$10 dived by 25 days is only about forty-cents a day.
In other words, if I bought this watch from Amazon, where it's presently selling for ten-bucks more than on this drop, I could conceivably be wearing it TOMORROW (thanks to Amazon's new 1-day shipping) vs waiting the twenty-five plus days it's going to take MASSDrop to conclude the drop and ship it to me.
So, is it worth the extra forty-cents per day? I'd say YES. Of course that's easy for me to say, because...I'm not into dress watches and I'm not an Orient-guy either! I'm just tossing out the proposition to those of you who are. I know a lot of you are into this watch (they're great-looking and very reliable) so I'm curious to hear what you're going to decide; here or there?
Now, if this drop was for a Seiko SRPC44, and Amazon's price was ten-bucks more, than MD's with next-day shipping, I damn sure wouldn't wait a minute longer to save the difference. On the other hand, it turned out that damn SRPC44 is nearly $30 more on Amazon this morning, than it was on eBay! So you know what I did? I ordered it on eBay and now I'm going to have to wait for it!
Goes to show ya--the value of instant gratification is a fairly relative thing!
