    Most Overpriced ETA Based Watch - Modified And Non- Modified?

    I am curious to know what the WUS community thinks is the most overpriced (not most expensive/limited editions):

    1) ETA/Valjoux based watch - Non-Modified

    2) ETA/Valjoux based watch - Modified

    And if you could provide why....could be interesting topic.

    Thanks.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if its the most overpriced. But the most expensive that I know of is the IWC Grand Complication. Its based off of heavily even maybe unrecognizable ETA movement.

    Movado is going a 60-piece limited edition museum dial watch, which I understand is 18k gold and uses what appears to be an unmodified ETA/unitas hand-wind movement. I think they were asking $20,000....

    hmmmmm

    the IWC "Scafusia" is a $250.000 watch and build on the base of a Valjoux 7750.

    but it is overworked with moduls for perpetual calendar, flayback, tourbillon etc...

    I should have clarified better, I was more thinking along the lines of regular production (non limited editions/one offs). Great responses though, keep it going!

    I would assume this is an unmodified movement, right? Otherwise, thats a pretty common price range for a modified 7750 in a higher end watch.


    BTW, dont some Panerai with 2824's and a basic gym clock dial go for like 5k?
