fab looking watch(es)!
I wonder how can orient Brazil make money by only producing 29 watches for this edition?
I mean they can't be charging too much for the Orient.
Time,

Of course these watches were/are produced in large scale. But they (Orient) picked out a limited number in both issues for dial and caseback personalization for the relogios mecanicos forumers. So the stock versions of these 2 watches have different dial colors and lack the commemorative inscription on the caseback and the LIMITED SERIES number (like LUW's 05/29).

As for prices, can't say much about the RM1 stock version, since I don't own one. But in the RM2 (or Poseidon, as it got nicknamed in its stock persona) case I can assure you it's currently being sold for around 400 usd (today's exchange). The RM2/Poseidon is ONE HECK OF A WATCH! Talk about massive beast! Ultimate bang for the money, IMO.

Regards,
CHRIS

Thanks for the clarification Chris.
Thats makes sense.
The 'Poseidon' is one heck of a watch from the pictures I have seen.
Hehe...tell me about it! I got crazy on that one! Managed to score 1 LE version (RM2 yellow dialed, just like Dave Sharkfin's) and then I bought all dial colors! LOL!! Ended up with 4 model variations - yellow, orange, black with black bezel and black with coke bezel. 8)
It rivals the ecozilla in beefyness...only the dial face is bigger on the Orient. Size and heft wise they are about the same. And the solid bracelet on the Orient is outstading, lemme tell you. The rubber strap is top notch, too.
