^^^^ I reckon that is the best looking TT watch that Rolex produce. :thumbup:

Neil
Would tend to agree and I'm still waiting for the call from the AD - it will likely be a long wait.

The 116621 Yachtmaster runs it close in my opinion as the best TT Rolex.

Re: What Car do you drive??

Chris - Cheers for the links, will keep my eyes peeled over the coming weeks :thumbup: Bob - Not meaning to insult anyone, but terrible past experience with a Megane has been enough to put me off French cars for life! I will admit that they produce some decent looking models nowadays. Ryan, I've ha...

Re: What Car do you drive??

My PCH deal is up on my Tucson in May and I'm on the lookout for another SUV or estate. Haven't set my heart on anything specific, although I do quite like the Seat Ateca and VW Tiguan. I've been looking at Select Car Leasing and Nationwide Vehicle Contracts who have some interesting deals, but if ...

Re: C65 Trident GMT - Pepsi

The Pepsi looks pretty good to me and they will fly off the shelves, I'm sure.

But not for me - the Tudor GMT in my collection covers this base very well indeed - although I accept, of course, that's it's three times the price.

Still in the honeymoon period then, Paul? It won't last more than a few decades, I can assure you.

What a delicious watch that is!

Re: A "Star" has Fallen

So sorry to hear of this, Kip. It seems clear that Star was much loved and that she gave you all that love back, with interest, throughout her long and happy life.

A Star has risen.

Re: New arrival...(Avo will approve)

Most great watches have maybe four or five elements that could not be improved, however still fall short of perfection. There are very, very few watches that tick every single box with no improvements possible. This is one of the latter. Simply stunning, Paul - congratulations and wear it in the rud...

Re: If you want to buy a Rolex

Watchfinder prices have gone mental. 18 months ago I paid £5450 for a year-old 114060, just over list at the time but less than a new one today. Now their cheapest one is £7150!! :shock: I've just been looking at their latest email and they are selling a 3year old BLNR GMT at £10,650 which is over ...

Re: Steinhart MILITARY 47 ST1 pink gold Ltd. Edition

The execution is superb with the white hands and numerals offsetting the glorious pink dial. A modern work of art that will very likely become many a collector’s prized possession.

I’ll get me coat.

Re: If you want to buy a Rolex

My most recent rolex purchase was the hulk. All stickers were removed and prior to sale I had to agree to the warranty being held for 12 months. This is policy within Goldsmiths now but is not a Rolex directive. The dealer I bought my black sub from removed the stickers for me but did not hold on t...

Re: C8 Concorde - Born from dreams

In another life and as part of my engineering degree I worked for Rolls Royce at Filton, Bristol in the mid 70s - working on the RB593 engne, the Olympus, the engine that powered the magnificent Concorde - the most iconic civilian aircraft ever made. Whilst I was there they were stripping out one of...

Re: What are your watch plans for 2019?

I've got the GMT Master Root Beer on order but unlikely to secure one this year. If I buy a watch it will likely be a Genta designed/inspired piece - I have a yearning! Either a Nautilus (some chance!), AP Royal Oak (was offered one just before Christmas but dithered and lost it!), GP Laureato or a ...
