Pretty sure a lot of these were just taken off the market temporarily.

A new Resonance is coming, so it makes sense, if you can afford it as a secondary market retailer, to wait and see.

Still a gamble, either way.

Makes good sense.

Seems almost certainly watchbox pulled stock. If you want to make a market and raise prices you must first create the illusion of extreme scarcity. Just my guess.

Anyways I nearly cried when I saw a brass movement resonance complete set listed by jacek 2 years ago for 37k asking lol I too have done some searching and that came up.

I actually was about to make an offer on that, and then it was sold. :(

Especially considering the new Resonance will retail at $135k. The previous market prices, even within the $60-80 range, will seem like a bargain.

K2 had a beautiful brass one too recently for $53k! It was so nice.

Got a new custom strap for my 38mm RG CS from Jean Rousseau, ostrich on the outward facing side, and color matched small scale alligator backing. I really enjoyed ordering from them. Since they didn't have a template for my particular strap and the curvature is a bit tricky, I sent a ton of measurements to closely match my OEM black alligator strap. They did a fantastic job. Better yet, I was able to have the holes for the tang buckle placed such that the middle hole is a perfect fit for an average day, and more tightly spaced for warmer or cooler conditions. Only bummer is that I forgot to order the curved spring bars from them, and they cannot source the quick-release curved bars. Fortunately forum member ToxicNATO hooked me up. I had to tighten up the radius just a touch with some pliers, transplant the tang buckle, and now she's ready to go.

Excellent another Havana!

I am already looking at Centigraphes. Just love my Havana, and the Centigraphe just does it for me. Love the Salmon dial, but also love the Boutique black dial. Decisions decisions...

I while it appears in this thread that platinum is the favorite pick, I cannot get enough FPJ rose gold! They do it perfectly!

Thank you all very much!!!

Much appreciated, in person this watch wears very well with a variety of strap choices. Also have a khaki green strap on the way that looked pretty good when I tried it for a moment at the boutique.
