    Decent deal at $375 but much more interesting if it gets down to $355

    I see it's down to the lowest price now. $363 shipped for a NIB Sumo is a nice deal in the US. They are generally in the $400 range with free shipping on Amazon.

    45mm case?! No thanks.

    And only 20mm lugs? Odd proportions.

    Some people adapt the 22mm bracelet to the Sumos.

    And why it's called the Sumo. Actually very comfortable watch. At one point years ago I had all three colors.

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    The watch isn't my type, but I can vouch for Massdrop. I got some music equipment stands from them a few months ago. Saved about $15 each less than the cheapest prices elsewhere. Not free exactly, but group purchase discount.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.
