friend's white gold, blue dial and my stainless steel daytona

the full gold bracelet is significantly heavier than my stainless steel
oysterflex balances out the extra weight of the gold so it wears fine

if you want heavy, try on a platinum daydate or daytona
while i love the look of the platona, i wouldn't actually wear it due to the weight

Agreed, the Daytona is too small for me. 40mm is a fine size...but the Daytona wears smaller than 40. Chronographs need to be larger.

The SS with white dial just looks soooo good!! Called and spoke to the manager at my AD the other day. Just reiterated that I would very much like to have a Daytona on my wrist. Said likely not this year but they'll note it and see. ADs like to spread their inventory around to different customers but I am keeping the faith!!

I am a relative newbie to the world of Rolex. I love owning and wearing my Rolex watchs. Last week I purchased this Daytona Cosmograph with mother of pearl dial. I think it is very striking. The mop is now discontinued.

007 @ Rolex

Received this as an early birthday present and just finished putting it together (took a few hours over the last few days). I'm a Rolex, 007, cars, and LEGO fan so thought this was fitting.

The Watch:
The Submariner (no date) was first worn by Sean Connery in the movie Dr. No in 1962. Rolex remained the watch of choice for 007 until 1974 when it was replaced with a Hamilton Pulsar digital watch (played by Roger Moore), followed by Seiko quartz watches for the following 13 years. In 1987, Timothy Dalton as James Bond wore Tag Heuer for the first and only time. In 1989, he switched back to a Submariner with date. That was the last time 007 wore a Rolex. Since 1995, as Pierce Brosnan debuted as James Bond in GoldenEye, 007 has been wear different variants of Omega Seamaster, Planet Ocean, and Aqua Terra.

Even though the watch of choice for MI6's most well-known secret agent has changed over the last 60 years, Rolex has special meaning as it was 007's first ever watch on the silver screen. Even the author - Ian Fleming - himself wore a Rolex Explorer as he was writing the 007 novels.

The Car:
The Aston Martin DB5 made its debut in 1964 and was driven by Sean Connery as 007 in Goldfinger. Over the last six decades, James Bond has driven various AM cars and still does to this day. BMW made its first debut in 1995 when Pierce Brosnan played 007 in GoldenEye. In the latest installment "No Time To Die," and Daniel Craig's final appearance as James Bond, one of the cars he drives in the movie is the classic 1964 DB5 that first appeared in Goldfinger.

The Women:
Too many women to name and they were all beautiful. James Bond is a charmer and has had his way with the ladies. They never went wrong with any of the Bond girls.

The Drink: the Vesper martini - shaken, not stirred. Named after his one true love that tragically passed away (played by the lovely Eva Green in Casino Royale).

Here's to a happy Labor Day, great community, watches, cars, women, and the Bond and history between Rolex and 007. Cheers!

Tried on a rose gold yachtmaster on oyster flex
Exhibition model
Surprised at how much I liked it
But realistically speaking, there are so many other watches that I would want before this YM so it will likely never happen

Photo doesn't seem to be attaching
