    That bicolor GMT likely WILL be my first Rolex purchase. Not sure when, but I am fairly smitten. I wonder if it will be a good seller for Rolex though.

    And pricing? I would say $8,000 to $9,000. I can't see it being much more than the current iteration. Then again, I have been known to be wrong about many things.

    Yikes, let's not get carried away. A McMansion Dweller is still preferable to a Planet Condominium.

    strange, i dont hate the new daytona. I wouldnt buy it, but its pleasant to look at. Looks more like a jewelry fashion watch though...the standard daytonas are a bit more tool-like i guess. Will always be the best looking daytonas i think. the new ones theyre releasing with the ceramic/gold are nice but not my style...and the MSRP puts them in the same price range as MUCH nicer watches.

    the YM2 is fucking awful. cluttered, chunky, and tacky. :foo:

    Then again, my first foray into Rolex may look something more like this:

    Buying vintage kind of scares me though :embar:

    i think it could be that picture of the daytona that i really dont like, and it really is hard to judge off of these shopped conjured images not actual watch pics. irl it could be very nice, but i defo do not like that particular color combo on the daytona. would be cool to see in person.

    have you seen YM2 in person ans till have it? also, i dont always hate cluttered so that could be where we differ on that one.

    Hmmm, I guess it is not the info that scares me. It is the fact that the watches do not have the... amenities that the newer models have. Maybe it is silly, but I am used to the technology in newer watches, and I worry about the technology in the vintage variety. Those old GMTs are just stunning though.

    oh, that does not bother me. imo those vintage models are far nicer and better than many newer ones in some respects, even if the technology is behind, they make up for it more than enough in other respects.

    id go for that before the ceramic....no need to be worried about vintage rolexes...great workhorse movements. Theres a reason theyre still ticking ;)



    i have. I dont mind BUSY dials. but this YM2 is just cluttered and ugly. I think the coloring with the bright red and blue against the stark white dial makes it look really elementary/cheap. Maybe id feel different if it was a blak dial with silver/white.

    Surely of sufficient concern in itself?
