Found a gem




Just bought a BNIB ck2998 from an AD in France . Got 15 percent off list price and an additional 14 percent tax refund . Brings it to about 4800 USD . Did I do well?

Loving it on my wrist . Unfortunately the AD experience was rushed as I had a train to catch , oh well.

Excellent choice. Love that watch. I recall being impressed by the comfortable, supple strap when I tried it on at the AD once.

Great watch at a great price. Super underrated this one imo. Matter of time before hype kicks in down the road.

Thank you all ! Mad in love with this . Considering the normal sapphire moon watch goes for about 4K grey market, I think I came out well.
