It depends on the model and how bad I want it.

A man with one watch always knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure.

I just purchased an exhibition sub date at MSRP. It had all the stickers still on it and was perfect. The only thing that was not perfect was the outer box. A corner was a bit smashed but who cares. I'm wearing the watch, not the box.

Now that is not a watch Id take. One that was modified at AD workshop is not is not the same as a functioning one that has been on display.
