I'd be a lot more well-to-do if I stopped buying clothes.

 

I just can't get excited about Rolex watches. There's nothing wrong with them, but for any given Rolex, there's sure to be another watch for the same money which I greatly prefer.

 

Having said that, the current Explorer on bracelet did catch my eye recently - although the too-short hands are a problem.

 

And I would certainly consider a Cellini Dual-Time in white gold. Of course, that's a very un-Rolex-like watch, which is maybe why I like it.

or Cox you can get the explorer 114270 - slightly smaller, more classic, and it doesn't have the short hands drama.

Coxy is 'well to do'.

fxh is a 'ne'er-do-well'.

Cazzolino is 'persona non grata'.

You don't know where I've set foot or where I've shopped, so don't go there, mate.

Besides, there are plenty of people on here commenting about Oscar Hunt whose opinions I value and trust and aren't just one post wonders who come here to talk down one thing or another then disappear and never post again. How often have we seen that all over here on SF?

Sorry, but borne from experience, I've come to seriously distrust reviews from one post wonders. And if you don't like that, PoP, you know where you can go.

If my memory serves me correctly, based on some of Cox's posts and pictures when he first joined SF, I think that he may have gone through an expensive watch phase some years back but then mostly got it out of his system before then moving on to clothing and shoes!

High end watches=dangerous thing to get in your system. If I remember correctly, Cox once had a Voutilainen. He now rocks SeaGulls!!

 

As for Rolexes, the Submariner craze seems to be sweeping the globe. Thankfully, the size is wrong for me, and I really disliked the ceramic bezel (looks like plastic). Having said that, I know some members can carry the Submariner really well. I recently tried on the platinum President DayDate to get an idea as to the weight, and boy, that is one hell of a watch. Perhaps a good investment when platinum hits 50 year lows.

Crazy but expected.

 

They are pitching price a rung below the EG, Lobbs, Berlutis, Corthay. 

 

Really comfortable boots especially in the composite sole, but IMO ugly like sin.

Since LV fully bought them out, fairly steep price rises have been expected. A shame, but expected.

The RMW store below my office in the mall has a pair of black croc skin signatures on the front display as soon as you walk in - $4500 IIRC? Mind you they're probably not really for sale, as no-one in this town would really buy them. Unless of course they were a Japanese oil tycoon delegate on a town tour after a site visit at Ichthys.

So if I'm going to buy a pair of RMW before they zoom out of my price range what's the best option? Nungar?
