Yesterday I came to the conclusion I'm definitely going to do the trade. Everything about the Explorer is "better" - more modern, more durable, classic looks. This morning the gold dial and markings of the Oysterdate is trying to charm me back.

I just noticed this. Can you not do both? I don't really know Rolex models that well, but that oyster date looks like a classic vintage watch that would be hard to replace, and doesn't seem to be a watch that has been homaged to death, as it were.

I'm considering the "both" option too. :thumbup:
Too much of a stretch probably. :thumbdown:

^^^ Go for the Explorer. The only watch that I have that I would ever consider wearing, if restricted to wearing one watch for a few months, with no rotation allowed. :)

I’m dreaming of the Black Bay 58. I’m saving pennies. No idea why but, recently, the whole fauxtina thing has started to appeal. Will it disappoint against my 38mm Trident Pro 600 (that wonderful, lumed bezel always makes me smile), my current favourite?

^^^Well I did take a detour on my way home, to Ernest Jones.
They had the 42mm version, I was very close to getting it, but they said they'd have the 38mm in a few weeks, so i thought I'd wait and try.
The 42mm one didn't wear as big as my C8 and it felt very comfortable, I've got a feeling the 38 may be a bit small for me, but we'll see.

I also asked about the Pelagos 39 waitlist.
60 people on it, and they've had 5 in since launch.

Ouch. That's a shame. Although I know there's one floating out there on the For Sale board, so I hope you will be lucky!

I'd like to get one, but I don't think I am willing to hoop jump to get it.

Great enabling. Everyone seems to agree i should go for it. I agree too. But that final step seems so hard to take. :?
