamilton Khaki auto faux-dive watch. I actually got it from a pawn shop on eBay who accepted my ridiculously lowball offer, so ended up paying half of retail. The orange/black color scheme is reminiscent of the old Seamaster Planet Ocean, which I loved (they don’t make it with the all-orange bezel anymore, which is a shame). I actually have a pretty good replica of that watch sitting in a box somewhere. It was a gift from my dad, who for whatever reason was more obsessed with the intricacies and inaccuracies of replicas than legit watches.
Interestingly though, the watches that I find myself wearing the most often and that mean the most to me are the quirky, cheaper ones I’ve picked up over the years. For Christmas I got a couple of sub-$100 old jump hour watches from the ’70s and I love wearing them.
I like a lot of the modern Hamilton line. It’s the Chevy of Swatch Group’s watch empire.
Next time I need to have my Hamilton H3 serviced, I might send it to you. There is a good watch guy in the next town over, but COVID did a number on almost everyone in that burg, seeing as it is a college town.
either your counter top or your glass is out of level. Or my visual cortex.
Hmm, that glass looks a bit askew doesn’t it?
The ale looks level in the glass. I’m guessing MS held his phone slightly off center when he took the photo.
Then you need a new level….
Now I can’t unsee it.
This puts all the rating into question.
Its been mentioned a few times but my chalice is made by hand, so while my countertop is plumb the glass is not. Ever buy glassware in Mexico where none of them are exactly the same? That’s pretty much why,
I got it from a local brewer (San Tan)…they no longer sell it. https://santan-store.myshopify.com/collections/glassware

As a Canuck who’s used to the idea of lump-sum, tax-free winnings from our various lotteries, I have to ask: how much of that is gonna be gulped down (like a teenager inhaling a Big Mac) by Federal, state and local taxes on income?
30% to 40% depending on residence.
This the place to go.
Phooey. They already changed it for theft. Here!
400+ million isn’t bad
Poor guy is going to find a whole lot of long-lost relatives though. I hope he lawyers up and gets a good accountant before he claims the prize.
The idea of a “financial advisor” sounds good but they have too often been caught embezzling from their clients. And when my husband was job seeking a few years back, he got a ridiculous number of recruitment nibbles for “financial advisor” jobs, so we both were instantly skeptical of that profession.
That’s the biggest problem who can you trust. I think a lot of states allow you the use a trust to secure your identity from all your long lost relatives and old “friends”. You’ve got to let a few people in though, or you could just be disappeared.
Not only can you not have a trust here, but
At least half will be swallowed up by the gov.
What people don’t realize is the government already got half the second someone bought the ticket. Then the government takes another 37 to 45 % of the winnings.
Yep. Up here, it’s around 67% (two-thirds of every dollar spent on a lottery ticket goes immediately to the government).
In a rare moment of “We can’t screw the peasants over forever,” our various governments here made the winnings tax-free and (almost always) lump-sum.
‘Course, it’s virtually impossible to claim your prize unless you’re willing to do a press conference, thus guaranteeing that you’re gonna be hassled after you collect your winnings.
Wow, a rare 4.3/5 rating from Sharpy! That makes me want to hunt for this tripel.
As for watches, I do too much physical work with my hands to wear something valuable. But I don’t wear cheap shot either.
I’m a Bulova gal.
Adelberts is great. I don’t like that style in general, but even I like this beer.
The hubs bought me a new women’s Bulova watch for my birthday a few months ago, because I can’t really use my Apple Watch anywhere “secure” at work. It’s a lovely Marine Star with a Pearl background and a few Diamond accents. Tasteful and not too extravagant.

Everybody buys a Rolex, which has become a sort of cliche. If you want to impress someone who knows a bit about watches, buy one of these, which will probably cost less than a Rolex.
There’s a town full of watchmakers in a place called Glashütte in Germany.
If I go German and win lotto.
Those are sweet.
Honestly, no idea what I’d get if funds were unlimited.
Still pretty happy with my Laco
Lange is choice, but Glashutte Original comes pretty close with their Senator line.
Plus you can go total hipster and point out the digits in the enormous date window are on the same plane.
There was a time when wearing a Rolex was seen as a total pseud move among watch aficionados because they were so frequently knocked off and because the hoi polloi admired them. Then when hating Rolex became the mainstream watch snob position, the inevitable contrarian backlash arrived and Rolexes could be worn without shame again (the Hublot Royal Oak took some of the heat off of Rolex, I think, since every fucking rapper, basketball star, and poker player in the late aughts was wearing them). I’m not sure where the pendulum sits now. In any case, never buy a watch to impress a watch snob. Even if it’s a 1 of 1 custom built by a team of artisans each of whose ancestors have been making fine time pieces since Christopher Columbus walked the courts of Europe that keeps time as accurately as the US Naval Observatory Master Clock, they’ll find a way to tell you how overrated and shitty it is compared to [x].
Here’s the really funny part, I get more compliments over my Seiko than anything else. Like from the guy at the drive through, randos at the gym, etc.
The various Seiko 5 permutations are wonderful watches.
Other than watch snobs, pretty much nobody knows or cares what kind of watch is on your wrist, especially now when it’s become such a niche thing since everybody just uses their phones to tell time. A lot of watch guys seem to think real life is like the business card scene in American Psycho.
In addition to his replicas, my dad had a couple of nice mid-range watches back in the day that he’d wear for work and poker. He said he’d never had anyone at a poker table ever notice his watch, until he showed up with this novelty watch my step-brother gave him one year. Whole table went nuts for it.
*considers inviting Pat over to listen to Huey Lewis records *
Yeah its like people that drive a Saab.
Nobody gets it but when they do…
I’ve had someone’s ask about my watch just once, I think. I should wear it more regularly:
It looks sweet on the rubber strap it came with.
That does look nice.
I like it
I love that crown.
Of course, that’s what conspicuous consumption is all about.
I’m not sure where the pendulum sits now
Who cares what anyone else thinks. I wear a calibre 3135 Datejust because I love mechanical things like carburetors, iron sights, and slide rules. It’s thirty years old, and service this year was after about seven years: new Oyster bracelet and basic service and only a few part replacements ~2,000USD.
This right here.
The fact that all the “vaccines” are based on getting the immune system to recognize the “spike” protein is a huge problem, because it’s the spike protein itself that does the lasting damage!!
The mRNA vaxxes hijack cells and turn them into spike protein factories.

Regardless, I don’t wish Biden a speedy recovery.
I never got the vaxx, and any vid I got was mild, but hey, keep on fooling yourself
Maybe they did give him Paxlovid.
I seem to recall reading they did just that.
I can’t figure out if they’re trying to kill him or if they’re just insanely stupid.
They are all morons. They’ve all got their miracle “vaccines” and now get Paxlovid that was never tested on the vaxxed.
It’s time for him to do something productive. I say we fling him over the Kremlin’s walls.
Brilliant idea. I’ll get the trebuchet.
Headed off to the local Tapas place for a Sean approved meal. I will start off with a bacon flight with a whiskey flight.
I look forward to checking in on the Great NY Celebration later. They need more cameras. You know… for evidence.

I like watches but not into the expensive ones. Nixon, Seiko, Jack Mason.
Nixon? Enjoy your EPA and wage/price controls.
I just never cared for wearing watches or jewelry.
I get it.
Haven’t worn a watch in decades
And only 10 rounds? That’s a .22 dog.

Husband grilled up some lovely chicken legs last evening—very good, but lot of leftovers.
So I got wild hair to make some Tikka Masala sauce to spruce up the leftovers.
I googles a recipe that sounded legit (other than some criminally small quantities of certain spices) and HOLY COW (<—Hindu pun) is it delicious!
Not everyone had the ingredients in the pantry, but I cook Indian food at least once a week and we are well-stocked. But I don’t have a tandoori oven, so I have never tried this before. Chicken on the grill then served up with the sauce is a little bit of Heaven.
There is nothing wrong with anything there.
So many things are wrong with the autocorrect though.
Why does it change my verb tense and other words that are not typos?
So annoying. Fuck off, Apple.

There is a spice place in Vegas proper that could supply your needs.
Looks great, except for the cayenne. I have banned cayenne from our kitchen because it’s boring — all heat, no flavour. Not like these chiles (ignore the very first one, it’s just a variant of cayenne again):
I used Kashmiri red chili pepper instead.
It’s not just “HEAT” for its own sake; it adds a lovely flavor of its own.
I love Indian food but I’m not even going to try to cook it.
Nah, it’ll be fine. The word “curry” is (more-or-less) pronounced “kari” in Hindi, and just means “stew.” There are thousands of curries, and most are no more difficult than stewing beef or pork or chicken.
I love making different curries, though the time-tested favourites I go back to again and again…
My Kashmiri Rogan Josh has led many authentic Dot Indian women in the USA to request the recipe.
My biryani comes out only for special occasions at church but is equally appreciated.
The real fun is when I enter a chili cook-off and the judges have never experienced the flavors they are getting. I’ve won a few based on intrigue alone.

I want to thank OMWC and WebDom/Poppy for inviting us all the share in the celebration of SP’s amazing life. I returned from there a short time ago, leaving reluctantly as TT indicated he was running out of gas. (He’s now asleep.) He, too, wanted to pass along his thanks to all who helped make the day a true delight. (He’d do so himself, but he doesn’t have his password saved on the laptop he brought.) I’m sorry that most of you here commenting now couldn’t join us, and I sincerely hope there will be other similar events (but NOT for similar reasons!) at which I’ll be able to meet even more of you. This is a special community, both online and in “meatspace” when the opportunities to gather in the flesh arise.
Good to see you earlier!
Good to see…ummm…your image! I apologize for not conversing more – as you could probably tell, it was pretty loud in the room and very difficult to hear what you and the other Zoomers were saying. Saw someone I almost half-suspected might be you, but I think it was maybe SP’s sister. Hope to meet you in person before too long!
No one got arrested? Lame.
Right? And they call themselves libertarians.
Well, not everyone had left when I made my exit, so there was still time for someone to redeem the event and get the opportunity to demand “Am I being detained???”
It’s always great to hear our dispersed community come together…..next time…next time.
Were there any Canucks there? You need Canucks. We only need two things to have a good time — a case of beer and a plausible excuse for breaking the law.

We libertarians are famously independent, but as human animals, we really do need social interactions and support. We share our joys, our pains, our anxieties, our musings.
But we don’t want social interactions commanded by govt officials. No bueno.
Just got back from dinner with Mrs. Patzer, I’ll second what GT said (eat your heart out, Bro). It was really great to meet some great people in RL, especially GT and TT. And y’all missed an impromptu a capella rendition of this from TT and me (lyrics NSFW).
I could kick myself for missing that! I must have been off trying to collect souvenirs. You two will just have to give us an encore at the NEXT gathering!
Are you kids already partied out? I was hoping for some police action. Oh well, quality over quantity is usually good.
Maybe when we get back from dinner, we’ll trash our hotel room! 😃
