Introducing my grail watch.

 

My apologise for the messy montage. The watch isn't at it's full glory yet as the stickers are still there. Damn, find it really hard to remove them.

Removing it means exposing the beautifully polished bezel to the elements. Sure wears better then my previous ROO sitting at 41mm as oppose to 42mm.

 


I opted to go for the leather strap. I hope the picture justify why I chose the leather. Anyway comes originally with the rubber strap and an additional alligator strap.

When I handle the strap, the first thing that struck me and my immediate response to the dealer, "WOW" why does the strap feels so different from the rubber on the ROO.

The softness of the rubber strap feels just like silicon unlike the rubber strap from the ROO which feels rugged and hard. This watch is just perfect for me in every sense.

even the smallest detail like when the fully close crown, the initials AP sits flush, not slanted. The leather really compliments the elegance of it's design.

 

@pmeis

 

I really love the titanium version of Pams, not too flashy and a very understated look. I love the sandwich dials of PAMS as well. The PAM 176 was a really reluctant sale but because it doesn't have papers, I feel its better that I let it go now and anybe find another with full box and papers in the preown market.

 

Speaking of 42mm Pams, how do u all feel about the 392?

While James Cameron's specially made Rolex is an even bigger, badder one; the Rolex Deep Sea Sea Dweller Challenge.

Still, the DSSD D-blue is an impressive piece of metal! Not easily pulled off in everyday life given it's size, I'm sure, but impressive nonetheless! 



Pictured here is the regular black dial 116660, not the D-blue dial one.

I think you are right, but for a normal consumer saying its the "james cameron" one usually means the deep sea deep blue tribute to james cameron. The actual one used i don't think is a production model and is for sale. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but i think this is the case

Correct - and it would be like strapping a tennis ball to your wrist.

I love watches. At the moment I have a SS Blancpain triple date moon phase, a Jaquet Droz grande seconds in rose gold, A SS Blancpain fifty fathoms and a rose gold IWC Portuguese perpetual calendar . I also had but sold a JLC reverse sun and moon and a Cartier tank Americaine. I really should have kept the JLC and regretted selling it. I would like next a Panerai GMT model 88 > will try to post some pics when I get chance.

You are correct. 

 

The name of the watch that actually made the dive is the Deepsea Challenge.

I love it! It does seem to be slimmer (as in less thick) than regular RO chronos or am I making this up? Anyway, congrats!

Yes, of course. Actually, I never knew the D-blue was a tribute to the James Cameron dive, so I always had the Deep Sea Challenge in head when talking about hte James Cameron watch! I guess we all learn something everyday!

I think you are thinking of the offshore models when thinking of the thick ones. The Royal Oak Chrono has the chrono built into the movement while the royal oak offshore while also a chronograph is actually a modular movement, JLC if I'm not mistaken with a chrono stacked on top of it. Actually one of the ways you can tell that an offshore is real is the pushers are on a different level than the adjustment crown as well as the date being "sunken" as this is part of the JLC movement which is under the chrono

Or you could make your way into the hospitality/VIP area of sporting events (auto, equine, yachting in particular) which have watch companies as a major sponsor.. There you will find swag bags ubiquitous. Personally, I'm weening myself off them. shog[1].gif
