Saw this on IG. Might have opted for something like this over JLC if Rolex still made one so clean looking. I did want a leather strap, though.

In a similar spirit if still offered new a 1601 on a teal or London tan calf strap would be my casual wear of choice in neutral or new situations but the second hand exemplars are too messy by now to work. There was an inspired classicism to Rolex design that is somewhat missing except for the odd unobtainium references. Even the GMT explorer update for example (orange to red hand?) made it bigger, more obvious, less harmonious or maybe I'm just no longer "with it".

There are tasteful watches and others. Understated Patek is beautiful and elegant. An old Rolex diving watch is just perfect. Do you not actually look at the watches you buy? All the money in the world ffs
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make an American think.

Hello from the islands



Would take a photo of the Rolex boutique here with literally nothing in any display cases (including exhibition models), but we've all seen it before at this point. Guess I'll take a look at the Breitling, Chopard, Cartier, Bulgari, etc shops later.

First time posting in this thread because you all scare me… 2 watches ordered… couldn’t get away for the long weekend and had money burning a hole in my pocket I guess.

1. Blancpain Titanium Bathyscaphe on nato strap with sailcoth thrown in gratis

2. Pelagos blue diver - AD ordered both fxd and standard on the bracelet for me and I will choose when the they come in. I go back and forth but lean towards the standard.

Cooking a nice meal tonight for the family to assuage my guilt.

Both look to be great pieces. Post some photos when you receive them.

As to your guilt...

I love that watch.
Me too. If I were offered the choice of a 36mm Explorer or a Sub, it'd be a tough choice but I'd most likely go with the Explorer. What a great everyday sporty watch.

Even though I have a Sub Date I think I need one w/o Date to wear one of these suits. Recreation of Anthony Sinclair's suits for Sean Connery as Bond.

I'm partial to the glen plaid from Goldfinger. The cream linen from Diamonds Are Forever is smashing as well.
