He had 2 "Steve McQueen" Explorer II's (where the MKII Capstone draws its unique dial from). Impressive. They were asking ~$35K for each of them. That's what I love about MKII, you get the whole package - look, feel, quality - for 1/35th of the cost!

    have the same point of origin. ( Shenzhen )

    Had a thought and wanted to leave a disclaimer to my earlier post: the prices at Aaron Faber are definitely INFLATED. So my endorsement of AF wasn't so much as a place to buy but rather a place to browse, and truly see some amazing stuff.

    Also not to say you should never buy there...a good source for selection and provenance that would make it easy for someone that wants a vintage piece without having to do too much searching or homework. But I for one love the homework part. (if you plan to buy there, definitely do at least a little homework on the price range for your target piece...and definitely negotiate...there will be room)
