    Need advice on a trade from you experts..

    So as a side moneymaking venture I have all 3 tiers of watch gangs subscriptions. This month for the $300 platinum tier I received an Out Of Order Automatic in black that is pictured with this post. While I'm sure they're good watches, I don't see the appeal at all and ill die before that watch takes a spot in my keepers case.

    I've been offered quite a few watches but I've narrowed it down to 2 that I like for aesthetic reasons. Now I need to figure out which to choose as far as value. I like them equally for looks and needs for my collection so I'm really just looking for highlights and potentially any lowlights that stand out.

    I'm sure a lot of you are already familiar with the sharkmaster but I'm including a specs sheet for the Mercer.

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Take the Mercer. The Sharky's just a Chinese clone of a Seiko MM and won't retain value very well.

    IMHO.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    Mercer has the better movement. The STP1-11 is Swiss high beat, a clone of the ETA-2824.
