I strongly dislike the soda and comic book nicknames. All of them. Seems juvenile to me, but some people don’t understand reference numbers I guess.

I don't like the nickname at all. I don't currently own any watches on a jubilee band, but I don't consider it feminine versus the "masculine" oyster band.

I like the nicknames and i already call the jubilee BLNR as Batgirl .

It is more easy to say Batman , Pepsi , Hulk , Rootbeer or Kermit then BLNR , BLRO , something LV or BLA BLA ... what ever...

Said this before, batgirl is sexy like the new watch. Plus Batman would not wear jubilee.

Is it more childish to call it a nickname or to be bothered by others doing so?

To close to call but I promise not to start a poll top find out.

The influencers have spoken: it's Batgirl. What 100 people on TRF think about it does not matter.

Please donít call it a Batgirl.

Please don't call any ROLEX a Batgirl...well, maybe a 26-31mm DJ w/ a blue dial. It's a silly name for a nice watch.

If anything, call it The Old Bruce Wayne as the Jubilee is an unwritten requirement for moving into a florida retirement community :)

Very well said Padi. I too unfortunately wonder the same thing every time I log in. Not only childish but in this case inflammatory nonsense.

Since when is a Jubilee bracelet exclusive to girls or women? Dumbest moniker I have ever heard

Why not just Batman on jubilee?


Kinda like in the Ď80s & early Ď90s there was the (Porsche):

Turbo and Slant-nosed Turbo. Both incredible, but one was just ... more!

The ďBatmanĒ and ďThe Batman on jubilee.Ē

All I know is that I prefer the look of the oyster to the Jubilee on the BLNR. As for the nicknames, Iím not really a fan of any of them.

It is still BLNR, Blue/Black or Batman, if that is what you prefer. I don't think it is any different because of the bracelet change. The Pepsi or BLRO is the same whether on jubilee or oyster--we just use the reference number or the denote the material (ss vs white gold). "Batgirl" seems to have a connotation of disdain. As someone who has owned both (previously on oyster and currently on jubilee) I think that they are both beautiful watches. Neither is more masculine nor feminine than the other--just a different look. Remember, the GMT on jubilee has historic roots. Nobody ever thought it looked like a "girl's watch" before.

Applying a feminine name to a menís bracelet makes no sense whatsoever. Calling a 40mm menís professional watch ďgirlĒ anything is patently ridiculous.

Stupid is as stupid does. Time to retire the stupid batgirl nickname.
