Ap 26470st

Hey all,

Looking to trade my 116500 for a 26470ST (even trade). I hardly wear the Daytona and think it may be a little small for me.

I usually wear a 51mm garmin (95% of the time) and also have an SD43.

Iíve been wanting to get into AP for a while and love the Elephant.

Could those with a trained AP eye take a look and see if the bezel and chamfers look good and not over polished and advise any pros / cons I may not be aware of

Thank you!

I think the bezel looks good, but the trade doesn't seem fair. I understand the dealer needs to make a living, but there should be cash coming back your way.

The elephant is a great piece. I absolutely love mine. This one in the pictures looks to be in great shape, including the strap.
As far as itís worth compared to Daytona, I canít say for sure since others saying you should have money coming your way in the tradeÖI wasnít aware the Daytona value continues to rise.

Seriously!
How on earth can anyone think a mass produced Omega direct rival think itís better than a hand finished haute horology piece from a holy trinity maker.
I do the trade in a heartbeat, in fact just traded up from a Sky Dweller to ROO myself

I wouldn't hesitate to do so. AP details are more fascinating

Bad trade from a money perspective. You are getting ripped off.

Sell the Daytona and get the elephant from someone else. You will have some $$ back in your pocket.
