Rolex 50th Anniversary Seadweller

Post by vjb.knife » Wed Jul 12, 2017 8:00 pm

I bought this watch recently and really like the size and balance of it better than any other Rolex I have had. That includes the last model Seadweller which I still own and several other SD's dating back to 1983 as well as three or four Submariners a 2 tone GMT and a Deepsea (the worst of the bunch).

The increased diameter along with the wider bracelet really make this watch fit and carry better than the others, IMO. I will just let the pictures do the talking for now.

Sorry but can the OP not post pics requiring logging into another forum just to view pics, please? If nothing else, upload as an attachment or just link from whatever host you are using to post pics on USN. I'm a USN member but I'm not going there to look at pics. Thanks!

Thanks for reposting the pictures. I was trying to figure out another way to put them up, but that solved it this time.

I am enjoying the watch though and feel like the increase in size especially the width of the bracelet really works for me. The new movement is also very impressive with it's 70+ hour power reserve.
