    Yeah, I guess the price is reasonable... I do wonder about these NOS watches, won't the oil have gone gooey?

    No more so than a used watch that hasn't been serviced.

    Yeah, I thought about them needing a service of €360 for sure, factoring that in the price for the second listing if it is genuine still seems OK-ish.

    I guess on one hand the watch hasn't been going so the movement won't have 'wear', but then a watch that has been going the oil will have been going where it should.

    Original price in 1999 was £1250, as a matter of interest....

    I noticed that as well but considering inflation that would now amount to around 2100 GBP. Still they haven't put a huge margin on it holding it for 20 years in stock.

    Hmm, just noticed that in 1999 a quartz chronograph was £1325, an automatic chronograph was £1695... things have changed!

    For sure not only watches. I remember Kia Rio costs equivalent to €10K in the Netherlands in 1999, now a Kia Rio starts at about 20k.

    Yes, but a Kia Rio in 1999 was not worth buying even for Euro10, whereas now it is worth buying.

    True in regards of quality but when looking at a BMW 3-series starting price now compared to 1999 is also higher. The only example I can think of is Nike Air Max having same price in 1999 as 2020.

    I was really highlighting the relative disparity in the price of quartz and auto movements

    Glad you enjoyed it! Five and six are in the works, but soooo much work left to do!

    Might do the Kirium in the meantime. There's 'only' 86 of them!
