    I thought it sounded fishy. I can't find anything online about it either

    Raising RRP a significant amount would be short-sighted on their end. I agree that they like the "scarcity" they have created, but we are in a good global economic period. Just a few years ago they had tons of SS models sitting in cases. If the economy takes a downturn (matter of "when" and not "if), then they will REALLY struggle to sell watches. Especially when you consider what you can get at a higher price from better makers.

    Well, if it was back in 2009, when I saw it after first release, I felt exactly like Dan, and thought it one of the most beautiful watches ever! I still regard it as the most beautiful PO. Over the years I have lusted after it. Too late for me now, though, and even if I got one it would likely not spend much time on my wrist. Plus the fact I cannot afford it now. I still think Dan should keep the Sub, and that is very difficult for me to say. Also, heís one of my favourite and most respected guys on the forum, so I wouldnít feel at all right ďcashing inĒ on his dilemma.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Keep the Sub.

    Keep the POLE also -- put it in its box in the basement, forget you own it, and let its value continue to accrue.

    Let A year (or less) pass.

    "Find" the POLE while looking for that obscure garden tool/irish sweater/bubble wrap in the basement, fall in love with it all over again, and buy all of us enablers in this thread a fine double whiskey in thanks.

    This is easy! Just keep them all and get rid of everything else that you dont need or even want. lol, just kidding. Not really sure which direction to go in.

    Difficult decision Dan.

    I would keep the PO and if you can also the Sub. Prices on the latter will continue to rise. However, if you need to free funds the Sub will sell easily.

    I was first on the list with our famous FAD for the PO LMLE. We werenít sure if it would be 42 or 45 mm but once confirmed 42mm I didnít pursue it. Itís a beauty but I like my 45mm POs. They fit me personally better and I buy watches for me.

    I did fashion my PO to look a lot like the LMLE with a new dial, hands and bezel but the LMLE may just be perfect including the size for the majority.

    Donít know your situation Dan but once you sell off other stuff maybe you can keep both :). Iíd hate to see you sell the PO even to one of the good guys here.
