    That is gorgeous - love the blue dial with the red sweep second hand. Cool story as well. Going to be a long few days for you waiting until you can take that one home.

    we cant sell it until 18 days from the purchase date anyways, plus we need to have it polished. you have at least 3 weeks to save up and get yourself a kick ass rolex!

    Firstly, Stitchy, where do you work?

    Secondly, beautiful blue dial watch with red texts, and always interesting to read the reasoning!

    Congrats, Stitchy! I totally get the blue dial thing, and I agree that the little red touches and the bezel make it sporty, while the size and classic design keep it subtle enough for any use. You really got a great deal there. Nice write up too; it all makes sense to me. :)

    I'm not a huge fan of Rolexes in general, but this is just beautiful.
