    That watch seems incredibly difficult to read. Needs more contrast.

    I wonder if the numbers have any luminosity?

    Apparently, the have lume, according to a YouTube review.

    Also, check out a thread on WUS. Not well received watches apparently for the money.

    I can't link due to forum rules, sorry ;)

    Edit, I really like the look of it though!

    No offense, I'm not rich and I can easily afford that.

    Being in the watches sub-forum, I thought this was going to be an interesting topic about someone's grand-father or dad who recently passed, but left behind a beautiful vintage watch. Perhaps something like a Patek Philippe or maybe an early Rolex Submariner from the mid. 1950s.

    I thought this watch was around $2500 US according to the mfg website.

    Yeah ... You can buy it for quite a bit less than that from certain reputable online watch shops. Even less if you buy from a Grey-market dealer.

    An earlier reply to my OP made it seem as if this was not an expensive watch. In my opinion any watch north of $500 is pricey. Im sure the watch snobs will chime in with watch prices of $5k-$20k. Any idea where these "reputable" online retailers with reduced prices might be for this time piece?

    Personally I'd just save up the $2,500 rather than waiting for a well off loved one to pass.....seems ghoulish IMHO.

    The only blacked out watch I have really liked is the LumTec M33. For big bucks I would buy a Breitling Transocean Day & Date or a Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow.

    it's nice, but I prefer a much cheaper Ticino or Laco in the Type B dial!

    If you like BO watches, perhaps a traser P 6600 SHADE will fit your taste.

    Most expensive watch I've owned was a Bulova Marine Star, very nice watch at ~$500 msrp. I paid about $250 from an unauthorized online retailer.

    That said, when 'somebody rich dies' how about going all out?

    $775,000

    or

    $915,000

    Usually ships within one business day ;) The craftsmanship on these types of watches is miraculous, but I can't help but thinking something is a bit wrong with the world when a tiny minority of people can spend a million dollars on a watch, 60 million on a diamond, 200 million on a painting, 600 million on a pleasure yacht...

    At least my $15 stainless steel quartz digital Casio keeps more accurate time.
