    WWYD?

    I found ano unexpected deal on anew FC 200G5S36 at a retail store and it caught me completely off guard. The store in question tends to be a clearance house of sorts with end of line or last of the lot sales. I literally started sweating when I saw it. I thought I might find a decent deal on a fashion brand or at best a Seiko. I realize it's not one of FC's top line autos, but is it worth the $299 they had it on for? It had boxes and papers, protective film all around - it was literally in brand new retail condition. What do you guys think?

    I should have probably just bought it, as I had the option to return it unused.

    Where did you find it?! If you don't buy it, I sure will!

    I think it's a good buy. While I don't need one, my watch box is currently missing a black dial dress watch, so I'd seriously consider buying this watch if I happened across one at that price. The quartz movement means it will be a convenient grab and go piece, and service costs should be negligible.

    I could pick it up and either drop it in the mail for you from Canada or next time I'm in Michigan. Although I wouldn't be buying it for myself, it would kind of cure an itch.

    Lol, tempting but no! My personal goal is to work my collection down to be smaller and more concise, for which there will only be one dress watch spot (currently occupied by another FC dress watch I'm happy with).
