The second one I bought was found on the German eBay. It had a silver sunburst dial and silver bezel insert and had more of a Yacht Master look to it. The clean look was very easy to match with all types of clothing and different types of straps.
In late May 2010 my wife and I booked a spontaneous trip to Rhodes for the first week in June. I had no suitable vacation watch to bring and needed something fast. I started searching for a used Marcello C Tridente, the big brother to the Nettuno, but all I found was a blue dialed Nettuno which I settled for. It was also located in Germany and with some express delivery it made it up to Sweden just in time for our trip. I used the watch during the whole week and it worked well in all situations. Sold it soon after we came home. Its job was done and its employment was over.
Found another silver dialed version in the end of October the same year. It was priced so low I couldn’t keep my hands away. I bought it just because I had to but quickly flipped it away for the same price. I was done with Marcello C.
