Also, great DJ, I really like the black gator strap that you have on it!

Styles mentioned in this thread:
In my opinion, one of the most gorgeous watches I have ever seen. It would be a completely emotional purchase, but damn, that watch is just gorgeous.
I love the sight of the balance wheel sneaking out from the back.
I have been looking at other manufacturers for some time; AP has some classic pieces, and the 15202ST would really be a great companion piece to my PP 5711/1A. However, since I'm also a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the AP ROO T3 just really sings to me for a variety of reasons:
I mean, the case back is something of a robust variety that even a skeptic like mimo would appreciate. BOOM!
I am just kidding.
But I actually know a couple of people who own this piece, and they seem very happy with it. I don't know the gentleman below personally, but I believe he owns at least one AP ROO T3.
But, it's for AHNOLD!
Here's AH-NOLD doing a "modified Frills pose" (bawhawhawhaw) with a printed shirt that Keith T would surely appreciate. And a Rolex on his wrist. Boom!
And that BELT BUCKLE - surely SF-approved!
Where would you guys suggest I start if I am looking for a very specific year vintage rolex (1980). Condition is not as important. Any good websites specializing in vintage rolex?
Timzone.com or rolexforums.com.
If you do not want to deal with a forum, try hqmilton.com. Jacek knows his stuff.
Beware that many vintage Rolex watches have been severely molested. They may come with parts that are not correct for the time period, some of which, like date dials, will be a dead give away to anybody who knows anything about Rolex.
Finally, always buy a seller, not a watch.

In my mind he's wearing a pair of white leather tennis shoes underneath.
Like some 90's-era Nike cross-trainers.
Good advice from papa kot on the vintage Rolex sourcing....those sellers have good reps in the community, esp. Jacek.
