I thought you already knew that when you bought it. I remember we discussed before how SDC43 and polar exporer2 42mm don't have crystal replacement available.
I was optimistic. If a custom crystal can be cut, they would probably be the ones to source it.

Re: 126600

It's hard to argue that this watch is a nice move for Rolex. Sized up but still wearable, and that red line is amazing. But for me, a Sea-Dweller should never have a cyclops. This is going to look fantastic if/when you fix that minor "issue." Finally have an update, and added to my initial post aft...

Re: Anyone sell on chrono24 versus eBay?

Lol good to know. It seems that very typically the prices on there are very inflated but then sometimes you'll find someone who's actually at the real going pre-owned price.

I had heard just the 115. 117 also discontinued?
Both discontinued. Joe still had a 117 at the Miami Boutique a few week ago.
The asking on these is all over the map! Do you know what they were asking?
I pinged Joe K, and will let you know if they still have it.

Re: Explorer I thoughts

I'm sort of gravitating back to Rolex, but I'm very conscientious about wearing a watch that screams "Rolex!!" in my line of work (my ceramic Sub was definitely noticed and commented on a bit too frequently for my liking). The Explorer I just seems like an unassuming, high-quality workhorse. I've w...

Agree with all this (up to Art's point about his AD wooing him :lol:). But since I've never bought a Rolex from an AD (and have zero relationship power to factor in), I had to take all those considerations into account, and more. One of the interesting things I learned from this deal was how the TRF...

126600

Just starting a thread to share some impressions of the Rolex 126600 Sea-Dweller, which can ideally become a reference for those interested in the transition to the new case size and bracelet, the 3235 movement, the cyclops on the crystal, etc. Rolex made some interesting (and controversial) changes...
