Girard Perregaux's 1966 collection has had some near misses for me, but with the World Wide Time Control I think they nailed it.  Everything seems really well balanced and comes together nicely.  Not sure I'd get one, and I'm not sure what they do in the grey market, but it's looking like a really well positioned World timer.
 This was exactly my experience when the line first launched.  Couldn't believe the prices after seeing it in person.  Hand feel on a sweater for example was just awful.  The line has just looked worse and worse every year so far as I could tell as well.   That said I'm still of the opinion that RRL's value isn't great either.  Designs are nice, but when you look at a lot of the materials and factor in that it's made in China you see it's definitely well overpriced.  Still...
 Thanks for clarifying.  I thought I was losing my mind for a moment there.  
 I just said I assumed it was lume and therefore was acknowledging it wasn't lume.  Whatever it is, there is something "white" that fills in between the white gold of the numerals, yes?
 I was referring specifically to the white gold numerals without lume.  If they did a 114270 with those sorts of numerals in a 36mm case please point me in that direction.
 Well to each their own of course.  I mean I'd prefer a NOS 1016 courtesy of The Wraith for Christmas, but I'm not holding my breath.    I just like the white gold numerals.  I'd actually prefer it with a 36mm case and the white gold numerals, but as I understand it that was never done.  Either way you can't really go wrong with an Explorer I.  At the end of the day I think that if I go the Explorer route it'll instead be a Tudor Ranger 36 ala that fine Black Bay you...
 That too.
  Actually I prefer the previous iteration of that reference with the steel 3, 6 and 9 markers.  The shorter hands weren't preferable, but I think I'd could get past that pretty easily.  Either way I think the Explorer I is for me one of the best watches in the current Rolex lineup.  Anyway, congrats Partagas.  Enjoy!  No experience whatsoever.  They do seem to have the inventory and pricing to suggest they're "just another Jomashop" if you will.  A watch I was considering...
If someone grabbed that Tropics PO Coat that was a nice pickup at that price.
