    Am I an idiot?

    Guys,

    I really want a Tudor Pelagos and am perplexed if I should sell my minty new Breitling Superocean II 44 to fund the Pelagos. Am I an idiot? Should I sell and get a preowned Pelagos?

    Re: Am I an idiot?

    Been there done that, go look at my long list of watches on my profile...
    I've owned the 42mm version of the new SuperOcean II, and the only thing I disliked about it was the smaller crown, and polished bracelet that the 44mm got right, brushed bracelet and larger crown. The Tudor are a dime a dozen, and are plain by comparasion and look like a toy. Now with that said, I like the Pelagos for what it is, a tool watch, the Breitling plays multiple roles, dress up and ready to be in the Ocean all in one. Were you looking at their in-house movement or the regular ETA?

    If the deal was gonna go down, it would be for a 2 liner eta model.

    No! (That's my job anyway) Go for the Tudor.

    That's a very WIS dilemma. Its gonna cost money whatever you do.
    I'm not particularly a fan of Breitling, but the SO is a great watch, and I'd happily wear it. The Tuder Pelagos is great as well. The only difference is, Tudor is really on a roll right now, you'll never see a critical Tudor review.

    Go for it. Just consider first whether or not you should bump all the way up to a Submariner.

    Go for the in-house movement, you will regret it down the road (resale value too), despite all the 2-liner fans "oh I like two lines better than five on my dial", give me a break, it's an in-house movement with 70+ hours of power reserve. If it was that one, and you had to add some cash, sure why not. You will miss the Breitling, I miss my SOII, it is one of the best Breitlings.

    No you're not. Life is too short not to fulfill your simple desire to own the Tudor.
