New sea dweller

I don’t really want to write a long review about this 2020 sea dweller piece. I am absolutely stunned at how beautiful it is and how well it wears on my wrist. I have a hulk sub and then a blue two-tone sub... I had always thought a sea dweller would be too large for my wrist but as soon as I put it on I now realize this will likely be the best watch I own.. I’d post pics but they don’t format well on here.

The new sea dweller is a stunner. It’s my new sub replacement until I perhaps get a black dial sub someday. I just cannot believe how comfortably-fitting this is on the (my) wrist.

As soon as I tried it on, I knew it was to be.... the AD hadn’t set it out yet and I realize I’m fortunate to have this piece. I have a hulk, newer pepsi, bluesy, deep blue, a Royal oak offshore,1970 air king, a patek 5196, a reverso, a vacheron gold piece, and I keep coming back to the sea dweller. It’s so simple and so comfortable. It suits me....

I adore the cyclops on the new sea dweller. Great piece. Really a stunner. Very happy. I bought this nťe sea dweller at msrp a few weeks ago and just cannot believe how well it sits on my wrist.

Your thought were my thoughts the first time I tried the SD on my wrist. It was like it or nothing. A month later I was at the boutique collecting my own.
It says hello. Waiting for pictures.

My wrist is small. Likely 6.1”. I’m going to remove the dive clasp. I can’t stop wearing the piece and I have many. I love its similarity to a black sub but it’s not. And since I need reading glasses, I love the cyclops. I don’t see myself wearing a different watch anytime soon. I used to like the two tone blue sub best but this new sea dweller is easily my fav. It fits like a glove. The lugs are weird because they grip your wrist. The red text makes it stand out. I knew it was great within 3 seconds of trying it on. I’d post a pic but they’re a pain to format.

I have a hulk, two tone blue, deep blue, gmt pepsi, Patek 5196, pam88, reverso, air king, AP royal oak offshore, explorer 36mm, and the sea dweller by far surpasses them all,for,simplicity and wrist fit.

But that being said, the bluesy still speaks to me. As does the hulk. I never wear the AP either. It’s nice but I’m a Rolex guy. The 5196 is beautiful but is my dress watch. Again, I’m a Rolex guy.

To me, the sea dweller is a deep sea without the ridiculous thickness. It’s also a sub with more legibility.

I saw the two tone model of this piece today. I almost grabbed it. It’s even perfect in two tone. The lettering is in yellow gold.

The reason this piece works is because of its simplicity.. I don’t need corroboration from anybody but the funny thing is I talked to a gentleman driving a Gorgeous vehicle ((RR) on Saturday. The reason I spoke to him is because he had a new sea dweller watch on his wrist.. he pulled into a restaurant carry out parking spot.. in any case we both talked about watches for a while... I have pateks, AP, ETC.. I continually find myself wearing this new piece all the time. And he commented the same . The authorized dealer from whom I bought this also explained some of their best customers (myself included maybe) have loads of pieces but in everyday life, revert to the sea dweller as their daily wearer. Not daily beater. The watch with which they’re most comfortable. This watch has the legibility of a deep sea but the cyclops window makes it readable like a sub... the lugs make,it wear smaller than sized. It grips the wrist.

I’m seriously contemplating buying the two tone version this coming weekend. I’m hoping someone else grabs it. In any case this watch is definitely a sleeper. There’s literally nothing objectionable about this piece. It’s a home run from Rolex. I had the opportunity to also buy a new sub and did not. I already have two old subs anyway. The 2020 sea dweller is the best Rolex piece I own.

I was lucky to find a SD 43 a couple of weeks ago. It is the largest Rolex that I have....I was definitely concerned about the size....but it really wears much like a 40 mm to me.....it feels similar to my BLNR except the SD 43 actually fits more snugly and has a thicker profile.... While not quite as heavy as a platinum model this watch is heavy enough and feels just right. The bracelet is the best I have seen on any watch. The watch details are beautiful...especially the bezel and dial.... I like most of us on TRF have multiple Rolex watches but the SD 43 will be my daily watch.

To my eye it looks as though the rehaut on the SD43 is...

tapered or angled inwards toward the edge of the dial. In other words, it's wider up by the crystal than it is down by the dial. Imho, that makes the dial look a bit smaller than it needs to be. Not a deal-breaker, it's only just noticeable.
