    Remakes Sometimes Sing

    I hope this will be an entertaining thread.

    I know quite often we get off on tangents about this or that watch being a reinterpretation of some other watch. But the fact is that sometimes both the original and the remake are both quite nice and nicely done. So for this thread, I ask you to identify two things:
    1. A song that is a reinterpretation of an earlier song that you think is done well, and provide a link to the two versions
    2. A watch that you think is a well done reinterpretation of an earlier watch, and provide a pic (your own or someone else's) of the original and new versions.


    Song:


    Watch:
    • Rolex Milgaus
      • Early version - 1019 (although there are other references, I like this one)




    • Updated Version: the one shown has been enhanced with PVD/DLC by a third party, which I rather like, although the basic design sold by Rolex is quite nice too.



    All the best.

    I am always a different man; a reinterpretation of the man I was yesterday, and the day before, and all the days I have lived.

    In both cases the original is still the best... :)

    In this case, both the original and the re-make are excellent.
