Let us know if you kop.
And then post pics of course.
He was 29. We (wife and I) started with 1 and 2, she had never seen them in full, I said 'let's stop here and pretend the others didn't happen', she insisted to persevere and peruse in full. We took a break afterwards, so A4 maybe tonight. If I can't stop it. I hate that genetic monster alien, ugh.
I prefer Prometheus over both, although wished the human conception part had been omitted and there had been another way to explain the exploration trip. I guess humanoids had to somehow feature in the/a film, so a pure space jockey v aliens film was off the table.
You got that right. The studio (20th, infamous for it) took it away from him, after a test screening 'failed', IIRC, and he wasn't allowed to re-cut it himself. So the much shorter TC (-30 mins!) wasn't his and the later "DC" neither. Comparing both, the TC wins, IMO, as the "DC" drags worse than haemorrhoids on steroids.
Thanks! Please see post #34178. She ends with 520 and comes in black, thankfully. Sings to me the most and if this persists, I can probably not hold her off for much longer. This, and there is a good opportunity coming up soon. More later.
Maybe that's a reason I like it; for a modern watch, especially an all-rounder with sporty heritage, 36mm is a modest size, and as lovely as the Air King is, going a little smaller just doesn't quite fit what I'm looking for. The slightly more bulbous case on the modern version is brilliantly proportioned with the bracelet IMHO, and I think really hits a sweet spot between subtle and understated for work, but enough presence to wear with a polo shirt at the weekend. Anyway, each to his own.
You're still a jerk, obviously! But seriously, I get you. When I saw it, I'd kind of forgotten that this new version has the double fat sticks, and they did stand out. But rather like the case, I think they add up to a fresher, more substantial look that I don't dislike. I think I'd like it just fine with the normal single sticks too though. More? I really don't know. I do know that the Arabic 3,6,9 on other versions and the Explorer takes it up one notch too far in busy/sporty for my personal preference. But these are very subjective things, and you could be right.
The old-timer is flawless indeed. Is it my imagination or are even the single sticks heavier on the new one? Either way, I think they both have their merits - different personalities, if you will.
And here's a really tough competitor: oyster bracelet, I like. Polished bezel, I like. Blue dial, I love and I rather wish the OP came with that option. And I don't hate the date either: despite my general objection to 3 o'clock dates on dressier watches, the sporty origins of the Oyster and the iconic "cyclops" make it better than most. What I dislike most about 3 o'clock dates, or any dates for that matter, is that they're often so apologetic: tiny, timid, unassuming excuses shoe-horned in to be unobtrusive, and all the more irritating for it. The Datejust date is a feature, and makes all the more sense for it. For all those reasons, if I were to have a DJ, I think it might be this one, as modeled by the fragrant and beautiful Mr Cleav.
Impossible decisions seem to be a feature of TWAT life. But I really do like that grey Oyster Perpetual. Hmm. Will review in a couple of months, if they don't fire me...
I have a new love for a new Rolex. It is everything I hoped it would be. Seen in the flesh for the first time today. Not mine of course, just more tyre-kicking, this time in Dubai Duty Free. But I'm seriously going to be dreaming of driving this one away.

Seriously, at under $5k for a Rolex brand new from the AD or whatever, this is really something. The classic 36mm size doesn't look at all small because the proportions of the bracelet are so right. The all-brushed surfaces bar the polished bezel, are perfection. I like stick markers anyway, pilots and certain Germans excepted, and the double markers on this balancing the crown logo make it look kind of sporty and fresh without undermining the classic style, IMHO. And of course, no date...
I haven't seen the other "grape" dial colours, only this one - which is the one I thought I'd like, and I do. It's very much grey rather than silver, but catches the light and changes colour according to its surroundings, making it a lot more interesting to look at than the website pics would indicate. At the same time, being close in tone to the case and bracelet, it's subtle and understated. So previous joking aside, this is one hell of a "one watch".
The Sea Dweller might have been the star of TWAT among the new Rolexes, and the Golden Pimpepsi the most eye-catching too. But in reality, this is the one I've really been waiting to see: the humble, entry-level Oyster with a new dial. Literally the cheapest, simplest, smallest man-size Rolex. I really, really like it.
This is VERY nice. I'll have to see if I can check one out in person. My only concern is whether there is sufficient contrast between dial and hands for me to be able to easily read the time without the aid of glasses.
