I finally liquidated enough of the collection to fund the purchase. I was torn between the UX and the U1, but I finally made my choice. I've included some pics as well. I know it's not a bit different than any other U1, but it is kinda cool to post a pic and know that it's MY wrist that it's on after years of drooling! I'm still gonna have to have a UX GSG9 model though. I'm saving my pennies! Take care everyone, and thanks for all of your advice.
