            Apparently the folks down here want your money but not your diseases so they’re in a bit of a quandary!! LOL

          As psyched said, a really nice sunny morning today in AKL. Hope for the same wherever you all might be today.




          Have a good weekend!

            Also very annoying that the forum doesn't allow comments on the starting post, that's a great looking mid-century chrono retlaw! They really knew how to do a lug or two back in the day didn't they? Out of interest can you tell me what calibre is powering that one?

              Thanks Gauss. Its powered by the Valjoux 22 movement.

              Glad that Gauss asked, as I was about to guess the movement to be Landeron 48, given the rectangular pushers. However, Valjoux 22 is even better

              Wow! Best vintage I’ve seen on here since the Eterna. Stunning.

                Beaut condition too given the 60+ years. Especially the well-preserved dial.

              Back in the tractor today, Valtra T151 for those interested, hard to believe we had snow on the ground a couple of days ago, 17 and windy today. Some great watches so far today. Hagwe, I'm watching my son in Colts Metro semi tomorrow.

                Well I’m gonna ruin things and bring us back down a notch. Haha! I’m getting into the garden this afternoon hopefully so the G Shock is on the wrist. As much as it’s at a completely different level to all other watches already posted (except for 246’s as he beat me to it while I typed this long winded post on my phone) I’m actually a bit blown away by what’s happening in the G Shock market. It seems it’s going the way of Seiko and as soon as something exits production the value shoots up. I think I got this at an eBay type price 7 or 8 years ago for around the $200 mark. May even have been a bit less. I know I only paid $150 for the King of G that I bought when I first sold this Riseman and that was from a well known Wellington based Casio retailer. Both watches were on sold without profit, but probably not much loss either. However you’re looking at a minimum of NZ$350 + shipping to buy new ones now on eBay as it seems those specific models are out of production. And anything that’s slightly ‘limited edition’ is another coupla hundy. So I’m now in the same situation with Casio as I have been with all the vintage Seikos that I bought and sold for next to nothing over the years! It’s crazy. It does make you think about buying one or two of the current cheaper, but slightly interesting models and putting them away for 5-10yrs to see if they’ll end up being worth four times as much. That’s not really why I like watches though so I’ll just move on and have a bit of a chuckle at people that are prepared to pay $500 for a Riseman.

                  Not ruining anything at all, Leroy--at least not for me. If we're talking price, then I'm winning the whose-is-the-cheapest stake with my WAYWOF a couple of posts down :D

                  I too have been taking an interest in G-Shock's rise within the last 5 or so years, from Budget Range, when their main strength was low price, to where they are now--Quality Range Non-Luxury, where main strength is quality. I commented in my WAYWOF post two weeks ago that Casio's flagship MR-G is now Entry-Level Luxury, and at NZ$4k+ for the basic MR-G, they are definitely charging for intangible luxury value. Whether or not the mainstream watch enthusiasts agree, G-Shock now competes with not only their compatriots, Citizen and Orient, but also with base Swatch Group brands, like Hamilton and Tissot. Whether or not WIS like it, MR-G is now in direct competition with Swiss technical-orient entry-level luxury Swiss, like Bell&Ross and Fortis, along with (gasp) Seiko Marinemaster.

                  I remember 10-15 years ago, how mainstream watch forums turned their noses at Seiko, and folks on TradeMe won't fork out any more than a few hundred for a Seiko ("it's just a Seiko"). Some of these people now write on Hodinkee/Monochrome-type sites with pretty pictures. pretending that they never disliked Seiko. The feeling that mainstream enthusiasts have for G-Shock today is the exact same feeling towards Seiko a decade ago. So, you're onto something!

                  I’m sure you guys are right on the Casio front, I don’t know enough to comment. But, I would just caution any recent increase could be related to the abundant money printing going on around the world. I’m sure it’s affecting things in limited supply. All that money has to go some where, how long will it continue, who knows. Enjoy your weekend.

                  246, I agree totally. The cruel thing about bubbles are that they continue to expand up to the very moment they burst. I've cautioned people about making big ticket purchases during these times, though I can never be sure whether those same people are on the receiving end of the money printing chain

                  Great watches and commentary today ...A Russian on my wrist to celebrate 1000 posts on Timekeeper, which is behind a lot of your guys, but that's all I have been able to do in 11 years on this forum ...

                  Rising in value even more than Leroy’s watch. Undoubtedly
