The resolution for that SD4000 with a SubC bezel: Rolex admits their mistake and will take back the shipment of SD4000s and replace the bezel inserts.

Huh...I guess the robot got confused.

So now there is a super-rare SD with SubC bezel?  Seems like it would be a hard sell in the future unless the serial numbers on the bad batch are known.  Otherwise....FAKE!

I wonder how many are out there? But you are right. With random serials, we will never know. Looks like people better send these things in or they are stuck with them forever.

I prefer the asymetric 'old' style.

I've seen instances where the "mistake" provenance has added value to an item.

So I am thinking of a beater watch that I can bang around.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Sinn 556A shown below:

I am not really looking for a poor man's Explorer 1 or Tudor Ranger.

I guess I want something that is the right size (it is 38.5mm) for me that will take a beating and look classic for pretty much ever.

For the price (~$1K), it just seems unbeatable.

Omega 3570.50 on anything other than SS

Speedy is too big for me. I want something in the 38mm size.

I would be ok with a new Explorer 1, but I want to keep the price down.

That one was recently reviewed on W&W: http://wornandwound.com/2014/08/20/sinn-556i-review/

I like the stick marker dial 556. Not crazy about the hands though.

But if you prefer numerals, how about a Hamilton Khaki Field 38mm auto?

I have one of those Hamilton Khaki Fields....only complaint now is a little bit of a cluttered dial but it takes a beating.

That was my thought.

Red Sub on a red/black RubberB:

Get out of here!
Damn, she is a beauty.
Too scared of fakes and frankens to even remotely consider looking for one from over here.
post #34950 of 48312
Yes she is. Unfortunately not mine - but a good friend's. I'm a fan of RubberB and how comfortable they are, but I understand why others prefer Rolex sports watches on their OEM bracelets. The juxtaposition of old (vintage 1680) and new (RubberB) on this pairing can also be jarring. I do quite like how the slim red on the rubber strap picks up the red letters though.
