  1. Renting out a home?

    with interest so low interest rates and able to be fixed for five years+, would a BTL mortgage be better?, and hold onto your cash just put a big deposit down say 30% , spend free/ well low cost money rather than yours, BUT this Do some research into additional stamp duty & new taxes being phased in over the next three years and this think you're about 10 years too late to be getting into the BTL game. are things worth thinking about dean.m
  2. was considering this but glad thought about it now with more wiser heads than mine saying its over sold dean.m
  3. ta not known about , one for the save list dean.m
  4. Welsh Gold Rush?

    I would have though like most items alleged to be "OF" e.g welsh gold it is its provenance that gives it its value " a rolex is a rolex unless Paul Newman owned it! dean.m
  5. Today I Received

    got this today, things on the metal front has slowed due to purchase of the new watch! but was at the pc ( off this week) and thought this 1/4 dragon was cheaper than any of the ones advertised and at the usual suspect dealers by £20 ish upon a quick search as it was ending , put in a last min bid and won. dean.m came in the capsule too
  6. Royal Mint offering a 1 oz gold bar in a free competition!

    I am in they have my e mail address anyway so nowt to lose dean.m
  7. further to the thread about are watchs a investment ,latest addition to the fleet japans finest , every bit as good as a Rolex IMO obviously , , dean.m
  8. I like watches an have a few ( well now down to 12 ) its like anything else get to know about a subject and you can maximise the interest and with luck profit from it if necessary, pateks & rolex aren't the only ones to make money on, like precious metals, buy the right ones & buy them right and you will not lose money get enjoyment in owning/ using them and may in some cases come out on top, just a point on Rolexes now, the ADs are now under instructions to with hold the warranty card for up wards of two years only releasing them to the original buyers and removing all covering stickers ! to get round the quick profiteers & grey dealers cashing in , theory being you cant now advertise it being a "Full set" with stickers which always gave the watches a bit more value & credibility as being "new & unworn". dean.m

  13. Today I Received

    another half 2005, to go with another half and full all proof, not sure why I have this fascination with 2005 same with 2012 probably as they are one off designs and seem to be steadily rising in proof /graded form ?if nothing else its a addition to the stack dean.m
