My first Rolex (with pics) 126234

Hi guys. I finally purchased my first Rolex DJ 36 last week from Paul Duggan. Excellent overall experience working with them and highly recommend.

I am totally in love with the watch. I debated between the super case datejust 116234 or a TT early 16234 model. Will eventually add a TT to the collection.

I understand men now prefer the 41mm, but this 36 is literally a perfect fit for a 7.2” wrist. Many would recommend 41mm DJ for my size wrist, but it doesn’t look good IMO. This 36mm is such a classic. Love the way the color changes depending on lighting.

Cheers,

Belated congratulations and nice pictures

My wife has the exact same dial in a 34mm case. The dial really is quite stunning

Doesn't really matter what others think. You like it and pay for it so you can decide what watch and size you want on your wrist. Case close. Congrats and enjoy. Looks good on you.
