    All I can say is he was ripped off! There's one on ebay for $339K obo. So with a best offer he could have saved $200K and flown out to pick it up. Due diligence...

    Edit: Without the diamonds BS... $300K obo from the same seller. The newest version with the date wheel, which I prefer. Just saying...
