Dealers seem to think these are worth a whole lot more than that already.
I tried one on at the Royal Exchange - yes I preferred it to the standard model, mainly because the bracelet had brushed centre links, with polished outer links. But at £615 more and no discount, it seemed rather a lot for a nice box and deluxe nato - so I didn't like it enough to buy! The Boutique said it would sell out quickly and for once they were correct.

Still they are going for a smaller amount above rrp than the Snoopy Speedmaster. Complete madness! :)

34mm. Wears like a 38 though (with the 39 wearing 42 for me). I don't see this green variant being available long compared to others that have sold and I like it's mix of colours and it's use of 11 lumed batons rather than a mix of lumed and unlumed indices.

I'm not a huge fan of modern rolex but vintage prices are going bonkers. Austin Kaye want £3200 for a Rolex serviced 6694 date for Petes sake with most old datejust going for 2.5ish these days -even on chrono24....might aswell buy new for the warranty and movement upgrades. That and I beleive Babin is slowly improving modern Rolex designs.

A bit like getting an Eagle E-type. All the benefits of modern mechanicals with classic looks.

Nearly; last time was three weeks ago. :wink: I was collecting one of my Elliot Brown Canfords yesterday, which had been away for some tlc.

On Vulcains, suggest you give Jonathan at Page and Cooper a call. He mentioned yesterday that he had recently, or is about to (can't remember which), adjusted his Vulcain price to be more competitive.

Just been browsing Eagle E-Type, that's something to aim for with a lottery win!
