Nice reissue. Not sure I’d pick this over a Zenith CP-2 though...

Probably good it sold out before I saw this. Great looking watch. I had one of the originals, one of those "never should have sold it" watches.

I hit the “Buy Now” button as soon as I saw it, even though it was not even close to being on my radar. Gone. Just as well, as there are definitely watches on my radar, and this would have been just another pothole in the long road of diversions.

I don't need a copy here is my original issued bund think I paid 1800.00 for it cheaper than the remake before the BIG price hike in issued watches and my older Sinn from the 1990's with the cool sweep hand plus hand-wind 7760 movement I got in a watch trade some years ago. To bad they did not use a hand wind movement and the correct type hour and minute hands and second hand and minute counter hands than the original that give it a more military look.

+1 I'm not a big fan of the syringe hands, the original handset would have been a better choice for the reissue.

Agree. Hand wind would have elevated it. Can’t fault them for an auto though...more user friendly.

Some jack ass has one for sale on flebay for 3,749.00 for a 1249 profit. Knew some jack ass would do this hope the jack ass reads this. Remakes are like a new cars once you take it off the lot you loose your ass if you resale it hope he looses his ass. Don’t they sale for 2500 ?

$3,750 minus 10% ebay fees minus 3% paypal fees minus shipping is about $3,200, so $700 profit.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if these consistently stay over $3,000 on resale, but we're not talking rolex grey market profit.
