Congratulations - amazing watch. Never paid much attention to RM but have to say it makes a great statement on the wrist.

Now I know why you dislike the Nautilus 40th and it's embossed dial - just too extrovert compared to your taste in watches.

No one knows when they are going to receive RM's. RM ships when RM ships. Very frustrating, but hopefully by spring? Fingers crossed. I didn't know this one was incoming until phone rang.

This started '17 flush...starting a new. I don't like collecting but enjoying...you know that by now.

I'm poor, only two max RM's at a time for me.

Buy, enjoy, flush, refresh, repeat...just like cars

Hope your flush works out well for you...

My flush normally results in $$$ down the dumper..

Yeah...flush is already done and VERY happy with return.

Buy right, sell better

I love RM resale these days

Red is rocking and I'm loving it!

There is the holy trinity of watches and then there are the F U watches. That watch is the 900 pound gorilla in just about any room. What an awesome piece. Congrats!

[QUOTE=texex91;7281928]FedEx, when it absolutely, positively has be there…a day late…any who!

On to the fun stuff…seems like forever ago that I told my AD to move forward with two new RM’s.

I actually said on 035-02 that I would take EITHER TPT (red) or NTPT (black). NTPT is really not into channels yet (a few) and TPT is so darn limited I didn’t know which one I would get. Told him surprise me.

I was actually secretly hoping it was TPT red…and hot damn it was! RM is getting so hard to obtain, it’s almost silly, but some long timers still have a chance at the new stuff via our AD’s

WOW this one is just so layered in depth (it’s a must see in person watch). I love it! Never would I have bought a color so BOOM, but whoa, this one is SO worth it! I really miss my 035-01, but very glad to have an automatic version and some color pop! Will pair perfect with my other incoming…hopefully soon.

Black and a red Kevlar strap ordered for it already.

More pics to come when sun comes out as it’s completely cloudy right now…thank you for looking.

Big congrats Paul. The red case looks amazing with those lamination/grain details to the case edge.
I think it will look great on black Kevlar

Thank you Colin. I agree and strap is on order--but harder to get than the damn watch it seems
