I've been agonizing about this for a while now. I've been daily driving a BLRO for the better part of a year now, and recently added a Bluesy Sub for weekends.

Thinking about a Smurf or full YG Bluesy, or maybe even a blue dial DD40.

The Smurf seems like a pretty logical choice for work/rest/play. Can a full YG Bluesy or DD40 be worn as an only watch?

Valuewise, am I in the ballpark for a trade?

Thanks

I wouldn’t do this trade. They’re both great watches

Rather than trade, I actually sold the Bluesy and BLRO locally, and then a deal popped up for the NIB YG Bluesy. Managed to put a few dollars back in my pocket in the process. I'm super pleased. My common sense brain was telling me WG, but my heart wanted that YG Bluesy Sub.

More pics when it lands in a few days.

Now, to figure out what to get as a "beater" :)

I'd recommend being 100% sure you're ready to go bold so the watch doesn't sit in the safe and you regret the purchase.

If you're looking for a nice beater, you can't beat Tudor for the price point. My two cents.

I'm 26 and consolidated down to a YG bluesy for a daily. Life is too short to wait until you are old to enjoy PM.

Gold is still plenty durable for a daily (the really vulnerable part is the mirrored portion of the clasp, which you have on your TT sub anyway).

Unless you personally like the look of WG I would go yellow or rose. The idea of a "stealth watch" is silly... a YG rolex looks like a cheap Michael Kors and a WG/steel rolex looks like a cheap mall watch to the uninformed. Pick the color you actually like.

I would not trade those two stunning watches, I have a Blusey and a Seadweller and love the difference, I also think a full yellow gold watch is to soft for everyday use, but you only can decide in the end

I agree here. OP has a great one-two punch, but like everything else in life, everyone has different flavors.

That's awesome! I've been considering doing the same with a TT bluesey, Wimbledon & Air King. Consolidate if you will.

You sir are an inspiration :)

Both gone, but I managed to get this guy BNIB with a warranty card dated last week, and still managed to pocket a few extra dollars.

Honestly, couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

If you love the TT Bluesy, then this one is a no brainer.

Well well well, congrats armybuck! Your new YG Sub is a real beauty.

Nice to see a fellow Canadian getting a heavy hitter too!

would consider saving up and packaging the bluesy with some cash to get a gold watch of your choosing. You may regret selling the Pepsi and your chances of getting it back without paying a huge premium are slim
