new models

and more interesting thing to note - Rolex got rid of many of the pastel color dials in the OP lineup
anyone with a 41mm "Tiffany" blue OP is loving it as it is no longer available

I like the size, but I'm 6'1 so it fits me. I also have a GMT and Sub that are 40mm, yes, they wear better. The SD43 is tall vs the others, no so much the width that you notice.
Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It lives. Don't worry. That being said, How long have you been waiting for that?!

I got my Rootbeer within a few months.

Dammit! I was on the hunt for the coral red 41 OP.

On the plus side, the Air-King is updated. Crown guards, new movement (may or may not share with the Milgauss), "05" replaces the "5", and the 3, 6 and 9 are now chroma light for better visibility.

I'm not impressed with those novelties at all . Why extension clasp of the Sea Dweller's gone is beyond my approach ? I won't like when I used to have a Sea Dweller I had to remove the extension clasp as well . Because the watch was nto right and somewhat uncomfortable to wear .
However, extension clasp is one of the most prominent features of a hard core dive watch
GMT Master II with left hand crown is unorthodox approach too . I find it cool but it should have been a Black / Red not green / black

Well, I forgot to add a few words on the Air King .Finally, it received an asset called crown guards which is good but it still lacks an important piece to me : A Proper cerachrome GMT bezel .It still looks uncooked to me with a flat bezel given its sport characteristics

Not too long, 4 months maybe? I had not been looking much then for some reason started looking again.

Here is a pic of the exhibition DS and my Sub. Looks rough in this pic. Smudge on the crystal and some scratches on the bracelet.

To me the SD43 is a right sized diver, the sub is a small watch as modern divers go they look much bigger on photos than they are in real life, the SD43 has the size you'd expect from a diver sports watch without being over sized.

Not discontinued either and probably the best value Rolex sports watch at the moment.

I would have been more excited to hear Rolex would be upping production on their most popular S.S. sport watches, like the Daytona.

I just spent my "Rolex Daytona" money on paying off my current car loan. After two years of waiting to get a Daytona at MSRP, I gave up....

Got a text from the AD on Sat (at closing) that the SD 43 came in. So I'm hoping to take a ride and grab it tomorrow.

So about 4 Months wait. Not happy the price went up from when I got on the list...

When you get it, can you confirm if the clasp has changed? I heard the dive extension is no longer on the bracelet.

I got it Tuesday.

Yes, it did come with the dive extension, but I had them remove it when they fit me. Never used the one on my Sub. So prob not going to use this one.

Seriously considering this over waiting for a Daytona or Batman. Thoughts?

Can't go wrong with JLC. Look at the master control chrono as a Daytona comparable.

It's a bit too big for me. I tried it on a while back and it was a bit too thick and big. They do have a different variant that is 40mm.

JLC makes fantastic watches. I prefer the sportier dress watches they make vs the really dressy ones. We'll see how it goes with the Daytona, but that is the backup option.

Thanks. I called a local boutique today and learned that the watch isnít out yet. I can, however, put $1K down and order the watch. If I decide not to buy it, I can use it as store credit. Seems weird since all deposits are refundable in California. Told them I will wait to see it in person first, try it on, and then decide. So my Rolex AD has a few months to get me that Daytona. Otherwise, Iím gonna say fck it and go JLC. Getting tired of the Rolex/AD game.

Store credit? That's sounds like an outright scam.
