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
