I can agree. I got my BLRO in January as well, and I find myself wearing more than my Sub. You have a beautiful watch! Enjoy!

Congrats OP on a very handsome watch, and thanks for the review. Glad to hear you say good things about the jubilee. I’ve always wondered if the jubilee is tough people with hairy arms/wrists - does the bracelet not catch hair?

I have the CHNR and love the GMT so much it’s become my go to watch instead of the SubC. Now waiting for the BLNR.

PS: the nickname thing is getting annoying. A Batman is a Batman whether on oyster or jubilee. Infantile to try and label it something else.

Your #1 is what has me torn, I really would like to add a Batman, but I am fan of an oyster band, but then I made the mistake of trying on my friends with a jubilee. And the jubilee to my surprise was noticeably more comfortable than my oyster on my sub.I still would like to add a batman but I am hoping the look of the jubilee grows on me when the time comes to purchase 1.

Just picked mine up. Beautiful watch. Curious... does the calibre 3285 wind when screwing in the crown? I noticed mine doing so and struck me as odd.

Great review. Personally, I'm still a oyster band fan, but the jubilee is growing on me!

Great Watch

Enjoyed your review - spot on. I love my Batman - the jubilee bracelet is extremely comfortable. Watch is beautiful in the sunlight.

Great review! Thanks. I was worried that jubilee bracelet would look too feminine compared to the oyster bracelet. Guess not!

I love it; in fact, wearing it now. Funny how many get hung up with names. If you like it buy it, if not, then don't.

Beautiful piece . Not a Batman tho.. it’s a Batgirl!! Do you guys have any masculinity problem ?? What is the problem with calling it with a girl name? That makes you feminine? Is that what defines you? The nickname of the watch? Call it rightly: BATGIRL! It’s a batgirl and it doesn’t make you a sissy. What makes you look feminine is the lack of confidence!!!

Follow these steps closely:

1) go to Rolex.com

2) click in the search bar

3) type “Batman”

4) tell me what you see...

This should be called the Bruce Wayne. It's classy enough for Bruce yet has the features for Batman.
