That's higher than a WG Daytona.

I'd wear it. :-)
Gary
Parent By Stryke Date 2007-09-08 05:22
Yes it is.  Also more complicated and much bigger and heavier.  It really is a beefy watch.  Glad Rolex is going this route.  It is stunning in person.  I actually thought about keeping it. :-)

Hmmmmmm.......$34,850 and the crown doesn't line up. :-(  I know that's a hot button for you, Gil. :-) Seriously, it's not for me but I like the platinum/wg better than the TT.
Parent - By cheese32 Date 2007-09-08 05:22
most of people hated it
what you think gil? yay or nay?
Parent - By Stryke Date 2007-09-08 05:23
Hated the photos, in love with it in my hand. :-)

I guess Rolex knows what they are doing afterall :-)
Parent By P Lover Date 2007-09-08 06:57
Gil,

How does the YM look next to it?
Does the YM II look much bigger?
Parent - By unknown Date 2007-09-09 17:55
each his own choice ofcourse but it's the worst rolex ever.
more,.  it's one of the worst watches ever seen

2 months ago they hit the stores in Belgium
(and today you'll find them at every store, no waiting lists at all)

my dealer called me so I went to the store.
I wanted to see the watch because I hoped it would be better in real than on pics
My conclusion was the same ... It looks like a cheap ugly fake rolex

Ha ha,
10 min function as a minimum for each shoot?
Parent - By Ottosan Date 2007-09-08 08:10
Those are the best photos I've seen of it.

I admit it; I like it.  I'll reserve final judgment until I actually see it in person; but now that the shock of the design departure has worn off, it looks pretty good to me.  Even the YG version is starting to look better to me in recent photos.

Window shopping during the week and saw it in the 'flesh' for the first time. Very impressive but way outside my price range.
Parent By walds11 Date 2007-09-08 09:36
Looks great Gil. 
Parent - By harb (Moderator) Date 2007-09-08 09:41
I guessed it would.
Parent - By Alanski Date 2007-09-08 10:46
hey gil

give us a tutorial on what it does and how it works?
whast with all the arrows and pointers and stuff?
Parent - By harb (Moderator) Date 2007-09-08 11:11
All that's been already posted, Alan - see http://www.newturfers.com/bin/mwf/topic_show.pl?pid=505341
Parent - By Alanski Date 2007-09-08 11:32
cheers harb :-)
Parent By xelor Date 2007-09-08 20:12
Saw one earlier today in Brent Cross (Fraser Hart), looks better in the flesh than any pictures can show. It's just shy of 18k in the UK.
Parent - By itsthemarket Date 2007-09-09 02:51
Not quite the first...but definitely beating most ADs.   Carl Marcus at Capetown in Roswell, GA had you beat by at least one day - he put his on his website Friday.
Parent - By Stryke Date 2007-09-09 04:37 Edited 2007-09-09 04:46
I know Carl Marcus and since it is a stock photo I would say he is pre-selling the watch and does not have physical possession.

He has called me in the past to fill sold orders last minute.  Nonetheless, great people and I'm glad they have it on offer. :-)

Here are some wrist shots and comparison shots so you can see how big it really is.

Parent By geoff malter Date 2007-09-09 06:16
That is a big, thick watch.. How's it stack up size-wise to the GMT anniversary, or the 40mm YM?
Parent - By P Lover Date 2007-09-09 06:19
Wow!
Looking better every time I see a photo of it.
Parent By xelor Date 2007-09-09 08:26
makes the Daytona look like a ladies watch now :-)
Parent By harb (Moderator) Date 2007-09-10 14:08
Wow! Amazing size difference.

Well, there's the new Daytona case...;-)
Parent - By Nin Date 2007-09-11 10:26
Looks great in person, i looked at one on Firday in Glasgow, very impressive. :-)
Parent - By harb (Moderator) Date 2007-09-11 12:06
Where was that?
Parent By Nin Date 2007-09-11 13:17
Think we have covered this!! ;-) lmao
Parent - By Chris L Date 2007-09-11 23:28
Hi Gil,

Can you describe how the pushers opperate?  Do they screw down?
Parent By harb (Moderator) Date 2007-09-12 08:08
They do not screw down, Chris.
Parent - By WatchMe1217 Date 2007-09-09 11:15 Edited 2007-09-09 12:53
Pduggan had it on their web site last Friday the 7th (could have been even sooner I think), so not quite the first in the USA, but pretty close! (not a stock pic either).  Cool watch though.
Parent - By Stryke Date 2007-09-09 16:33
This watch came in on Tuesday the 4th but I was too busy to go pick it up and only grabbed it on Friday the 7th.

Parent - By stuylus Date 2007-09-10 13:58
That watch is so big it almost makes Gil's arm look normal size.
Parent - By scurfa Date 2007-09-10 19:37
look at the photo's of it in this months 00/24 magazine and it really grows on you.
Parent - By Peter1 Date 2007-09-10 21:14
I think it would look even better in YG. :-)

The YG has a blue bezel.  Not as nice looking as the WG.
<Space for Rent>
Parent - By Peter1 Date 2007-09-11 00:34
Yes WatchTime (August 2007) has it on the cover. (The YG -blue bezel) Not too shabby thou! :-) WG does have a nice look to it. It's like anything else you have to see it in person to get a true feel for it.
