What do you guys think of the future price development for the OQ...I think it will be one of the models that will see a great increase, shadowing the AP RO that has seen quite the price development the last years...the down side is the problems to fix a broken movement and the hefty service cost...what’s your thoughts?

I would not fear service costs. Worst case a motor module will add $600 to a $700 service. Unfortunately you are tied to Rolex for service as they will not sell parts for these. I know you will read differently here but mine spent 7 months at the only alternative for motor repair with no luck. I will not name names as even without a successful repair the service was impeccable and at no cost. I honestly believe the 17000 in particular will appreciate. I mentioned that in a thread on investment watches and received the comment $3000.00 an investment? Which I laughed off with a buy 10 response. Point being we are not all rich and 3k turning in to 5k is not a bad thing. Attached is my beloved mk1 beater and the last watch I will sell. It is often a conversation starter
and just plain cool to wear. Buy one while you can,l guarantee you will love it whether it appreciates or not.

Yes I believe they still do service dials, although not all will be available.
