    Where would you guys suggest I start if I am looking for a very specific year vintage rolex (1980). Condition is not as important. Any good websites specializing in vintage rolex?

    47mm!

    But, it's for AHNOLD!

    Here's AH-NOLD doing a "modified Frills pose" (bawhawhawhaw) with a printed shirt that Keith T would surely appreciate. And a Rolex on his wrist. Boom!

    And that BELT BUCKLE - surely SF-approved!

    Timzone.com or rolexforums.com.

    If you do not want to deal with a forum, try hqmilton.com. Jacek knows his stuff.

    Beware that many vintage Rolex watches have been severely molested. They may come with parts that are not correct for the time period, some of which, like date dials, will be a dead give away to anybody who knows anything about Rolex.

    Finally, always buy a seller, not a watch.

    OMG that Governator pic is so full of win!

    In my mind he's wearing a pair of white leather tennis shoes underneath.

    Like some 90's-era Nike cross-trainers.



    Good advice from papa kot on the vintage Rolex sourcing....those sellers have good reps in the community, esp. Jacek.
    Happy hunting.

    To be honest, I actually don't know how to change of strap myself... :embar: so I haven't.

    Even though it is a dark brown, in normal light it does appear lighter, and contrasts well with the white stitchings.

    ^^ More simpler-is-better action from Rolex. This (with no date), no-date oyster, or the perfectly sized 39mm Explorer 1? And there's the Daytona of course. Has to be at least one of them, sooner or later...

    Thanks for the Piaget pic, Keith! I think I like the back better than the front, though. Not a lover of skeletons, really. Even cool platinum ones with awesome micro-rotor backside action.

    As for you and your nonsense, Frilly, imagine how many "special" Graham Chronofighters you could buy for that. ;)

    Really? For some reason or another, I really don't mind the Piaget branding on it. The fact that it is on the rotor makes it pretty unobtrusive to me. It is fairly large though!

    It definitely could have been done more discretely though...
