Needed to add something a little different to the stable....

Post by slashd0t » Tue Mar 15, 2016 3:48 pm

This one has been on my radar for awhile, just never really happened - until now :D

Such a sweet piece. Kinda fitting that I'm from Canada that I went polar. The black dial actually doesn't really excite me, especially since I have a sub.

Thoughts? Anyone else around here rockin' one of these? I know it's not a dive watch, but I don't think she'll have any issues in water :thumbsup:

Several owners here. I had one a couple years back. Great watch, congrats.

Nice one, it's my every day wear. All of the other watches I own are collecting dust in the safe. I was out catching a body wave with my son at Bondi last weekend, this watch will be fine for most shallow water recreational diving. J

Congrats! Great piece, and one that's really grown on my over the years (the white in particular). Seems a bit underappreciated/under the radar or something too... I think I'd like that if I were an owner. Like the Canuck slant on it too! :thumbsup:

Cheers,

Love it.
But it you're honestly asking if anyone else has one here- you must not read others posts.

Thanks all! I know I've seen a few of the black dials around, but usually it seems the polar dial gets a bit under appreciated ... I'll have to keep my eye open for the other posts!

Oh, and Matt ,.... It looks amazing on orange!

Very nice Jamie...I've got the older version and still love the white dial...

Clem told me you liked that watch a long time ago after I told him I did as well. He hates it, but he has no taste. I love mine. Congrats, Jamie.

I have one and it's prob the only Rolex I'll ever own. Def my fav Rolex model and is absolutely fan-freakin-tastic. It's PERFECT IMO.

Wears like a dream.

Congrats.
