    To Sell a U-Black or Not?

    Alright guys, I think I know what I should do, I just need to be pushed over the edge...

    A while back, I decided I needed to find a U-Black. I was sure of it. So I started searching. Months passed. I finally found one , lnib, in Singapore. I've told the whole story here before, so I won't make you sit through it again, but suffice it to say, it's the best "found the watch I was looking for" story I've got. By far.

    It's a sexy watch. Like, badass sexy.

    But. I think I've worn it.... Three times? I've even got it on a black U1 bracelet, which I think really completes it. It's Batman's watch. I just can't handle the thought of the black showing wear.

    Now, I've got other LEs, more monetarily valuable ones, that I don't have this problem with, so why this one?

    Should I sell it? I know I'll never get another one in this kind of shape...

    Is it "too Sinny a Sinn" to let go? Does it "deserve" to go to someone who'll wear it??

    Arg.

    It's your call. Personally, I wouldn't buy a watch with pvd/dlc/any black coating because it would bother me when it starts to wear/scrape off. If this doesn't really bother you, then wear and enjoy it. However, if this is something that will bother you, I would sell it and get out of it while it is still in great shape.

    I guess the other option is to wear it with impunity and just pay the piper whatever pretty penny it costs to get the whole thing recoated someday. If you really like it that much, it might be worth doing that.

    What in the hell is a U-Black? Anyway, if you want a black watch that does not wear, buy a Damasko.

    I have had one black U1, a U1 white dial. I sold it when I needed to raise some funds and regret it. That was a beautiful watch. Cheers, Bill P.

    We had a lot to do with that one being produced. They didn't have enough faith in their dial maker to go with a fully lumed version for us. Oh well, no sense crying over spilt milk.

    I don't know about you but I know I would regret selling it. In my opinion that is the limited edition of all limited editions. I think there were only 300 produced for the Japanese market.

    Very, very cool watch that, as you are well aware, doesn't just pop up in any sales forum every day.

    Yep, selling my U1 W was a big mistake! If I were you, I would not sell a U-black. Cheers, Bill P.

    Here was my U1 trio



    The U1 W had interesting lume
