i have had my eye on this one for awhile and it's finally on its way. The U-Boat U42 GMT limited edition. Tried to trick myself into liking 40mm watches, but my heart didn't go for it:p

Comes on a killer custom strap from Prime straps.





Thanks Jeremy!

Full of bada$$ery!

Love my U-Boat although it is only 43mm. Perfect for my 6.75" wrist.

I love this style and color combo on the dial. I wish I could pull this one off. Congrats!:smile-thumb2:

Thanks. I'm kind of obsessed with their u42 line. I was on a Rolex kick for awhile, and as nice as Rolex watches are, there was just something lacking. I like my watches to have personality and I think that was what was missing from the Rolex watches I tried(sub, sea dweller, explorer) Iconic no doubt, but missing that personality, that uniqueness I desire a watch to have. I even gave the Pelagos another try. U-Boat watches aren't for everyone that's for sure, but there is something about the U42 line that just apeals to me.

U-Boat's watches are just killer, and their straps make me salivate!

I've been infatuated with the bronze Chimera for a very long time. Someday ...

Very jealous of you!!!!!

You've GOT to post lots of pics when that gem arrives!

Oh, I will post a ton my friend. The Chimera is amazing. That's been on my list as well. The U42 "Arnie" is also on my list, but too much $$$$$ for me though.

Hahahaha. It's all about flipping and saving, flipping and saving and some more flipping. That's why I flip watches so much, so I can get to what I want. I've flipped so much that I haven't technically paid for a watch for over a year now.

As a noob to watch collecting, I'm starting to realize that this is probably how I'm gonna fund my future purchases. Thanks for the tip, great_mazinger. :)

It's honestly the best way to do it. It takes time and patience but you get to handle a ton of different watches to really see what's out there and if you do it right, you end up making profit along the way. I will never buy a brand new watch for the reason you lose so much $$$$ that way. There are really nice preowned watches that are as close to new condition that you can pick up at a savings.
