What's a good price for this? Bnew and pre owned
Brand New, black dial, currently it's around $350. In 2017 I paid $357 (€319). It seems they tried adjusting for inflation (€353) but the dollar is weaker so the difference isn't much. I think it's a good time to still purchase one brand new.

The one I have in particular is the gray dial edition which they don't make anymore, it was limited; pre-owned will be between $50 to $100 above the retail value but one shouldn't pay more than $500.

The black dial is more close to the milsub. Their reason for using a gray dial was for that vintage look which people were split on loving or hating it. I loved it at the time but then I was eyeing the black dial.

Directly from their site. They used to ship real fast pre-coofbug, don't know about now. Great thing about being a US customer is you don't have to pay their VAT.

That gray dial one you're referring to, factory added the wrong bezel. For the OVM the bezel is suppose to have all the minutes marked.

Not sure why the eBay one is considered special lol it's a typical 15-minute marked aluminium bezel. Seller just wants more money 😁

Nice thing about the gray is that under different lighting, it looks different. Lower right lug is the one that is more apparent with the scuff marks, nothing Cape Cod can't handle. Bezel has a few battle scars, showing them here for sake of honesty.
