3 thumbs up, as they say.
^ Yay Khakis! Yours looks bigger than my 38mm. I like your painted hands better, but I prefer the shape of sub-dial hands on mine. Very pleased with this purchase so far. Imo, these are the nicest Khaki chrono dials: flat dial with recessed sub-dials. Much nicer than the newer ones where the dial is sorta raised (stepped?) in the middle and glossy. To nitpick: lumed numerals would've been nice, as well as a screw-down crown. Still, a great value for a 7750 chrono...
Just to backtrack a bit re refinishing: general consensus is that watches shouldn't be refinished much, if at all, for resale value and natural patina/wear, etc (esp. sport watches). But I'm curious if much stainless steel has to me removed and is lost if it's only light refinishing, i.e. to remove superficial hairlines that can only be seen and not really felt.
Thanks for the thoughtful reply, Dino.Also, ceci n'est PAS UNE ROLEX: [[SPOILER]] And I believe it's been a while (NSFW): [[SPOILER]] ^ NOT FAKE!
@Dino944 : Do you think something like the Peter Roberts Grand Complication 5 will appreciate much?http://www.peterrobertswatches.com/
In short: must buy Rolex NAOW!
Ima have to read that.Here's another take on the subject: http://www.ablogtowatch.com/rolex-prices-past-60-years-revealing-analysis/
I'd like to get a previous gen 14060M Sub and Midnight Black Bay. I don't think of the BB as a Sub though, and I don't think getting either first would make me want the other one less...Def. no budget for both anytime soon. BB is much cheaper so can be had sooner, but logic would have me save up for the 14060M first since it's discontinued and the longer I wait, the harder it'll be to find one BNIB.
Weird how it looks huge in pics, whereas irl I can easily see 5mm of my wrist above and below the lugs.
