It is but the green markers doesn't quite work for me. I'm curious how noticeable it is in person. Also come sin re grape dial.

I love it as well! Perfection.

Looks like a Sea Hawks branded version.

I guess I should thank Rolex for putting those accent colours on the dial, otherwise they would have been hard to resist - perfectly balanced dials, great size, brushed bracelet and so on...

Sometimes I think Kaplan and I share a watch brain. The accents kind of ruin it, at least in the photos. Definitely need to check them out in person. Aside from that they are the best new release. The Tudor Smurf is a close second. The rest are not to my taste.

Those Rolex OPs don't get me excited though I do like the texture of the light blue dial on the DayDate.

post #42007 of 48312
I hadn't noticed the markers on the OP. I'll have to see it in person but I'm not feeling that part.
post #42008 of 48312
I'm more excited about the new Rolex movements (I guess as a response to Omega's recent advances, among others although I'm sure this has been in the works for a while) and the Tudor in-house than I am by anything cosmetic here. The north flag does nothing for me. I was considering going Tudor but now that they're moving away from ETA, really glad I didn't.

Wonder how long before these advances by Rolex move their way through the rest of the lineup. I doubt I'd upgrade my GMT but would certainly consider holding off on any future Rolex purchases until the advances proliferate. That said, the Daytona is the only Rolex I even remotely have in my sights and I'm not sure I'll ever go there.

Yeah, there's a special place in hell for whichever Rolex marketer looked at those beautiful dials and went: "Hey you know what would really make these pop, some daubs of neon spray paint!"

post #42010 of 48312

Aww shit.

post #42011 of 48312

Yeah those little markers look really bad, even worse on the Rolex site IMO. But I suppose they could look fine in person. None of their offerings change my Rolex to buy list (116600, 116520, 16710). The 3 day power reserve in the new movements is very nice though. It's nice having a watch that can go the weekend without needing to be worn/wound.

I am waiting for live pics to see how noticeable they are because I have a feeling they might be more subtle in real life.
post #42013 of 48312
Speaking of live pics, here's some of the YM and DD40 I found.






post #42014 of 48312

I really dislike that bezel on the YM, and I don't know how I feel about the raised numerals. Cool watch for Batman though.

post #42015 of 48312
Not a fan of either. The DD is the better of the two watches IMO.
