Feck no. For my wife maybe!

Domed crystal on my GoDSSDzilla produces such interesting psychedelic images:

Like others have pitched in, Rolex just released the Black/Blue GMT (BLNR) last year so I'd assume it would be a few years before they brought a new one out.  I think the first gen GMTc was out for maybe 5 years and they can be had new for a discount now.

 

I love my BLNR to death and actually use the GMT function.  The 24hr hand is always on CST but the hour hand is easily changed when you switch time zones.  I am by no means a Frilly style jet setter but have used it enough that I love the simplicity of it.  A Sub 5513 may call my name one day but I am currently taking time to appreciate what I have now.

Well, here's something you don't see every day. Truly, as the auction listing says, a "Piece Unique".

What is everyone's opinion of the smooth dial DJII with blue dial and roman numerals? I'm a 22 year old tech business owner. I typically dress business casual. I want something that is an all around good watch. The sub might be too sporty but I fear that the DJII smooth bezel is too plain and ordinary. What are your opinions?

If it must be Rolex, what about the Explorer I?

DJ II (and DD II) look bloated and are less refined than their 36 mm predecessors. I don't find them plain/ordinary — quite the opposite, as I actually find them a bit loud and disproportionate. Not a fan of the polished centre links, either.

The simple and good Oyster Perpetual is a seriously underappreciated model, has a great all-brushed bracelet, and is possibly the most versatile in the lineup. I'd take one over a 41 mm Datejust without a moment's hesitation.

Yep. The OP, new SD and Explorer II are the only current Rolies that don't look "off" in some way.
