Would you still want the Rolex after you got the Monta? If you would I'd say keep saving/waiting

No doubt. I think it is even one of Downers rules, although forgive me, I forget the number.

That is so nice neil. Looks like applied lum filled numerals which is a winning combo for me. How much? 15ish?

^^^^^^ Approx £13,700 new on rubber and about £2k more on the bracelet. :shock:

Preowned under 2-3 years old seem to be more than RRP!

Still that's the point of a dreaming thread. :)

That's because there is at least a 3 year waiting list on the aquanaut. Some dealers won't even put you on a waiting list!

You mean ADs and other dealers would like to pretend there is a 3 year waiting list......

Now c'mon Neil you know...I just couldn't resist :-"

A fantastic watch indeed - but at that price, I would want one that wouldn't sweat quite as much :lol:
