OP, follow your heart in this. There are a lot of watches you won't be able to buy if you put too much thought into it. I owned 2 U-Boat Flightdeck 50mm and Breitling Super Avenger and never really regretted buying them. I also posted similar post here before I pulled the trigger on U-Boat and although my first one was impulsive purchase by all means I enjoyed the heck out of it. As long as the price is right I don't see any reason not to try U-Boat watches.
