I was looking at a site the other day, on which a person is selling vintage, new-in-box, Casios and Seikos, etc. These watches were originally fairly inexpensive, I'd imagine, but are now going for over $200. This value is obviously a perceived one, and mostly due to the fact that these watches represent the beginnings of the digital era.
We are now, however, quite in the midst of the digital era---or at least solidly into its beginnings---and I wonder if our current watches (mudmen, pathfinders, etc.) will garner the interest the old novelties of the 70s and 80s currently are (frogmen excepted???). I have no interest in stocking up on new-in-box mudmen; rather, I simply am curious what you all think. Is the new GWM-5600 going to be one of those? The Mudman, Gulfman? What would make any of the current models interesting for this?
