So I found a watch I love but found out it discontinued manufacturing in 2017. They have a newer version, but love it less. Is there a way to track down the older version through legitimate sites or stores?

I’d be comfortable buying that pre-owned, preferably from a pro seller but a private seller with some history would work too. I doubt anybody is really counterfeiting these and it would not be old enough to have developed issues. Gorgeous watch btw.

Update, just ordered one. Very excited to see it. It's been discontinued and Seiko just released a newer model. Of course I love the one that's not made anymore. But thanks to all of your help, I found a seller on chrono24, authorized dealer, selling it new/unworn. Haggled down a little and we are good to go.

Did you check Chrono24? I saw quite a few pre-owned available.

Crown and Caliber is another good source.

That’s the SARB017. You can get pre-owned ones easily. Check watchrecon and they’re moved pretty frequently.
Decent shape should run you $4-500.

Ok so I've researched more now because everyone said secondhand sellers and sites are ok. I found that it's selling for roughly 300 more than it did when it was still being made. Is this normal?

It happens with some of the very popular Seikos when they are discontinued. Same thing going on with the SKX007, you see it listed for silly prices now.

Did upping your anti depressants dosage make anyone else aggressive/angry? Maybe it’s more of a mood/irritability side effect, but after I upped my dosage everything just made me SO angry and I couldn’t control it.

Sort of a silly question, but I’m curious about team dinners. How often do they occur on a project with travel? Weekly? 2-3 per week?

Also, are they always at the highest end restaurants (especially in the big cities)? I had a friend tell me that the Partner on their case looks for “the most extravagant restaurant possible” for team dinners.

Incoming BA/A/AC and this was just an interesting question that popped into my head.

Hi fishes,

I just got an offer from Morgan Stanley. The offer is indeed handsome and provides other benefits as well. The problem is I just relocated to Pune for my wife's work, we have set up our house here and now if I accept offer I again have to relocate to Bangalore because they aren't offering WFH. What should I do? I know Morgan Stanley is a very reputed firm and might make an enormous impact in my technical growth, but is it worth taking the pain of relocation again?? I am confused.

Any Hamilton watch connoisseurs out there? Looking to buy a Khaki Field for the BF but can't decide between Amazon, an AD in NYC, or the Hamilton site. Going gray market would be $100+ cheaper than direct but their warranty is more suspect. Tourneau, an AD in NYC, has their own 3 year warranty on top of Hamilton's 2 years but have read horror stories about how they don't follow through. Any suggestions for a novice would be great (including recs for reputable ADs in NYC). Thanks!
