    fwiw, a two-tone Rolex is a bit more flashy.

    But if you wear a stainless Rolex, 99% of the time nobody is going to notice or even look at your wrist (excluding watch AD and mall.) I think it is also safe to assume we all wear long sleeve shirts here. If you see somebody is looking at you. It is probably your shoes, or pocket square.

    Just for you stitches, because you asked. LOL

    A bit hard to capture it properly because the bracelet is on, but here you go.

    Thank you sir.

    I do spend more time looking at this back of this more than most.


    It does look much better in person when running.

    I've owned several Rolex watches over the years... Subs, GMT, Explorers 1& 2 and Daytonas....all steel, two tone, and all gold (one WG, one YG). Of the models and metals I've owned the only ones that ever attracted any attention/comments were all steel Daytonas and a yellow gold Daytona that belonged to my Father. I never had any comments with a steel Sub, Explorer 1, 2, SS GMT, or the two tone Sub or two tone Daytona, unless I was in a watch shop.

    People tend to over think the entire idea that a Rolex will attract a lot of attention. In all gold sure it will... but in most other metals the average person isn't going to notice or care.

    I agree, the only exceptions have been one person recognizing my Pepsi.



    Oh wait, jewlers when I am either buying another or just there to browse.

    Most people have no idea, or simply don't care.

    one of the reason i enjoy my reverso so much, is that i can flip it and gaze at the movement with ease and at will. :)

    Yep, I do this with my other watches that have exhibition case backs as well. It's just a bit easier with a manual wind however.

    Very nice, I never put a Squadra on before. That's the one with the JLC logo on the rotor correct? If so you should reverse it and share the pic, it's only fair.
