Ok, if you look at what the auction houses and pre-owned dealers are selling watches for compared to retail (to say nothing of arguing price with the dealer and getting a discount), you will see that BP's (and VC's for example) fare less well when it comes to resale value than PP' or AP's. I am comparing from the simplest ultra thin watch to the most expensive super complication.

Hate it when that happens...

Interesting observation; thanks. I should have actually not mentioned AP; just don't follow them that closely.

Vbuskirk, looks great. But are they genuine 232 hands or aftermarket? How could you get OEM parts like this given how tightly OP controls its repair shops and parts?

They don't make it easy do they? These were OEM sold out the back door from a dealer never to be named off of a serviced 232. (The minute hand has some scratches on it.)

Now if only my spring bar tool will come in, just realized today I had to get one :rofl:

Nice! I think the Conker is a very nice color, and black thread will be fine (think of moo's Narragansett bag).and will compliment the face. That's a great watch you have. Yes, Richard is a very good communicator. Definitely post pics of the watch on the Toshi.

Did you order a deployant from Bob Davis? He sells the Bergeon spring-bar tool for a good price.

I got the Bergeon spring-bar tool from Otto Frei actually. And I have yet to do the deployant yet... Not sure if I want to do a deployant or just stick with the strap--may just get another strap and put the deployant on that one smile.gif.

A few users on here talking about the price of watches these days.

 

I have found that Vostok watches are reasonably priced and a decent alternative to spending so much money. Since the fall of the Soviet Union the company has really come out with some nice stuff.

If you're talking about Vostok Europe, I believe the movements are Russian but the watches are actually built in Lithuania. I actually have the VE Gaz-14 GMT, its a pretty watch (MASSIVE on the wrist compared to what I normally wear), but for some reason the hour hand slipped and is now always 30 mins behind the actual time. I took it to a local shop and they couldnt figure out how to get to the face to fix it, so until I find some place that can fix it I don't wear it much anymore.

They are different companies.Vostok Europe is owned by the Koliz Company. The real Vostok company supplies internal parts to the Koliz Company to make Vostok Europe watches.
