Fantastic idea as all have said. But I wanted to add I recently joined another forum for collecting of something else - not watches- and I think I follow about 60% of what's being said due to this issue. TRF is way above the rest and inclusive.

I gree that this thread is was a great idea.

I've (mostly) lurked for 5+ years and this info would have been a huge benefit early on.

How about "BB" for the Tudor Black Bay?

Very helpful! Next we will need a list of reference numbers for Rolex (and other brands?)...

When I first joined, I was confused by the use of reference numbers. By now I've figured out what a 14060M is...and even a 14060, but many reference numbers not familiar to me and a quick reference like this thread would be great...

If anyone has the patience to put one together, that is...
