    Some excellent shots there. The Sea-Dweller
    splash is my favourite.

    SD photos for me too (not just because I own one) - splash but also Buehlmann. Nice!

    Thanks, all.

    Yes I'm a real estate agent at RE/MAX and a professional photographer.

    I photograph the apartments and houses that I sell... myself.

    It's very different photography though.

    Love the Yatchmaster, beautiful dial. Owned one and regret letting it go in a deal to raise funds for another Rolex.
    The photos are stunning.

    This may seem a daft question to the Rolex experts (Rolexperts?) but whatís the difference between the Yachtmaster and the Submariner, other than colour scheme? Is there a difference in spec, purpose etc?

    Good question. I wrote an article of the watch (and its identity in the Rolex lineup) just recently. Maybe that answers to your question?

    Thanks man.

    That review is very high in Google results. I'm really happy about that article (and acquisition too). Nice to spread info about this less popular model.

    It was actually your review that confirmed to me that I needed to buy one.

    Excellent write up and photos.

    Wow! Amazing.

    It's probably my favorite Rolex watch. I wear the 16610 maybe a bit more but SD is the "real man's Sub".

    Having owned subs, both ceramic and 16610, Iíve got to say the 16600 SD is the pick of the bunch for me too.

    It does everything right.

    Camera means very little in watch photography as long as it's a decent camera with proper zoom. I've shot good shots with very expensive camera and very cheap camera. It's all about lighting and proper post-processing. It's not like expensive football shoes will make you the new Leo Messi haha.

    This is shot with Canon PowerShot A520 (old cheapo).

    Nice shots. Do you realise your yacht image has been flipped?

    Thanks.

    I eliminate it often with a white blank paper which I sometimes use under the lightbox surface. The idea is to get the light diffused to all areas in the lightbox. That's why the camera doesn't matter that much when you have the _ideal_ lighting conditions created by the box and lights.

    You can see the preview from the camera window directly and use such angles that don't produce glares and/or move the light above the lightbox accordingly. Sometimes the glare can be a good thing too and you can use it to your advantage... especially if you shoot watches that have strong AR coating like this Breitling of mine.
