Because charging $1,000 for a watch isn’t enough, let’s ask $25 extra if you want the bezel to be DLC.

If it was a Seiko they’d be calling it the ‘tuxedo’.
It’s interesting but also not my preference

Luis you know dlc coating is always a little more than the SS model. So no matter if it $100 or a $1000 of course it would be an added cost. :cheers:

Not to say that I would buy this watch though. :crybaby:

You’re absolutely right, Terry. I’m just saying that if he was selling at $650, I can understand charging $25 more but at $1,000 for that tiny little thing without bracelet and with a fixed bezel, the $25 looks like a joke to me.

More power to him for having the customer base to pay that much and for creating watches that go up in value though. I saw some people pay over $1,500 for the blue dials on eBay.
