Tt bluesey a year and then some later

Figured I would write a review of my
116613LB. Iíve had for about a year and a half now. Not that itís been a long time since my purchase but I still canít seem to take my eyes off of it, from the different color schemes when the sun hits the dial, the way the bezel reflects the light, to the way the bracelet looks after a cleaning, itís been the best purchase Iíve ever made. I also own a 214270 and as much as I love that watch because it was my first watch I bought in celebration of my first child being born it doesnít get much wrist time. The bluesey Has been through a lot from my second child being born to promotions at work, my favorite hockey team winning the Stanley cup, multiple adventures, my favorite probably being crab hunting at Santa Rosa beach. Some things Iíve noticed is still many people donít notice it or they decide not to say anything either way I donít care. I didnít buy the watch to be flashy I bought it in celebration of my second child being born and to hopefully pass down generation to generation. Itís comfortable to wear, the glide lock is an awesome feature especially living in the Midwest in the United States, hot summers cold winters. My lowest score ever in a round of gold. The first week I got it I happened to get a decent scratch on it while working and was devastated. Now there are many more and they are all memories of why I wear it everyday. It is my grail watch and Iím glad I made the decision to pull the trigger on it. I couldnít be happier and I love reading the forum everyday of people getting the timepiece they have been searching for. Life is short if your on the fence about getting the watch you want, trust me just do it you wonít regret it. With everything going on in this world itís nice we can share our thoughts on our timepieces, hereís to many more years of happiness and adventures!

Its probably the best looking Rolex produces.

This is the model that got me addicted to Rolex and made me fall in love with the brand in the first place. My first true Rolex love. LOL

Couldn't agree with you more! Love my TT Bluesey too! And as some women find scars sexy, I find the scratches on my watches produces a unique timepiece specific to me. There's history behind those blemishes that only you can feel.

This was my first Rolex too....well, technically my second one since the first I inherited from my father. I had no special reason to buy it other than just wanting one. My dad's Rolex was in the safe for over 20 years, almost forgotten until I stumbled across it. I did a bunch of research on it, got it serviced and looking good again. During this time of research and consulting with Rolex dealers, I saw the solid gold version of this watch. The SA let me hold it and OMG....I fell in love! I figured I could probably never afford or justify buying the full gold version so I took a look at the Rolex website and tooled around with Datejusts, figuring I'd start with a more affordable piece. After I configured one the way I thought I wanted it to look, the price was within a few hundred dollars of the TT Bluesy. And so the obsession began. I watched every YouTube video on this watch, many numerous times. I worked more, went out less, stopped spending money on girls and once I got close to having the money I needed I started contacting the AD's again that I had talked to earlier. Well, when my quest began, this watch was still available for custom order, 2 to 3 month wait, no big deal. Just as I called to try to get one, it was no longer on the order list, now it was all "first come first serve". I spent a Saturday cold calling all the AD's in my area. One of them came through and got one in just one week later....and the rest is history. I got it in August and usually only wore it when going out. Since I was new to the game, despite my best efforts of being careful with the watch and only using good microfibers to obsessively clean it, I managed to install a bunch of hairline scratches into the gold. Covid came around and I really never had a good reason to wear that watch, so I didn't....but I got tired of my Tag Heuer daily (bracelet is presidential style and stretched pretty badly which annoyed me) so I decided I want another Rolex to wear every day. Lucky for me, as soon as the AD I got the Bluesy from opened up again, they had the exact DJ41 that I wanted. While purchasing it, I noticed the Rootbeer my SA was wearing, so now, I am waiting on it. My cleaning methods have much improved, and since I know the Rootbeer really won't get all that much wrist time, I should be able to keep it rather pristine.

Sorry for the long story, I type pretty fast and just couldn't stop....lol

Right there with ya, brother. Also here in the midwest, I bought my 116613LB earlier this summer from a private seller (a fellow poster on here, as a matter of fact), and I am still absolutely in love with this thing. In my opinion, easily the best-looking watch in Rolex's catalogue at the moment. And I've actually gotten a fair amt of compliments on it (not that i'm seeking out compliments on it lol), the latest being a few weeks back when I went to go pick up a pizza from a local pizza place, the teenage girl at the desk says, "wow, that is a beautiful watch!" when i went to sign my receipt. and I'm already 100% sure that i will never part with this bad boy, no matter what.
