To be honest, when I saw this piece with Nautilus together, I liked this more. As far as actual work on the dial, the movement, and case, I feel like this piece has more value than the Natuilus or steel AP for that matter. The case material is a more expensive metal (both material and process), the dial feels more complex and luxurious than Nautilus, and the movement finishing is on par if not better (depends on your personal view)… the only thing it doesn’t have going for it is a metal bracelet at the same quality of the timepiece.

As far as used market price, I could never figure out why people would pay 50K for Nautilus, let alone this piece. :slight_smile:

It features tantalum case and gold movement.
Perhaps, it is just my guessing, such a high craftsmanship (for a three-hander) paired to extremely low production volumes has helped the price list skyrocket.

Professional traders/investors did the rest :slightly_smiling_face:
