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.
I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.

For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.
