I think that with its rotating bezel, red second hand and date, the Turn O Graph is not as dressy as the regular Datejust and it is too small to be a sport watch. Therefore it just did not appeal to many people. If it were a 41mm watch, I think it would have sold much better. As far as I can tell it never has been a very good seller since it introduction in 1950. But I do love my new 116264 with black dial that I bought last week.

Love them but 36mm is just a tad too small for me. Still see a few NOS at local ADs and they're beautiful! I truly hope a DJII TOG is eventually released.

Rose gold TOG is amazing. Pops more than the SS but has a subtlety lacking on the YG.

If they'd made it with the blue dial I'd sell pretty much all my (small) collection to buy one.

I agree.

yes the TOGs are awesome. There is no clicking when rotating the bezel it is smooth. it just rotates on the 4 bearings/springs. bidirectional.

also I recently replaced my bezel via RSC it was $1800 parts and labor. i just wish rolex would put a better black paint which doesn;t rub off so easily.
