Thirty or so years ago, I was finally promoted from manager to vice-president. I felt that, in addition to desiring a tangible reminder of my hard-earned success, I wanted to put aside my plastic Timex and step up to a look more appropriate to the Board Room. I bought a Datejust. I love its understated elegance. Although I retired many years ago, I still wear it and love it. I think it looks very nice with black leather in my M3.

I am envious of the collections of Rolexs (Roleii??) here, but one must make some concessions when one hasn't received a paycheck in over a decade. And also loves Omegas. And also loves BMWs. And...

i was set on the deep sea and at the last minute got the seadweller instead because of size. the case just seems soo chunky and thick as well.

I have a DSSD and also a GMT-II. I like the thin profile of the GMT when wearing a dress shirt with coat, but on a polo shirt day or when rolling my sleeves, there's nothing like the impact that the DSSD has on your wrist.

That said, I'm also 6'3, 220, so I can pull it off.

I went through a phase of liking the bigger watches, but after seeing a few in person, I think 40mm-42mm is the perfect size for me.

My Sub had a tendency for the crown to dig into my wrist (I wear my watches kind of loose) so I'm pretty sure my next Rolex will be the Sea Dweller.

I'm searching for a new or new-ish M series Sea Dweller (last model made before discontinuing), the Deep Sea is a tad too large for me.

Nice. The closest I got to it when I was a junior in college was fashion magazines. Didn't even try one on until after I graduated.

I'm 5'11" 200lbs. I'm sure my wrist size can pull it off. My greater concern would be banging it everywhere. I do that enough with my Sub and SMT.

My former 2009 DSSD which I traded for a new ceramic Sub LN after a year. It might be the greatest sportswatch EVER, but it's just too big/heavy for my wrist. Predecessor Seadweller 4000 will do it for me at the moment.


The DSSD 's parabolic(?) shaped crystal(for handling greater pressures ) also gives the whole dial a blurry effect what I actually didn't like compared to the flat normal crystals of new Rolexes. Notwithstanding I'm a big fan of the early 1665 (Double Red and Greate White 16800 etc) plastic crystal SD's of the past. And I also love a good 233/270 Panerai. with the wobbly crystal.

TIP: When you get a chance buy the Rolex book Submariner Story by Mondani, Italy. It's awesome.

Cheers
Robin

Rolex ,

Here in the UK the prices are just going up and up and to be honest there is lots of Second hand dross about so much so i have purchased a couple from the US George AB from the Rolex forums being one guy I have bought from ,You are lucky as it seams you have more choice and better watches, for those of you who think I am talking rubbish I have been buying Rolex from 1993 and have had around 100 in and out and currently have around 20 exaggerating NO !

I sold around 25 watches between Oct 2012 till May 2013 , From my experience Breitlings however cheap you buy them when you sell them it wont have been cheap enough,I have been badly burnt same with Cartier ,I have found in the UK almost any Rolex Sport/Professional watch will return you the money you put in buy at a decent discount keep everything as it should be all tags, papers ,cards etc together

Servicing buyers choice but to be honest I think people who don't service them are just cutting corners .Do you think the tiny seals in the trip lock don't dry out and will stay water proof for 10-15 yrs , I was told 4-5 yrs and service mine at 6-7 yrs for peace of mind . I reduced my collection because I couldn't keep track of what I had and the servicing etc, As above I Sold heavily and put the money into some more expensive Rolex so now have four 18k pieces One GMT ceramic, One White Gold Sub, Two Daytonas one White One Rose.


I have had lots of people knock Rolex I used to be defensive but as my Wife said it is Jealousy and there you go ,I dont tend to let it bother me now ,Having owned Rolex from March 27 1993 and I still have that Sub date 16610 that just happens to be at Bexley Service Centre UK on its 3 rd service and a new Bracelet being fitted for its 20th Birthday .


ENJOY your watches wear them in good health knowing you can always sell them getting 90% off your money back .

Nice post. thanks for sharing your story! Any pics??

And I do agree about the value. Most watches drop right after you put it on your wrist.. Rolex is one of the only brands that I've found that truly holds its value, minus hand built watches and limited editions!

Tag was my first 'nice watch.' Moved to Rolex, and I still wear my Tag every now and then, but the quality difference is astounding imo.
