I don’t see root beer. I see weak chocolate milk. Perhaps Yoohoo.

Its not a proper root beer! That has a brown and yellow or all brown bezel with a brown sunburst dial. This is an espresso.

This one surprised me the most today. I do agree it’s not the proper root beer and the espresso name is pretty good lol. Bravo

Revolution watches posted a video from the Basel Rolex booth (there's a thread here somewhere) and that TT version looks stellar!

Can you imagine how awful a yellow Cerachrome bezel would look? I don't think the colors of the aluminum bezels will ever be properly replicated in ceramic.

On another poster someone nick-named it the “Espresso”. I like it.

Yeah, I hear that. It wouldn’t work, even if they could match the colours.

The colors are playing tricks with my eyes, sometimes I see the brown but sometimes I'm seeing red and black.
