5711/1A FTW. Not much more to be said.

it is. but JUST out of reach at the moment. its torture seeing it! haha.
the rose gold is stunning in person. i tried one on at the AD here awhile back. it was on a brown gator strap...soooo pretty
i know they use 904L and most use 316L. but ive read so much about there being no real difference thats noticeable. 316 has less nickel and is a bit shinier...the biggest difference is NOT in hardness, but reactivity to acids. which you wont be coming in contact with. Its a bragging right. But the acid that would melt the 316 while the 904 is still standing wouldve eaten your arm off long before.
Ive had both steels....you cant tell a difference.
Emy's watch is proof you can scratch the hell out of a Rolex if you beat on it. But my experience, much like Stitches's is that the brushed surfaces on my Rolex watches seemed to scratch a bit less easily, and when they did, they seemed to hide the scratches a bit better than some other brands. Not sure if its specific to the steel they use, or if its more the effect of the shape of their links and the brushing on the surface that provides the illusion of hiding scratches better than some flatter links on bracelets from other watches.
Beautiful watch! The 5711 and 5712 are really the nicest of the Nautilus collection. Skip the chronograph verson...it just spoils the design and looks clumsy.
