    Default What would you do...sell Panerai SE watches or Porsche 911 ?

    I need to raise some cash - about 25k.USD
    This would involve wither selling my MINT 1989 Porsche Carrera 3.2 -
    which I have owned for 5 years and drive occassionally on Sundays.
    or
    Sell at least one of my Panerai Collection:

    Pam 127 Fiddy
    Pam 249 California

    Pam 195 Collectors Edition (name on back - this wont be sold)

    What would you do

    I'd probably say sell the watches. Even though I'd hate to see either go.

    127's and 249's seem to pop up pretty consistently. Mint 911's of that vintage don't.

    A car is one big wear item. It also costs $ to maintain and own it and insure it. As it is not a particularly rare model or depended on for transportation by any means and only likely to depreciate further I say dump the car.

    Thanks for the responses folks.

    Insurance is next to nothing as its insured as a limited mileage use Classic Car.
    It has (touch wood cost be very little in maintainance as its so low mileage 30,000 !)

    The car has, like the watch appreciated in value over the past 5 years but has probably reached its MAX, howver the watches are safe queens, my heart says sell the Fiddy Pam 127.
    The Porsche is impossible to replace in that condition, the Pam 127 would however at a later date be able to source. I am just uncertain whether the Pam 127 will increase in value more...
    I guess it all comes down to what would be my biggest regret factor ....and that's the BIG question :-((

    Sell your Porsche to me.

    I've been in the market for a 87-89 911 for a while. PM me if you are interested

    +1 Sal!

    Dump the car, very few costs associated with keeping the watches.

    Put all three up for sale, then your chances of making a good deal will tripple!
