It's the Marathon Pilot Chronograph (CSAR) which I have long had a desire to own.

A 7750 powered version of the Jumbo Diver I used to own, which I sold as part of the consolidation to get my C60 Trident Chrono P'type, and have missed ever since.

Got the opportunity to pick one up but am stumbling over what to sell to fund it. Might have to be the Trident Chrono P'type and one other; about the only way to balance funds and collection. :problem:

Hobby? Hobby you say? I thunk it was a lifestyle choice, like wearing high heels on a Saturday night!

Ooops, did I say that out loud? :oops:

I admire your willpower to adhere to the one in, one out mantra. I tried to do that for a while, then thought sod it :lol:
Thanks Patrick.

Buy one / sell one remit is a long standing agreement I have with my darling wife; whom I have no wish to upset.

I didn't think I'd be selling my Trident Prototypes either, but needs must (consolidating to raise the cash for something nice).
As long as you are happy to a) sell it, b) see someone else wearing it and c) don't take a huge financial hit by selling then go for it.
Current collection incl Citizen, G-Shock, Rolex, Seiko, Sinn & Tag.

That needs some careful thinking Guy that prototype is unique and you do enjoy wearing it so think long hard before parting with it as it's unreplaceable.

Gentlemen - thank you sincerely for your thoughts and advice, thus giving me a lot to think about.

A substantial tide of opinion to swim against to sell the Protochrono and don't worry, I don't think I'll be selling my Damasko or C8 Regulator any time soon either.

I guess the dream should be to get the Marathon Pilot Chronograph another day, another way and enjoy my current collection as it is for the time being.

Sweet dreams all.

Is the 'Sieko SKX013' in your watch list in fact a 'Seiko SKX013', or a Chinese version?!

Took me a minute or so to get that one. It's amazing how the brain re-interprets what the eye sees...

Good alternative to the C9 WT P'type (which IIRC your wife now has).

Prefer the steel case myself, too.

I've never spent more than £500 on a watch (which is already a chunk of change for me), but I have decided it's time to take the plunge on something a little more upmarket. Will likely take 2 years to save up, but the mission is on!

I will be ordering from Damasko directly, so that I can order it with the same blue second hand that is on the DC56 8)
