Speaking of daily wearer. After debating on the new Exp and Sub-C. I decide to go with the Sub, going pull the trigger in a few weeks. Just couldn't get that watch off my mind.


 I tried on the new Exp 2 in with a white dial and didn't care for it.  I'd still like to see it with a black dial, but the Sub-C is definitely on my short list of watches to add to my small collection.

I don't like the new Exp II. I have an 08 one and think it's perfect. I was a little disappointed to hear that Rolex gave in to the big watch fad.

I read on the website the history of why they chose the Rouge dial for this Reverso... pretty interesting.

the alarm function is such a cool feature, although i don't think you really use it in irl. we carry enough gadgets around, which fullfil this better. it's more, when people ask you, why there are two crowns...

Different strokes indeed. I've always liked leather straps. Am looking for one on my Sub 16610 (only because a 5513 looks better on a NATO strap)
