    Looks great, RFX. Deets on the leather seats of the auto. :)

    ^ It really is. I actually think it's my favorite model of the current Rolex line up - great choice RFX45.

    One more pic (from the net), just because:

    I have never appreciated Richard Mille. I still do not understand its pricing. However, after I put this rose gold RM011 on my wrist I now understand why it is appealing to many.

    I believe this is already a discontinued model. I considered it a while back but it is very similar to Exp I so I passed. May still get it as a present to my father.

    It is beautiful. I had a hard time choosing between this and the (current model) Air King, because they're practically identical except for a couple little things. In the end, I went with the Air King, because the 36mm OP looked bigger than my 36mm Aqua Terra when I went to the AD to look and I already have a 36mm watch. The new 'over-sized' 34mm AK suited me best, I thought. I'll show it off here as soon as it arrives :)


    It's still on the Rolex website and still at the AD in Sydney, so I don't think it's been discontinued.

    Love the way the dial reflects the light. Thanks for sharing.

    Sorry for the noob question but whats the exact model?

    The current oyster perpetual lineup has some unfortunate dial choices I'm afraid.

    Here's a 3rd. I don't hate it, and might occasionally wear it, were it gifted to me with a no trade clause. But there are dozens upon dozens (probably hundreds) of pieces I'd buy before that one.

    They are not for everyone but they are more like Rolexes novelty watches but with that said, they look much nicer in person. Pics below aren't mine but you can see how misleading the stock pics are, they are metallic and the steel sunray dial in the middle is pretty nice. The white grape (on the left) can be apealling to those who may like gold? The change on the 3,6,9 to double batons isn't a bad touch either.

    For people looking for a fun fashion watch, they are actually not horrendous. Still would not kop. Maybe for a girl.

    Yeah it does seem made to attract women more than men but it's undertandable as everything at Basel was pretty much aimed for mens anyways.

    Speaking of new Rolexes, what do you guys think of the new Cellinins? Looking forward to checking them out in person. The Cellini time in Rose Gold and black dial (second from the left) looks pretty damn good.

    Actually all 3 in RGxBLK are nice.

    My brother. 34mm was as big as I wanted to go. It's such a great all-purpose watch.
