@stefs - Very, very nice.

Got shades of a CWL C11 MSL to it and loving the desert colour. :thumbup: Probably cost a pretty penny though. :problem:

Thinking myself of trying out a Vintage Bronze look;-

Proper Fleiger size with 46mm case. :)

@smegwina - want one too?

Where do I do the deed?

May be the rolex diver is too ubiquitous for me.

I love this though:

This is probably my favourite modern rolex:

The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Post by james80 »

Dreaming about a used 16600 Sea-Dweller but for the price I'd get a decent used one in the states I can buy a new 114060 duty free next time I visit England.

The plan (thought/dream) is a daily wear everything watch. I know I've rambled about this in the past but one of the two above is a real possibility before the end of the year and I'll most likely sell all my CWLs and the Magrette. The Carrera may also go on the block in favor of another chrono say a Sinn 103.

For fun of it what say you, new 114060 or used 16600 for even money?

PS anyone know UK retail on an Explorer and Explorer II?

^^^^^ £4,300 and £5,350.

Given the choice between a 16600 or a new 114060 I would go for neither. I don't like the case shape on the SubC and every time I try on a 16660 I end up thinking that it doesn't sit very well on my wrist.

My choice would therefore be between a 14060M or for new a SD4000.

Of those two it would be 16600 for me all day long.

Possibly the cleanest and most classy watch I have seen. Love to see it live...

Another vote for the 14060M. Tried on a SD last week as was really disappointed. Date window is too small to be of any use - hence the logic of a cyclops, of which I'm no fan. The 14060M just seemed IMHO to be a better design in all aspects, the only weakness being the bracelet, which reliable and tried and tested as it is, is a bit too rattly. That said, I've had mine refurbished and it's as good if not better than new.

I am liking this Bremont LE - 20 pieces, Alt1-C with the polished case and blue dial/strap.

I am revising for exams again which means my breaks are often spent on forums. Which means I day dream about watches much more!

Thoughts are IWC heavy at the moment.
