I always wanted a Rolex, since they are obviously an icon and trailblazer in creating the kind of mechanical exemplar that I love, tool watches at the performance level of surgical gear or F1 machinery. But now they are popular with the wrong kind of people for the wrong reasons, and I cringe at the association (kind of like P-cars). I have to ask myself, would Steve McQueen or Paul Newman have used their contacts to get a Daytona today, or would they go with something as robust and underappreciated as the Daytona was in those days? Or am I just rationalizing my current love of Seiko?
There are plenty of undercover rolexes you can buy. Most people know gold datejusts and steel subs. No one would know what an exp I is or Milgauss for example. I have a polar explorer and no one has made mention of it or treated me in any unusual way when I'm wearing it. If you want a Daytona, go for it. It's just a regular chrono to most people.

And there's nothing wrong with seikos. I love my prospex SUN023.

The private market is full of the deep sea and the Cameron version, I expect they are harder to wear than an AP offshore.
yeah, it was 40mm.

I was able to procure a 1974 DRSD that is fully documented over the weekend from Germany, it'll arrive tomorrow.
The case looks unpolished, which is the exact way it's going to stay. The dial has a great yellow/pumpkin patina to the markers.
I can't wait!

If anyone is interested in a 1972 Rolex 1680 Red Sub or a 2011 Rolex Daytona White Dial SS Bezel that is BNIB, LMK.

I don't know why it was deleted. I didn't do it. Don't know what happened. Weird.

Daytona is $19,500 and Red Sub is $21,500.
PM if interested and I can send pics.

I've had my DJ for about a month now and I'm loving it each day I wear it!!

I was weary purchasing it since it was only a 36mm and was afraid it'd be on the smallish size but I'm fine with it!!

I have a 8 inch wrist, and my Oyster Perpetual Datejust looks good. Simple, elegant, and understated. I wear it more than my SS Submariner. I don’t go bigger than 40mm. Keep it simple.

Interesting i have under 7 and 40 - 42 is my sweet spot. I have a few that are 44-46 and feel thats when they look too large for me. Tried on datejust today with jubilee and oyster bracelet. Felt like the jubilee looked like a ladies watch. Oyster looked better.

I heard the Datejust 41mm didn’t sell well. Anything bigger than 40mm is not my cup of tea. Less is more in my book.
