    Definitely.

    You've got to have your stranded on an iceberg Rolex.

    Then there's also your wing-suit base jumping Rolex...

    your escaping from zombies Rolex (both urban and rural)...

    and don't forget your just in case I meet Kate Upton at a nightclub Rolex....

    the list is truly endless :)

    You are soooo right!

    There's your I was just part of a Brooklyn Decker & Kate Upton sandwich Rolex ...

    There's your the condom broke while you were part of the above-mentioned sandwich, and now you have 2 smokin hot baby mommas Rolex...

    There's your I'm entering a steel cage match against Stitchy and Mimo to see which of us here at SF gets the first Blue/Black GMT 2 Rolex...

    The list truly is endless!

    After some of those, there is the "you are so broke you can no longer afford a Rolex, Rolex."

    TWAT has been on fire today. Oh yeah, and in my most humble of opinions, those 'meteorite' and MOP Daytonas... muy terrible.

    I would MUCH rather have a "regular" Daytona. White face Daytona, please!

    Because I find the Daytona meteorite dial to be one-step removed from having a chunk of the titanic on my wrist!

    But really, just a bit too blingly for my taste.

    It is a bastardization (in my mind) of what Rolex was and should be. That is just me being silly though.

    I guess when I think of Rolex I think of the old school Subs, GMTs, Daytonas, Explorers, etc. I think they are the quintessential rugged sports watch company. And I guess when I purchase my first Rolex, I want it to be one that pays homage to the part of the company that I really do respect and admire, if that makes any sense.

    I had mine on the Di Modell Rallye for a while. I liked it a lot! I ended up going back to the bracelet eventually though.
