It is almost as if I wanted that my relation with the watch that I am wearing would be a secret because wearing a Rolex gives me so much satisfaction on so many different levels.
Well said could not agree more! Congrats on a beautiful watch!

Congrats, I agree with you that it's definitely an incredible watch...I myself recently picked one up, haven't stopped staring at it since.

great review and thanks for your effort. I'm looking towards the same model and one thing is still top of mind. Please don't kill me for this, but i'm going to ask me anyway. Whats your practical experience with business long sleeve shirts and wear due to the bezel?

regards,
René

Beautiful watch! I myself keep debating on the date or no date. Hopefully, by the time I'm done saving I'll have made up my mind.

Hi René,

I buy my shirts from different stores. So some have tight fitting long sleeve and others have looser fittings. With the tight fitting, the sleeve does not cover the watch at all. While the loose fitting sleeve, the watch is usually positioned underneath the sleeve. As far as my experience goes, no problem so far with the bezel or the sleeve. Hope this helps. Cheers

I can relate! March, 2016, I purchased the first Rolex I ever laid my hands on, a brother of yours... 14060, from 1991. Love your story and your watch!
