Why Rolex insists on "ICING" out the Lugs and Crown guard, I will never understand.

You want to Baguette the Bezel? Fine.

But the lug treatment never leaves me with a "OH NICE I NEED THAT" feel.

Someone put up a Rainbow Daytona they made from a Normal Gold daytona, and it looked better than the Rolex Stock config, because of the lack of Iced Lugs.

I don't think you're the target demographic, just saying...

I don't like it. Maybe only an iced bezel, but in this state i don't give 130k for it.

From the video: “For the rare times this watch requires discretion...”

Sort of says it all.

We have long passed the tool watch era to the boutique toney watches.....
Hans Wilsdorf would be underwhelmed.

I'd look ridiculous wearing that. I'll take a BLRO with meteorite dial, thank you.

This is one of those pieces they take you to the back room, show you how special it is and then when you don't buy it they don't call you again. LOL

Manny Pacquiao wore one during a recent endorsement shoot for one of my clients:




I thought it was a cute watch. But personally not my cup of tea.
