    Does this count as a windfall?

    While my search for the perfect Bluering continues, it appears that a distracted me overpaid one of my credit card by the sum of $450. Received the check back in the mail today. So, armed with $450 I thought I'd already spent, what could be a better way than possibly buying a new watch to add to the collection? My Bluering search is yielding little fruit and fewer watches, so I feel a ULF style failure is in the works. But, I need a watch on which to fail.

    Let's cap it at $500
    New or used, as long as it's readily available used
    43-46mm
    Preferably on leather or rubber (no steel unless it has drilled lugs)
    Automatic strongly preferred
    Strong lume a definite plus
    A little color would be nice; my whole collection is beginning to look like The Big Sleep minus Martha Vickers

    Don't say 007/009 or Monster, because it won't happen. Too small.

    Now I've been a little obsessed with Marathon for a while, and I've been thinking a JSAR or GSAR might fit the bill; of course they're not perfect, as the JSAR is quartz and the GSAR is too small.




    So neither technically fall into the size range. Find me something guys, or this money is just going to accrue interest!

    You know as soon as you spend this money 3 BlueRings will pop up on the sales forum don't you?? HaHa No, that would be MY luck!! If your interested in the Marathon watches I say go for it! Until you finally get one you'll lust over them endlessly! I did for 6 months before getting mine, then it was too small and I sold it!! (GSAR) I then found an awesome deal on an excellent condition TSAR and knowing it would be too small I thought I could learn to live with it for the "steal" of a price I got it for......Nope, sold it a week later! IMO if you gonna get one get the JSAR, because the bezel diameter of the GSAR/TSAR is a tad over 40mm and the dial is only 28mm which makes it look like a baby watch!
    Buy the seller! "Trust but Verify" quote- Ronald Reagan....

    Pffft, buy something else so the Watch Gods will make a Bluering pop up. It may be the best way to have one appear on the sales forum.

    Raza, you have permission to ULFail. Carry on!

    Haha, great post in light of...ahem...recent events.

    Now if I can just find a Breitling SuperOcean Heritage 46 for $500, I'll be a happy camper.

    Also, counting the posts (discounting my own) until I get the obvious suggestion.

    I think you may be right. Okay, so the frontrunner right now is still the JSAR. GSARs are too expensive.
