Post by Hans »

Guys, I just picked up this Rolex today... Man, what a fantastic watch!

Will I throw away my Malvern after this acquisition? Well, most certainly not! Love the GMT, but it lets you even appreciate more the price and quality of the Malvern!

Wow, gorgeous watch. I think I prefer the black/red, but the all black looks good too!

So how does the CW feel after wearing the Rolex around? 25x better (about the price difference)?

Sweet, Hans. Cool that it has interchangable bezel inserts. Are you going to leave the magnifier on?

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I'm seriously in love with the Marcello C. Nettuno III diver watch - the younger and economic brother of your King Kong R. :)

Still inspired by the topic music & GMT, I tried to make a better shot:

As a kid I played it for a few years until I was 12 or so... Now I'm picking it up again...

Same here.. but I'm already playing again. So I had a pause of 4 years or so.

Hans, we must have a lot in common; i have a steel and white malvern and am picking up my (new) GMT master with black bezel this afternoon!
Not especially into watches but have recently been left a small inheritance and thought i would treat myself!

(El Tiempo - I think I like the cyclops, but i'm never quite too sure - if I do want to remove it is it something I can do myself or should i take it to a specialist? Thanks)

In theory the cyclops can be removed by yourself, but I would never do this, let a qualified watchmaker do it!

I love the cyclops, it really belongs to the GMT, I don't like the look without it!

Ok, Thanks for that - I'm 99% sure I'll leave it on. Just about to leave the house to go and pick it up - I feel quite excited - how sad is that for a forty year old !!!
