My friend who owns that piece loves the thing. He's a watch broker on the side, is into the Sub for far less than retail and will flip it if/when it becomes tiring, but he still seems to love it as much as day one. In fact in the past year I've only ever seen the WG Sub and this on his wrist:
Which, of course, is another story altogether.
I'll stop posting pics of other peoples' watches now, as I'm sure it's getting tiring, and most of them belong to this same dude anyway.
The color in your photos of the WG Sub, look better than what I saw in person. That being said, I greatly prefer the old dark blue that was used on the pre-supercase YG Subs. If your friend is a broker and bought it cheap and will flip it anyway, not a big deal. I cautioned my friend about buying it retail and even with a discount as it was an all gold piece...he took a bath on that one. Great photo of that PP 5712/A ! I'd take one of those over a WG Sub in a heartbeat!post #30334 of 483123/25/14 at 2:16pmpost #30335 of 483123/25/14 at 2:22pm
I was about to say, arguably one of the best "first month posters" I have seen
Though to be honest, TWAT has a lot of great newbies come out of the woodworks. Even in the past month, the "new guard" all has great things to say and contribute.post #30336 of 483123/25/14 at 2:28pmQuote:Originally Posted by CMT1
Thanks guys. It's going to need a service soon so I am preparing myself to go without for a while.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It was my grail watch for a very long time. Sadly my new grails are so very far out of reach that I pretend that they do not exist.
I have to say, while I'm not normally a fan of yellow or rose gold...but that is stunning!post #30337 of 483123/25/14 at 2:56pmpost #30338 of 483123/25/14 at 2:58pmThanks Wraith! And thanks for the warm welcome, all. It's great to be so well received. I am really enjoying this forum and have learned a lot in the short time that I have been here.Quote:
Agreed! Rolex returned the original "starburst" blue to the 116613 (TT Sub):
(not my pic, but it's great to finally see that blue on a maxi case ceramic Sub)
However there is supposedly no plan to put the new non-pastel blue on the WG model. I haven't heard whether or not the YG version will see the deeper blue, but it should. IMHO the flat blue really only works on WG, and even then it's not for everybody.
I have loved the classic blue dial Sub since the 80s. I have an older M-serial 16613 and love it, but growing up in the 70s/80s left me with a greater tolerance than most for two-tone watches.
It presented itself at the right time, and was an amazing deal. I really couldn't help myself after lusting after that blue for so very long.
I hope you guys have a great night!post #30339 of 483123/25/14 at 3:00pmpost #30340 of 483123/25/14 at 3:05pmpost #30341 of 483123/25/14 at 3:31pmpost #30342 of 483123/25/14 at 3:43pmQuote:Originally Posted by A Guy from Shanghai
Purchased a present for my wife. It is a SS JLC reverso duetto.
@in stitches Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up buying from Govberg.
Love it - one of my favs.
Did Govberg give you a deal?post #30343 of 483123/25/14 at 4:37pm
Thanks Guys. My wife loves it. She tried both Duetto (approx. 33 mm x 20 mm) and Duetto classique (approx. 38mm x 23mm). She is quite petite with a small wrist...the classique actually didn't look too big on her wrist as we thought. Eventually she opted the smaller one.
Govberg guys are very nice. And yes, they gave us a deal (PM if you need more detailed info). And Govberg was recommended by Stitches!post #30344 of 483123/25/14 at 4:46pmpost #30345 of 483123/25/14 at 4:51pm
