    This is an effect shown only in pictures; by seeing the watch in real life, with binocular vision, and in movement (so with light hitting the dial from different angles quite simultaneously, because you can move the watch, your head, or both), you can easily spot the logo (the brain create a tridimensional image of the watch with all the informations coming from the eyes while you are watching it).
    I don't know if I'm getting through.

    I put in a preorder for the blue on bracelet at Toppers and was told delivery could be made around the end of September.

Yet the hype, Rolex's marketing machine, etc, make Rolex the pinnacle of watches in the US. Thankfully, they can see all that. In the CH Rolex is a plenty. By the way, Swiss think top tier Watches are Patek Phillip, AP, VC, etc...

    I do own three Rolex Watches. Most likely I'll be selling two of them since they prices are so juicy and I will be making out like a bandit
    Yup. Most of us here know that but to the masses Rolex has convinced the world they are the watch to own. Remarkable marketing really.

    I tell people all the time it’s a mid tier luxury brand not anything close to the best.

    If I had that watch I would wear is backwards to stare at the movement all day. Who cares about the time :)

    I know. The movement is as mesmerizing as the dial! You’re not helping my wallet!

    Whelp, you've done it. You convinced me. As much as I love the modern look and futuristic design, I was worried it would limit strap options as the shiny ceramic-ness would look horrible with anything besides the bracelet and rubber; that it would look like a bad match with a vintage-y strap or leather because the watch head looks so new and shiny.

    BUT, you have proven me otherwise! To me this looks amazing on that strap. 10/10 have been convinced. Would love to see this watch on every strap possible!!!

    I've thought in the past like many others that the HE just needs to go, but once I saw a photoshop edit of one without the HE valve it just didn't seem right...

    I don't mind the look of the new conical shape. I feel like it does protrude a bit but if it was any more shallow it would be hard to grip. And even though it's asymmetrical I think if it was shorter it wouldn't compliment the main crown and would throw off the balance. No such thing as a perfect watch but overall don't mind the HE valve here.

    More pix please? Especially of that movement on the back. So safe to say it's another Ceramic/Sapphire Sandwich?
