Any wrist shots of the Mocha 556i you can share? Thank you! Image

Apparently you can phone the boutique to buy and they will post out to you. :)

Seems more sensible than having to visit an AD in person just to pick up a Steel Professional Rolex model.

another week another watch to dream of :D
This time it is this. I had one and really liked it but stupidly moved it on so I could try an el primero. I really wish I had it back. Great size, lovely sunburst blue dial and applied numerals with lume. Ticks the boxes. (pic nicked from t'internet)

I like the OP39 (114300) but whilst you guys have gone for the blue and grey dials, I have always preferred the white dialled version. Great watches though.

Love the look of these 37mm Captain Cooks, especially the blue.

^^ I tried on one of their bigger brothers a while back and the bracelet didn't inspire me tbh... Felt very flimsy and not very well made

That's disappointing to hear.
Do you think thats a "feature" of BoR bracelets due to amount of pivot points/individual links, or just the Rado in particular?
I've never worn one, so wouldn't have a clue how a decent one should feel.

My collection already is a bit Omega heavy, but I do dream of one of these... even if I can't get my head around the size. I daren't ever try one on just in case I'm wrong!

Ceramic, platinum and white gold loveliness.

Worth a try imho - I have the blue 45 titanium Captain Cook (non-bracelet version) and like it enough for it to be in my main watch box. Solid, well built and a bit different - just don't pay rrp.
Current collection incl Citizen, G-Shock, Rolex, Seiko, Sinn & Tag.

I believe the lug to lug is ~49.5mm so it should wear quite nicely - same as a regular Speedy ;)

The watch was fine, just the bracelet didn't feel right to me, might be because of BoR style but like I say it felt cheap and flimsy imo and it did put me off.... I am predominantly a bracelet wearer though.
