    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I must say, I really like that watch! Hadn’t heard of Ball before but that’s impressive.
    I’ve just recently gotten back into watches. My 1985 Day Date here. A bit small by today’s standards but certainly a classic. [quoted image][quoted image]

    I love Daydate s . I had the bark version 1986. Sold it few months ago to get this minty complete jumbo!

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Wow! Very nice rolex. What type is that one? Looks incredible (and vastly larger than any of mine).

    Thank you! It Is the Rolex 16628 (40MM) aka jumbo . It was the biggest Rolex in that time. Now everything is like 40/41MM

    Problem with gold is that you can’t wear it everyday not only as it’s gold but also as it’s 2021.. mad world

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I wear my Day-Date close to everyday. What’s the reason gold is not a daily wear watch where you live?

    Thanks for data. Yea, that watch looks incredible. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for one. Very sporty!

    These days they cut your hand off for a quick money grab. We had in the netherlands the Rolex gang that robbed people in plain daylight of your Rolex. It’s crazy. With the media etc everybody now knows what a high end Rolex/patek etc is. That’s why I’m sometimes cautious to wear the watch.

    Quoted from Mike_J:

    The 16628 is the Yacht Master. When it was first launched it had a stainless bracelet, platinum bezel and silver dial. I bought one for my wife, but she rarely wears it. The yellow gold that AMSNL posted is quite striking and would be my choice today.
    Here’s a photo of one online because I have no idea where my wife’s is - [quoted image]

    Yes it’s was my first of the yachtmaster/Rolex series that I bought and I loved the platinum bezel with the special finish.

    The nice thing about these older yachtmaster series that it was availble in 34/36/40 mm . So there was More choice to the wrist. But they are sleepers and discontinued . I think these will
    Go sky high ,like the rest in a matter of years

    I still have it

    Hehe thanx. I really like that watch, problem is they don’t hold value well. Same with Cartier or Hublot . As soon as you put them on it’s an instant 2k loss when you need it to move fast. Rolex is easy cash grab all day long when needed!

    #1998 76 days ago

    My wrists are not that big so I like the old 36MM sizes. When I have a 40/41mm on and get back to a 36MM it’s small haha. 36MM is an elegant and verry nice size to wear.

    I do believe the market today is crazy. Why would you spend 15-18k that like 5-7k over retail for a normal steel Rolex when you can have a good solid gold Daydate for like 14 or a Rolex yachtmaster solid gold for like 22-24 . In times where money is worth nothing, why would anyone invest there money in to nothing. In like the last 2000 years gold has always been the no1 trade/sell thing . In a time of war or other shit in the world I know my gold Rolex or any other brand will get food on the table. What are you going to do with a 904L type steel watch hahaha

    Quoted from mbaumle:

    Taking the Black Bay 58 into the city. Usually more of a fall season watch for me, but it’s been cooler lately so I had to take it out of the box. I really love the snowflake hands.
    [quoted image]

    That’s a cool watch! I also have the blue palagos
