Good point, badern--thank you ... I do hope the Sumo will have a long production run so that a lot more people could discover and enjoy it, even second hand.badern said:Both SS amd Ti Sammys are discontinued. They were both popular divers when they were around. I am sure even with the release of Sumo and the new Ti 6R15 diver there are collectors who prefer the angular shape of the Sammies. So its not surprising to see prices going up when they are no longer available brand new.
IMO its better to get a Sammy now than a Sumo. Sumos are new models (relatively) and should be around for years to come. Whereas Sammies willk probably hold their price quite well and even appreciate.
That sucks, glad to hear you found a replacement.LUW said:I had a SBDA003 that was stolen in December, and was looking for a replacement ever since. Only last week was I able to close a deal on one from Greece (left Greece on the 31st here to Brazil :-[ ). At least for me it was pretty tough to find one.
Sorry to hear of that, Luciano... Here's my previous SBDA003 next to my Oris Ti (both gone)... the blue works really well on Ti, IMO, more so than black.LUW said:Thanx Dave! The Sammy became a grail for me - honestly, I would rather get the SBDA003 then a PO or a Oris Ti or even a Fifty Fathoms that previously ruled my horological fantasies.
