    Halios Delfin worth buying

    Hi I am fairly new to this forum and I am wondering if anyone has any opinion or experience with the Halios Delfin. I love the look of the watch but the price of 625 makes it at the upper end of my budget and I want to make sure it is worth the money. If anyone has any comment about the watch or the brand itself I would love to hear it.

    Best,
    Andy

    Halios is one of the highest quality affordable microbrands out there. Their fit and finish is on par or better than most other affordable micros. I would say it's worth it. But as always if you buy used it always maximizes your budget.

    I Have looked for them used and I can only find them for 1,000 or so which is much more than the 675 which it costs to ship to the states. They say that this is a fair price because they are so hard to find however Halios has them up for preorder with delivery times in February. Unless I can find it for less than that it looks like I will have to buy new.

    The Miyota movement is basic but the watch looks great & he has a good following.

    I love the look of the Tropik as well. I'm always mystified when people offer their watch pre-owned for more than it costs to buy a new one. I doubt that works very often.

    Thank you for the feedback. I think I will be pulling the trigger on this as my first piece for 2016.

    What I meant is if you took that 675 you can buy other watches that are a bit better used. Swiss movement and all that.

    Which Swiss movement would be better than the Miyota 9015? I'd agree with you if it was the entry level Miyota, but with the high beat 9015 I can't really think of a reason to go Swiss.

    (Well, maybe a Chronometer rated watch.. Mido has a couple sub-$1000 gray market)
