    Wow that price is the highest that i have seen so far...again its another international bidder...

    I can forsee something...the price will be stagnant at 56000Yen for the next 3 days. Unless another international bidder comes along...

    The one for sale does not even have the price tag attached...

    These are SKy's brazilians. They are complete:-D












    cheers~

    Do all Brazillians have a number on the caseback. One of my friends has two of em, but without any "300/400" type numbers on the back. Do the Addict versions have these numbers ? How many addicts were made ?

    Hi ecelmk,

    The addict models are exactly the same as the normal brazilians.

    No engraving was done on the caseback of the addict model. There is only a limitation number that is stated on the box.

    The only physical difference is that the addict version has a black band retainer while the ordinary version has a white one.

    I believe that the addict is not truely rare as i have seen it for sale on other website after being sold out in addict.com

    Lastly---welcome to the forum----

    cheers~

    What the hell...i just noticed something...The brazilian that the person is bidding on is a used one..

    The bidder is going to regret it!!!! You can get a brand new in box for that price and still have change.

    I can guarantee now that the end price will be what he bidded (56000Yen)...Lousy price

    Just last night I traded my Brazilian for an IWW spa'd and fully serviced Seiko 6309-7049 from a fellow member. Jack worked his magic and the piece appears as new, flawless, relumed with a flat AR sapphire crystal. The restorative work is easily worth $400.USD. Add to that the cost of such a rare Seiko and you'll get some idea of what a Brazilian is worth.
    Best regards,

    thanks sky, so the two watches Im looking at are Addicts....good that means I can probably talk him into letting me have one cheap. He wanted $300, I guess thats a fair price for an addict ?

    What is a fair price for a brand new addict with the box & papers ?
