Is this watch too casual to be worn with a suit? As a lawyer?


post #34189 of 48312
^ it's not a dress watch if that's what you mean so yes... and just not very cool either even for a very inexpensive watch.


Supreme TWAT Commander is pretty good! LOL lol8[1].gif

That's pretty casual. I would look elsewhere. Maybe something with stick markers instead of numerals.

Went perusing at lunch and tried on the Rolex GMT. For size it seems the best all around fit. I do not care for the polished center links but they said they could sub in a brushed version (true or BS?).

Anyway, still looking at that new white dial explorer as well. It might call to me if I don't find a 16570 in my neighbourhood.

Was it a Rolex AD?  I doubt they would sell it like that without you buying a brushed bracelet in addition to the watch then doing the swap.  Seems very un-Rolex like to allow that.

An AD said this?

Major personal preference here, but I like the GMT more than the Explorer.

There is no optional bracelet with brushed center links.  Not sure if they mean they can refinish them with a brushed finish, or if they have a used watch with a bracelet they would swap for you.  Things may be different where you are but in the US, Rolex is rather strict about selling spare parts like dials, bracelets, clasps etc.  They will only sell you the bracelet for the watch it is supposed to go on, and they require the old parts back in trade (I know in Europe they don't make people give them back the old parts).  

 

Also, in the US if you modify parts on Rolex watches, they get upset and can either refuse to service the watch or can tell you that you have to return the watch to its original condition if you want them to work on it. 

 

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Not to jump the gun, but I'm waiting for the next cornhole challenger, so I figured I'd ask. If you had the choice between the SD4000 and the Daytona (modern), which way would you lean? I still have to read the details of your response, but their is a strong urge to own two iconic Chronos.

And I wanted to add, while I don't share every aesthetic preference you do, the you and Belli share your opinions I take another very deep look at my perspective. The watch and design knowledge between the two of you is extremely humbling and helpful. Cheers to the both of you!

+1 thanks for taking the time with that reply Dino...very enlightening as others have said.

I knew there were lots of differences between those Daytona models, but haven't seen anybody break it down like that, along with personal insights.

Guys, question, saw a Speedmaster today circa 2000 ~ 2002 but to me it looked a lot smaller than 40mm looked like a 38~37 and doesn't have the legend "First watch worn in the moon" or that one, you know which one. Does Speedmaster's at that time were smaller? Starting bid is at $6,000 pesos around $458 usd.

Also saw a Patek Philipe Nautilus, don't know which one cause it had a lot of complications, starting bid at $150,000 pesos ($11,450 usd).

Ehhh,you won't believe it - just got contacted by the seller to tell me that the purchase is cancelled because he apparently already sold the watch an hour prior.

And this is after the watch was marked "on hold" all day with my initials on his website.

It all smells and I feel that I've been - we call it getting gazumped here in Australia - when a seller accepts your offer, but then down the track reneges when a higher offer comes in. Oh well.

Anyway, it was this watch:

It is probably an automatic Speedmaster. Not a "Professional".

apropos - what's the pickup?

I have come to expect nothing less than tremendous insight from that Dino guy.

Something new and something old, on my wrist today during lunch with friends:

With us, the head of private sales at Christie's and this old thing:
