I need your opinion!

I have this beauty (BB41) for about two years now. I still like it but it is not the perfect fitt; a little too much hight and the size is on the edge. I bought it used for a good price (2750€ with box &paper). Now my AD has a BB58 on leather for 3239€ - normal retail price for me. He only want to give my 1.750€ for my watch😡😤. I tried to sell it myself for a long time…nothing happened. Should I go for it or live with it?! It’s nearly the same freaking watch!:(

Is it worth the extra €1489 to you to have a watch that is closer to your ideal size?  If yes, grab it.  If no, pass.

·

If you can afford it and not worry about the money ,yes,but if it's a stretch,no ,I've sold items in the past and never really felt the upgrade worth it 

·

I would keep it. It looks fantastic!

You can try swapping out the bracelet for a strap or NATO. That may give it a whole new feel.

Thank you guys for the helpful comment!!! Great community! I know I would not enjoy the new BB58 with this bad deal and keep my money! I still love this watch, event though it’s not perfect.

I will try some strap:)

I’d say trade it in. You’ll take a hit, but it does help with the AD.  

If you can, get it on the bracelet.

I traded mine for an Oris, at least I got for 2200 for mine for the trade…never looked back but I am eyeing a BB58 either the bronze or the silver one

But the it’s the same quality watch as the BB58 but with different proportions. The hight bothers me but loosing that much money for the same (but smaller) piece would bother me more. Maybe in the future I‘ll get a better deal done.

Yeah I had the same issues with Bb heritage, but when I tried on the Bb58 it’s felt a totally different watch… but I get your hesitation, hence why I got a different watch

I know that for me, once I start thinking about getting rid of a watch it's gone (emotionally).  

I would keep looking for better deals, both selling your 41 and looking for a 58.  I feel like you could probably get closer than a 1500e delta, maybe with a used 58?

For me the 41 is too tall.

Donate it to charity and take the tax write off.  If you're not a scuba diver, get something that isn't a dive watch.

Took me a while to sell a longines in smaller size as well. Sometimes it just means u havent met the right buyer yet. Keep on trying to sell yourself though. I could have traded my longines to my desired seiko plus double the money more. When i sold the watch myself and got lucky w the seiko price, it was an equal trade. Be patient the bb58 price will always be there once u sell ur bb41 :)

3239-1750= 1489€.

Was it worth basically renting a watch for two years for that money or (744.50€ per year)? That’s what you have to weigh up?

Also I assume when you you bought the BB41 it was ‘perfect’ - it’s only when the BB58 came along, did you think it was not. Do you think there are any things about the BB58 that’ll make you feel the same when the next BBxx release drops? Just to avoid to taking the same ‘mis-steps’

Good Point! When I bought the BB41 I did it online and still was a newby to the watch collecting journey and it was lock down time. I would never buy a unseen watch again. I was or am lucky that it is an amazing watch for the money. Renting a watch?! people do that??? No, I am looking for a keeper:) My journey is more the task of finding the perfect fitting watch:) I get to thinking it’s a myth…but recently I tried a Grand Seiko which comes close but no easy link extensio:( I will take a good look at the new Ranger…will see if it’s works for me:)

Looks fine IMO 😊 you can always go for something completely different?
