Cool photo, funny slogan.  What would the Explorer 2's slogan be..."The Caveman's Watch?"  

 

DSSD is The Porn Star's Watch.

I love the look of the Milgauss GV apart from the shiny bracelet. I am tempted though to get one and switch to an orange rubber or green Nato strap.

+1 Milgauss fanboy here... I own the black-dial GV. Therefore I wish they'd discontinue the green bottle glass completely :)

 

I too could live without the brushed elements on the bracelet. Makes it more flashy than it should be... because otherwise it's quite s stealth-model, apart from ppl who actually know the Milgauss most others have no clue it's a Rolex. Which is a good thing in my book.

 

And yeah, it's heavy. For me on the edge of being unpractical. But then I love the refreshing look so much that it stays on the "keep" side. Permanently. So far. :D

FWIW, I think "heavy" is nice for a man's watch, especially on a bracelet.  Feels like quality. :)

I like my watches to have a certain weight to them, especially the sportier watches, but any watch needs to have a little heft to it at least. It's nice to feel it there, on the wrist. I like that feeling.

I know! Major dilemma for me. I have the new Black Bay on order with the blue dial but now feeling like I need this Milgauss...ugh

That Milgauss is funky cool.  I dig it.  A lot. And antimagtetic properties are arguably more valuable than extreme water resistance.  Not even pro divers descend to the spectacular depths at which these watches are rated.  But I've had a couple watches get magnetized over the years.  True, it's an easy fix.  But nice to not have to worry about it.

Blue GV is going for around 8k, it seems. Im still a ways off from being able to drop that kind of money on a watch. Even when I am, I wonder if I will like it enough to do so

 

I do agree the crown looks almost out of place on such a clean watch.

 

I think crowns in general interrupt the lines of cases. I would appreciate more efforts to integrate them flush into the case.

post #33645 of 48312
It seems like Rolex has been using design cues appropriated from the desires of watch bloggers and executing them in an ironic fashion. Making a Milgauss when it's no longer functionally necessary, the "mismatching" end links of the SD4000, or for that matter, the entire Tudor line. I guess you could say its like wearing a trench coat even when you're not actually in a trench.
