Before I left the UK, I took a trip to my home town of London and trod the well worn watch route of Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Bond and Oxford Streets, so much I wanted to see, including one I couldn't find anywhere - the new Rolex Deep Sea D-blue dial - no-one had it.

About 3-weeks ago, I was in Bangkok, and after visiting the swatch repair service centre in Wireless Road (you can just wander in and they'll look at your watch there and then), popped into the new Central Embassy Dept. Store and trawled around the watch boutiques. And finally, in their very own boutique, I found the Rolex that I absolutely fell in love with, hook, line and sinker. It's a brute of a watch and this stock photo pays it scant regard. It is simply stunning and I want it. Sadly, my wallet say's otherwise. :(

So tempted with the DSSD. It is a stunner and I will probably pull the trigger this year, but my heart still hankers for either one of these.

Both models are big, brash and extraordinarily expensive and in no way really justifiable but............ oh mama.......
Now those are more to my liking Nick than any of the aforementioned Rolex. Good choice.

I'm not particularly dreaming of any particular watch at present other than perhaps this now it is in Club 995

Thats a lot of watch and tech for money Guy. Besides, everyone needs a 7750 in their life (if just for the wobble!)

Quite agree Nick, which is why I'm dreaming.

I've got a 7750 already though in my C40 Speedhawk and not sure if I'd let it go, or need a second.

I completely forgot about your Speedhawk. Not sure I would let that go either! One of the 'classic' CW's in every sense of the word.

Go for the sumo WS. Buy from creation or similar and you will barely loose anything. I everyone needs a Seiko.
