I got a seiko skx007 maybe 3 or 4 years ago.  loved that watch until I took it off whilst taking a shit, put it on my lap and when I got up it hit the bathroom tile.  fucker broke. like I can hear a cog or sprocket loose inside.

Should be easy enough to have repaired but it may be more cost effective to buy a new one. Skx007 has been discontinued and is now being made under the Seiko 5 line, but they are still available, for now.

@ndvlimited run of 365? Did you find a price on that?

Yes!  There are plenty on the market.  Pretty much all Louis Moinet models are all 356 limited runs, i think its an homage to time/days/calender??

 

 The one depicted in the photo I posted is the 18k Rose Gold.  That one there 40+k I think.  A few floating around for 30k possibly cheaper.  

 

The Titanium/gold is 17k but I had found on on the market for 11k.  Other LM models sell for under 10k easy.    Everyone in a while ill take a look at chrono24 as a means to see how the pre-owned market is doing.  But the brand stays pretty strong on resale value. 

 

On another note, I would like to know how good/reliable are Concepto Movements since concepto is the choice of movement for LM.  

 

I never heard of concepto and I had mentioned the company to a Mont Blanc watch maker at a trunk show, and he never heard of them as this is the default response I get from a lot of dealers.    Not sure if its just a ploy?

Vostok Steve Zissou Amphibia arrived a few wks early. Lighter and smaller than I expected. Love the non ratchet bezel and ‘wobbly’ crown. Very different than anything else I have.The Vostok rubber strap is made of incredibly soft rubber... softer than my gshock by a mile.

Been wearing the Vostok for the last nine days and loving it. This thing is running great time. No idea on +/- seconds per day but I set it to the clock on my cell and it’s still spot on. The second has a bit of a sweep to it. No at the level of my omega but better than my seiko. These things have a rep for being shitters but to be honest I’m very impressed. At about $70, this thing can def compete with the $200-400 seikos. 
 

the only thing I don’t care for is the 18 mm lug width. 20 mm would’ve been a bit nicer but maybe I’m just used to 20

 

i have one of these nato on the way but covid is ducking w the shipping heavy. Will be my strap for aloha Friday at work and will keep the rubber for the other days. Will prob be my daily driver for a while. Loving it.
