    Not a fan of that Patek. I much prefer the classically styled versions. It does look nice on your wrist, enjoy!

    Emy's watch is proof you can scratch the hell out of a Rolex if you beat on it. But my experience, much like Stitches's is that the brushed surfaces on my Rolex watches seemed to scratch a bit less easily, and when they did, they seemed to hide the scratches a bit better than some other brands. Not sure if its specific to the steel they use, or if its more the effect of the shape of their links and the brushing on the surface that provides the illusion of hiding scratches better than some flatter links on bracelets from other watches.

    Beautiful watch! The 5711 and 5712 are really the nicest of the Nautilus collection. Skip the chronograph verson...it just spoils the design and looks clumsy.

    Perhaps if someone ever posts it. There is the unwritten rule that you don't post watches you personally are not at least wearing.

    depechedior, Beauty! I'd love to see it in RG. Not sure if it's been released as yet. Much nicer than any Nautilus or Aquanaut. That's what I mean by classic case. Chronos are my fav complication. I miss my 5970WG, but I couldn't read the sub dials!

    That Nautilus is indeed a beautiful thing. I just dunno about wearing the equivalent a year's pay for a Wal-Mart greeter on my wrist...
