    It’s a good looking Tuna but €4,500 is a little eye-watering

    This is one of the few Ltd editions I still covet.

    That model is superb. I also like the the one with the bright blue shroud but the prices have doubled now.

    This is the model that forms part of the 55th anniversary set. Some box set.

    The back ground music was enough to put me off buying that box set..worse than being on hold, while trying to get through to virgin airlines.. regarding a cancelled flight refund.

    The price for the set of three is ridiculous. The background music is bad but that can be muted.

    The only thing that could make that video better is the reviewer wearing a mitten on their other hand.
    They obviously ran out of the poncy white gloves reviewers often wear so they got their Gran to knit a replacement.

    The Tuna is a nice watch but expensive. All three donít look that special to be honest.

    I actually laughed out loud at the glove, despite already having seen the comments on it!

    Even by LE price standards that does seem a lot of cash.

    New tuna for 2020

    The new tuna comes out in July 2020 both in 1000&300m model.
    I was contemplating getting the 300m but at £1300 itís a stiff price.
    Iím now awaiting on arrival the SBBN033 brand new from gonomon watches.

    The new 2020/model comes with sapphire and the new original hands .
    But itís not £600 better than the SBBN033 for a cosmetic upgrade and Sapphire Crystal.
    Also no MM on the dial.
    I had the SBBN015 and sold it which was a great mistake.

    That was a mistake for sure!

    I have the SBBN017 mounted on the brilliant 015 bracelet, picked the 017 up on here for a nudge over £500 and it won't be going anywhere looking at new edition pricing.

    I'm looking forward to reading reviews on the SBDX035. Arguably, it is what the SBDX011 should have been IF it had been casted to closely follow the footsteps of the SBDX005 and the original Grandfather.

    It's RRP of £3900 makes Tudors look like bargains. I will have to rationalize harder than usual to buy it.
