The deepsea still has the rolex rehaut MLI, and the Ceramic bezel is almost impossible to damage, certainly not fragile.

ok couldn't see the "rehaut" in that shot because the glass is reflecting. but if I had a ceramic plate and an aluminium plate I know which one would smash first.

pros and cons with using ceramic but essentially it's going to be harder to replicate..

you'll enjoy this read…

Great read Dee. Those Sea Dwellers do seem to be over represented in the list of faults. btw I own a genuine Rolex Submariner that I bought before I was 30 so this link might be a good resource in the future.

MLI, do you have pics and details on your sub? Which year etc? Sorry if it's been done before.

Nice. Weighing up whether to go for new/recently new or a vintage (birth year or thereabouts). Why you go for the former?

MLI, did you go NATO strap because your wrist is too thin and girly for bracelet?

went for newish coz it was the only option I could really afford. It had to be a working sub date. Brand new wouldve been 20% more at the time, vintage a lot more.

I like NATO because it goes best with milspec wtaps gear. My bracelet with some links removed fits

Circa £2 million + and not a steel band in sight!

Urwerk, interesting brand, my wife did some press for them and I had a play with some of them, the base models were around the 35k mark.

Anyone insure their watch? Or covered under an existing policy

Mine are covered on the house insurance. Specifically named on the policy. Was a good job as I lost my Breitling last year and had to have it replaced.

Amazing complications, but that is one ugly watch.
