    Wire lug Amphibians

    I really love the Amphibians with wire lugs but they seem to be very rare. I only see one on eBay and it has a buy it now of $950! Admittedly it is 300m but is this even close to what they usually go for? How often do they come up for sale? Either a 200m or 300m would be awesome to have.

    Ebay watch.

    Edit: Also do they take 22mm straps?

    I don't look for them very often, but no, they don't come up for sale regularly. And I see 300m fibbies very rarely. So the market is, well, unclear. I'd say that $900+ is an awful lot to pay, but I don't have a good idea of even the range. (I personally wouldn't pay more than an original Strela in good condition, but that's just me.)

    jeez. for $900 you could get the tools to do a convincing mod yourself and just make a bunch of 'em and sell 'em for $250.

    This is where the market seems to be going, comrade, but the wire lugs are for the 300m only, I believe, for large strap to fit over diving suit as this was a genuine tool given to military divers to use only.

    According to the condition and quality, this watch is not worth $ 200. But if someone wants necessarily have wire lug Amphibians they are often on Aukro for S I X T Y Dollars

    Ok so it seems like that price is crazy which was kinda what I thought. What is the difference between a 300m and a 200m that make the 100m of difference? Are the seals different?

    Главным образом потому, что это часы дешево массового производства и за небольшие деньги можно собрать коллекции значительных размеров

    Only a few are sold every year... so I am not shocked by this price: between 750-1000 USD
    The watch is correct conditions
