I dont have either one of these but they are not the same. Besides the bracelet, you are looking at 2 different factories so each one is bound to have their own pros and cons. The movements are the same and look like they are decorated the same but the lume seems different and the case backs are definitely not the same. Just what I saw from a quick glace at the pics.

Ok, thanks for info. Just wondering if it is worth 130 dollars extra for steel bracelet. Or is it also depending on it being GF factory made?

It depends from the GF factory maker. Each factory price their parts based on what they think is sensible price.

130$ difference for the bracelet? I Can't answer for you, but consider that it's easy to replace a bracelet with a strap (and also to find the correct deployant on DHGate or AliExpress), but the opposite is very very difficult.

You may want to e-mail trusty to confirm availability before trying to make a decision.  It is possible that one or even both may no longer be in production.

Emailing Trusty for availability is a waste of time.  He will likely tell you yes, because it's on his site.  However after you've paid and he goes to the market to retrieve it,  they may not have it after all and you will have to pick a different watch. 

 

I did this several months  ago and went through 4 or 5 different watches, all out of stock. It happens.  You pays your money and you takes your chances in this hobby. It's part of the game.

Or you could use a pro-active TD who checks first before parting with your money. I do.
