    Best of a very bad bunch of pics, complete with misaligned bezel and in need of a decent clean. Not looking too bad for 23 years old though, fresh from a movement only service.

    Got “the call” last weekend for this and been wearing it non-stop. I have no interest in the black submariner, but love the sea dweller, just has a little something to it.

    Barely out of its box, and already one of my favourite things.

    Looks great. Hoping this will be the next edition (have been quoted 6 months but that sounds too good to be true). Worried the no date sub won't get any wear once it's in. Such a nice watch.

    They have(had?) a shop in Geneva tucked away in the back streets with some fantastic pieces. Roy spent 10 mins showing me a vintage Speedmaster and walking me through serial numbers and rarity etc despite me saying I wasn't looking at the time.

    Seemed appropriate for today’s adventures. Love this watch and one of my top 3 all time.

    I was a long time admirer of this blue dial. In the flesh it is quite something.

    Had to let go of my SD 16600 to get this, so hope it lives up to the watch it has replaced.

    Wish I could have kept both, but I had to try this and so the SD had to make way.

    Loved the SD and I hope to own another one day.

    Out of the modern sports Rolex lineup, I’m finding this is head and shoulders above most in terms of wearability. The case shape is excellently proportioned.

    Any remorse I feel for selling the SD is quickly tempered when I catch a glimpse of the lovely sunburst dial on the YM.

    Please could you confirm the model numbers for these two if you know them.

    I see they are both SD but not sure of the extent of the differences.

    Thank you

    Left is 116600, right is 16600. Ceramic Vs non.

    Two lovely, lovely watches. One unsuitable for fat wrists, the other borderline. Annoying as they're two of the best looking watches Rolex have made in recent time.

    Totally agree.

    Yet to try the 116600 but the 16600 I have had the pleasure of owning.

    I’m sure Chris Harris was sporting one on the last episode of Top Gear.

    Funny how They look completely different sizes. Here’s a comparison alongside the GMT.

    That’s the SD43 in the middle which is a different version again of the Sea Dweller and much bigger at 43mm wide.

    Correct, well spotted ! My Deep Sea is probably the daily wear. I think the most under rated watch.

    Congrats! It looks great! Was it a long wait? Just out of interest, what is your wrist size? I'm considering the SD43 also, but with a 6.75" wrist, I'm not sure it will look right.

    I waited 1 month from a AD that I have some purchase history with. Wrist size about 6.5” and is very comfy on the wrist. In terms of it “looking” right...if you think it’s ok then that’s all that matters.

    Picked this up yesterday, my first Rolex. I had been contemplating an Explorer 1 but after getting the 40mm Everest I went off the applied indices of the Rolex and didn’t want cost of a vintage piece, so then attracted to the Milgauss , think it’s the second hand that did it , as a bit under the radar for a Rolex. Gave my “expression of interest “ to the AD in Leeds last November and told they’d probably give me a ring in the New Year, didn’t expect anything or maybe middle of year if at all! With this thought last week I started looking at 40mm Explorer 2 white dial which has now become my latest desire! Then out of the blue , phone call from AD , Milgauss with my name on if I want it! - yes! So down to Leeds to pick up yesterday and on my wrist since.
    Really comfortable, looks great and fantastic quality- chuffed doesn’t cover it.
