New Ceramic Sub has landed

well i broke my ankle on the same day this watch turned up, so not a great start and this has slowed me up in getting these pics posted

watch is stunning!!!


edit: quick question, i see the green sub with the G serial, mine has a F serial - anyone seen that before?

No idea about the serial numbers. I think rolex is pumping out whatever the left over serials beofre go onto random fulltime....

ive just had 2 weeks in the states that cost the earth, and im already holding a fair few watches - when i placed the order they were quoting me next year but it obviously came through quicker... it is very similar to my GMT IIc and Sub so as much as i'd love to keep it i think moving it on is the best option right now.

Are there 6 numbers following the F in your s/n?

Congrats on a FINE selection.
Hope your ankle heals quickly.

Congratulations on your new purchase, but you shouldn't have rushed about so much with all the excitement

Seriously, sorry to hear of your injury and I hope you're soon on the mend.

Great photos

Congrats on your new purchase, and I wish youŽll enjoy so much and in good health.

IŽm considering the purchase of a C-Sub myself, which just have arrived to my Country a few weeks ago. As a matter of fact, my favorite AD is receiving the black and green dial versions next week, and I made an appointment to see it on my wrist, and decide which color to get.

An interesting evolution from the original Submariner a model which I love, and own since more than 40 years.

Enjoy and thanks for sharing!! Very cordially, Abel.
