    For me, the maxi-case Sub; bought one new, tried to convince myself , but every time I looked at it, I disliked it more. Too ‘blocky’, too square, too ugly. It’s taken Rolex ten years to wriggle out...

    A new Ed White every time; a genuinely special watch, not just another ‘limited edition.’ Interesting to see it’s used value in a few years.
    How many genuinely hand-built watches are cheaper? Very...

    A really outstanding contribution, and it’s always good to see quartz given a proper place in the watch world. I’d never be without one, or two....

    I’ve been coming to the feeling that some forum people have become a bit over-sensitive about their watches. They exist for us to wear and enjoy, over the years. Of course they will get signs of...

    Excellent. Look at how much broader the lugs of the SD43 are. It’s just a bigger, bulkier, thicker, watch. That’s not a criticism...I really like the SD43. But it’s a different animal.

    There might be exceptions; but (say) five years ago, you could
    get 20% off something like a DayDate. You had to know the dealer quite well. Then, about three years ago, it seemed to fall to 10%....

    I found it a struggle to get the watch at all; certainly no discount. Which contrasts with a few years ago when 10-15% was on offer. It’s just supply and demand.
    Right now, used prices seem...

    Here’s a photo of the thickness, which I have just taken. Sadly, I don’t have much to co pare it with, this is a 41mm CWC naval diver. Not that big. Incidentally, if you look at the SD43, note how...

    Rolex Yachtmaster 226659

    . The best illustration I can suggest of size is something like a broader Daytona. Same slim case and curves, just slightly wider. The depth (less than 12mm) is key, together with the cut-back...

    You paid several thousand pounds for the Oysterflex with clasp. The latest one with adjustments. In my opinion (and I’ve been using this model for six months) it will look better, and work better,...

    Believe me, it’s not just the clasp that gets marked (although it does). No point in worrying. A white gold watch requires a certain ‘relaxed’ attitude to scratches. Otherwise it won’t be enjoyable....

    Is this a joke? I rather suspect it is..... Apart from the aesthetics, a NATO would struggle with the weight of a solid gold watch. They are heavy . It would slide round the wrist.

    Rolex Yachtmaster 226659

    I have one, bought it six months ago from the local AD after quite a long wait. Wasn’t that easy to get at that tIme. I used to have an sd43, which is quite a lot chunkier. To me, this is the best...

    Strange isn’t it. The SD43 sells, used, for about £1000 above retail, thus offering many buyers a ‘free’ watch. And yet this is seen by some as not enough .
    Great watch by the way; one of the best...

    I’d guess most DayDate buyers are hardly spring chickens. The Roman numerals look good but they crowd the dial and have no lume. The ‘stick’ symbols are less cluttered and do have lume. I think it’s...

    I rather like them. Attractive , bright, colours. But will they age well or just seem temporary fashions?
    Hard to know at the moment. Worth a gamble.

    I’ve had one; be careful with this dial. The Roman figures clutter the dial and the green colour makes the time quite hard to read in poor lighting. If you are young, with good eyesight, fine, but...

    If only Rolex had stuck with this; it’s lovely. To my eyes, much better looking than the current model.
  22. Rolex Yacht-Master 40mm Oyster, 18 ct Everose gold M126655-001

    So, very precise. Ive never measured or checked mine but it seems fine. I agree that the shape of the case is elegant, curvy and quite slim. In fact, similar to a Daytona rather than the proper dive...

    Gold models have gone up, like most Rolex models. Crazy market. But it’s still an interesting comparison. We could pay £22000 for a ceramic, white dial. But ‘Enoch’ of this Parish was offering a few...

    The size is both a strength and weakness. Yes, it’s slim and graceful on the wrist. But the result is a too small and over-crowded dial, crammed with three sub dials and too much writing. The...
