I was really hoping for a dome crystal on the ND Sub, it does look fantastic though.

The blue YM is just stunning.


I am just happy they did not butcher the SS & TT Daytona with a ceramic bezel. Lets just say that rainbow bezel is not for everyone, but neither was the leopard crap. There will be a select few sold, so it shouldnt be a big deal.

looks cleaner without the date

but both would work for me

agreed on the no-date....

not a YM, but, i think it would be great as a GMTIIc (date or no date)....just swap the bezel for GMTIIc, keep the red hand and text, and keep the brushed bracelet....= a winner!

Save for the updated ND Submariner, I dislike the rest.

I am sorry but I am shocked at the haters on here. The SkyDweller not only looks amazing but the functions it has are so unique that I would think this forum would be going nuts to own one already.
Congrats to Rolex for creating another gem of a product!

These 'blingy' jewelled and leopard watches, to me suggest that Rolex are assuming a fair proportion of it's market are wealthy 'Chavs' (UK term, meaning people with no class at all). Where are the ceramic Daytonas on bracelets or two tone etc??

The blue Yachtmaster is stunning. I sort of like the flat bezel on the Date Just II as well. Otherwise, not particularly enthused about any of the new watches.

Thanks for the pix Puffy!

Guys any idea if the sky dweller caliber 9001 has a ball bearing rotor like the 4130 or a pivot rotor like 3135?

The ND Sub is the watch I have been waiting for. I know I am in the small minority who don't like the cyclops, don't need a date, and prefer brushed steel bands. Love the update!

Blue Yachtmaster is very nice.

I guess it was inevitable with the demise of the oyster cased submariners.
