Last night me fiancée was freeing up storage space on my work phone (its an iPhone and I hate that thing - that's why I have no clue how it works ) and she saw I had some pics of the new SS Pepsi on it. She asked me if I liked it, to which I replied that I already signed up for it/put my name on 2 lists. Her comment: "Why? It looks absolutely cheap." I said: "It doesn't, wait till you see it in person." While I usually don't care too much what other people think, this made ME think. I have to say that I've never seen the WG version, which has the same bezel, in person.

So what do you think? Is my fiancée right?

She prefers dressy and classic looking pieces like Longines Master Collection, JLC Master Date, MUT Moon, IWC Portofino, Calatrava (yeah, in your dreams). I like them too but I prefer sports watches.
My wife agrees. She feels the same about the BLNR, BLRO, and LVc, cheap, ugly and "toyish." Everyone has their own taste, I suppose. Nothing wrong with that

I love the look of the white gold Pepsi and to me the ss version looks just as great.
As far as my wife's knowledge for watches goes, all the ss Rolex with black bezels are the same watch. Can't remember how often she pointed to a watch in a window and said, hey they have your watch! And it always was a Sub date or no date, a DSSD or even GMT.
Lately it doesn't happen anymore because of the lack of ss sportmodels at ad's.

Watches are like shoes, if you like the fit and the look buy it, you will be the one paying for it and wearing it!!

I can only think one does put his name up on the list to make profit if he has not seen the wg version.

You could have tried the wg version everywhere since it doesnt sell well. I dont like the colours at all. But hey, if you get the call for the daytona and you say ill take the Pepsi instead that would be very nice of you :)

Are there a lot of people who are on the ''list'' that have never seen the wg version in person?

I'm on the list but haven't seen the WG version in person. When this watch was announced I knew the wait list would be long so I got on it knowing I could decide later.

If and when I get the call I'll go look at it. If it works for me I might buy it. If the Jubilee works against me as I'm somewhat expecting or the bezel colors aren't to my liking then I'll pass.

Not everyone is a profiteer but I suspect this watch will see just as many flippers as the Daytona.

Prima facie it can seem like that, and I know many who dismiss the playful yellows and oranges of Breitling and Omega too, but we need some diversity from black on black, and it certainly isn't like the ladies don't have playful Loubs and Birks either or wish they did.

Very good point. The hot pink Chanel bags, yellow python purses, etc.

But I can't stand my brother in law's huge orange seamaster Omega. I can't ! Why?! Jk

Yes, it's the cheapest looking Rolex, IMO. With the bezel colors it stands out, not in a good way. It is definitely the most unrefined looking piece Rolex makes. Unfortunately they didn't get the colors right.
