    I fear that we are about to see an avalanche of Spock watches. Which will be accelerated when I show off my newest acquisition.

    Just got her this morning. I was initially apprehensive about going with a 40mm watch, but the Sub-C definitely wears much larger and with my flat 7" wrist, it's quite literally a perfect fit. To be honest, I'm actually still getting used to the heft (mind you I've been watch-less for 2 or so years so...). Overall, the fit and finish is impeccable and personally speaking, I find the cerachrome bezel to be absolutely stunning in person. I think this watch is a great blend of fashion and function, and now that I own one I can understand why the Submariner is arguably one of the most iconic watches of all time. Hopefully I can add an LV in the next 6 months.

    Cheers!

    Excellent choice, Congrats.

    By the way, this is the LV version that I highly recommend.

    Not nearly the heft, but in my opinion the much better choice.

    Bored yet? Not me.

    Sorry for the facetious post. Long day spent with family. On topic, wearing 3970 today. Didn't get a decent wrist shot because I was too busy chasing after the kids, so a stock photo will have to do.

    Thank you! I love the 16610LV and when it comes time to buy Rolex #2, I'm sure I'll be spending a lonnnngggg time deciding between the LV and LVc.

    Here's another shot:

    Like most things, it depends.

    I went with white because I already have a few black-dialed Rolex, and because it's a bit more legible. I love the way it looks in the sun and by the sea, too.

    They're both good, though, and I don't think one choice is more correct or better than the other. As with every watch-decision matter, it's best try them both in person if you get the chance. I'm sure I would have been happy with either colour. Swapping dials isn't something I would do frequently on a chronograph due to how tightly the central seconds has to be fitted, but the option is there and it's not too difficult to source an alternate dial for a 116520 — so it's not like you're committed to the choice for life.

    No regrets on the white dial so far, however:

    bawlin - love that Sub C - it's a very strong contender for my next watch. I am also drawn to the green dial / green bezel version as I am craving some colour in the rotation, but I'm somewhat hesitant about my long term affection for something that bold. The GMT II C with the blue/black ceramic bezel is also on the radar, as is the blue dial DJII (still trying to comprehend all the hate for that line). Anyway, congrats and enjoy your new piece.

    I pretty much exclusively lurk in this thread, but to me, the discussions herein are fantastic, as are the pics posted.


    For diversity I'll post a pic of my single watch (atm). Warning though, I have neither a high caliber watch, nor high caliber photo taking skills.

    I've also never seen AE mentioned here...

    P.S I don't mind the Kate Upton pics either, not at all.
