Fair enough.  Cheers.

@cchen The up/down  will be more expensive, but a 36mm gold (rose, yellow or white) Lange 1815 small seconds, is easy to find for $12-13k.  The fashion is for larger watches (a similar 40mm version is more like $18-20k), so if you're more traditional in taste or have a smaller wrist, it could be a win.  It's a very beautiful thing in all its forms.

This cracked me up. There is a teaser on the front page of http://rolex.com announcing the unveiling of a something new on August 4.

Rolexforums drilled right through and figured out the surprise within a few pages of discussion:

Looks like a Deepsea ...

it does look like a water droplet I will say that....this definitely has me wondering what it could be..

for those of you understanding French, here's a (now) interesting article ... for the other there's Google translate.

http://www.bellesmontres.com/rolex/rolex-25-07-2014-1849033_882.php

Interesting part is this :

"... D'après nos informations, Rolex devrait sortir prochainement une Sea-Dweller Deepsea équipée d'un cadran bleu foncé et d'une lunette céramique bleu foncé en hommage à la plongée de James Cameron en 2012. ..."

In English :
According to our information, Rolex should launch soon a SD DS with dark blue dial and ceramic bezel insert, to honour James Cameron diving in 2012.

This. The Deepsea Challenge documentary hits theaters in 3D on August 8 so the timing makes sense. It might not even be a new DSSD, just a special feature on the project on Rolex's website.

And finally:

Try go on Rolex site, then click the right button of your mouse, then "view source" ...

Here's what you can read :

closed story ...

So. A dark blue dial Deepsea in commemoration of James Cameron, to be launched on August 4.

Should be interesting.

Random, but is anyone planning to pickup an Omega Lunar Dust when it comes out later this year?

I'm just now getting into this whole watch thing and I absolutely love it.
post #34147 of 48312

so.... I am getting the "itch" to add another vintage piece to my collection.... IWC 2403 circa 1971  It looks like there was one up on ebay a couple of months ago that when for ~$900 including shipping.  Has anyone seen another one for sale or perhaps have a dealer friend that might be able to track one down?  I know its nothing "special", but I am kind of drawn to the simplicity of it.... :)

Quite pricey for an Omega Speedmaster but it is top of the line.  Just don't get upset when Omega releases another similar one in a few months.

That is a nice looking watch.  Something very simple but quite the looker!  Good luck in your search.

I can't think of a better way for you to continue collecting "in pairs", Frills. One black DSSD and one blue.

Just sayin'.

Can't wait to see it!

i bet someone at rolex did/or will do, a nice facepalm, when they see that.

I'm very interested in the blue they've chosen. Rolex blue has always been a favorite of mine - I love the blue dial Yachtmaster, really dig the new blue Milguass, and while I did not care for the pastel/flat blue on the two tone 116613 Submariner that has since been changed back to the older "starburst" blue, I love the same color on the white gold 116619LB Sub.

I also cannot help but wonder if Rolex wasn't particularly concerned with word getting out in advance of the release. It looks like Belles Montres broke the story two days ago and the site source code all but confirms it ...knowing Rolex's usual stalwart clamp on new releases, this leak was either deliberate, simply not a concern or, like stitches said, a very uncharacteristic mistake.

I'm very interested to hear the retail as well, so I can have a nice laugh. biggrin.gif

^^^ I just hope it's not some WG or plat version that's ridiculously overpriced.
post #34155 of 48312
Groan. What they ought to do is release a replica of the actual Deepsea Challenge watch. Only Frills could actually pull off wearing it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
