What makes these so much more expensive than the meteorite DM4? Is the NE88 mov't that much more pricey? I admit, I know squat about this mov't.

I believe all you have to do is Sign Up.
Actually that could be incorrect unless something has changed. If it was automatic with sign-up everyone would have it. When Wing launched Aragon he set it up automatically for some long time customers. As Scantor aka Steve mentioned. I never signed up for anything to become a VIP. If something has changed ... Post a link for others to "sign up".

I don't have a watch with the SII NE88. I have the Invicta 0741 with the NE78, which was the older version. I'm torn between the white and brown, but if I were to take a shot, it would probably be the lume dial in the 45mm. Brown looks good, but hard to get an accurate idea of the color in photos. I also like how Wing did the hour hand in blue and seems to subtly blend in with the blue haze lume dial. The black font including the date wheel pops the most out of all four colors. That's the method to my madness.

The $450 intro price is absolutely ludicrous. This might be the best value watch buy of any brand at the moment.

It's a good deal, but to say it might be the best is a bit of a stretch, but also subjective. Based strictly on price and being an automatic chronograph with a sapphire crystal, this one is a better price. Would I buy it? Hell no! I am not a fan of a pressed on case back.

That's a really good deal for an auto chronograph, but it's definitely built to a less expensive price point than the DM4. Leather strap vs stainless steel. Press-on caseback vs screw down. Lume only on hands. Fixed painted bezel vs 120 click rotating ceramic w lume. 100m WR. 21,600 vph vs 28,800 vph. I'll also assume no AR coating since it's not mentioned.

We can dance around specs all day. The post seemed to be a blanket statement. It did not go into specifics.

I know all the facts about the movement, lume, ceramic bezel, etc. I mentioned the value on the NE88 movement alone earlier. As I said, anything is going to be subjective no doubt.

All of your points are valid UT. The Tissot posted was based solely on price. Even without using the $20.00 code the $319.00 comes in $179.96 less factoring the cost to my door in my neck of the woods. The lower build quality, etc. could be somewhat justified by the almost $200.00 price difference.

I was contemplating to do a mod for a friend of mine. He asked Wing if it would work and was told the parts are interchangeable. I think Wing scared him when he said the bezel would fit the cases. "The problem is the bezel spring was made very precise and would be difficult to remove." I'm actually glad because I don't mind risking damage to my stuff, but with other folks stuff that's a different story. I ponied up the $498.96 to see if it would be feasible. I wanted to check out the movement anyhow.

Yeah based on price alone, the Tissot is a sweet, sweet deal. Frankly, I was shocked that an auto chrono Tissot would be that price! I like that Wing provides all those other "nice to haves" that really up quality and value-per-dollar that only watch enthusiasts like us would notice/care about.
