Rolex Deepsea James Cameron 136660 - D Blue

I just wanted to pass on a fun story. Iím a younger gent just getting into the watch obsession. Iíve heard all the terrible nonsense of working with ADís but always admired the Rolex brand. I just got back from a quick deployment in the military and saved up a good penny.

Took a trip to my AD and as expected the wait list for most models is over a year. I expressed I had no interest in two tone and looking for a Rolex that speaks in conversations. THREE WEEKS later, I got a call!

Never would I think that Iíd wear such a large watch but in person the watch is absolutely stunning. Thereís something thatís so quirky and unique in the Rolex lineup that has drawn me to it. Absolutely stunning. Anyway maybe the stars aligned to get a call so quickly but all around amazing experience.
