The OG yellow stella is amazing, and that looks great too.

36mm ?

I had a real issue over the new Rolex sizes, The idea of a 41mm OP seems a tad vulgar, but the reviews I've read says you cant notice the jump in size…

Lovely watch. I feel a little thorn between yellow and the tiffany blue.

Have a bit random question to you watch enthusiasts.
Was wanting the new „batgirl“ since release and finally got fed up and paid the grey market premium for my 40th (next week). Got it unworn with box, papers and stickers. Didn’t buy it as an investment (would have gone for the pepsi version otherwise).
I won’t touch it till next week. However a friend of mind tries to convince me to keep the stickers on and put it in the safe as an future investment (despite mark up). This kinda took away the fun for as I was planning on wearing it. What are your thoughts?

My thoughts are - if you like it - fuck that. Wear it.

Definitely wear it. It will retain its value anyway. Life is too short to keep it in a safe.

This ones a 41mm but I’m waiting on a 36mm green for my wife. The case doesn’t feel 41mm but the dial does seem to make it feel bigger, probably the colour.

Bad pic but took this earlier, can notice the difference vs the milgauss which I think is 40mm:

Is there reasoning behind it?

I’ve read a lot of people commenting on that since they were announced but it’s never really bothered me. It was the same when the AP 15400 was announced to replace the 15300 but people quickly forgot about it.

It wouldn't stop me buying one but I'd rather them not have them, seems overcomplicating it for no reason. Unless there is one!?

yes, better visibility when it's dark. it may look like a dress watch (apart from the dial color) but it's still a tool watch after all

Is it a tool watch though? It’s a time only Rolex…

Always thought a sub and a suit looked weird
