    Show your Rolex.

    I'm without a Rolex at the mo, reminiscing about those I've had. Please share your pics, past and present!

    My only Gold Rolex. 1803.



    My only Dweller (almost my fave).



    4 out of 5 dads at the leisure centre is wearing one of these!!

    White dial isnt for everyone, but I really love that it goes under most radar.

    Understated class, but missed the date too much!


    The other one! Spot the difference

    My first Rolly. Miss it, but 34mm isn't quite enough!



    Too Much Bling?



    Just enough Bling



    Another go at 34mm. Failed again.



    My favourite Bling

    The most versatile Rolex:














    Wouldn't be right not to try a DJ or 2




    Never before in human conflict has a chronometer certificate been so important for no reason at all!


    And the Master IMHO
    This I should have Kept forever!



    There were more, but these are the ladies I miss most.

    Let's see yours!

    Well, I'm a neophyte - I've only ever had the one. But it gets around.

    Quite a catalogue there. I like some of your comments as they sit well with me. Couldn't settle on a 36mm anything, pushed myself towards a sub (which I will still probably have one day) but everyone seemed to have one. Didn't really want blingy although I love the gold centred straps.
    I eventually came to the conclusion that...
    Was the one for me. Like cars, motorbikes I'll never settle on just one so I know a collection is now inevitable when funds permit....
    Can I ask why you don't have one at the moment?...

    My first and only Rolex so far. Would love to add a BLNR at some point. Plus love seeing all these Rolexes on different straps...they look great.

    I have three - and they're the only watches I own. Although I'm probably known as an Omega fanboy around these parts, they don't have a model at the moment that appeals to me enough that's the correct size for my wrist.

    My "smart clothing" and sentimental watch - the mighty BLNR:



    My "casual clothing" watch - the do everything SDc:



    My beater - the transitional 16660. Currently with our very own Cannop awaiting a service. I can't wait to get it back - I miss it a lot!:

    Down to just one, had to put all my eggs in one basket to finally secure my grail watch.

    The terrible and honest truth is that I sold my Sea Dweller to buy a car! :-(

    But, my collection at the moment is a little more varied, and due to financial position I haven't fancied consolidating the collection into fewer pieces in the last few months. Mine is a rolling collection, so at the moment owning a coupe of Omegas, Tag, Breitling Ball Bremont and a could of Seikos is where the money is spread. (If that makes sense). I'm still playing the field.

    My other goes at 34mm, I have given it a fair stab!

    Probably the most balanced Rolex out there. Transitional Swiss dial. I'd still have the bugger if I hadn't hit harder times.

    Loving the pictures!

    I have only one to share but with its 42mm I find it sits nicely on my big fat wrists, and it is passable under a suit as well as more casually.

    Show your Rolex.

    That's how I always used to take them Steve. Until I moved house and it all went wrong! Now the sun falls all wrong!

    That's a stunning Daytona! Love it!

    I reverted to a Chair shot.



    And the Concrete post! (Ouch)

    Love this thing.

    Classic, understated chronometer for all occasions.

    Snapped with an IPhone timing my Lasagne earlier.

    Unfortunately am rubbish at taking pictures so don't often shoot anything, shame as I've had some nice material things which I'd like to look back on.

    Below are part of current collection, the Explorer II Polar is my everyday wear watch and the one I enjoy the most (although I've enjoyed all my Plexi models but wearing them regularly the little scratches I'd pick up on the glass eventually got to me).

    What's the story on this one - a sort of Paul Newman 5513 ?

    It'll be a 'prototype' you see, for the purposes of Sales Corner. The story can be whatever you like, verified by people you invent and then you can lie, and lie, and lie about it on here, even when you're found out.

    Just like the OP of this thread.

    ...anyhow...

    moving on (not my pic) but I have one of these with a T<25 dial.

    Mine has got a lovely lume patina just in the first stages.

    It seemed huge, and heavy when I first bought it 20 years ago...now it's actually the smallest watch I own.

    Really should wear it more.

    Indeed. If anyone who is relatively new to TZ is confused then just search 'heroes and villains' for the OP.

    Because I sometimes need to know the time somewhere else;



    Because I sometimes steal my wife's watch;



    Because I sometimes wash the dishes wearing a watch;



    Because I sometimes have to wear a suit;
