Icon7 My first Rolex ... GMT Master II BLNR

Got my first Rolex on Friday. Took me a couple of years to decide which one I wanted and finally opted for the GMT Master II BLNR.

From all the forum posts I've read recently I think I've been very fortunate that I only waited about 6 weeks to get it. I love it!

I love mine! Enjoy, wear in good health, and accept that the first scratch will come : )

When I noticed the first scratch on the clasp of my stunning BLNR I didn't wear it for *two days*. (No, this is not something I'm proud of).

It's an unbelievably beautiful machine. I hope you have years of pleasure wearing it. I've had mine for six weeks and still find myself gazing at it, so happy to have it.

Congratulations! This one was also my very first Rolex. Purchased in March of this year. I was lucky that the Mayor's at my local mall had just one left in stock, and I immediately jumped on it. I have been back to that Mayor's multiple times over the last 6 months, and have yet to see them have it in stock. Looks like I was pretty lucky!
