I was hesitant about purchasing the DSSD because it seemed so over sized. I was originally going with the White Milgauss because I like unique and GMT-II and Submariners seem too common.

But I just got one and it's my first Rolex so I can officially say I am part of the club. :-)

HI Armin! Didn't know you're here, too! That's GREAT!

Yeah, I have a love/hate relationship with the DSSD... these days, I want one badly again!

Here's a write up I made about the differences between the Mark I, II and III DSSD dials:

First few in production

Love mine. Proud ownder of a Mark I dial. I would rather live under a bridge with it than in a mansion without it.

Anybody know when the first DSSD's came out? Mine is dated october 2008 M Serial. Could it be that mine is one of the first ones to be produced? Anybody have a DSSD that is dated before mine?
