a friend of mine bought this watch.
borrowed it for one day to take these pics
Nicolas, reading your reply on a similar post a few steps below I have to say I completely disagree.
While you said;
Too large and too short hands, too big round indexes, too big and too thick case. The numbers on the bezel are too small, and too fat.
For me this is by far the most beautifull modern Rolex (when I say modern, I mean since they started with those fat lugs like the 116610 sub) This is again a nice watch. lugs are not too fat, the case is well proportioned, hands are fat but I like them. 'Small numbers on the bezel' ??? Where ?? I think they have the perfect size.
Like said, it's the watch from a friend but If I had to pick one Rolex today .... it would definitely be this one.
The new subs ? I don't like them and I was afraid every ne watch would look 'fat' this explorer is imo perfect. I prefer 42 above 40 mm. 42 Is not too big and like said, imo it still looksgreat on the wrist.This message has been edited by DrStrong on 2011-10-27 23:31:12 This message has been edited by DrStrong on 2011-11-02 01:53:27
