Well I'm looking for a solid budget diver to accompany my SKX007. I recently sold my Orient Mako USA first edition and really wanted the second recently released version with updated (hacking) movement, removal of second pusher, among a couple other minor changes. The price is about $375 right now.
Then I saw the new Ray II with the same new movement and second pusher delete. And it's only listing for $185 or less.
My question is, what is the general opinion on whether the sapphire and solid end links is worth the price difference between the two.
Anyone own these and have opinions on either? Should I spring for the new USA for the extra $200?
