    Tried it last November at a Rolex evening and then said I wanted one 11th March this year, so not too long to wait.

    Thank you, tbh I went today to collect but wasn't 100% sure as it had been a while since I tried it, soon as I saw it any apprehension went out the window. Not normally a Rolex fanboy but I think this model is pretty close to perfect.

    How long was the wait if you don’t mind me asking? I’m 50 in just over 2yrs and think I’d like this as a present to myself if dates worked (and earlier would be good anyway!)

    *EDIT. Ignore all that. Sorry missed your reply above. Not too bad then so will look into this.

    Picked one of these up last week, bit of an impulse purchase, hadn't been looking for one but once I'd handled it & felt the quality I couldn't pass it up. The mesh is quality & the finish of the whole watch is of an extremely high standard.









    So far loving the retro style.

    Bought my first Rolex Sat, not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is a cool wrist buddy.

    They seem to be filtering through to OB now. I am 6th on the list at mine in Manchester. They have received x 1 now of x 32 they have been allocated .... all sold and over subscribed. Are you “over the moon” with it ? looks great.

    Have to say these look a lot better from the real life pictures I have seen compared to the marketing shots that were released. It’s a grower!

    Hi I have 7 1/2 inch wrists will this be an issue ? Never had a Speedmaster although I tried on a 57 and found the bracelet too tight. Will be disappointed if I have to turn mine down due to strap sizing !
    Have a PO on bracelet which is fine.

    I have 7" wrist and had 3 links taken out so you should be ok as I like mine loose ,failing that you can always get extra links for it.

    The standard old Speedy Pro is more authentic at a fraction of the price.

    But that's not the point is it. This is a limited edition specifically aimed at the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. Very topical at present as the big day gets nearer. The limited editions thread currently running addresses your point. I had two Snoopy's - bizarrely a limited edition to celebrate a near disaster and an Ed White from 1964 but never owned a standard Speedy Pro.

    Each to their own, I like it 👍

    Also got this a few weeks ago, still waiting for the strap to come in, apparently a shortage of the leather strap and deploying clasp!

    Question.

    The eagle model in the box, are the gold coloured legs plastic or metal?

    Great watch Ryan, the bezel on these is lovely and the way it changes colour in the different lights is superb. Really love mine.

    Picked this up from a local AD, the one model of Nomos which appealed to me due to the blued steel hour & minute hands, and the red seconds hand.

    Not new but I haven’t worn it in the last 10 years

    Just back from Simon Freese my 1982 Omega. Simon went above and beyond to source a new crystal. Following a full service the watch arrived beautifully packaged and set to within 3 seconds. Not bad for a 37 yr old wearer.

    Apologies for the poor photos , they are just off my ipad in a dark study.

    I didn't intend to go DJ route but the colour on the dial is just so mesmerising and it's such a classic elegance.

    That’s a good one. Can you get it with the jubilee bracelet I think that would work well with the fluted bezel?

    Interesting that it’s taken a drastic shortage of sports watches to make hobbyists see what ‘ordinary’ buyers have known all along....that the DJ is probably the best all-round Watch Rolex makes.
    Which is why it’s the historic, and current, best seller. The DJ’s sin has been that you can actually buy it. Hobbyists often want what they can’t easily get, regardless.
    You can get it with the Jubilee...which, I agree, suits this Model.

    I wanted a jubilee but didn't have any in stock and when I tried the 36mm DJ with Jubilee it feels that Oyster Bracelet is more sporty/ musculine.

    Best

    Agreed oyster bracelet is more a guy one, I’ve yet to see the new GMT in the flesh with the jubilee to see if it works on that as well

    Well , as they both fit...mine was switched for me in the shop...you could always try a Jubilee at some time in the future. It’s true that they make the watch a touch more ‘bling’ so you could see the Oyster as more masculine. Both nice.

    I'll order jubilee bracelet as well and the salesperson did offered but he was taking ages and I needed to go somewhere else.
