A huge thanks to Mr. Wu for helping out on this, making the impossibly painful experience of buying a Rolex a breeze.

Thanks Matt :gayumbrella:

Awesome. Huge fan of the 16570 vs the newer 216570 model in spite of the improvements. I want another polar at some point.

Huge congrats. ImageImageImage

IWW lume and service nearly ten years ago. Still runs like a champ. Jack also swapped out the black bezel for this salty Pepsi insert. I’m a sucker for a seasoned Pepsi bezel.

Have a great rest of the week/weekend!

Alpina Seastrong fresh off the truck. I couldn’t pass up this crazy deal. Eric is right, this is amazing value.

I was one of the first to pick up their introductory model. Was really impressed, but I like this one more. I think you'll like it.

LOL, a well deserved joke :)
I think this one is ok, it’s classically sized and nicely thin.
Liking this a lot so far.

The GMT movement is far superior in design vs the ETA, as I can move the hour hand independently.
It makes for a great travel watch.
Since I take around 80 flights a year across multiple time zones, it’s a nice feature.
