Nice to have.  I believe that they were orginally priced around $3700 but the Cobra book and special case did run it up to around $5000.  I have been looking for the first series with the blue watch dial. 8)

That's a really cool piece.  I looked at one a few years back while in Las Vegas on vacation.  Good stuff!

Ruben, I thought you were a big Timex collector?

In the intetest of full sisclosure, I know nothing about expensive watches. Just curious, is the Cobra on the lense sitting on the 12 when it should be sitting on the 6? Not trying to be critical, just asking. Ya'll help educate me.
Thanks
Ted

Yeah, but I had to keep changing batteries all the time.  Pun intended  ;D.

This watch is only 2 years old and has been tuned by the MFR since it was new?  Looks like a lot of wear for only 2 years old.  I have a 20 year old watch I wear every day that doesn't have the wear marks this one does.  I guess I'll stick with my sub $500 Swiss Army editions (:
