I just bought a technomarine neo classic magnum for $175, and i could not be happier. It is a beautiful watch and nothing ever felt better on my wrist. It has a Swiss ETA G10.711 movement and a sapphire crystal. The chronograph works perfectly. How does everyone else feel about technomarine? I feel like this is my first legit watch. Original retail was $1000, so i got a good deal in that aspect. Watch Analog watch Clock Plant Watch accessory

The case is sapphire?

And TM is one of those brands like Invicta that NEVER sell at even half retail price.

I have not owed or seen a Technomarine, in person. You like it and that is all the matters in the long run. Vance.

Congrats! I owned one for years. The SS bracelet with black ceramic center links is still one of the best looking I have ever owned, MOP dial too. It was the most bling I ever wore lol

You seem to be extremely happy with it, so wear it in good health. It's a good deal, no matter what the fair market value is (certainly no where near $1,000). How much less could you possibly pay? We all have different tastes and different budgets. Just enjoy!

Never heard of TechnoMarine until this posting, so I can't say whether or not it is a good watch. But as long as you are happy with it that is all that counts.

Well that's a colorful watch. It's nice. Why does it get more dangerous as the chrono gets to 30? Does it self detonate? :LOL:

I am familiar with the brand. They have their own distinct dressy diver style. Invicta bought them awhile ago and lets them do their own thing. Invicta also bought Glycine and lets them do their own thing. Its a good brand and being owned by Invicta gives them more security and operating capitol.

This is one of those brands that I've always liked but never had the pleasure of owning. What is the quintessential Techno Marine model? I think they occupy a unique place in the market.

I'm not sure what the quintessential model is. I think it's the Cruise. I personally like the manta collection.

I had one that was designed and built when Vincent Perriard ran the company (from Audemars, Concord, and HYT fame). It was grade 5 titanium and had a nice ETA 2824 under the hood. I sold it on but it was a really solid watch. Very unique.









Nice watch! I'm pretty sure mine was also built before invicta bought the company. I'm not as much a fan of their newer models.
