    Mirka Federer’s Day-Date. A one-off, apparently.

    I would not be surprised if Rolex does not say something to them even if it is a legitimate trade in.

    Since Iíve heard it from several AD they would have the authorization pulled for doing this. All other AD would be happy to report them. More potential watches for them.

    Every time I consolidate, the decisions get tougher as I truly want a few keepers this time around. That's what made me look at the Zenith again as I have been staring at that watch for years now, so there must be something to it after all this time.

    If I look at the SOTC, it is something like this now...

    VC - GADA and chronograph wrapped into one watch. It really does it all well IMO.

    Ball X-Lume - my bang around at the beach, more casual watch.

    Tourby pilot - Not sure where this fits as I've never collected "types" of watches, more "categories". I like it though and it gets good wrist time.

    So, of the options I'm looking at, this is where I see them fitting, or not ...

    OP 39 - I very much like stealth simplicity of this, but as I'm wearing the VC almost every day now, will it get wrist time as an alternate GADA?

    Explorer II - is it another sport watch, the big brother to the Ball and the myriad of dive watches I have? To me, even though I liked the idea of the OP39 as a GADA, I believe this would get more wrist time as an alternate to the VC.

    Zenith - could this be my "dressy" option? Now, that is filled by the Mido Commander, but I don't wear that often..however, I like the looks of this Zenith so much, I feel I'd wear it fairly frequently.

    So, there you go....Tribe was absolutely spot on, it may come down to the Zenith and Explorer II, but if I get the Zenith, I will still get the Rolex.
    Did you ditch the SMP? On the Zenith Iím kind of the same way with the ultra thin elite. Iíve had two of them but they donít stay. That still doesnít stop me from looking but it wonít stay. My GS is more universal.

    Another potentially nice Seiko ruined by their insistence to use those hands.
