commented on A Worthwhile Investment or Outdated Relic? 馃

I sold my SKX009 last year at sorry a healthy profit margin but it wasn't that healthy. Maybe I should of held off a bit longer lol.

Anyway I think it depends the person. If your collector and the purchase is all about the SKX's place horological history it maybe worth the $ to you. However if buying it to for function and use the value is certainly not there. I realized I'm more the latter thus why I sold mine.

Well 1 out of 5 for moving forward lol. Not a resounding positive market analysis so far.

I may do it anyway otherwise I may as well just chuck this calculator watch in the bin as it will never get wrist time without me doing something crazy to it.

I love that Vintage Orient! My tastes have skewed the opposite direction as yours likely because I work remotely. As a result my daily attire is typically made up of Lululemon, Gymshark, or Cabela's (non-workout days). Don't judge me I rarely leave the house during the work week :(.
