by the way, never replace that bezel... the missing pearl maybe but only with new old stock and only have someone qualified to replace it. you would ruin everything if you put a new bezel on this rig !!

Citizen Eco drive for me. Not too fancy but nice. I feel lost without a watch. I want an older Rolex just can't spend the money. Family is far from fancy so no hand me downs.

Great looking "Eco" !! I've had a few in my time

Nothing wrong with wanting a vintage Rolex. Which one would you buy, if possible?? Just curious more than anything.. Plenty of vintage watches out there..

I got rid of watches a long time ago. I seem to tear them up. I now tell time by the sun......kind of like Crocodile Dundee.

Long story...but I had another Sub that was given to me. in 2007 when times were tough, I had to sell it to put food on the table! I started my own firm shortly thereafter and told myself if I could stroke a check for Rolex, without worrying too much about it, I would get another one. Last year, business was good so I gave myself a "Christmas Bonus"!

Heck Ya !! I know the feeling.. I funded most of my sons summer baseball when he was a kid by pealing off my watch to cover cost for his summer travels.. It was worth it, no doubt..
