    Cool Out-of-Production watches that you DO own, that other WISs want

    Ya, I did a search - to see if this topic was done.
    Maybe it was, IDK, but I couldn't find it easily, so here goes.

    I saw a lot of threads dealing with the theme of REGRETTING not getting now out-of-production watches.
    So, I thought, why dwell on spilled mil, why not brag about of those rare pieces that you DO have, and are delighted to own them?
    And it just warms your heart to know you got yours, when many did not theirs.

    OK, so I will kick this off with something pedestrian, and "mid-prole," since it seems to be a sure bet with a lot of WISs.

    Interesting topic, but I think we need some ground rules. How long since they've been discontinued? If you go too long, then you're just talking about some vintage watch that's somewhat rare/pricey (think a Heuer chronograph).

    Your Spork is a good example. I'm not sure I have any, but staying with Seiko, I'd say the original Cocktail Time might be in there, or the Alpinist, though those are recent enough that you can still find NOS around. Going back a little farther, the older Alpinists (especially the HAQ one) seem like they are desired.

    Right.
    So, I added that second part -- MUST BE DESIRED by other WISs.
    Plenty of old, rare watches are not always desired anymore.

    I have sold my Rolex Ex 114270 so can't list it, but sure many others will.
    So, my Longines Military limited Re-edition. Several members have asked me about this watch.

    I'm not sure how in demand it is but I've seen some WTB and some other posts to that effect.

    Orient Star WZ0011DD. Similar to the popular automatic model but no date, handwind, sapphire crystal and a gorgeous sunburst dial that I struggle to capture. I set an eBay alert and managed to pick one up at a good price.
