@zippy - what a coincidence, I was just thinking about this watch this morning and thinking if I should try and source one! Great looking watch. Probably brings a tear to the eyes of the IWC purists (if there are any left..) Can you post some more pics of it when you get a chance?

@Betelgeuse - nice sticks!

Rugged straps, unlined, like these:

http://shop.wornandwound.com/collections/straps/products/model-2-horween-russet

Do they have a special name? Anyone know of a more economic alternative?

It's been August 4th for, like, a decade. Where is this Rolex launch?!

There is an event tonight in NYC. :satisfied: 

 

And yes, it IS a new DSSD of some form.

Do you think that most attending will know what it is, and if so, is it mostly because of that web coding blunder and the sleuthing from the TRF bunch? smile.gif

I'm not sure.  But it is already some form of movie tie-in with James Cameron's DeepSea Challenge documentary - so it's a bit "un-Rolex" of them to do.  What is this?  A "limited edition" DSSD?

 

We shall see.

Saw this seller on TZ awhile ago. Straps look amazing for the price. If you do try one PM me your thoughts.

Yep, definitely un-Rolex. Although I suppose this is a pretty significant event in the history of undersea exploration, so seems somewhat appropriate or forgiveable. I hadn't really been aware of this film, but because of the Rolex news I went and watched the trailer. Looks awesome. I will definitely see it soon.

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but I thought this was an already common practice.... called OHPF, right?

The offeror is the master of his offer. In other words, the offeror may specify in detail as to what behavior he requires from the offeree to accept his offer.

If the offeror states, I will sell x to you for $100, and the offeree accepts that offer, the deal has concluded. If the offeror states that the deal is revocable, or if he states that the acceptance must be received in writing, or that acceptance is contingent upon payment, ALL OF THESE are modifications to the basic principle. DG--no offense, but if you offer something to someone for $1,000, and that person accepts, the deal is complete. If someone comes in ten minutes later, and offers $1,200, you cannot backtrack. Offer + acceptance = complete. Money does not have to change hands.

Now, a minor exception. If the offeror owns a Paul Newman Daytona, and offers it for $500 (clearly unaware of the price), I give that person a pass. That person is ignorant of the value, and I really do not think it is overly fair to take advantage of that person.

Although I have to say, DG, I do respect your candor.

Basic contract law.. Newc & Stitchy got it.

They seem to call them "vintage", which is a term I find increasingly irritating, and not just in the realm of made-to-order ties...

 

Anyway, my only recent strap buying experience was with http://www.panatime.com  They were reasonably priced, quick to post internationally and overall pretty smooth.  They seem to have quite a few worn-look straps (under "vintage", once you've picked your size), from about $45-50 upwards.

 

If you want something a bit more special and personal (though not so economical, obviously), there's a guy called @DavidLane on this forum, who seems shy to promote himself without being an official "Affiliate".  But he seems like a nice guy, and I like the look of his product, so I'm happy to keep it in the family and give him a mention, even if he doesn't himself.

The Sea(Hawk)-Dweller is absolutely hilarious. I knew it reminded me of something...
