You bastard!!! smile.gif Awesome man, congrats!

NoFrills inspired, but with a different twist.

 

Blue on Blue Combo.

 

 

Nautilus blue dial, with Edward Green Sandringham Midnight Navy Shell.

Another vote for the blue dial World Time, although if I were a player on that level, I'd probably go platinum 5130 with the circular/scissor-style hour hand.

And more congrats to Derek...looks like a nice pickup.

Call AP in NYC to verify.  I've seen them on bracelets.  So unless your Scuba is a specific model for which a bracelet does not fit, you should be able to get one.  Either way, great freakin watch.  Nice to see some AP Love here!

Thank you sir, and I think you made an excellent choice.

 

 

It looks like it was a win win for the both of us.

Thank you, it's my first vintage Rolex and I'm already looking for another. As collectable as it is, the creme dialed 16550 didn't speak to me, I didn't like the lack of contrast between the white gold markers and dial.
