I didnt even notice shoes in the pic.
AP love is always fine, but can we get back to submariner talk already?
great shoes, ddd.
Thank you gentleman.
My apologies to DerekS, in my rush to post pictures, I failed to notice your new watch.
Outstanding choice sir, Congrats!!!
Shit just got real!
well your 5711 was my first choice...but i just couldnt make the deal work for my liking. Which is just a fancy way of saying that i was too damn poor to afford it
seriously gorgeous watch...and with those navy EGs?! so full of win.
Thank you sir, and I think you made an excellent choice.
It looks like it was a win win for the both of us.
Thank you sir.
Thank you, it's my first vintage Rolex and I'm already looking for another. As collectable as it is, the creme dialed 16550 didn't speak to me, I didn't like the lack of contrast between the white gold markers and dial.
see your kidney, if its still worth anything.
sold em for Motley Crue tickets and a half a kit kat bar around 2004.
a good deal if i ever heard one!
I've never been a fan of the cream dial 16550, so I think you made a great choice. Apparently, many people didn't like the lack of contrast between white gold markers and the dial, so it changed on the next model. But its those quirky things that have made it collectible, even if its not your taste or mine. Congrats again on a great find!
I'm as much of an impulse buyer as anyone but this one is going to take a little time! Most likely toward the end of the year.
good luck man. Theyre great watches...this is my second. I had been tossing the idea around of a higher end watch than what i currently had....I really didnt anticipate leaving with it because i take FOREVER to decide on a purchase. I justified it because I had to get rid of my sports car when the baby came. A fella has to have his toys. No buyers remorse though...its really nearly impossible to go wrong with them. Cant wait to see it on your wrist!
Its kinda the end of the year already, no?
derk - Smart move using that money while the baby is still new. They tend to get more expensive as the years go by. Both the watches and the kids.
