I would like to see Rolex stop making watches in PM because it just promotes a gaudy image.

Did a thread on this a few nights ago. TT as well as all 18 yellow gold hulk. TT would be as stunning as bluesy.

What reference would you like to see? And in what metal?
None, I'm a steel purist when it comes to Rolex. Best value, and best value retention, and the same movement when all is said and done.

I would want to see three different models:

1) 39mm Explorer 1. Being one of the traditionally dressier sports models due to the lack of the date function, I think PCL's and both everose and yellow gold models would really make this watch more popular. I'd also like to see different dial colors with it as well to distinguish it from the stainless steel version. Don't think it would look great in two tone however.

2) Rose gold sub. I saw a photoshop of this on one of the threads here and fell in love with it. I think this would work in two tone as well with a brown dial and maybe a brown bezel as well.

3) Two tone hulk. I thought I saw one a few years back and had to do a double take only to realize it was just a Bluesy. I think a two tone hulk would be awesome though, but I'd want them to darken the green a bit on the bezel honestly.

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.

Thank the Lord that the Submariner and the Explorer have only been made in stainless steel, why corrupt perfection.

You're not corrupting anything as long as the historic reference is also available.
