yep me too, i chop and change about what Rolex I would like to aim for but pretty much always come back to the GMT. It is the right size and proportions, less common than a sub, thinner lugs (slightly) than a sub, real history and a genuine Rolex innovation in the travellers GMT movement. Bezel has to be bicolour in my book, by the time I can afford something like this there will probably be other combos in steel, blue black looks great though.

Only thing i'd change is the PCLs, and I probably would get them brushed.

you'll have seen that watchfinder have a chance to win a pre-owned explorer ii 16570 by entering your details in a draw (and expanding their mailing list).
i have no problem with expanding their mailing list, so i'm dreaming of nothing but an explorer ii until march 8)

(it's my birthday in march :lol: )

I keep entering those Watchfinder draws, but never seem to win. I must be getting close.

The guy who bought my Sinn 358 is selling it again, and struggling to move it. He's reduced the price quite a bit, and it's beginning to look very attractive... and I do kind of miss it..

He may be... His advert is on TZUK, and he states the following:
I'll take part trades, but would like to pocket at least £1000. Something toolish, 41-43mm, from Fortis, Tutima, Damasko, or maybe Glycine might tempt me.
