What do you think abut that...Zenton was sending mails out to their subscribers announcing

The new Zenton V45 Chrono....great lume, but 1222$ w/o shipping.

Well, I thought their first watch was already a bit overprized...but what do you know...I guess they will sell them.

You find more on their website and as always..at OceanicTime!!

I think it looks awesome, seen it on Lex's blog :-!.

Of course I wish it were cheaper but that doesnt mean its not worth it. I really dont know anything about Zenton. I do know that shes a super cool looking day/date chrono b-)|>, few and far between these days.

I thought the 1st watch was slightly high but now it's not looking/sounding so bad with the V45 at 1222.00. Their up there with Zixen on the prices.

I actually think it is priced very fair considering what you get. Once you throw in the whole package of accessories, spare parts, 10 yr warranty, free service every 2 yrs, top grade movement, display back, etc...I think the price is hard to beat.:-!

You will note that prices are creeping up on all boutique watches.
I agree. What signaled that to me is how Zixen watches flow out now at $1000+.

I really like Zenton watches, Michael is an incredible person to deal with, absolutely no messing around with him, first class act all the way.

The M45 is not just a motorway in England:-d, its weight tight tollerances, lume, hex bolt instead of pins and flimsy screws, movement is great , keeps wicked time, the bracelet is phenominally silky and comfortable like nothing else, NO BS it is simply awesome, the quality is extra on the Zenton. I think for what you get the price is decent , it includes an Unparagonned service for the price, it cant be touched IMO.

it comes with a bracelet, rubber strap, leather strap and is adjusted in 5 positions. it also has a 10 year warranty - so i do not think it is over priced.

Ocean7 LM-6C (chronograph) was introduced around 2 years ago at $1699, it's now $899. For $322 more you get in this Zenton V45 near COSC top grade movement and 10 year warranty. It's price point is not unreasonable to me.

I'm not sure that the LM-6C was that much when it was introduced. I think you may be confusing it with the LM-2C, which has a large titanium case and was higher priced than the LM-6C.

IMO The V45 is a great looking watch and a very fair price for what you receive... Bracelet, rubber strap, leather strap, top grade swiss ETA 7750 adjusted in 5 positions and a 10 year warranty..... that has my attention.

Info off of the Zenton web site:

what is in the box when you get your ZENTON
1. watch fitted with bracelet with butterfly buckle
2. extra bracelet links, 2 pcs
3. rubber strap with 22mm buckle
4. leather strap with 24mm buckle
5. extra diver clasp for the bracelet
6. spare screws for case lugs, 2 pcs
7. metal tubes for leather strap, 2 pcs
8. easygo pin for easy assembly of bracelet and case screws
9. screw driver (2 in 1)
10.ZENTON INTERNATIONAL 10 YEARS WARRANTY

took a wee bit o' research...LM-6C was introduced at $1599 in 12/07; by April 08 it was $1699, same prices as the LM-2C (but w/o its titanium bracelet which was optional +$200). LM-6C included the SS bracelet.

Mitch's words just before the two chronos were introduced 12/07:

"It [LM-6C] will probably be priced the same as the LM-2C at $1599, but that price will include the band. I haven't costed the project yet, since I just found out the cost of the movements."

I was into chronos some time ago...and the fact was/is, I never really used the chrono for anything!!. It's a complication that needs just more care and the money I had to shell out to get my SINN 156 maintenenced was considerable (but the V45 seems to be free for 10 years...one just have to read the fine print I guess). I would safe the money and go for the M45.
