Thanks. Yes, they were LE: 1000 ss ($8,500), 500 rg ($12,500) & 250 pt ($21,500). They were released in 1993, probably all produced by 1995 and many sat at dealers through 2000. Then they became the hottest watch for collectors. I bought this one at the end of 2005. Through a series of WTB ads, targeted emails to people who know people in watches and answering old FS ads, I turned up two in every metal. At that time, steel was going for $12k, gold was going for $15-$16k and platinum $20-$22k.
I even uncovered an ultra-rare Pisa Portuguesier for about $16k, but that was just too rich - even though I consider the Pisa the most beautiful of the lot.
