Yes it is. But I assume you figured that out after he posted the video of it with the watch name in the title.

Neat watches.

Thanks! Sadly, no, at least none worth mentioning.

I do have a TX 800 series linear chronograph watch, which I really like because it's super light. But, nowadays I rarely ever wear it. The Ball holds up really well, so I wear it nearly every day and I have yet to see a new scratch or dent on it.

I am, however, looking for a nice, dressier watch though... there are two that I'm interested in, but neither show up online for sale as used.

Thanks.

You are not the only one. I don't like them one bit either.

I make an exception to the Deepsea though, cuz who doesn't like a really thick domed sapphire crystal?

i might be wrong but i would guess and say most people buy a rolie for the name. theres a lot of nicer watches out there for the price of a rolex that most people never heard of. On the other hand i know some people do like the looks of a rolex so it does come down to personal preference. I'm just never impressed when someone shows me their rolex.

Srsly? Here in Germany we buy a BMW to drive, not to show off a watch. Hard to believe this thread has been going for 7 years of dbaggery.

For all you watch collectors I found this site
Watchrecon.com
They also have an android app. Basically it takes the listings from all the major watch sites, ie WUS, Timezone, etc etc, and puts it all in one place.
Currently I have been wearing my Omega Seamaster as my daily but I also have a bunch of Lum-Tec's and a Rolex Datejust in my collection.

In case you didn't notice you are in the off topic section... you know where not everything revolves around BMW's.

You have a motorcycle in your avatar, should I make a post in the OT motorcycle thread about how it's dbaggery since I don't like bikes?

I mostly agree with you. The Submariner is a classic design, but everyone has one. I do like the Daytona with a white dial, but not enough to justify the price tag. And the gold/blue two-tone is cool, but I don't see myself wearing one personally.

If I ever own a Rolex, it will probably be a vintage DateJust. I do like the classic look with a little patina on the dial and hands.

Something like this...

Yeah I agree I am not a fan either. The deepsea is really a cool watch although way too thick for everyday.
