All cool and sexy sexy, Morgan!
The watch looks really cool, I know the feeling to NEEED something urgently like that. For me the one and only holiday beach and swim watch.
And yes, abrod520-who ever that is in person without say his name- said right too with "bargain-basement Sellita / DD chrono movement" - it is a 2k watch if you see the material only. Sure! BUT - that are the most watches (and less) ;) of course I wish TH would have done better with a nicer movement.
Anyway - it´s mostly the look, the demand, the rareness, the coolness and many more factors (like good movements).
You had the money to buy it for that crazy price? do! good!
I am just curious if we will see another Skipper after the 1,5yrs gentleman agreement. (remember: https://www.heuerchrono.com/heuer-watches/hodinkee-skipper/) it´s not long and the agreement is over... then maybe all are able to buy a Skipper ;)
btw - the blue Revolution clone in Bamford style I don´t like, not the same LE as the Skipper. It has no connection to anything like the Hodinkee Skipper - in color, in history, in supply and demand. Just a senseless sequel to me. But maybe it find some fans... we will see.
Enjoy Morgan and keep on rockin´!
PS: #42? The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy explains that ;)
