I have always liked the look of the U1 in photos but until today had never seen one.
I am currently in Austria and passed an AD that had a U1 in the window.
I tried it on and really liked it. With the crown at 4 I found it really comfortable and the watch had a real presence without being too big or overpowering. Just a real solid quality feel to it.
I almost bought it. The only reason I didn’t is because it already for some reason had some markings and what looked like a scuff on the clasp.
I know that the clasp will usually be the first thing to scratch and scuff anyway but it should be perfect from new in my opinion.
My question is, does the fully tegimemted version including the bracelet and clasp make a big difference in real world use for example every day desk diving, is will the tegimemted clasp become scratched and scuffed in such use regardless.
Is it worth paying the extra?
