Even without little no-bezel ones and big bronze ones, there is a lot to think about already: my most recent bit of airport time wasting attempted to address the issue.

Exactly. I bought the Explorer about a month ago and told myself that the minute hand length was intentional! I'm actually not sure I would prefer the return to lumed numerals - I quite like the full rhodium numerals in the existing explorer. Mine also keeps phenomenal time so the new certification isn't a meaningful difference.

And they updated the Explorer I a bit, the other model I bought less than 2 years ago... Rolex why do you hate me??

Anyone know US retail on the new Daytona? And yes, Rolex hit a home-run with this.

Interesting to see that they reverted to the black subdials rings, which was the white dial color combination of the previous generation 16520.  I've always preferred the black subdial trim rings to the silver colored ones of the current white dial, so its nice to see a return to the white/black color scheme.

Maybe they'll put the new handset on during a full service?..... Yeah I know probably not...

Agree with you on the numerals for the Ex 1.

The 2016 Cosmograph Daytona is very much the same watch as the 2015 Daytona – this is Rolex, after all – though in addition to the black Cerachrom bezel, the white-dial version now features black rings instead of silver above the sub registers. The watch remains 40 mm and still we have the absolutely superb caliber 4130.
