Seiko Monster SKZ277K1 – $1,900
Seiko Monsters are well known for their collectibility, especially when it comes to limited releases. This Seiko Monster SKZ277K1 was released in 2010, and limited to only 1,881 pieces. The watch itself is in mint condition, and comes with the full set, consisting of the original box, papers, torch, and bracelet links. One minor downside is that flaking is visible on the box, due to Thailand’s climate. This is a good chance to bag a collectible Monster which doesn’t appear on the market all too often. However, the asking price is slightly high; one sold two weeks ago on eBay for $1,550.

As a result of Ming’s astronomical rise to stardom within the micro-brand community over the past 3 years, demand for their pieces are at an all time high, with their models fetching above retail on the secondary market. The Ming 17.01 Anthracite was Ming’s first watch, released in 2017 with a retail price of just $900, and limited to 150 pieces for both the black and blue dial variations. This listing with an asking price of $2,900 comes with a full set, consisting of original box, papers, warranty card and three ming straps (two unworn, one lightly worn). A decent bargain, considering Ming’s momentum; the last recorded sale of for this watch in our database was priced at $3,700. However, keep in mind that this item is shipping from Sydney, so taxes may play a factor in the final price.
Omega Speedmaster X-33 (3291.50) – $2,750
When it comes to watches that have been on the moon, the Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional has stolen the limelight for too long. What if i told you that NASA Astronauts are given a choice of the mechanical Speedmaster, or the ana-digital Omega X-33?
This second generation Omega X-33 is not only in good condition, but is also a full set, consisting of original box, owner’s manual, warranty cards, tags, and all original bracelet links. Most notably, the seller claims they are the original owner, having purchased the watch in 2010. While the asking price of $2,750 is a bit higher than the market average of $2,300, we feel that these aforementioned factors justify the higher price.
You thought the Paul Newman Daytona or Rolex Military Submariner are rare? What if i told you this Tudor Monte Carlo 7031/0 Dark Side Home Plate is harder to find than both of the aforementioned. With a black dial also known as the ‘Dark Side Home Plate’, this isn’t your typical Tudor Monte Carlo 7031/0. Only a dozen or so pieces are known to exist, making it one of the rarest vintage pieces on the market. The last sale we found was at Blackwell Auctions’ estate auction on August 9th, 2019 for $92,000. This reputable seller from California is asking $88,000.
