Would you trade 3940 for 5140 ?

Would you trade 3940 + 5k cash for a 5140 ? Both are in yellow gold Thanks for your inputs ...

I prefer the 3940. It has better dial symmetry. I also cannot get pass the smaller “5” and “27” numerals on the subdial at 6. Best Gatsby

I would not.

No way even without premium

I would trade the J for a R iteration which I find the most beautiful of the four metals, but in any case I would stick to 3940 the absolutely perfect daily wearer pc

No way! 😂

I understand your feeling well.

3940 is a good watch. But 5140 has another modern charm point ...  

Value, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder...

It's your watch, and your money so whatever makes you smile is the right thing for you to do

The 3940 will hold its value better than the 5140

but the 5140 is more legible. I sold my 5940 because it was not legible. I find perpetual calendars like the 5320 and 5159 more legible as one can see all the information at a glance.

The 3940 is

THE perpetual calendar , the 5140 is a gorgeous piece but just the one after it...

I actually prefer the 5140.

As I am not a big fan of the brownish indicator for day and night on the 3940. However the size of the 3940 is better IMO. Let us know what you go for. I am very very hesitant in getting a 5140 at the moment. Kev

I wouldn't...

the case size & proportion is just perfect IMHO.

No need. 3940 looks great on your wrist to my eye.

 By: vitalsigns : May 2nd, 2021-13:46
Unless you strongly feel the 3940 is too small, or there are condition differences between the two, I'd stick with what you have. That said, if I was choosing and had neither, I would get the 5140. Cheers, John

The very best.

No way

I’ve got a 5140 and I also totally recommend keeping the 3940 :)

 By: pfang56 : May 2nd, 2021-15:59
While I absolutely admire the 5140 the 3940 has the most classic proportions. If you can afford it, you can find a 5140 for a decent price these days. Good luck! Peter

Not a chance. It looks like the 3940 fits you perfectly. Really, 36mm is the size for your wrist.

 By: Galen : May 2nd, 2021-20:11
Don’t mess with perfection ( the complication and fit are perfect) C

I would not do the trade because ...

3940 is well balanced watch whereas the other one has a smaller 27. However if you like the bigger size, then go for it !

I passed on a new at the time 5140 so I could get .

A 3940R. I don’t regret it. The 5140 is a great watch, but I prefer the more spacious text. Follow your heart

You made the right choice imho

 By: Mike H : May 19th, 2021-19:04
The R iteration of 3940 is simply the nicest from all (I actually owned G R and P so I can judge). Big congrats to you 👍👏👏👏
