    Wow. Bookmarked that page, Newcomer.

    Awesome 5517 in the very first pic....several drool-worthy shots there.

    I put this on Friday morning and wore it all weekend...my "affordable" 7750:

    @ jkater1: I think B&M is probably underrated a bit, considering their history .... recently they have made some moves in what I would call the right direction. I find the new oversized Capeland Chronograph to be an attractive piece (in the white dial/blue hands configuration), though I'm unlikely to purchase one myself.

    Certainly their marketing is a bit more ....cohesive.... based on one of the recent issues of REVOLUTION that I had read (probably sometime last year).

    And I hope you enjoy wearing yours. Looks like a classy three-hander with a bit of visual interest due to the dial treatment.

    It's the perfect medium of tool watch and a dress watch. I've grown to not be concerned about scratches on the PCLs. The watch itself is pretty tough and has taken some day to day abuse with no issues. Love the GMT feature as well - I've traveled pretty regularly with it. My only problem now is that I'm looking into purchasing another watch now. If I have to get my GMT serviced I'd definitely need something else. I'm looking at a DJII with fluted bezel or going with the Breitling Transocean day-date.

    Beautiful watch, I am super jealous. The more I look at Rolex, the more I keep getting drawn in. I think the GMT is arguably one of the best modern Rolex's out there. Wear it in the best of health, and post some more pictures when you get the chance!

    Haha I am sure! I could see the DJ being a very comforting watch. I feel that it is never really out of place. It seems very versatile.

    it really is/was. i had the DJ right before they made the updates. the bracelet/clasp was on the the wimpy side compared to other watches in that price point, but it really was a super versatile and supremely confortable and sublime watch. i miss my baby. i fear i will never get her back.

    Thinking about a DJ 16200. Not a fan of the jubilee bracelet and the PCLs on the 116200.
    Either that, or an Explorer I.

    Just need a clean and simple steel sports watch for everyday wear.

    Unfortunate as well. I am not surprised though. TPP has become incredibly big, and I have noticed more and more frequently that it is a bit of a platform for advertisements and press releases.
