Yes, I know this sounds insane. I've really connected to my Stowa Flieger -- it's everything I could want in a watch (at the price point). I've had it for about 4-5 years, and I'm nearing the servicing date, and paying $250 is hard to swallow. Beyond that, it's $250 every 4-5 for the rest of my life.
I'm looking for your thoughts on whether it would be crazy to sell my Stowa, buying the Hamilton in Quartz, and pocketing the difference. I know I won't connect with it like my Stowa, but it's just really hard to justify servicing a $900 every 4-5 years. If the watch was an IWC Pilot or something, it would make a lot more sense.
I know this is obviously a personal decision, but I'd like to hear what you guys think.
EDIT: Screw it, I'm keeping it. The servicing fee works out to less than $5 a month. I can forgo McDonalds once a month.
