i need to ask this as i am very close to plonking down for one.... why are so many sumos flipped??
especially puzzling to me as there is extra effort in sourcing them being a jdm watch and ive nary seen a bad word said of them yet so many are sold soon after purchase
Pretty popular watch. Number of flips relative to number of them out there. I doubt any higher or less than other models, you just see more of it because there are more of them.
There's always going to be some people that buy one for the first time and then decide for whatever reason it's not for them, but that doesn't mean there's some big secret, singular reason why they get flipped...
The Sumo is a fine watch except IMHO the 20mm lug width should have been 22mm or 24 mm. Also I like wearing my divers on rubber and the gap between strap and case was the deal breaker for me.
So to answer your question, no I will not be re-acquiring a Sumo.

Anybody got any pics of the orange faced Sumo on rubber strap?
What's the deal with the "rubber strap gap" I've read about? Is that a big deal?
