BTW, I am in the construction industry, I can't believe the abuse this watch has taken and it still looks great.
I certainly want a rolex, but the ones I'm looking at all range into the $8k - $14k brand new. Even at $5k, let's say I find one, I feel the value to "oh shit I spent too much on a watch" ratio is too great in my mind's eye. I'm liking the Sinn U1 though, very classy and seemingly well built and high quality.
