Went for the medium in the end, anniversary present from the Mrs.
Wanted a dress watch so have ordered a grey alligator strap for it as well.

My only gripe is that Rolex have micro adjusters which are massively useful and allows a perfect fit, where as this is just a link out/link in sizing only.
Leather strap will get round this anyway.

Really nice mate, seem to hold their value as well. Had a look at watchfinder and watchmaster a while back and they were asking for not far under retail.

In two minds about selling my sub when resale is this high. Anyone bought the Tissot prx powermatic 80? Seems like a good beater for 600 quid.

Cheers lads, was just as well as she bought it and got it engraved by them without me having a clue, so wouldn’t have been able to swap the size anyway!

Got a couple of quotes for my 16800 from traders, highest I was offered was £5.5k, will probably go private to get more.
If yours is a newer sub though the prices are decent, and can’t see them coming down.

Picked up a Rolex Sub 126610LN as a Xmas gift to myself. Shocked at the resale prices and its very tempting to move it on already.

Really wanted a Blue Skydweller but my AD suggested I go with this first while I wait.

Picked up a 111 for next to nothing. So many bargains to be had these days with all the Rolex hype. Crazy.

Love the look of Panerais but find them comically large, unless you’re as big as sly.

The 38mm they now do looks perfect to me though

The 111 is 44mm which doesn’t even wear that big I find. My wrist is just under 8 inches so even my 47mm Radiomir looks ok.

Definitely not for everyone though.

Love that fudge. Really suits your wrist. Cool

The 38mm one looks great too on a slenderer wrist.

Always liked panerai. Quality watches.
