    Right!?
    Been buying a lot lately, need control myself :rolleyes:
    I didn’t expect it to be in stock so the excitement almost got the better of me. Apparently it just came in and she had no idea when the next one might be delivered. Someone will get lucky to buy it at retail.

    I give you credit for your will power! :thumbsup:
    What did you think of the look of the 925 silver alloy in person? Was it the silver or the taupe dial that you found most appealing?

    I guess the silver is the main attraction but they paired it very well with the dial and bezel. The whole thing just works. A sort of restrained luxury. The dial looked lighter than the pictures I've seen, even in boutique lights.
    The case is fully brushed, even the chamfers. The brushed rose crown is a nice detail. Hard to compare against the black or blue one, it's just so different. It's not a vintage inspired sports watch but more of a sporty dress watch. The silver glow is really nice. Don't know how it will age but you can always bring it back with silver cleaner I suppose.

    Just found out this is discontinued, back down to 36mm only unfortunately as this has been on my wishlist since I tried one on a couple of years back. Im going to call my dealer tomorrow on the off chance, but suspect im out of luck

    The Explorer was made to be 36mm but I do think it's a bit silly that Rolex doesn't seem to offer the Explorer, OP or Datejust in a 39mm. 36mm or 41mm seems like there's a huge gap to me.

    I need to try on the 36mm, but think it will be too small given I typically wear 41-44mm day to day. I'm really annoyed about this, the 39mm was perfect!

    It will probably feel small to you, but you do get used to it. Aren't you wearing a 35mm watch in your profile photo, though?!

    No steel sports watches in stock at my local AD besides a yachtmaster. A lot of 31mm datejusts though :cautious:

    despite all the jokes about RM, i still think their engineering especially on the movement part is amazing.

    Yes, I almost never wear it because it's tiny. Which is a shame because I think it is one of the prettiest modern carreras

    If you have to choose one VC Overseas, will it be this 37mm ?

    Bovet releases 15 pieces of its GPHG-winning Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter Two.
    A 3D effect that's incredible. Not for me tho. Priced at CHF 355,000 "Brainfreeze" :rolleyes:
