I still don't see that many 2254s, plenty of the blue "Bond" ones though!
    I smile to myself when I see someone wearing the same watch as the one I have on whether it be my Submariner or my SMP300. Clearly we both have good taste!

    Only once have I seen another Seamaster 120M though.

    Given the ground swell of opinion against me though, I’m beginning to wonder why it’s so difficult to buy a new one. You’d think ADs would be drowning in the things based on this thread 
    I am with you. The new one !. This could be my next purchase. ( or deep sea )

    I am with you. I had a few 5 digits Rolex'es over the years (a couple of SDs, a ND Sub and a Sub LV), but everything that came after starting with the Maxi cases, the DSSD, Hulk, Batman, a.s.o. does not really feel appealing to me.

    The lugs/bracelet combination being the worst of problems for me. The image associated to it the second. Everybody wearing one the next...
