Morning Crunchers! So, here's the deal:

I have had this watch on my radar for a while. Obviously, this watch sells like hotcakes and then it is resold for almost 3x it's original price.

For those who own this watch (I am hoping to buy the black one) what are your likes/dislikes of it? What was the original price that you bought it for and would you pay these offensive prices that we are seeing on the net?

I like watches. I like ghosts. I like macabre things lol!馃槵馃槈馃槣

Anyway, any advice and help would be greatly appreciated on this matter.

Have a safe and great start to your weekend and for my Crunchers up North, be safe with that weather up there.

Sorry Eric but I think this model is a gimmick. Obviously fun and the night lume looks good. I鈥檇 rather burn coin on a Mr Jones watch.

3x original pricing? It is quite unique and the lume on the back is amazing. I just don鈥檛 know if it鈥檚 worth 3x. Not to me anyway but I think only you can decide on that.

Hey, sorry, I may have the math wrong but the watch originally sold for what, $450 or so? Then I am seeing it online being sold LNIB for like $1,000 and on Chrono24 is even higher.

Please correct me if I am wrong. I am interested in your experiences and your advice/help馃榾

There will likely be a new edition in the fall, wait. It is a cool watch, but never pay over MSRP for any watch.

I hope so, and I also hope I convince my wife in the meantime that I definitely NEED this lol

I feel like Mr. Jones watches can be gimmicky as well, and the automatic models retail for over $500. In the end, it鈥檚 about how a very specific design makes you feel.

i bought it with the intent to keep. i love divers and the bezel was hard to turn which pretty much killed it for me. i do love halloween and the little ghosts, but i found myself not wearing it. so i sold it.

Hey. You mentioned that the bezel was hard to turn. Funny thing is that my Spinnaker Regatta White Dial's bezel is a bit hard to turn too so I just leave it the 12'o clock pip at 12 o' clock. But, I do twist all of the watches that have bezels so they don't get gunk all inside and they get stuck. One of my Seiko Flighmasters had a crap ton of gunk and that's why it wouldn't turn.

What is your wrist size? That watch looks huge on you馃槷

6.75 inches. It may look big because i had the camera too close! It fit just fine, but just barely.
