    "Rarity" does not necessarily come with "movement" but the complete watch, that is dial, case and manufacturer.

    Therefore the model can be rare in its own right based on how many of that exact model exist, albeit with a common ebauche (as most watches were)

    Re: Seaboard Yacht Help

    You're of course right, Adam. The point that I was trying to stress upon in my post you've quoted, is that so far this thread doesn't happen to have a single resource confirming the rarity of this particular watch. Going by the resource in post no.3, there is nowhere near enough information on the company which made it, and the watches themselves, in order to call it rare.
    A link found in that resource:
    Seaboard Yacht – a beautiful yachting watch from the 60´s ? Heuerchrono.com
    Definitely provides some technical info, but whether the amount of these watches produced was 100 or 100 000, is unclear. That's why to me it's not in any way rare, until proven rare, and given the caveat in the resource, we might not expect that proof to appear any time soon.

    @laikrodukas- yes, the Hodinkee effect can be observed for quite some time already. If I may express my opinion on that: Hodinkee is a gold mine of knowledge, and a market pest- both at the same time.

    Made by Kelek (J.R.Gorgerat), a perfectly good Swiss brand in the sixties.

    I should add that the movement is a Landeron 148 or 248 (not 48) - details in the clutch area differ between the two later and the earlier movements:
