Trev,

Oddly like this one. Not a fan of LEs but this one looks to be a solid offering from a well respected company at a reasonable price. Wish they had a real one to look at, even in pics, too.

I've never "felt" any "internet, pre-order it from a drawing" watch. If I can't "feel it" I'll never "feel it."

Funny, I'm just the opposite. Nearly none of my watches are ones that I had handled prior to purchase. I've flipped a few in my time Rolling Eyes but I've also got a pretty good track record for keepers. Inasmuch as I like Seikos and Sinns its kinda hard to handle them prior to purchase.

If I want cheap quartz watches, yup - otherwise, nope. I've never been able to handle an 007/009 or Monster locally, let alone a Sumo or MM300. Nor is their a Sinn AD, a Mido AD, a Bernhardt AD, etc. in the State. I read a lot of others reports on watches that catch my eye, use Google Images to look at as many photos as I can find, ask specific questions of those who own them, etc. in order to gain an appreciation of the watch I might be interested in owning. I had never handled a Sinn prior to buying mine. Had never seen a Sumo in the flesh prior to buying mine. Etc., etc., etc.
