    how is it that dinky sells out of 250 these likity split @ 23 hundo?

    this should be only slightly more than the 8-1k street price watch like their 65...but 3x as much cost...gtfo

    it looks like peeps are willing pay more as well. looking at the bay one sold for best offer that was listed for 34.

    I think you are referring to Hodinkee selling these for $2.3k if I understand the hilarious translation...I enjoy them.

    Yes, I don’t understand the phenomenon either- I don’t see how this is any different than the standard larger 65 series other than a color scheme. But it is Hodinkee, and they make their own brand of special.

    People are paying 70k for a 5711, this seems much less dumb...

    I've had more than 1 drink and my post makes more sense than the OP.

    I realize that it must be quite a challenge for a race horse

    to communicate with humans in any sort of meaningful and lucid way, especially after its recent demise, but it really would be a great help if you could stick to some semblance of an internationally recognized form of English.

    Dinky? I understood this:-

    Hundo? Is that Esperanto? Why would dogs need any Dinky toys and how would they go about sharing 250 toys amongst 23 dogs?

    8-1K is like 65 but x3? -992 is like 21.67? What?

    And it seems that the dogs have some competition from these guys

    Who apparently paid 34 according to this guy 3391ADC8-77D3-454B-8AD1-96DDF323760F.jpeg

    I have no F::censored::g idea what you are talking about; which is a pity because the watch looks quite nice.

    Let's not forget that "anything dinky" is also a license to price gouge at resale... I'll bet most of these will pop up on various forums in the next couple of months

    it's redick.

    the whole psychology behind LE and their exclusivity and the peeps that buy them amazes me to no end.

    peeps cannot get enough, and don't mind paying a premium..these watches are going for 3k on the bay now...

    With the greatest of respect sir, your obscure choice of vocabulary is a constant barrier to the effective exchange of ideas on this international forum. @Rman raised this issue with you almost a year ago, sadly to little effect.

    “Do you feel misunderstood? It may be what you’re putting out into the universe friend. No problems on this forum we’re from all over the world all different backgrounds. But I think you’ll find if you don’t take a different tone you won’t get to enjoy all this place has to offer.”

    It's a bog standard well made Oris, nice enough, but in no way is it worth twice as much.
