Which model Rolex would you like to see in PM, that isn't currently

I was looking through Chrono24 and came across this PVD watch and it got me thinking. In a perfect world I would love to see a 214278 and a 114068, YG versions of my two favorite SS watches.

What reference would you like to see? And in what metal?

It would look better with YG markers and hands

I tend to think the other way round.

I know there are those who really love the precious metals, but I'm not one.

I'd like to see more models in steel with more dial choices, like say, for the Daytona.

I guess one could wish that all models had a precious metal reference, but I'm quite certain if Rolex thought they'd sell, they have them on the market already.

platinum Sub, duh

with some sort of dark blue dial with ice blue markers, pretty much a pipe dream.

I know a few female pilots that would like a 36mm sized case with the GMT hand.

They should make the 114060 in platinum (maybe with an ice blue dial) since it was the OG

Yellow gold Hulk would be the absolute nuts. Would probably become the fastest moving PM piece in history.

Ok and an 114060 in platinum would be insane.

Would certainly match the marketing materials and box.

Speaking of the yellow gold hulk, this is from one of the photoshop threads.

That would be interesting, especially a BLNR variant with the Blue accents and Bezel. That would be stunning, like a Bluesy!

Cheers,

So many good ideas!

I truly believe the YG Hulk would be the fastest moving PM piece in not only Rolex history but horology history...
