Excuse my long absence, but I was unwell for a while & since getting back to work have been super busy, but this is too good not to share.

It's been years since I've been so excited about a "new" watch, but this landed today.

Classic. Maxi dial with OG case was always a great combo.

I really miss my old LV - Matt is right: the 5 digit case and maxi dial/hands are damn near perfect.

Cheers

I traded my Rose Gold Yacht Master for it + some £££££ my way, which was a good deal for a mint, full set, flat 4.

Congrats! Nice score on the flat 4 bezel, too, especially a full set.

I wasn’t a fan when they first came out and I was wrong. Probably my favorite sub model. Congrats.

My favorite sub.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Man that’s really nice . I remember Matt having one up for sale for like 6.5K I passed as I thought it was too much for a Sub :nutkick:

I sold my first LV (pointy 4) for £4,900 in late 2015, along with a BLNR for £5,100 as a cash raising exercise towards the deposit for my son's first house. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

I remember being offered one at an AD in 2008 for under MSRP when I bought my 16600. But then I also had the chance to buy a white Daytona at MSRP at that time. LOL.
