Sounds like a good deal - go for it.I have been a knocker of HB in the past, based on their often outrageous mark-ups on regular stock. Of course, Harrolds and American Tailors (in Melbourne) are not any better.

Zzzzz from me today too:

I may, in time, trade my Sub for a more traditional 5513, like yours. I am enjoying the...
I traded my 14060M for this 'transitional' 5513 (transitional because it has white gold surrounds and acrylic crystal):
