Fun fact I learned today!
When you scratch/ding, and then polish, platinum, no metal is lost. The metal is just being displaced and replaced. Whereas with gold, you are losing a nominal amount of gold each time you polish it, to re-level the surface. Or so I was told by a very reliable source anyways.
What if this analysis was applicable to dieting, working out and fat loss? That no fat is ever lost, only displaced?
That would suck.post #34549 of 483128/13/14 at 3:25pmpost #34550 of 483128/13/14 at 5:42pmpost #34551 of 483128/13/14 at 6:16pmpost #34552 of 483128/13/14 at 10:56pmpost #34553 of 483128/14/14 at 12:42amQuote:Originally Posted by Dachshund
I have the Explorer II and I love it, although really only as a casual/weekend watch. I've worn it with a suit but it doesn't really go -it's a bit too chunky. It is a big watch, although not extreme. It's great for dress-down, has a real heft to it, and doesn't look like every other Rolex that everyone else in town has. That's what drew me to it. In fact, since I bought it two years ago I haven't seen a single other person wearing one. The GMT function is quite useful too if you travel, so it's also my go-to holiday watch.
I went with the black dial, but the white is nice too, and probably more legible. Black just appealed to me. I'll post you some wrist shots tomorrow.
A couple of wrist shots, as promised. Trying to demonstrate how it can also work with a French cuff, although it needs a more casual jacket.[IMG]post #34554 of 483128/14/14 at 1:16ampost #34555 of 483128/14/14 at 2:26amQuote:
Thanks for the shots. Looks like I'll stick with Pelagos or the Sub, the Explorer II seems a little too casual for me and I wouldn't mind a watch that is austere.post #34556 of 483128/14/14 at 3:35am
I'd note that the Pelagos, like the Explorer, is bigger than the Sub too. That makes it look more casual in my eyes.
Just a thought: how do you feel about the Explorer (1)? No diver-style bezel, but all the same distinctive Rolex style and versatility. Definitely suit-worthy, cheaper than the Sub too, and I think the current 39mm size is the perfect balance of modern, sporty and understated.post #34557 of 483128/14/14 at 5:21ampost #34558 of 483128/14/14 at 6:10ampost #34559 of 483128/14/14 at 6:16ampost #34560 of 483128/14/14 at 6:20amI was going to guess a vintage SL, but the leather and everything looks too new and you don't strike me as a vintage car guy. Then I was going to guess a new pimped out G Wagen, which seems to be more in line with what you drive, but I checked the pics online and thats not a G dashboard.
