    Alfred, FNFZ4 on the forums is the best I know of. He discounts 25-30% off msrp and no tax delivered overnight. It's not grey either, my speedy was shipped overnight directly from an AD in South Carolina, new with a stamped card dated that day.

    I dont know, but I its not a big deal for me personally. They offer warranties on their own anyways I think.

    You don't get an omega warranty card, they are gray dealers. The price difference between getting the 4yr omega warranty through Alfred vs Joma and their in house warranty was $100. I'll take the non grey all day for $100

    And to be clear, if the deal was better, I'd have no hesitation to buy on Joma. They have a great track record.

    @steel28 - congrats, Bats! Terrific watch

    as for Grey market - personally if you do your research you can find AD's with near same pricing, and any minor cost is easily outweighed by peace of mind IMO. Not saying there aren't great grey markets out there with stamped cards and such..

    thank you for kind words Gents.

    So far I'm very impressed.

    It wears amazing, love the date complication and really missed it. The size is perfect and I missed a bit of heft vs my 116520. Little splash of color catches quiet a lot of attention and a bit distracting when driving (in a good way!).


    quick PSA: Rolex is extending its warranty period from 2 to 5 years for all watches sold after July,1 2015.

    All watches sold from July,1 2013 to June,30 2015 will get an extra one year warranty extension.


    this has been confirmed for Europe

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your BLNR, it looks great! [​IMG] Thank you for the information about Rolex extending their warranty period! Its nice to see them moving forward and offering a more substantial warranty. I look forward to hearing your ownership impressions of the BLNR once you've had a bit more time to get acquainted with it.

    Adding to the Stowa love-in. Stowa Marine Automatic. I ordered it on May 21st and it shipped on May 30th. I actually have to send it back to Stowa as the crown is unscrewing from the stem when I set the time in the forward direction. Stowa has offered to pay shipping both ways.

    I do!

    So many things to like about that one, especially the all-brushed look and the "slimmer lug" proportions.

    I believe it's a true 42mm as well.

    A lot of guys prefer the white/polar look... but for me, I prefer the matte black dial.

    Another good modern interpretation by Rolex, IMHO.

    I prefer the smaller Exp II. I'm not a big fan of any 6 digit reference Rolex.

    I really like it, particularly with a black dial. It was "In the running" when I was considering my last Rolex. It wears pretty reasonably for a 42mm watch. I went with the BLNR this time, but the a modern black dial ExII could be added someday. Yours looks great enjoy it! [​IMG]

    I really like the Exp II...so much so that I bought one last Nov. However it wore slightly too 'top-heavy' for my wrist & I traded it for a BLNR several weeks ago.

    If they ever come out w/ a 40mm ExpII w/ the orange hand I may have to purchase one.
