I wouldn't say anything is lacking. The sticks may be a little more refined than the numbers. But the Air-King has been my everyday watch for the past five years and I have zero complaints. I think the new OP is just as good - and I don't think that about many watches.

Gotcha. I personally think I like the Air King better.

On a side not, finally completed the "Trinity"!


Beautiful. All you need now is a Lange!

Nothing, really, but it is bigger and has more babble on the dial. I do like the Explorer-style dial layout on that Air King also, but think it looks better as white on black.

I like the new Steel Grey 116000 mimo posted, but find the case shape looks a bit bloated width-wise.

Not sold on the double-sticks myself, but it is indeed a very nice, modestly-sized Rolex.

Thank you, HRoi, Due to those ominous clouds, I headed in immediately afterwards.

I always love seeing that piece. I'm on something similar today as well.

Shut your evil face.

The Air-King is smaller (34mm). I'm not sure if that's what you meant.

Not sure, but I have an ND Sub and the Hulk is next on my list. May be overkill buying two Submariners in a row but I love mine so much and I've had my eyes on the Hulk for quite a while.

So to answer question - no idea but buy one so we can admire it!

I have no objections to having more than one Submariner or more than one SeaDweller.

And though I played around with RubberB straps for the summer, all the beasts are chained back on their original bracelets now - where many would say they rightfully belong. Just switched out yesterday.

The one day in weeks when it's breaking 90 degrees in NYC and I have to be in a suit. No DSSDs for me today. Went with the slightly less bulky/macho/badass overengineered alternative:

I am not seeing any drop off in badassery there, Batman. :satisfied:

Transcendent as always, frills.
post #34859 of 35983
Indeed. 2014 must be another outstanding year at Wayne Enterprises.

frilly never brings it weak.



Also.....LOL'd @ mimo. Watches sometimes inspire such strong sentiments, don't they? nest.gif

So if you'll please allow me to comment further, and perhaps re-phrase...I agree that particular lovely Rolex model is a very tempered, judicious size.

I do very much like the *nearly all-brushed look.

The dial choice is quite agreeable, and dare I say .... versatile.

Movement-wise, it would undoubtedly be a reliable companion for a lifetime, and the bracelet also would get my personal approval vs. the jubilee option. (Horses for courses).

But I'm just so darned used to seeing single sticks at 3, 6, and 9 that it might take some getting used to.

How's that?
post #34860 of 35983
Personally I find the double sticks a bit heavy too - over-power the crown a little bit. See for instance this old-timer which I think is nicely in balance. Just my viewpoint. If you love it, get it.
