Is that a reference to a prior transaction from your seller? Or an inside joke with Broke? That's all I'd pay for a 16610 in less-than-perfect condition.



Rolex Submariner with date under 5 grand or substantially under 5 grand I would find suspicious. Unless it were beat to hell.

re: Paging Broke or Gaston. Watch check???? Updated.


Before I bought the Omega I was looking for either a Rolex Explorer II (16570) or No-Date Sub (14060). Every now and then one would pop up around $3k. I almost pulled the trigger on a Sub without a bracelet but I think I would get sick of a NATO strap if it was my only option (and a Rolex bracelet is nearly $1k). Eventually I came to my senses and went for the nearly-new Omega over the beater Rolex.

Yeah a Rolex on a NATO is just not cool enough. Needs that SS bracelet.

Bump. Got the watch today.

Almost panicked when I was it. It takes a minute. It looks tiny sitting in my hand with a Tag Link. But the more I look at it the more I smile. And the original owner never wore the leather strap apparently.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Link on how to post acceptable images on TD and NOT have someone right click me and send porn to my email or IP address?

What is the best/free website to do this.

Nice.

A decision we all must make. You want that type of watch BUT do you want to be "Rolex Guy"? I kind of do. But if I chicken out it might be an Omega.

i'm fairly comfortable in that role.

but seriously, even though i am solidly partial to rolex, i have owned and appreciate many other brands and styles, including omega, ball, and zenith. its good to get out of your comfort zone once in a while.

I don't think I ever wanted the Submariner. I put it on and it just didn't quite feel right while the Omega did. As far as dress watches I may eventually go for a black two tone datejust or a JLC reverso. I haven't seen the JLC in person but have liked them from the pics.
