Welcome! Try to narrow it down. Size, dial color, dual color or uni color bezel, two tone, etc. As far as pricing, below $5k, below $10k?

Welcome to the forum. There is nothing wrong with going to your local AD to try things on and find out what you like. With the current Rolex shortage that is going to be the difficult part. Almost all stainless Steel sport models are impossible to try on because most AD’s have nothing in stock. Keep going into different AD’s and checking what they have, sometimes you can get lucky.

I agree-- if you don't see the sports models in the case don't be afraid to ask. Some will keep them in the back to fend off grey mkt dealers.

How in the world was he able to delete his original post? Was he a Scout? Leave no trace?

Sorry, guys. I thought I deleted his whole thread, but I must have just deleted the original post. He was a spammer.
