Incoming... Again

I decided to correct a mistake I made about a year and a half ago. I hardly ever sell a watch once I buy it. But I was lusting after a gold sub and let my SkyD go to help fund the purchase. I really liked the watch just wanted to lessen the burn of the gold sub. But then I sat back watching SkyD’s go up in price and become harder to get. So I decided to bite the bullet and bring one back into the collection. Such a fun watch! Probably the coolest movement Rolex makes.

The blue dial steals all the hype. And it’s a really beautiful dial. But I think for the “discount” you pay for going without a blue dial the black really is great choice. It’s got a semi-sunburst that really shines in the right lighting.

Gorgeous watch. Blue dial is nice. But black dial is best. White is great as dress watch. Can't wait to have mine in my hands.

To me, at least in that light, it has a grey metallic look to the dial. Stunning.

I actually think the Sunburst Black dial is better looking than the blue

What dial did you have last time?

I really dig the black. The blue is beautiful, no doubt, but black has a little more attitude, IMHO.

This is probably going to be my choice. Well done!
