Icon5 If you could change just one thing....

So if you had the ear of some rolex higher ups, and they wanted suggestions, what if anything would you change or improve? I myself would like the option of a blue face/bezel submariner in SS.

I would have more dial options (choices) and bring back the freedom to swap, or buy new dials in the event you grow tired of your current dial. Rolex now limits what few dial swap options one has.

A rethinking of their Prince/Cellini lines. I'd love to have a dressy, leather-banded Rolex, but those just don't do it for me.

I would ask for more freedom to switch dials, bracelets, etc. I have no problem with them not allowing parts to gray market dealers but I cannot stand the dictatorial attitude I encounter every time I ask for something as simple as switching to a NATO strap. I basically got laughed at when I inquired about buying a glidelock clasp for my SD. "you can have one if you buy a new model that has glidelock" Thank you very much Einstein.

That would even be higher on my list than an improved clasp on the Yacht Master. I imagine the improved clasp will happen fairly soon, however it probably will take longer for the scratch proof bezel to show up on the Daytona.

go back to red hand and red lettering on the GMT --and thus insanely drive up the value of the current green handed and lettered GMTs!

A MUCH better relationship with collectors; bracelet swaps, dial swaps, proper vintage restorations, etc...

SS Blue Sub!
TT Day-Date!
MAYBE date on Daytona!
MUCH lower prices!

It would be cold day in hell before Rolex start to be more reasonable priced, but it would be nice, right?

Standard 39mm for the datejust & day-date. 41mm is just too big.
Bring back the Tudor line to the U.S.
