5085/1A--your thoughts PLEASE!!! (need advise)

I have the opportunity to buy a NIB 5085/1A at a VERY good price. I know one should buy a watch because you like it and not on extraneousl factors. However, I won't want to invest in an "undesireable" or hard to re-sell Patek. I want a watch that has resale value if I decide to trade/res-sell down the line.
I didn't want a metal band (steel or gold) on a PP, but do like the face/movement in the 5085/1A. Does the fact that it has a metal band and or is stainless, make the watch relatively undesireable?

Please give me your thoughts on the 5085/1A overall. This is my first purchase, and I don't want to go wrong. While your at it, what about the World time in white gold?

If You Plan to Wear it Make Sure it Fits

I really like the 5085/1a but am unable get the tight inflexible bracelet to fit my small wrist.

As the only complicated Patek in SS it is surely a desirable watch.

The bracelet cannot be replaced with a leather strap so it is a take it or leave it affair.
