Ah! I love the simple beauty of it! Shame that rolex design has been faked and homaged to the kingdom come. that's why I'm apprehensive to buy a sub in the first place... besides, I'm an Omega fanboy lol, more omega pics in coming days!That’s just light. It’s an untouched 16040.
Sub Dates are FAR more popular than Non-Date versions.Ah! I love the simple beauty of it! Shame that rolex design has been faked and homaged to the kingdom come. that's why I'm apprehensive to buy a sub in the first place... besides, I'm an Omega fanboy lol, more omega pics in coming days!
Also, I just cant stand maxi cases on newer rolexes, they are ugly as sin imo
Yeah I'm aware! I just can stand the cyclops haha, also ND is far more cleaner, esp two-liner! As a "tool watch" should be!Sub Dates are FAR more popular than Non-Date versions.
I guess I don't have an issue with the Maxi Cases, both old and new are 40mm. What I don't care for are the Explorer II 42MM. WAY to big for my girlie wrists.
For me Daytona is just more ostentatious Speedmaster without a cool story to go with it lolFor me, there is nothing particularly intriguing about a Daytona.
If I found one in an old suitcase, the only reason I'd keep it would be to show it off to watch-sniffers.
I don't even bother to set it on my watch. I'm not putting my glasses on to check the date, AND I'm not jumping through the hoops to figure out how to set it (and the day-of-week in two languages can kiss my ass if it thinks I'm gonna figure THAT out!).
tachymeter is like basic math compared to that bezel calculator thingy on navitimer tho! even I can use tachymeter! Do I use it? no ofc, it's rather dangerous to stare at your watch while driving after all lolAs this thread progresses I look forward to someone saying they actually understand how to use a tachymeter bezel AND they have a valid use for one in this era.
in the land of the tentacles, everybody wears Rolex, seen sub LV and hulk, regular sub and explorer everywhere, haven't seen many of Exp2 nor sea dweller in the wild tho. Also, can you regard datejust as a sport watch?I've got a Polar Explorer also. I love it. You'll see a thousand Subs and DateJusts before you see ONE Explorer.
I could think of nothing worse than having to pull my phone out whenever I want to know what time it isThere really is no reason other than collecting them to have a wristwatch. And the reason is that everyone carries a pocket watch with them every day, also known as a cell phone and that's enough for me.
