To each his Everest or ocean or horse!

Francis Chichester wore a Rolex oyster perpetual round the world. Members of the 1953 Everest expedition wore Rolex oyster perpetuals.

They served as the forerunners to the explorer and the submariner. And the rest is history.

Nice watch; is it 34 or 36mm. No horse shots for you, no mountains or frozen tundra or even current ocean shots with mine. Here it is any way. My Yin to your Yang.

I understand, but you need to try it. It's a revelation...

When I bought her today I tried on the the new Air King- too thick.....

And the new Sea Dweller; too much bling!

Hi name is Ollie. Registered as a sports horse. Part warm blood.

He was my wife's- this is a picture of her riding him. And me riding him after she died.
