    This is a good one.

    The new Rolex Sub no-date looks pretty awesome, too. :slayer:

    The one watch everyone wishes was their hand-me-down.

    Not a fan of the Sky-Dweller but it's better than the rainbow Daytona :uhoh:

    The Sky-dweller, along with the Big Bang and anything from Invicta, might be useful as a litmus test for taste amongst WIS.

    I don't love or hate it. I'll leave it at that.

    The only notable watches I've seen so far are submariner homages (blue yachtmaster, and two tudor divers are all nice) but that doesn't impress me all that much. Can we see something original?

    Oh and the skydweller is oooglay.

    still waiting to see if GO has anything other than the one sneak preview deck watch.

    The Blue Dial Yachtmaster is nice, I like it more than the platinum dial. They have offered this dial with the all gold and the steel and gold model. To be honest I've always thought the Yachtmaster was something of an odd Sub variation. It roughly looks like a Sub, but its not as water resistant, and without the luminous dot on the bezel its not really useful as a diving watch (although I know must Sub owners don't use them for diving, I know I don't). Personally, I've always prefered the Submariner to Yachtmaster.


    The new Non-Date is a nice update of a classic.

    what did you think of the cellini princes they came out with a little while back? i thought they were quite pretty. i went to try one on, but it was way small for my wrist.
