Did you see the new Sub Date and Explorer? I like the Sub, but the polished numerals on the Explorer bug the hell out of me. I'm hoping that on some off chance they change them before the final release.

I played around with both of them in a meeting with Rolex. Both are very nice (but one can of course have opinions on the green Sub...) and well-built. The Explorer looks good even with the polished numerals, what I would have wished for is larger hands.

The shorter minute hand on the new Explorer doesn't bother me as much. I like it, any word on how much it will retail in USD? I've read in UK it will be £3,580 including 17.5% VAT.

Expect a slight increase (10%).

I know zilch about watches. What does "re-dial" refer to? Meaning an alternate to the standard issue?

Re-dial means that the dial has been restored/repainted

Pics will come. I loved Linde Werdelin's watches, the new Swedish Halda watch, Breitling's new Superocean will be a success, PP 5170 was of course a killer, Corum had a few nice novelties, THC/ExpI/Submariner were of course cool, Longines had a number of truly affordable watches with a classy vintage look, Chopard's 150th anniversary line was mindblowing...

Lots of impressions.

I've seen pics of the PP 5170 among others posted on Timezone. It looks terrific. Looking forward to your pics.

The PP 5170 is a wonderful watch except for the curved writing, which unbalances the dial.

The meteorite’s unusual structure is the result its very high temperature when it enters the Earth’s atmosphere, followed by a period of cooling. The dial is a single piece cut from the meteorite; accordingly, because no two pieces of the meteorite are exactly alike, each watch in this limited edition is absolutely unique. The black color of the meteorite dial is the result of a surface oxidation process. The silvery seconds dial and chronograph counters appear in the meteorite’s natural color.
