Tried it and learned that my right wrist is marginally larger than the left. In any case, I feel the need for a white face EXP II to complement my black GMT II - I'll go looking tomorrow.

I also wear my watches in right wrist. I’ve found it useful during aircraft operations.

This watch is becoming more interesting. Interestingly not caught up in the insane pricing model of other models. Has this watch been well adopted?

It's decided -- my next Rolex will be the white Exp II.

But damn that cyclops, though...

So much prefer the 114060, yo

Nice pics! Anyone with both the new one and the recently-departed version have side-by-side comparison shots? I'm curious how much larger the new one actually wears and if it also feels chunkier than its predecessor (like the Sub Date). Also, would love to see some detailed clasp shots (both open and shut)!
