basically the same SD 200M diver watch
the new ones not even come with ceramic bezel
the only different is under 10/20/30/40/50 on the bezel insert
new one with extra "dot" old one without
each dot I bet is over $100 each:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
plus these are regular models
I would go after older models if I can get a decent discount

dude now is Sep
not April 1st :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

I don't think any GS hold it's value
most of the time you won't even get your money back

when GS/SEIKO discontinued their older models
they offer huge discount in Japan/oversea

I got my SBGE015 new at oversea dealer @45% off ...(y)

back to 2019 you can get 20-40% off from Timeless TX for triple names GS
they classified them as "used" but actually unworn
still have few left now @25% off

On the other hand there are some models which actually gain value - Whirlpool, Kiku, Peacock - just to name a few.

Surely I wouldn't expect any upside on widely-accessible models like Snowflake.

Another one with rising value is the LE SBGN001 from 2019. Interesting for a quartz watch to rise in value like it is.

What a pitty. It's a great watch.

The same is true about very limited 017. And will probably be also the case with 025.

Have you guys actually sold any GS/SEIKO before?
do you know how hard to sell Seiko/GS..even you just want to get your money back with unworn watch?

don't forget Ebay charge you 14% fees
if you break even on the price after fees you only get 86%/87% back!

Why sell on eBay when you can sell here and have more exposure to the enthusiasts in the market for a niche piece?

Good reason for investors to invest their capital in something else then, isn't it, and leave watches to people who are actually interested in them. Or by "Grand Seiko" did you mean to write "orange juice and pork bellies"?

Yeah, plenty…

SBGY003. Used it for 3 years and sold it for almost double what I paid for it after fees etc.

Limited edition seiko's even the cheap 5's can give you more than what you paid. (Rowing blazers or evisen sushi)

SLA017 went up significantly more than what I paid for it.

SARB033 & 035 went up double what I paid for it.

Kira Zuri Grand Seiko doubled in value.

Seiko Orange monster doubled.

Seiko collab models quadrupled and still going…

I mean how many more models do you want me to name? You just don't buy watches to invest but if you're hell bent on value get the hot limited pieces and you should have good capital to swap it for something new and some.

Anyways, let's get back to talking some new watches !! I have heard some news regarding Grand Seiko's plans for the rest of the year.
