IMO, at the price point there is no SKX that is hackable with handwind.

Yeah no way would I trade my skx173 on PU for one, but features on paper do look great for the price, 21k beat movement, bracelet, hack/hw, blue dial & bezel look nice enough... is that, curved or flat crystal?

Its a flat crystal with a slightly curve bezel. Again I am not saying the orients (ray ii, mako ii) are better, BUT for the price of what you get its a better bang for your buck. I think most people go with the SKX is for style and it iconic.

Yeah I agree, great bang for the buck on paper. I think you wouldn't have gotten such fervent reaction from those guys had you just phrased it that way, instead of how you led off the OP! lol Idc, I think some casios could be killers too, for the price of what you get.

I won't categorically guess buyers' thought processes. All kinds of motivations/perceptions.

I've purchased about 10 things from mass drop over the last few years and they were all delivered eventually. They have a shipping model where your order typically is scheduled to be delivered months later. They are a legit seller.

Recently had an order that didn't ever show up. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE to the point that I will not shop there any more.

As a rule, most of the items they sell can be purchased somewhere else for a few bucks more and shipped immediately so yeah I learned my lesson with this seller. They are really not worth dealing with especially, for the time when things do not not go as planned.
