5990/1R is going to be the natural successor. Interesting to see the dial colour.

Probably initially as bid prices trail ask prices terribly, but if they will actually accept 160 then I think 110/120 would be a final offer.

We have some of the most enthusiastic watch fans here so let see how many actually would pay that much for this watch?
there are probably 1000's of mainland Chinese would be Nautilus clients put their hands up.

At this point in time, China is the largest luxury watch goods buyer in the world.
All available statistics (check Hodinkee, etc) point to Chinese buyers being the primary driving force for high demand and increasing prices.

I'm quite keen to get a 5980a blue and might consider trading white 5726 for it plus I'll need to pay bit cash... God knows how much more for 5980r. I think around 40 or 50...

I can recall around 3 years ago a member swapped his 5980R, 5712A and added cash on top for a double sealed 5131R. Now 5980R and 5131R have similar grey market prices.
