Couple of reasons I guess.Besides a limited release why is it so expensive?
Most of Casio's "collabs" are done with companies like BAPE, Stussy, and many companies that aim for a younger, hipper audience. They make trendy advertising pieces with (usually) the name of the company printed on the strap or bezel, and appeal to the same people who buy limited edition t-shirts or tennis shoes, and who are willing to pay a hundred dollars more for a limited edition watch in a fancy box.Besides a limited release why is it so expensive?
Awesome they checked this thread ;-) ;-) Seriously its already much better than 25K USD offered some time agoIt just so happens the Murakami Frogman can be yours on eBay right now for the low price of $20,999USD . . . or best offer. I offered $350, but it was sadly declined.
TM had been sold for roughly 17K USD ( NOS ) not long time ago if I remember correctly. But yeah you never know the real price unless you‘re the buyer.I think a DW-5000C Honda F1 watch might rival the Murukami. Sure the Murukami might list for 10-20k, but that doesn't mean it actually sold for that much. I do think the Honda F1 would sell for 5-10k in an auction.
