Dream Achieved: My First Rolex

Post by AntonioPD » Sat Nov 07, 2015 7:37 pm

This thing is full of DWC DNA: Mark F (MDF), Jason (jtbenson), Mark T (drster) and now me. You all know Mark is great to deal with, but he's also just a great guy (no homo.) Thanks Mark! :thumbsup:

Sorry for the crap pics - I really should get a camera. The last one is one of Mark's sales pics.

Still love Bremont though. :bird:

Huge congrats. Pretty much the pinnacle of the modern dive watch, IMO.

Thanks guys!

Mike, first impressions after just 5 hours - I can already say this watch is like no other I've worn. Very simple design yet with a real presence; I like the fact that you can compare the 114060 to the '53 Sub and all the design elements remain. At 40 mil it still looks good on my 7.5 wrist - probably because lug to lug it's 44. And the bracelet is crazy comfortable; I like the fact that I can adjust it with Glidelock as needed to keep it fitting perfectly. And the blue Chromalight lume looks super cool too. Finally I'm told it's accurate to within 1 sec per week.

You get a sense of why Rolex takes a year to make each one of these. :thumbsup:

:love:
