I just bought the new version in almost perfect condition for just under 7k from DavidSW.

Some people like the old generation SUBs. I wanted a new model with the drivers clamp and the ceramic bezel.

In the end its really what you want. but just do your research and don't over pay. The watch in your link seems reasonably priced for what it is.


EDIT:

One thing i noticed in the pics is the watch is missing a lot of links. Just make sure the watch comes with those so you can adjust accordingly..... Might bring the value down also if they are missing.

I have an older SUB with a non ceramic bezel and a GMT Master II with the old bezel, the ceramic wins hands down for appearance

definitely see if you can compare the two side by side and see which one you like better. Good luck!

for me, the glidelock clasp was the deciding factor

it was the main reason i went with the SubC over a GMT/Explorer/16610

Ah that what the clasp is called. Either way its awesome and makes adjusting the watch so f**ing easy.

Some people hate on it, i have no idea why i really enjoy the glidelock
