Very nice. Slimmer than other 300m dive watches, with a 100hr PR, what's not to like. :thumbup:

Also very taken by the dial of the Seamaster Regatta watch, although the case is a bit thick.

Definitely this..... Oooh yes. Perfectly formed, with bags of provenance and classic looks.

Surprised we don't see more of these.

^^^^That one at 38mm is too small for you Nick, but they also do a 43mm. The other good point is they are available on a reassuringly expensive BP NATO; IIRC about £400Ish! :shock:

Yep that's what I want as well but at around £10k pre-owned I doubt it'll ever happen.

It's a top watch that I like in it's latest iteration with the blue lumed 3, 6, 9 and at an achievable price. Shame in a way it's only available with a black dial rather than the coloured options in the other Rolex models.

If you can be happy with the 36mm size then my blue op with the lumed 3 6 9 is a pretty good alternative. It was a straight shoot out between the two for me but the blue dial just edged it for me although I understand the size isn’t for everyone

I'd be very happy with 36m your blue op is a lovely watch. If I'm ever in a position for an explorer I'd go for a 114270
