Re: the Globemaster, while I too find that latest version distasteful, the standard steel version isn't so bad. It's not a watch I'd consider, but I think it's getting too hard a time here and were it to say "Rolex" on the dial it would be getting a pass like a few of them seem to get because they say exactly that on the dial.
The Globemaster, even the standard steel version is a dog! The combination of the chunky case, pie pan dial and narrow fluting of the bezel are a hideous combination. In addition, I can't see the Globemaster getting a pass by the "Regulars" on this thread, if it were sold by Rolex. From what I have seen, even the most ardent Rolex fans here dole out plenty of criticism of various current Rolex watches. Several of us didn't like the proportions of the 41mm Day-Date or Datejust. I find the DeepSea ridiculous in terms of size, top heavy, and IMHO its proportions make the bracelet seem too small for it. Other's here complain about the hand length of the current Explorer. However, IMHO, the worst looking watch they make is the Yachtmaster II. Its just goofy looking, and having it say Yachtmaster II on the bezel is just obnoxious. Now maybe on other forums people give some watches a pass, but most people here are very detail oriented and an ugly watch is an ugly watch regardless of maker. Cheers!
