    I've always been a big fan of the white dial.

    One of the few Rolexes I like is the white faced Explorer II.

    At your house, when you're not there
    Just be careful not to scratch it on your girlfriend's nether-regions.

    White, distinct from other Rolex and no other white dial watch like it.

    I have this watch...in white. So maybe I am biased.

    I have the watch in BLK! I am biased. You dont seem to see to many. Mine goes great with jeans, suit, shorts or whatever.

    Black Face = Submariner
    White Face = Explorer

    It's a cool watch. But I would buy one used. They don't hold their value quite as well as Subs and there are some good deals out there from reputable used dealers like Paul Duggan.

    Be careful with the dust.



    +1 On Dust Caution.

    Man, I can't see a rolex without thinking about Manouche and that stupid dust.

    I wanted a black seadweller, but don't think I could ever get one now.

    Damnit Manouche.
