    Re: New OKEAN/OKEAH and Sturmanskie from Volmax - 2019 edition

    The 2011 reissue (and the ones that followed) had the one piece caseback, different pushers and a slightly larger case. This version looks to be closer to the original(at least case wise, the dial is a different situation), so that's a good thing. The price is rather high, I agree. Sadly, this seems to be the trend with reissues, even from relatively affordable brands (take a look at Seiko...). I do have to wonder about one thing though: where are these 3133 coming from? I thought that they stopped making them in the early 2010, yet somehow they managed to find 500 of these and put them into this new reissue...

    I heard there are a lot of 3133 manufactured and stored away, it seems Volmax made sure they had enough for years to come.

    IMHO it is insane to charge around $1000 for a 3133 based watch. Even at $799 sale price it is still too expensive, add tax/VAT and you are pushing $900.

    I predict these new versions will not be selling well and we will see some serious discounts in the future.

    iconic + chronograph = milking fans

    as with other brands, I am not playing the game. If they stopped making them where is the excuse for the price increase? Price increase in Chinese cases? lol

    I recall they already having a hard time selling the older final editions.

    Playing the swiss model will also drive up the prices for used vintage chronos. Thumbs down from me.

    I understand they want to milk OKEAH brand, but at $900-1000 you can get much better watches.

    Modern automatic 7750 is superior to old 3133 mechanism, especially to 3133 made at the end of their production, which are know for quality issues (worn out machinery, declined QC).

    Irina only got couple pieces, that's not that much at all. I wonder how it works - do online dealers submit requests to Volmax and someone there decides how watches will be distributed among dealers?

    Just guessing.... making 500 watches requires an investment (to buy 500 movements, cases, bands). And then you will end up with 500 watches to sell. Risky. How about ‘just in time inventory’. Is this what Toyota was famous for? They will be making a few watches at a time and selling them. No risk. It maybe will cost more but this is why they put the 1k price tag to cover the extra coat of making small sets.

    if that is the case let's write Volmax a request. we might get a 10-30 watches batch at production cost, cutting the retail markup of ... :D
