That's my early winner from this years Basel as well. Might be my first Omega.

Had I not declared this year to be one of Temperance for me, it may well have become my first Omega too!

(Which doesn't prevent me from getting it on January 1, 2016... Still probably my first Omega!)

These guys are quickly turning into THE powerhouse for understated mechanical watches.

I'm really curious about the new "Oysterflex" bracelet. It's interesting to see Rolex embrace the rubber strap look officially. Guess they've really paid attention to the vulcanized rubber aftermarket bracelet fad.

 

Guess it's time to buy myself one!

I read that it is lined with titanium so probably more durable. I hope that straps can be bought separately at reasonable price, would be cool to switch up to rubber in the hot months.
I'm torn on the YM, I can't decide if I love it or hate it.

I know Rubber B talks about their straps as having "solid inserts" to enhance durability. I doubt they're titanium, but I also don't think it matters. I just ordered this one:

 

 

 

In my opinion, the new everose YM is GORGEOUS. I wouldn't buy it, personally. I'm just not a big enough Rolex fanboy (yet) to want a sports watch in a precious metal. Maybe later in life after I have a couple of gold or platinum dress watches in my watch box. However, if I were to meet someone wearing one, I'd probably be caught staring.

It'll be interesting to try that on. Never had an issue with my rubber strap not being sold enough but who knows, Rolex makes great bracelets.

Reasonable is relative for the most part but I'm going to go out on a limb and say the price won't strike most people as a great deal.

Since the introduction of the 116520 Daytona 15 years ago, Daytonas have had a power reserve of 72 hrs (66 if you leave the chronograph running).

Rubber B is very nice and I'm pretty sure though costly, will be half or even less of the price of a standalone oysterflex. Although I should say, I have the blue version of that strap and the stripe is a lot more subtle in real life.

I'm digging the YM too, but it needs to get in line behind the TT blue sub on my kop list.

Same as some of Seiko's chronographs and right about the Breitling B01 and less than some micros like FP Journe but yeah, should have noted non-chrono movements.
