I totally agree but there are times I am in a situation when I want people to notice, that's the day i pull out the Rolex. I have also ha3 3 and i just feel weird not having one in my lineup. So now i have one and i appreciate it for what it is.
I own the chrono but I love them both. I think the GMT is thousands less so I'd probably buy that because they are both so stunning. I think you will find the blue dial not discounted much. The watch is as good a sportswatch as you can buy. The build quality is better than the AP and the nautilus. T
No doubt it looks as good or better than the 2nd gen and with the strap option, the Geneva hallmark and the display back. It's just a better watch than the RO. Most dont agree but if I pay 5k over list for a RO or I pay 5K under list for an overseas what's the better value. VC is just more watch.
