    Rolex "tool" watches

    Anyone seen these? Closest I've seen to a tool watch from Rolex. Yes I know this is the Sinn forum! Just thought you'd find it interesting.

    I think it looks cool.

    Cheers David

    At 7950 Bristish pounds or about $15,900 are you kidding me?

    The Rolex 116170 GMT IIc lists for $6750 new here in the USA. All they are doing is adding black CVD to the bezel and case. For that they charge $9150. We all should be in such a racket.

    Why does painting it black make it more of a 'tool' watch. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is already the ultimate tool watch and is the most proven diving watch under real extreme conditions.

    I love Sinn watches and have two. They may be just as good but they have not been where the SD has.

    Not only that but they put fixed lugs on the case and keep the bracelet which can no longer be used. That's another $1000 plus.

    OK, point taken.

    I agree the prices are just MAD. And Rolex won't service them either.

    -Just you wait. :)

    By the end of the year, I will be the happy owner of a U2, and I intend to bring it to work first chance I get.

    (I work for a company manufacturing subsea handling systems - I routinely get to lower stuff to the seabed. Would make for some great shots to fasten a U2 to some ROV or the other, then start shooting at target depth. :))

    i envy Michael Lynton, but not for what he wears (a Pro-Hunter maybe? LOL), its more for whom he talked to ...

    if i have money burning holes in my pocket left and right, sure, i will pay $15 for a can of chilled Coke, or pay $16k for a PVD-ed rolex seadweller (with some minimal customized work)

    That in itself doesn't make the SD better - Rolex have a bigger marketing budget and way more dealers than Sinn. I'd rather a tool watch was made of u-boat steel than having white gold on the dial. I'm not saying the SD is no good, but I'm sure it's not necessarily the best just because a lot of people use it.
