i do. its got bits of real panther in it.
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.
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.
^HA. that gave me a good chuckle.
i have a yacht.
^ baller! That's you on the right, correct?
a toy boat that floats in your bathtub isnt a yacht.
NUMA JEANNIN Men's Chrono
Late 1970's Chronograph, 17 Jewels, Caliber Valjoux 7733, 14k gold-plated case. In excellent condition and a rare find among swiss-made watches today. The watch has been completely serviced and overhauled.
New Patek models are out.
Also, the screen shot above is only for the men's models. There are a bunch of new women's models out too (variations of existing pieces, more or less).
Well the current msrp for the GMT is $8,450. Rolex WILL also have another price increase pretty soon. So If I have take a good guess.... $9,100+, maybe $500-800 for bi-color bezel.
The new stuff from Basel usually arrive in most AD around Aug-Sept.
I'm probably gonna trade my current GMT for the new one. The crazy thing, I was thinking long hard about the new YM (not the II), I really dig the new blue dial.
frills - which ones do you have your eye on?
noap! im in the middle.
To throw another gig on the YM2, the Racing Rules of Sailing calls for 5 minute sequences. Watches make bad timers too, I typically use an app on my phone as a start timer so I can see it without moving my arms. My favorite timer I've seen is this old Heuer hand cranker a friend owns. Not my picture but its the same piece.
