This is my TT1931 Rouge. JC Randell has sadly retired now - I never managed to get another Reverso engraved for my wife, which will probably be one of my bigger horological regrets going forward.
Guys, Rolex OP with a dinner suit will do just fine IMO. Sure, it's not a big crown Submariner, but I think there's enough shared DNA there to pull it off. Then again, I'm the dude who wears this with a dinner suit, so... Mine's actually even more old school - manual wind, movement by FP I believe.

I could buy a better Lexus for less!
