Speaking of the milgauss - does anyone own one, have some wrist pics? I've always liked the look but wonder if they're a bit 2004.

Nice. Thanks for the heads up!Spent the weekend in Santa Fe and was surprised to see a store with no lack of new stainless steel Rolex's. Right in the main town square there is a jewelry store called Diva's Diamond and jewels (lots of jewelry stores in this town, mainly selling Turquoise and native Indian jewelry.). Five SS Rolex's in the window display. Head on in and at least another dozen in the shop (also some PP, breitling, etc.)
Did not buy, did not get prices, did not see a SS Daytona. They have clear signs that they are not a Rolex Dealer.
It looks like they have a strong online presence.
I assume their prices are high but, this would be an opportunity to at least see and try on some of these models and assumably, if you pay their price, walk out with a SS model that day. (Having recently looked I could find no new SS models on display in Dallas, only some used.)
Assuming you could be in the area, probably worth calling first to check availability and prices.
Also, while there we stopped into Stephens, A consignment gallery. Higher end consignment furniture, etc. Spoke to Dominic, grandson of the owners who is their watch guy. He has maybe three or four dozen used watches including Rolex (no SS) a few PP, A few Omega, and a bunch of Hamilton and the like. Well worth stopping in if your in the area already.
Thanks!That watch is about as clean as it gets.
DJ is an amazing watch. Not that it matters, but the DJ sold at a retail premium compared to the Sub for a good portion if not majority of the model's history.Thanks!
It's funny that this watch really is the perfect fit for me, both physically and aesthetically, but was also one of the easiest watches to actually buy new (I think I waited longer for my Tudor than for the DJ).
I say funny only because the psychology of scarcity/hype really does seem to push people (myself included) away from more readily available models they might otherwise find desirable (at one point internet hype had me feeling a DJ would be settling for a "lesser" model even though I was strongly drawn to it).
Don't get me wrong, I love my Sub and I'll be thrilled to acquire a new GMT or Daytona (someday???), but I'll try to suspend the hype chatter enough to hold those watches in my mind as basically equal to my beloved DJ (price differences relative to complications not withstanding...).
Ok...now getting primed for some Speedy Tuesday...
It still does (36 DJ fluted on jubilee = 8.5k vs No-date Sub = 8.1k). That's kind of what I meant by the hype situation being sort of funny.DJ is an amazing watch. Not that it matters, but the DJ sold at a retail premium compared to the Sub for a good portion if not majority of the model's history.
Hmm, there must be a way to verify this. Hold on, I have this 10 pound book:
You like what you like, but eight black dial watches (including two similar Tudors and a couple of similar IWCs) seems like overkillNot the typical marketing copy:
Last month, we sent intrepid beginner Sarah Miller shopping for a Rolex. Today, she gets her hands on a legit collection – and she has some questions.www.hodinkee.com
“There’s something about the pointlessness of watch collecting that’s very soothing – that I really like,” I said.
Williams laughed. “So you must like life,” he said.
