    Tudor + $ is more likely.

    I donít like polished center links on any Rolex, including on the GMT and particularly PCLís on the Milgauss which I see as a tool watch, and is a big part of why I prefer the Air-King over the Milgauss.

    Jason, search within yourself...use the Force....and if you honestly believe your incredible collection of SS and PM Rolexís is solely attributable to that Frog diver....and not at all to the need to show off...then you put the ĎDí in denial.




    BrOoO from Downunder
    I disagree about equating expensive watches with the need to show off. I couldnít count the number of posts saying that few ďciviliansĒ (non WIS) ever notice what watch you are wearing. If you buy into a brand thinking itís got the level of quality that you find acceptable and for the price that you find reasonable, then I think many become loyal consumers. Many persons that I know are extremely fixated on certain car companies, Apple products, etc, without thinking of status.

    Or as my new yuppie friend found out, going to the Nassau AD is not gonna get you a Pepsi or DaytonaC either.

    Just to yank his chain a bit, i asked him whether he'd like a nice DJ 41. He made a face...
