 I have another friend who lives in Houston who gets his fill of watch talk from forums, and now iMessage groups that we share.  If you're ever in the NYC area ping me!  Totally regret not pinging you when I was in Houston and picked up a DBlue (for a friend, at the time), but I was literally there for the day and flew out that afternoon.  Fingers crossed! Adam's fantastic. Genuine enthusiast, encyclopedic knowledge, great writing style, incredibly down to earth dude....
Hahahah nice disclaimer there!Anish and crew consciously positioned their business in the intersection of "watches and luxury lifestyles." They've evolved over time, and there are certain brands they would rather not do business with. I appreciate some, but not all of the shots they post. But I'm also glad I get a chance to personally weigh in on some decisions they make, because their COO is a close friend.Likewise with Hodinkee - I've seen Ben Clymer take that site from...
 As a fan of watches (and particularly the SubC ND), superheroes, and coffee, I'm not sure how this pic can get better.
 So excellent.
 Relative to the US MSRP of USD7500, and grey market deals of anywhere from USD6000-USD7000, that ain't a bad price. Occasionally I will hear of rumors of a 114060 selling BNIB for under USD6000, but I'm not sure how true those are (unless we are talking about dealer prices, and not end user prices).
Looking good my man.I tend to go for lighter colored options for the summer, straps that can take a beating and that I can bring into the sand or water. To that end, it's usually a RubberB for the Rolex divers for me, though I have yet to switch stuff out.Went to Des Moines last week. My first time in Iowa. Wore this.
   Great shots @pmeis and @BostonHedonist - thanks for the share.
Wow! Wears even bigger compared to the DSSD???
Similarly, I had qualms about Rolex and negative perceptions associated with the brand long ago. Got over that with my Exp I and a vintage 1601, but for years held off on a Sub because oh I dunno they were "so common" etc etc.Of course I gave in eventually. Never looked back.
