To get this out of the way, this incoming makes no financial sense at all--none. BUT it really is the only watch out there that I have been craving, and I was able to "cover" the price with recent sales and a trade, which also helps with my ever continuing consolidation goals. When it comes down to it, while the prices for this one will eventually come down (probably), I don't think it will be anytime soon, and I have no relationship with an AD to make an MSRP purchase a realistic choice. Plus, I paid/traded well over retail for the DaytonaC a year or so ago and it only seems to have gone higher (similar to both Pateks). Bottom line, I really do think this is one that will stick for the long haul, but as it stands I am way ahead on all past Rolex purchases and sales so if I do sell and take a big loss, then so be it -- I have made more than enough on prior Rolex sales to cover it. Here it is, the steel Pepsi--and damn it is cool!
