I've been collecting for a few years and have a decent collection of mostly budget and entry-level watches with a few mid-tier watches. I consider myself a lucky watch enthusiast, as the six watches in my profile picture are all gifts from my wife.
I am pretty sure an Islander with a Swiss GMT movement will be close in price to the Lorier Hyperion. This will easily be the most expensive Islander. My guess is that it will be somewhere between $600-$700.
I am also guessing that the chronograph will use the Ameriquartz chronograph movement.
Very exciting! I may have to forgo getting another GMT until this one premieres. I was considering the new Seiko 5 GMT, but I would much rather wait to see what Marc, or more probably Ryan 😀, comes up with. Still waiting to hear about a chronograph.
