I like everything about it except the 3 o'clock date, yes! That GMT chrono a couple of pages back is even better.
And that bad boy is not white gold or platinum either. It's acier - steel. Da 'Dink has much love for rare steel pieces but I have this irrational need for precious metal once the price goes north of, oh, $20K.
Funniest reply I've seen here in ages!
I don't find the spacer offensive in this piece as its not a huge spacer. I've seen worse ones when companies just increase the case size of a watch, but continue using the movement from a previous smaller model. If it was a significantly smaller movement with lots of dead space on the back with just a tiny porthole to view the movement, I would have issues with this piece.
As Frills pointed out, my issue is buying that watch in SS. At that kind of money I want it in a precious metal. However, as long as collectors say, they are rare because they only made X amount of these then it doesn't matter what they make it from, they will sell. About 20 something years ago, Lange made Lange 1s in stainless steel, it was their "Entry level" Lange one. They were made for a short time...so not many were made and today they sell at auction for several times more than a Lange 1 in gold or platinum. I'd rather "Save" myself some money and get one in gold or platinum.
Congrats! I am sure you will get many years of good use and enjoyment from your new Rolex. My oldest Rolex turns 20 this year and its still going strong!
