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

Not a fan of that Patek.  I much prefer the classically styled versions.  It does look nice on your wrist, enjoy!

As to scratching, i read that rolex uses a harder SS, and when i had my rolex i notice that although it did scratch, it did so less than my other waches.

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.

Perhaps if someone ever posts it. There is the unwritten rule that you don't post watches you personally are not at least wearing.
post #13271 of 33563

depechedior,  Beauty!  I'd love to see it in RG.  Not sure if it's been released as yet.  Much nicer than any Nautilus or Aquanaut.  That's what I mean by classic case.  Chronos are my fav complication.  I miss my 5970WG, but I couldn't read the sub dials!

post #13272 of 33563

That Nautilus is indeed a beautiful thing. I just dunno about wearing the equivalent a year's pay for a Wal-Mart greeter on my wrist...

post #13273 of 33563

That patek.... LOVE.
