    Rolex YM 126622 - Which dial?

    Does anyone have/seen the blue dial next to the rhodium dial? Thoughts on which one to go for?

    Thanks

    There isn't a correct answer to this question, but personally I prefer the Blue, which looks stunning in the flesh.

    Blue is a stunner but Rhodium is just as special in a slightly more subtle way so its whatever floats your boat.

    Blue is a gorgeous dial imo. The light play is great.

    Another vote for the blue here.

    I think the Rhodium dial doesnít have the contrast between dial, bezel and case like the blue does.

    Blue is the nicest dial in a YM. I would take the older platinum dial everytime over the rhodium.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Iíve tried both on the wrist and for me personally, I prefer the rhodium. However, in a superb display of fence sitting, the blue is blooming lovely and it would be a tough choice to make. If I had the cash obviously

    Nearly bought the platinum years ago , but hesitated and didnít buy , tried the blue on and quite liked it but didnít pull the trigger.

    Saw the Rhodium dial version and bought it immediately , with hindsight Iím glad I waited , itís a lovely watch.

    If I had the choice of all three , it would be Rhodium then the Blue as a purchase, I donít think Iíd buy the platinum at all now .

    Pity the OP will probably not get the chance to try them on side by side .

    The answer is pretty simple you absolutely need them both 🤪

    I have the blue one. In most light conditions it appears quite dark and muted, contrary to the publicity pictures. For that reason, it gets my vote. It looks great in the sun and the rest of the time it has great contrast and easy legibility. It also offsets the platinum bezel better than the lighter dials (IMO).

    I tried both on and went for rhodium with no regrets at all. Having said that, if there was no choice other than blue Iíd have been happy to have that one. Both are fabulous watches imo. (maybe that doesnít help the OP, sorry!)

    Yeah Iíve been offered the blue one and am currently low on funds. Thinking of whether to save up for in case something else nice gets offered to me (I have some purchase history) or whether to purchase it.

    If I do buy it then it probably means no more watches for at least another 3 months though! So unsure...

    I've just been offered the Rhodium one by an AD having put my name down a few months ago.

    But having bought another 16710 recently I've put off any new purchase to another time.
