Nothing exotic, just my old 14060 Sub...

I bought it new in February 1996, at a Rolex AD where I live…just walked in and bought it, those were the days! Itīs my only Rolex, and has been my daily watch for 23+ years now. I only take it off when I go to bed. Been serviced twice by my Rolex AD, after 13 years and again just last month. Iīve never allowed it to be polished, or for the dial and hands to be fiddled with. The crystal and bezel are the originals. Okay, the tritium lume is all but dead now, but I donīt care. I love this watch as it is, and it keeps great time. Been all around the world with me...

That's great! It will be 6 years for me with my Sub and I hope to have it for a very very long time!

Thanks for sharing it with us

And Iīm sure you will! I smashed up so many cheaper watches before I got my Sub, and in my experience (23+ years now) I can only say that itīs built like a tank! Taken everything I've thrown at it. I have it pressure-tested at my AD once a year, and always make sure the crown is screwed in! Of course, ANY watch can be smashed, but the Sub takes an awful lot of beating...

My Tudor 75090 (black face/bezel) says, "hello."
