    pictures of a 'classic': 114060

    time for more content
    ---------------------------------------------
    too vanilla? too 'mainstream'?
    i don't care. i love it.









    ceramic bezel is a winner, i quite like the no AR personally.









    rehaut engraving probably a bit of an overkill with the maxi dial...o well









    actually my 1st rolex...i don't mind the cyclops..but the balance of this won me over.
    never really noticed the wider lugs..i think it fits the whole beefier look tbh.


















    the new bracelet/clasp is a solid win. nobody does 'fit' like rolex imo
    40mm is just right..caseback feels a bit higher to me...but still a very 'slim' tool watch









    blue lume actually..but kinda green here.


    Enjoy!

    Love it. It's a future classic. A modern take on the classic sub with some super nice upgrades. Probably the best

    If there's room in your budget, there's room in a collection, IMO. The two are quite different in terms of character, I think. Yours is the classic, under the radar, "goes with anything" Sub, balanced and pure. The Hulk, while still not flashy, is less of an every day watch (unless you're not bothered as much by color matching), and makes a bolder statement. I don't believe it's too loud, since the green dial varies a lot depending upon lighting--at some angles it looks almost black, at others, it's a gorgeous deep green, or something in between. And of course the bracelet is sublime.

    If there weren't so many others I'm interested in, I'd definitely consider having both.

    FWIW, the cyclops bothers me not at all now that I have it, even though it was a tiny worry for me before I bought it. And my aging eyes appreciate the magnification.
