Dude, it looks like you can pick them up on the cheap. I saw one for ~$8,500. Not too shabby at all. I enjoy when watch companies pander to the purists. VC has a knack for doing that, which I appreciate. I would not exactly call that watch a commercially viable watch. Same with the Mercator. Or maybe commercially viable is not the best term, but I think it gets across what I am getting at! I put those watches in the same realm as the 34mm JLC Master Ultra Thin. Not exactly the hottest of commodities for most folk.
