    I didn't say that Rolex don't cater to the market for bigger watches. @Dream Killer did.

    I only said Rolex don't follow trends (and despite that, still sell most watches) 😉.

    Bye the way, the largest Rolex is the Sea Dweller Deep Sea (44mm).
    Largest Omega: Railmaster (49.2 mm)
    EDIT: Ploprof (55mm)

    Maybe Rolex knows when to stop making larger watches, where others keep growing 😁

    Oh crap, you were not joking. My bad.

    No my issue is 100% with you and your stuck up attitude. I love Rolex and the brand in general. And most Rolex owners I know are humble and genuine, despite the social status a Rolex may or may not give.

    You on the other hand play into every unfavorable Rolex stereotype there is. A walking cliche.





    If you have an issue with elitism, I suggest you shouldn't be wearing a Rolex or posting in a Rolex forum. You can't un-do 50 years of Rolex marketing to a specific type of customer segment just because you think your view of the brand is more wholesome.

    In case you're wondering:

    bou·le·var·dier
    ˌbo͝oləvärˈdir,ˌbo͝oləvärˈdyā/ noun

    a wealthy, fashionable socialite.

    Your issue is with Rolex, not its owners.[/QUOTE]

    Why don't Rolex make the GMTII in 42mm?

    Ask Rolex 😉.

    My guess: they sell enough of them at the current 40mm size, they don't need to make it larger.

    By about 2030 Rolex will realise that 42mm is the new 40mm.

    Bigger isn't always better..

    Had a PO XL (45.5mm). Got tired of the size and weight, sold it.

    Currently at 39mm Rolex and 41mm Tudor.

    Considering an Explorer II Polar (42mm), I think that's the new max size for me.

    Wouldn't that model suit your preferences (42mm, second time zone)..?

    In addition: I see quite a lot of ladies sporting Submariners, GMT IIs, Daytonas and the likes. I guess 38-40mm is the new "unisex size range".
    Keeping the models at their current size, Rolex caters to both male and female..

    No, your issue is 100% with Rolex because it apparently is a brand that is 100% against the very things you value. Your struggle is wearing the wrong brand, that's for you to come to grips with, not the rest of us. You may know 10 Rolex owners who are "humble and genuine", but Rolex sells 1,000,000 units a year, there are about 30,000,000 Rolexes in circulation, and as the #1 prestige status symbol brand in the world it's you and your 10 friends who are the outliers, trust me.

    As for your comments on elitism, it's quite elitist of you to believe you are better than others because you live such a wholesome lifestyle. You act just like a stereotypical Rolex owner in that regard, you're sooo much better than everyone else, right? And why? Because you wear a Rolex for the right reasons? Says who? How about you stop pushing your values on others? I mean, isn't that what the stereotypical Rolex snob is oh-so guilty of?

    Either get a nice Timex and be a true man of your principles or understand that a) not everyone who owns a Rolex acts like you do and b) that Rolex themselves market to the very stereotype you detest.

    Tried the explorer on. A little underwhelmed. Only tried the polar one on. I know they don't make them anymore but I love the Pepsi bezel which is why I'm about to own one in the Seiko turtle variant.

    Don't mind the batman bezel. However I already have one of those in a modded Seiko which is dear to me seeing that a close mate made it. My watches have to be all a little different which is why I haven't gone for the sub or sea dweller as it looks too similar to my 42mm PO 2500D.

    Agree that the 45.5mm is too big. My wrist is bang on 7 inches.

    The Tudor Black Bay Blue is nice. Wears a lot bigger than its 41mm and has the most comfortable bracelet I have tried.

    7" wrist here too.
    PO XL looks a bit big on the wrist.


    From a few yards away:

    Not too big..
