    I would go for the 1675 or the 1680. Aesthetically though, I think I do prefer the pepsi 1675. Just such a damn good looking watch. I have really been craving one.

    The 1655 is also just super cool. One of my favorite references.

    I could, it's been pressure tested.


    However I don't intend too.

    Talking about Subs only, I don't think vintage is the way to go for a first-time Rolex buyer, which it sounds like Mimo might be?

    If you opt for the 16610, you can get a pretty much new watch (< 10 years) that also looks -- in my opinion -- quite a bit nicer than the current generation. D-Series forward is mid-2000s, no lug holes and RRR -- which just makes it slightly less likely you'll end up with a fake.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd dearly love a red Sub from my birth year (1969) myself, but the prices are ... unattractive.

    "End of Days" AP ROO! Boom!

    [​IMG]

    Ahnold looking SERIOUS in "End of Days"! Boom Boom!

    [​IMG]

    I am not a big fan of AP ROO but this piece in titanium somehow seems very attractive to me, as portrayed in this picture. Why is that?

    [​IMG]

    Boom! Boom! Boom!

    (I am not sure why I ended up liking and using the term "Boom!" recently)

    But seriously speaking, this is on offer right now for me. I am sorely tempted, but I am belatedly - after the splurge from November through March - exercising my willpower.

    Rolex Double Red Sea Dweller Mark IV ref 1665 baby! Ugh, so tempting.

    But how to resist THIS!

    As you said - GET BEHIND ME (and on topic)!

    In "End of Days" Gabriel Byrne was an investment banker who ended up being the Devil himself. Is that just cliche or what. I mean, I do know one or two decent investment bankers...

    Thanks for the advice. the condition or the 'accuracy' of the watch is less important to me than the year. I am trying to create a heirloom that my father would have bought for the occasion of my birth. Long story....

    I always preferred Al Pacino's power lawyer in Devil's Advocate.


    He's probably wearing that watch ...

    I loved Charlize Theron in Devil's Advocate. Then again, I love Charlize Theron. Period.

    "Iconic" pic of Charlize at a Lakers game wearing a DSSD:

    Lovely pic of Charlize getting all passionate about the game - while some guy with a PP Aquanaut sits beside her, most likely thinking horrible thoughts.
