    ^ I usually prefer less busy watches, but I think that looks great - and I think the strap suits it.

    Finally, I can lay claim to being an owner of this after losing a previous bid on eBay.

    It's, as mentioned, the Schumacher "Legend" LE. Yes, I used it on both small- and big-holed racing straps and various "Bund" type straps. The bracelet is a 1171.

    No, technically not vintage but a LE from 2005ish.

    Basel is here and I know there are a lot of Rolex hate here but I was really hyped for the new Explorer I and my dream has come true, the new Explorer I now comes in a 39mm case but the draw back is they took the lume out of the 3-6-9 indexes. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] Still considering it in the future though. At least no polished center links.

    Well, to be fair, the 3-6-9 numerals on the current Explorer aren't luminescent, either--they're just painted white. That irked a lot of people because the other markers are luminescent. The new, non-painted numerals must be Rolex's "solution" to the problem. I don't like them. The watch was alright getting too flashy with the white gold surrounds and now there's even more bling.

    Overall, I think the current Explorer looks better. The new 39mm case comes with a thicker bezel, which makes the watch look a lot less elegant and a lot chunkier. Blegh.

    I guess I was just hoping they'd put a lume on the 3-6-9 like on the Air King.

    First time posting on this thread. Here's my daily beater that I've had for about 10 years. Originally came on a black leather strap that I replaced last year with an aftermarket Hadley Roma stainless steel bracelet: [​IMG]
