With the $1K limit set almost 10 years ago, I figure inflation, at the very least, gives us some wiggle room, especially if it's under $2K. I know I have some watches purchased 5 years ago that were under $1K when purchased new (and posted here), but now new versions sell in the $1K - $1,500 range.

A couple of late model Sumos with matchy-match shoes. Posting before Seiko raises the prices out of PMWT territory.

Oddly enough, different days, but same trousers.
I’ve been selling off watches lately to thin out my collection but I’ve been really tempted by some of the new Sumos. I’ve already got 3 though and it’s hard to justify another. The SPB179 caught my eye recently:

Dammit! I wasn't even aware of that one!

Gotta call Rob at Toppers now. Still just eeking in the PMWT limit...

Your enthusiasm pushed me over the edge! Mine should be on my wrist early next week.

Okay I guess it's time to ask for recs. Can any Casio fans point me to a G-Shock like the DW-5600BB that's blacked out, but easier to read and good for smaller wrists?

300m water resistant quartz, 45mm case. they sell the non-chrono versions with automatic movements, 43mm case on those. I like how the blue hints in the center of the dial fade to black at the edge. Arrived on a good rubber strap, which I swapped for the zulu. Great value proposition, mid-300s for quartz, mid 400s and up for autos, depending on whether you go strap or steel bracelet.
