Although I think this is the best of the three, I have to say, this may be one of the ugliest Rolex's I have ever seen.
On the other hand, I think that Tudor hit it out of the park with this one:
320
I could do without the burgundy bezel, but I would like to see how it pans out before completely making my decision.
Time to get this thread back on track now that Basel has started!

This is a good one.

The new Rolex Sub no-date looks pretty awesome, too. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

i like the sky dweller, and that they decided to try some complications (2nd time zone and annual calendar)

The Sky-dweller, along with the Big Bang and anything from Invicta, might be useful as a litmus test for taste amongst WIS.

Chees wis, I get it. nod[1].gif

But taste is totally objective so if you like it, cool.
post #10977 of 48312

The only notable watches I've seen so far are submariner homages (blue yachtmaster, and two tudor divers are all nice) but that doesn't impress me all that much. Can we see something original?

 

Oh and the skydweller is oooglay.

 

still waiting to see if GO has anything other than the one sneak preview deck watch.

Agree


The Blue Dial Yachtmaster is nice, I like it more than the platinum dial.  They have offered this dial with the all gold and the steel and gold model.  To be honest I've always thought the Yachtmaster was something of an odd Sub variation. It roughly looks like a Sub, but its not as water resistant, and without the luminous dot on the bezel its not really useful as a diving watch (although I know must Sub owners don't use them for diving, I know I don't).  Personally, I've always prefered the Submariner to Yachtmaster.

The new Non-Date is a nice update of a classic.
