Hey Dino! Of course I picked up the OP. I've been extolling its virtues ever since it came out, and having it on the wrist makes me like it even more. So yes, I've been on a bit of a spree lately due to the favourable currency situation here.
The basic Oyster offers a lot to appreciate and I recommend it highly to anyone who's considering the watch. And while the Deepsea isn't something I'd personally wear, it's a fun watch.
Hey, congrats my friend ! I guess until your more recent post it (or perhaps I missed a post), I didn't know that you bought the new Rolex Oyster. You definitely make a great case (no pun intended) for the basic Oyster. I wasn't initially sure about the dial from stock photos, but in you post its a really rich interesting color...and the new clasp is very cool ! Congrats again and wear it in good health my friend.
