I tried a 3 year old one on a few weeks back and they wanted a grand more than the new price! Nice watch though. Would love one myself
Cheers now, Paul

Dave I reckon you need to critically consider how many ceramic Submariners/Sea-Dwellers you really need. I know a chap who would take either off your hands. :)

So after trying a Damasko a watch I'd previously dreamed about I'm now moving onto alternatives. One similar and one not

Sinn 556 a bit smaller than the Damasko

Nomos club a watch I've owned before fits well and I regret selling

Time to think now

Mostly money at the time I felt it would be better spent doing the house up. But since then I've been left a little money and sold some watches so I wouldn't feel the same now

Great. If it's money, it's a fair enough reason to reacquire one. It had been a "I felt it was too big/small/tall/round/white/fancy/plain/lacking in detail x" reason, I'd counsel against getting another.

From memory the only compromise was the length of the lugs but I can live with that. Other than that the size was spot on even the lug to lug was fine. The Mrs even liked it as well and the same can't be said for the damasko

I already own the white-dialled version. Today I want the dark one.

Thing is, sometimes I think about selling the white one.
Plus I already have a similar-ish dark dialled watch.
And There is certainly no "need" for it in my collection.

Still want it, though.

Tell me it's madness.
