    Right. I only pointed that out so he would know there was another 36mm option, that didn't house the cal 3000...just in case the review scared him off.


    Have a nice day.

    Looking for stolen DOXA Sub 300T reissue #444

    I've not seen the 39mm in the flesh, but I love my 114270, it's the model least instantly recognisable as a Rolex to most people which is a plus point for me, and on my 6.6" wrists doesn't look too small.

    I think it's the Rolex most likely to be bought by someone buying a quality watch rather than buying the brand name!

    both are very nice but the mark I for me as it can be picked up for very reasonable money used like mint boxed with papers quite a few out there.
    going to be hard pushed to get much of a deal on the new one.

    I like the new Explorer a lot. I looked at it a number of times, comparing it to my Aqua Terras. The black face Explorer and a white face AT would make a stunning pair. I'm not a big fan of Rolex but if I were to buy one it would likely be a Daytona. Still, I do like the Explorer and its fairly priced compared to the AT 8500.

    i absolutely love the styling of the ExpI, but i just can't live without a date function. and the ExpII looks too much like all the other sports models; sharing (essentially) the same dial, hands and case form factor. i hope Rolex finds it in their heart to release an explorer I with a date one day.

    I like it.......but it's too big for my wrist....I went w/ the 36mm explorer, I like the look on my wrist better.

    but surely then it would be esentally close to a sub? just without a graded bezel but I now what you mean I also struggle without a date which is why my daily wear is an oysterdate precision which is 2mm smaller than the old style explorer I and also sits perfect on my skinny wrists.
