dude, just to be clear: when I say SMP i'm referring to the the seamaster professional. yes, you can get a brand new SMP for under 2k today, it most certainly does not sell "for over 4k". the seamasters have had sapphire crystals for as long as recent memory serves. well over 8 years. "good for you that it hasn't broken down" - hold up, this is one of the same movements that you referred to as "great". my personal opinion aside, am I to infer that this isn't a "great" watch by your standards, even though it contains a "great" movement? By SMP I assumed you meant Speedmaster Professional. And the Seamaster Pro retails for $3,500+, where can you get one for $2k brand new? For 43% discount, hook it up because I'd buy one for myself and maybe another to resell. And of course no quartz movements. Seamaster is awesome but again, no way you will find it for $2k unless you wait for a store to close and just getting rid of old stock, which rarely happens. Yeah, it has great movements but it isn't $2k brand new. I suggested it as a great used watch because that is the only way you can find it for $2k. The Seamaster may not sell for $4k because of discounts but the Bond GMT retails $4k.
