Thread: Balance restored - New Daytona content.

    Balance restored - New Daytona content.

    A little over a week ago I made a mistake in selling my 2010 Daytona black dial.

    I am happy to report that I have managed to replace it with a NOS 2008 complete UK watch for only a little more which for me has a preferable clasp, feels better constructed and has less moving parts. Win on every level.






    This one won't be going anywhere.

    I now have my perfect Land, Air and Sea combo.

    Land - Daytona 116520
    Air - GMT Master II 16710
    Sea - AP ROO Diver 15703 OR PAM 232 1938

    Very nice indeed and well done. Let that be a lesson to you, flipping is not good - you wouldn't catch me doing it

    Land / Air / Sea is a great way to do a three watch collection, I'd never thought about that...

    I have an old Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch that would cover 'space' but to be honest thats not going to be an everyday occurrence. It sees very little wrist time sadly, less than it deserves!









    Plus technically the Rolex Cosmograph was made with the space in mind but NASA deemed the Speedy to be the winner.

    I think that Daytona will become a classic. Well done on getting a replacement so quickly!

    I think "space" could be covered by the GMT to as these were the choice of quite a few astronauts in 1675 guise

    Gotta respect Daytona, once you are under the spell there's no turning back, mine will be the last watch I ever sell.IMG_1096.JPG

    Glad you took a minimal hit!

    I guess if NOS its kind of like having a service and upgrade for a decent price!!!

    I have a weird relationship with my white version and trying to resist using it towards buying an Aquanaut
