I understand that people get busy, but RFX45, you have made 4 unrelated posts since the teaser! Let's have it already!!!

Guys, thank you for the feedback. I am still leaning towards the Explorer 1. However, just saw this watch (mentioned a few pages back as an alternative to the watches on my list), and I like it - and it's just about the same price as the Exp 1.

What are your thoughts?

I'm also interested in the explorer 1 in 36mm but some sites / people have mentioned the movement is not reliable or very hardy. Is this true?

Ah, VC overseas 37mm, I would definitely go for that, if it's not too small.

I found the finishing on my Overseas Chronograph bracelet more smooth than AP RO, however, that is the new cross bracelet.

For an alternative along those lines, I rather like this one:

+1 Kaplan, I think it looks better and that one is probably less expensive than the VC to boot.



RFX: congrats! Nice pics.

Did you actually purchase a *quartz* Tank solo? devil.gif

Congratulations, RFX45!  Very nice pics of some great pick-ups!

I prefer the Rolex Explorer in 36mm. Far better watch than the newer 39mm version. If you don't want used, then the OP in 36mm is the best bet.

Surprised to hear so many doubting the Mark XV can be worn with a jacket. Granted I wouldn't wear it with a tux, but I've always thought it versatile enough to be a daily wearer in a jacket/trouser/tie optional office. I only voice my concern since it is likely to be my next watch (though God knows when I'll actually sack up and buy it).

@Kaplan, do you steer clear of wearing yours with a jacket?

The XV is very clean and understated. While not a pure dress watch, it certainly isn't going to lend a dischordant note with a dressier ensemble. IMO.
