    Screwback G DW500SL Professional Help Needed

    After many years of collecting expensive watches, i found out that the screw back DW5000SL is one of the best bargains in the watch world.
    I bought a new one on German Ebay for only € 60,-

    Here comes the dilemma:
    Somewhere in the watchforums I read "Get a spare bezel, while they are available.."
    Great idea!
    So I searched for a spare bezel and a spare strap.
    I found them for ca € 30,- and I thought :"€ 30 for bezel + strap is to much, when I can get a complete new watch for € 60..."

    So I ordered a second DW5000SL.
    After a few days, I thought: "I need at least one spare bezel and strap for my two identic watches. I should buy them, while they are available..."

    Again I thought, bezel and strap for 30?! To expensive! I ordered a complete new watch (No.3!) for 60.

    Now I am thinking, for this three identic watches, I need at least one spare bezel and a spare strap

    What should I do now?

    Spare parts for the DW-5600E will certainly be around for some time, particularly the standard colors.

    Hey,
    I've owned my first the DW5000SL since March of 2009. I just purchased 2 more Spike Lee DW5000SL's. I now have a total of 3 Spike Lee DW5000SL's in my collection. I'm always wearing my older DW5000SL all the time in rotation with my DW5600E-1V, G5600E Solar and DW6600-1V.
    The DW5000SL is an excellent watch! I love the all stainless steel case and the screw back a lot.
