Can someone with experience with ceramic-dialed Rolexes tell me if they are prone to scratching fairly easy or.. ? This will be my only watch so I plan on wearing it almost daily.

Thanks!

My experience with the GMTIIc is that the ceramic is very durable and scratch resistant.  I've worn mine every day for just under a year (and I haven't exactly babied it) and have gotten nary a scratch on the bezel.  The polished portions of the bracelet, on the other hand, I've managed to beat up pretty good.  Worked out well though - really just a more DIY way of getting those center links brushed rotflmao.gif

Thanks.

 

I'll throw in another shot next to my other two watches.  Lots of contrast here, I guess.  The one on the left is a Girard-Perregaux Sea-Hawk from the early 50's, the one on the right is a Casio F-91W, aka my gym watch/the cheapest decent digital chrono I could find on Amazon.

And, to further the GMTIIc love fest, a couple of (admittedly terrible cell phone quality) pictures from last weekend.  The lady friend and I enjoyed some excellent weather at the beach.

No problem!  I bought it in August at the DC Pen Show.  I don't think the dial is original (it may be retouched or even overhauled), but it certainly won my heart.  Under flash/high light you can see a lot of scratches in the plastic crystal, but as you'll see in some of the pictures these scratches are not visible in normal light and use.

Had it back for a couple months now. Showing a couple different views of the watch.. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)









looks lovely.

I was expecting a deeper blue and not this baby blue hue we're seeing above. Of course I will have to reserve judgement until I see it in person, but this is a little disheartening to say the least.

i absolutely love it. and i think that blue is perfect for the contrast to the black. that is my #1 desire watch right now.

pretty much this, its not quite invisible, but not nearly as obtrusive (though i actually like it). and as dino said, its on pretty much all the modern sport models now. i think it was conceived out of counterfeit battling more than name whorring.

Dagger 88: Yes, teenagers.

 

Mer6, Loving the GO and GP - thanks for the wonderful pics.

Lovely pics, chocsosa. I like the strap you've placed on it... just the right amount of gloss, if you know what I mean.



bernoulli: that's a nice vintage Omega as well. Looks like maybe a caliber 267? I like that dial layout with the sub seconds.

There's one for sale at Darlor right now that looks to be in good condition and quite reasonable....trying to resist.



I'm wearing this one today:





Maybe I will keep it on for tomorrow, and it can be my official Preakness timer. I figure the Monaco's good for more than just auto racing smile.gif

That is sweet, Stitchy.  What else you got on sale right now? :)
