    What's special about 2008 for the Sub?

    Oh, nothing particular in the watch world. It's just the version I have. Although it was the version that started to have rolex etched around the inside ring, and before they made it beefier around the edge. For me I like it more than the new updates.

    Plus it was before the prices rocketed. I paid 3.3k...new ones are like 6.5k now. I could sell mine tomorrow for 6k which surprised me a little.

    I sold a half gold / blue sub many years ago for £2500 :(

    Oh and a Panerai 104 for £1400

    And a seamaster auto for £550

    Ouch. Not suggested you needed to sell, but I would hopefully not sell either unless I needed the money to put a roof over my head.

    Surprised to see the 2000 year seamaster chronometer going for a couple grand too. Bought that in 2001 new for £1100

    I went through a phase of not keeping stuff long, they were all sold to fund new ones

    I have a 45mm planet ocean that I bought brand new for £1450 so that will be in profit :D

    I use it as a holiday watch, for beach and if we do any quad biking etc as it seems tougher than my others

    It is indeed fella, saw it at Baselworld last year and made enquiries - apparently only the second one in Scotland to appear at the boutique and everyone is skint in January so they got to me on the waiting list :D

    Im like the Dark Sides quite a bit, think that one shares the same case too just everything else is changed around.

    I hate you. I would have had it :p Still not scratched my PAM itch!! One day... apparently my wife thinks there are many more important things to purchase (she wants a new car too!) than a Panerai for me. I think she's wrong personally
