    Most impressive watch at the show, and it's not even close. Again, JMO.

    Love the Ingenieur but wow IWC really wants to go upscale with that price . . . . The Rolex dress piece in white gold is also looking really good but the wait for one may be longer than what little time I may have

    I have no insight into what disappointed Patek buyers buy instead of a Patek, but would guess that they might turn their attention to something different, rather than a substitute.

    I just look at the Zenith and like it. With a spare £6,700 in my pocket, I might be hightailing it to the Zenith shop, with very little thought of Patek in my mind (or none, probably). If I had another £1,200 spare, I might buy a Defy Skyline instead, if I found I liked it better. Either way, I’d come out of the shop pleased as punch with my new watch.

    I gather "superlative chronometer" is Rolex's term for watches that exceed official chronometer standards. A Google search suggests they've been using this term since the 1950's.

    Rolex doesn't need any aesthetic or marketing advice from me, but I personally find that term a bit awkward and clunky.

    I agree fully, but luckily itís such a small font on the dial that my old eyes donít really see it. 🥸

    Yes.
    Shame. There was a white gold Cellini I rather liked after trying it on in Hawaii. And it was a cool $9,000 less than this one, as I recall. 23K is asking a lot for Rolex for me, even if it is a precious metal. I mean, that’s Royal Oak money, isn’t it?

    This is £200 less than a daytona. Sad times for non-loaded watch fans. First mechanical, hi beat. Name:  Screenshot_20230328_174751_YouTube.jpg

    There was this one. Love the colour, and the watch may be Rolexís finest.

    Umm, not unless you want a women's version...

    I wouldnít say no to one of these, but it wouldnít make much sense next to my blue Black Bay 58.

    Thereís something slightly odd about a dive watch without its bezel on a jazzy bracelet - and thatís why I like it.

    Nicely offbeat, and a nice range of sizes - 31/36/39/41. 36 or 39 for me.
