Absolutely gorgeous but too big for my tastes. If you've got Paul Bunyan forearms then go for it.

If you don't mind buying used I'd go that route. There are quite a few on the watch forums. If you go retail you should easily be able to get 30%. I'd go with the sapphire version mostly because I don't like hesalite nor do I like having a scratched up watch face. But, I'm not a purist and don't really give a shit about being "true to the original" or whatever that means.
