You have the BLRO so you can probably relate but i feel the same way about it and the 5711...

When i didn't have it sure maybe I would entertain a premium. Once you own it you know its not worth the premium, and retail is fine. And doing it all over again I would never have chosen the premium route to get it sooner.

Nothing against the watch but people are buying into the idea that its something more than it is. On your wrist that goes away really quick. Still a great watch, but its not the watch driving this, it's the need to buy something you cant get.
