I actually made 1k on the OP but probably could have made more if I was patient. The GS is pre owned but still a relative bargain at £1650, though I am going to try and source a GS bracelet and they're not cheap.

Yeah on shitter core models too, its all the social media hype.

Good move flipping for a profit tiger as they're only going down once this initial hype dies off.

Yeah I watched one of Paul Thorpe's videos about the OP hype and how their availability will open up in early 2021, especially the black and silver dials. I'm happy either way, though Grand Seiko just quoted me £700 for the bracelet Eek

I'm planning on getting a bracelet for my black bay 36. I was quoted just over £600 from the AD

I know its a lot for a stainless bracelet, but in comparison to other watches (rolex, IWC, cartier etc) with similarly well made bracelets its not too bad.

I recently paid £150 for am IWC pin buckle, that hurt! But couldn't bear to put a copy part on it.

This little thing:

I’ve always bought watches with the bracelet so guess I never realised. Am going to try and source it cheaper but guess I will bite the bullet if I have to.

Managed to pick it up off eBay for around £75-80 from a UK seller, the original source seems to be aliexpress. Mine is the gen 2 version if that helps.

I quite like it, but becomes very novelty with the mod imo

I said a few weeks ago when ismvil posted his that I resisted buying one as its more shit that I dont need and will most likely not wear often.

Last week I caved and ordered one, Yoox was the cheapest I found, £89 delivered.

I also ordered the gen 2 metal case, but not the bracelet. But it does look great with both on.

Im guessing they pick up scratches like mad?

Weirdly enough I spent a few hours researching this yesterday…

Here’s the 3rd gen case for the mod…
