    Out of the BL (NR) I got the call

    Thought I had about 12 months or so to go but after a random call to my local AD this morning (pestering call) they said that had one delivered yesterday, had two calls out but they haven't contacted them back. I told them I can be there in an hour and 2h's later this was on my wrist.

    I have only recently joined this forum (4 months-ish) and beforehand I never really fancied being a Rolex owner. After seeing all of the lovely pieces and reading all of the great posts, I have changed my perspective entirely.

    I have joined the club and am now asking myself why I waited so long. I wonder what I will buy next?

    Great little watch with a splash of colour, starting to see more and more coming through and if they make a blue/red or black/red it will truly calm it right down and give some amazing options for the GMT

    One of the best-looking sports Rollies, IMVHO. Congrats on the purchase.

    Great comments. There is obviously a lot of love for the BLNR.

    I've had mine on a NATO for the last year:



    Looking at the above photos, maybe it's time to stick it back on the bracelet.

    It's clear that being on this forum is not going to be good for my bank balance. That Hulk looks the part!

    Out of curiosity, does blnr stand for anything? I get that bl probably means blue but what about the nr?

    out of the 2 I prefer the hulk. Still have most stickers left on the BLNR,(taken off by AD but added to warranty card,) had it since Dec. 2016.

    Buy it, then if you find it's not for you you'd easily get your money back

    Buy it - you will love it, what's not to love.

    It is not marmite. Most people love it.

    If it was marmite it would be more 50/50 and more people saying they do not like it, but that just does not happen.

    I think the Marmite comment comes from the fact that that quite a few of us wanted to buy one, have either tried it on or even taken the plunge and then not bonded. Sometimes described as a little bit blingy.

    But hey, that's expensive watches for you.

    I think summed up nicely above.

    Hearing so much about how nice the BLNR was when I finally handled one in the flesh I was a little disappointed. My reference was purely some love and and some loath.

    Apologies OP for the hijack and I will keep ya posted.

    That's preference 'in a nutshell' - what one person loves, another doesn't. I am happy with that and long may it continue.
