    I take it that's a rhetorical question?!


    My dear Stitchy, how thoughtful of you. But I'm sorry to say I don't like it. At least, I don't love it. A friend of mine has just this watch, and frankly I think it looks effeminate on him. When I said I wanted a Rolex with a deep blue dial, I mean more like this:

    See, there's blue and there's blue. Like this. Which I suppose is aiming a bit high next to the Day-Date. But I even like this. Or, at the risk of losing and and all credibility, this.

    And if you're still reading, then I'm thinking an extravagant Gollum-version of you would be unable to resist this. So have it from me!

    I don't generally like pale blue dials, but I must say that (platinum? white gold?) Rolex definitely does it for me.

    One of my fave blue-dial watches of all time (and easily one of my best photos):

    Datejusts with Roman numerals look extremely crowded to me. Not a fan. Good trade Stitchy.

    That's more like it. I prefer the baton markers too, especially on this size. Yeah, OK then, I'll take this one. :)

    It's a custom, one-of-a-kind piece ordered by Psy. (http://www.ablogtowatch.com/franck-...uller-custom-oppa-gangnam-style-watch-for-psy)

    I don't fault FM for making a buck.... now, what kind of self-aggrandizing asshole would spend over $100k (assuming) on a bejeweled watch with their own likeness on it...
    Let me just say I wish I could afford the ChicagoRon custom series :foo:

    :deadhorse: this has been said too many times before :lol: i have a soft spot for the all gold daydates. i had one years ago briefly. If i were to buy one again, id choose a white enamel dial. but i still love almost all versions of the daydate as long as theres no diamonds.

    I did a search, but came up empty. Can anyone suggest reputable dealers in the US for used watches? More specifically, I will be in Los Angeles the end of May and would love to do some in person shopping if I can get some recommendations.
