Green Sumo

I don't know if anybody really needs a green Sumo, but here's one anyway, and it's swell:

"Needing" a watch reminds me of Jim Gaffigan's old joke:

Me: Hey, want a donut?
Him: No thanks, I'm not hungry.
Me: What's being hungry have to do with it?!?
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

No doubt. I had a Sumo, oh, maybe five years back; I paid around $450 for it. Some of the older guys here had Sumos before that, for even less.

Upgrades include a new movement, the 6R35, said to have a 70 hour power reserve, and sapphire for the crystal. If the finishing on it is as good as the one I had, with inflation, I'd guess that the $750 price isn't too far out of line.

in addition, used, the jade sumo can be had for around $475 from what I've seen, considered picking one up a few times.

Moi aussi.

I got one when they were first introduced. Lasted a couple of months. I'm of the "needs a wider bracelet" school. It felt top heavy.
I think Boscoe had one then too.

45mm? That's a nope. Almost 53mm lug to lug? Double nope. It's green, that makes it a triple NOPE.

^ This micro brand is 48 L2L.

Not bad watches just a bit on the upper end for me with the movements (price point that is).

Those are ok. Way too much $$$ though.
