sounds good to me. Normally I see them for around $250-300ish.

Thanks guys.  It's definitely an underappreciated watch, but its an interesting part of Rolex history.

They are looks like one of Genta's projects to me and I like it. But somehow Datejust much more often on my wrist.

Its definitely a product of the 70s with its integrated bracelet...something like the offspring of a RO, a VC 222 and Datejust.  I've always favored the sports models from Rolex, so the OQ is my only Datejust.  BTW, nice looking fabric on that suit.  My Explorer 2 gets the most wrist time.  It was a wedding gift from my wife, since she figured I could use a watch with a second timezone when we were traveling on our honeymoon.

Odd. Nor did I. Although that is a great size, I think I will keep my American MC smile.gif. But I am a sucker for applied numbers.

You may want to check out Laurent Ferrier.  Arguably the finest watch you can buy.  Look up and see.  If I had the cash, I'd go for it even over Dufour!  Met Mssr. Dufour at his little manufacture.  Wonderful man and amazingly beautiful finishes.  Sigh...

Beautiful watches.  However, with limited distribution and small production, if something happens to him and the company doesn't remain in business, parts could be very difficult to come by.  A friend's wife has an Eterna (Porsche Design owns them).  Although the brand is still in business, their distribution in the US has always been quite limited, which has resulted in her having difficulty getting parts for her 10 year old watch (damaged its bezel) .  Her watch wasn't that pricey so maybe not a big deal, but on a really pricey watch that would worry me.  Still stunning watches from Laurent Ferrier.
