Work those guns, baby...

 

I'm sure you could work a pretty sweet discount on one by now.  I mean, theoretically.  Not that you're thinking of getting one.  Probably.

I must be in the minority that isn't overly impressed with the platona? The ice blue dial is amazing in person but that brown ceramic bezel doesn't quite work for me.

I'm pondering when Rolex will implement a black ceramic bezel on the SS Daytona though, it seems inevitable.




Welp, the weekend didn't go quite as planned...


...no Cartier yet but...


...still in their coffins!

I got the Explorer as a gift, so selling it is out of the question. But yeah, the Sub Date is probably a better Onewatch than the Explorer.

Thanks. I know people love the SD4000, but it's not really for me.

Nice pics. I think the Submariner still looks the best, but I'm worried it's redundant in light of my Explorer I.

I recently tried on the white-face Explorer II. I liked it, but I know if I get it I'll still want a Sub of some kind in the future.

You'd be surprised how different the Explorer I wears from the Sub especially a Date Sub.

Explorer is on a thinner and more sleek side, it could pass as a dress watch or at least tip-toe that border. Sub isn't as bulky or huge as the SDDS but it still has a presence and the solid links and broader lugs/shoulders really makes it bigger than it really is. Plus if you opt for a Sub Date then that as a big difference already versus the Explorers simple and clean dial.



And thanks all! I really feel the OP is a bit underrated, it looked small in comparison to the others but once I put them on for a while (wore it in the store for maybe 30 minutes while I chatted with everyone while looking at the mirrors every chance I got and it just worked for my tiny wrist, it just did.

Wow congrats!!! I'm seriously debating the Explorer 1 as my next (would compliment my SubC LV)

Let's not forget the Daytona!  Looks great RFX!

post #35487 of 48312
Oh yah, Daytona needs to explanation. lol8[1].gif
post #35488 of 48312

That's a really beautiful pair there, RFX, congratulations!  The white Daytona is definitely the prettiest for me - not that there's anything wrong with the black one, and that blue OP is just lovely: so versatile and understated, but as I commented on the new grey one a while back, it's got a certain presence about it with the bracelet.  Man, I want one badly...wrist pics in the mean time, please!
