    New watch day.....

    Spent the last few days in Vegas with my wife and family and "the boss" ok'ed the purchase of a new watch.

    After looking at multiple watches, I finally decided on the Rolex GMT Master II BLNR.

    Never seen one with a whole hemisphere (180') of the bezel in different colours?

    It's a two colored bezel - black and blue.

    Cracking watch that. How does it compare to your Explorer 2?

    I prefer the BLNR in all aspects, except the dial. The polar dial on the 16570 is just lovely. The 216570, not so much.

    I think I should remove the Exp II from my sig btw, especially since my dad "borrowed" it.
