No idea... its supposedly scheduled for release soon. U'll just have to check on Steinhart's website later.
I hear it will cost about the same as the Triton 30 ATM. Making it cost approximately 400 to 425 Euros.

Eilux? Swiss Kubik? Luxupak? You might have to check if the Luxupak ones have battery-operated units but I'm sure Eilux and Swiss Kubik have.

On another note, one more picture for the Ocean 2 fans:

Specs wise seems to indicate S Link is better. Better battery life and higher vibration counts.

I'm looking at the normal chronograph 300M.
u looking at both quartz... ic ic..
bear in mind resale value of quartz is weaker.
changing battery is cheap.

Tag collection except the iconic Monaco the rest change design every 4-5yrs.
Seamaster depending which U go for, design kinda stay the same over the last 2 decades. it is their iconic model too.

I heard tag got no resale value.

Went to a few 2nd hand watch shop, never see tag. Not that Omega is any better, but at least I've spotted it before at 2nd hand shops. Is it those limited edition ones?

You have better luck trying to sell it in the second-hand market. IMO, the pawnshop should always be the last option as they're probably the biggest rip-offs you'd ever meet.

I've seen JW selling Tags, so I'm sure they must've bought it off someone.

That's the Steinhart Ocean 2, scheduled for release in February 2012.

who say cannot sell? visiotime is carrying preown tags.
issue is shops will offer such low price that many wouldn't want to sell!
it is not like they will reject it, it is seller's issue.
