Very nice moo, congrats and welcome to the Sub Gang!

Discovering stickers after wearing the watch after a few weeksand even moths always happens to me too. Check the clasp, there tends to be one or two hiding inside there too.

Grats again and that'll partner up well with your Speedy.

Congrats Moo. Nice Sub!

No fancy unboxing or crown, but made an impulse buy when bringing my wife's watch in for service. I've long loved this watch, even with the new blue version, this one still had me smitten.

Wonderful.  And I like this one more than the blue one - notwithstanding my general love for blue things: the "Internet Explorer" home logo on the new one is just too silly.  Best wishes to you and your "heimat"!

As I understand it, the irony of this is that Fleming only ever said a "Rolex", and never which one.  It was only Connery's movie Sub that set the precedent.  Fleming's might have been a plain old white-dialed Oyster for all we know - and a whole world of suit-suitable-or-not debates would have never been.

 

Of course, dressing up a Sub is preposterous.  Dressing up a pilot makes much more sense.  Probably.
