1st post..... Hello. Rejoining the Rolex family after trip to Grand Cayman.

I've been lurking awhile and decided to sign up since I recently rejoined the Rolex family. My 1st Rolex was a 2002 Gold/SS DJ with a Roman/Slate Dial - Fluted bezel bought new from an AD in San Diego in 2004. I ended up selling that watch in 2009 and have looked forward to another Rolex ever since.

Well I've just returned from a recent Caribbean cruise on which one stop was Grand Cayman, BWI. Of course how could one not stop in to Kirk Freeport (I believe one of the larger ADs around) while in town? After a rather interesting experience I ended walking out with a new 2013 SS Daytona - Black Dial and I couldn't be happier.

I've enjoyed reading everyone's contributions here and I'm looking forward to participating.

Great store there! Love grand cayman and have been over a dozen times. Great choice with the black-as-the-bottom-of-the-ocean Daytona!

Welcome, friend.

Here are a couple of pics of my 1st watch - the DJ that I sold back in 10' - I had been thinking that I sold it in 2009.

I'll get some pics of the new Daytona that I'll post in a separate thread
