I'll need a new band though, my wrist is too dang small.

It looks very nice. While not a watch I would have worn at 17, it's certainly not one I would mind wearing now. I'm sure you'll be quite happy with it. Don't let any potential haters get you down.

I like to refer to these as my Patek Divers.

Well, it's certainly not something I'll wear with my t shirt and jeans to classes sort of thing. But I'm finding more and more that I have occasions to be dressed up. That plus the fact that I'll soon be attending a college with a somewhat-formal-leaning business casual dress code and lots of suit & tie events (pre-law), I figure it'll be a good investment. So far, I'm in love.

I wish I had your taste at 17.

I really like this, how much would a similar watch cost?

Any vintage rolex watches you guys can recommend?

Beautiful watch.

(and yes, I believe it deserve to be shown again)

This place has pretty watches and could seemingly answer your questions. I like to look at the vintages there.
