    Closest I could think of off the top of my head, on the relative cheap, would be a Stowa Marine Original Roman.

    Would have thought a Stowa is a bit lowbrow for your refined taste in watches? [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, not a bad suggestion.

    Can't you just pick up a black bezel insert for the maxi dial LV?

    That's not a Maxi dial LV...that's a Ceramic Green Sub!!

    Thinking of modding my Steinhart Ocean Black DLC. I think id like to replace the Mercedes hands and replace them with different hands. Not sure which ones to go with just yet.

    *sigh*
    "Sell for $1295 plus shipping ($25 US Delivery or $40 International via Global Express). "
    Would being a certified chronometer make the timepiece that much more expensive?


    Doesn't getting a chronometer COSC certified/regulated cost ~$400 or so? If so, that number makes sense.

    absolute love that port. its just too big for my wrist.

    'I am not giving up on the DateJust/Explorer I yet- 36mm does feel small to me, but just like I thought some watches felt too big at first, I think I would get used to it. 36mm has been a standard size for decades. Finding used Rolex models locally is not hard, finding a simple SS DateJust from the 80s-90s is proving very tough, which is bizarre. Patience is a big part of this process.'

    you are right. put on my explorer 1 today for the first time in a while, in many ways it's the perfect watch.

    i think i would still like it but black dial and band is a bit much for me i would get a brown band with black dial to add some contrast
