Lol, thanks for the reminder. Last year same deal - I forgot & a half-year later, figured it was "too late". But not this time - I just sent in my pledge.

I have no experience with the regular 40mm Submariner Dates but what I did notice is trying to include the 126600's date in a wristshot is damn hard work...

Both awesome references I love my SD43 but have no intentions of parting with my 16600

I'd love to see you and the other SD43 owners post their favorite wristshot* here please


*Speaking of which, I like this one I took at the beginning of the month; I usually try to avoid getting the smartphone's reflection but in this case, I used it to block the direct sunlight, just to get "a good look" at the date window...

Great review !

This here is my first contribution to Rolex Forums.

I had just bought the 126600, after looking for 116600 for months. The same reasons mentioned, 43mm growth and the cyclops swayed me away from it. I really wanted a modern Rolex dive watch, but hated the bulky lugs on the Submariner. So, SD4K was my target. But when I saw SD50 in front of me, I had to take it and give it a shot with the bigger size. Superb quality, easy to read, sturdy like nothing else. But, I wasnt so convinced by the size, to big on my wrist, and the ceramic bezel was wider thus giving it more surface area to shine and sparkle. Something I try to avoid (not that there’s anything wrong with that). But that only cemented my love for modern Rolex watches and their quality, and now I’m trying to sell my SD50 to get my hands on a SD4K.

The red “SEA DWELLER” on the dial..? Oh dear god it’s just fantastic to look at.
