    It came in over the weekend...

    So I finally pulled the trigger and traded a sealed and very hard-to-find LEGO set for an Oakley watch.
    I bought the LEGO set for $150 about 3 years ago and it currently valued at about $1,200.
    The watch is brand new and band hasn't been adjusted yet.
    I just wished it came in a better case though.
    And the watch is a little to big for my wrist but I'll wear it anyway.

    That's a crazy return on your money for the Lego set.

    I'm starting to consider buying up all the Lego sets and hiding them away forever now. :p


    But beautiful watch. :D

    Congrats!!!

    Congratulations. I had no idea a LEGO set could be valued at $1200... that's insane.

    This one...

    A new daily-wearer, my first (and probably the only) Oakley watch - 61Rf-NCLpjL.jpg


    On the picture below, the set on the top-left (dark red and tan) is about $1900 BNIB. The next one (light blue and white) is about $1500.
    The Tie Fighter Advance $500. And the Millennium Falcon $3,500 (msrp was $500). Used/built/displayed ones are about 10%-20% less.

    @OakleyFrankFMJ However, like any type of investments, nothing is guaranteed. Only few sets are sought-after by collectors
    Most will hardly appreciate in value, the worst you can do is break-even.

    This picture shows just how big the millennium falcon compared to the others. 5,000+ pieces, and took me couple weeks to build.

    Great looking watch, congrats. If you don't like it, I'll give you one of my kids' 50 piece LEGO sets so you can have your LEGO's back.
