6062!
Annual calendar!!!
Come on Rolex, take a walk on the wild side. Look over the fence and wave to Patek.
The Sky-Dweller's great, but a 6062 it isn't.

●Question :
Do you know of any watchmaker brand that manufactured quartz movement watches in the 20th century that never made an audible ticking noise or humming sounds ?

●Answer : Rolex

●Why ?
The Return of a more Advanced Oysterquartz movement and the Gerald Genta design bracelet and casing

●Really ?
Yes. Limited Edition to 5000 timepieces World Wide : A Tribute to Rolex's Resourcefulness and Genius during the Quartz crises of the 70s

●Who would buy it ? Me

1655, but with secondary time zone capability. And a sapphire crystal.

OK...so maybe a completely different watch.

If you buy a brand new LN submariner today, you're getting a new watch that looks like an older style watch. With Rolex, it's actually tricky not to get a new watch that looks like an older style watch, because Rolex designs change so little.

If it helps, imagine that this thread is instead "What Rolex do you wish had never been discontinued?" -- it just stayed in production for years like all the other designs.

As a run of the mill watch. Definately a GMT SS either Pepsi or coke.
Think I would prefer a non ceramic as well but with the modern bracelet and glidelock.

+1 completely. The appeal of the iconic milsub as suggested in an earlier post would undermine the whole appeal.
