    I was lucky enough to get if from my AD for under retail. Paid about $11,700. Think I had been on the waiting list for roughly 2 years. Honestly can't believe I got one at all considering most places have waiting lists a mile long. Can't stop staring at it. :D

    Picked up my dream watch today. I’ve actually wanted the Seamaster Pro Chrono for years but the looks of the new non chrono Pro caught my eye when they first came out. Went to a local AD today and got a fantastic price on this guy.

    Love the throwback wave dial and the ceramic face/bezel really make the watch pop

    Local authorized dealer. If you’re interested in the specific dealer, send me a PM. They are more than fair in pricing for sure

    I used to have one of those! Loved it! And, it reminded me of back in the day when these were the schizzle amongst us nerdy friends! The display also glowed like the Timex! smile:

    Dave, that data bank calc watch was my dream watch in the early 80’s. Couldn’t afford it of course.

    I couldn't afford that Timex Indi glow watch when it came out either. :s I wanted one but never got one.

    But I did get some nice watches eventually. 150.00 ea. value or so. I just had the batteries replaced in those first watches I was able to afford. I'll try and get some pics of my modest collection soon. I still wear a couple I got at a yard sale and goodwill too.

    I'd like to pick up a friend or 2 for my lonely Breitling. Are there any online dealers that you guys would highly recommend? Any to avoid?
