    Surely of sufficient concern in itself?

    [​IMG] the best laugh I've had all week!
    Overall, I really like its appearance a lot, although I wonder if the contrast of the blue 24 hour hand is enough against the black dial. Definitely something I look forward to seeing in person.
    The new Daytona is kind of a waste...with the right dial, bezel, and in a more affordable case metal it could have been a cool watch. I like Platinum, but this looks like its geared more for the likes of Paris Hilton than Hurley Haywood.

    As for the YM2, its one of the ugliest and least useful watches Rolex has ever released. I even find the Yachtmaster name pretentious....the only thing that would have been worse is if they had named it the OperaMaster.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    I agree 100000%. although the classic YM and the new blue dialed YM is damn pretty.

    I completely agree with the pretentious name of the Yachtmaster. Could you imagine explaining your watch to someone?

    Guy: Oh wow, I like your watch, what is it?

    Owner: It is a Rolex.

    Guy: Oh what model? Is it real?

    Owner: Yes, it is a Yachtmaster II.

    Guy: Oh... OK. And what are all those numbers for?

    Owner: Well, it is to time a yacht race.

    Guy: ... Do you own a yacht?

    At least the other version of the yachtmaster has no real "yachty" purpose.
