Trio of Submariner, Daytona and GMT Master 2

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-05:51
Finally I have completed the steel sports watch trio I wanted. Submariner “Kermit” ceramic, Daytona “Panda”, GMT Master 2 “Pepsi”. I was too late to get the Hulk before it was discontinued but am very grateful to have received the new Kermit earlier this ...  

Congrats again Robin

How does the new green sub wear on the wrist ? Does it wear slightly larger versus the hulk or even the gmt you own?

I think they wear about the same

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-06:13
The Daytona wears a bit smaller. Ceramic 41mm Kermit, 40mm sub-c of Pepsi wear around the same to me Thanks again !

Love the middle one.

Probably my fave too :) [nt]

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-06:13

Terrific trio. [nt]

Thanks again M4 ! [nt]

Interesting to see you succumb to the hype....😬

 By: Clueless_Collector : September 12th, 2020-06:07
Your collection taste changed from MB, JLC to Rolex? Great trio, covered 3 good functions.👍🏻

Thank you mate!

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-06:19
Yes sick and tired of the Richemonts, Swatch, LVMH brands with their LEs after LEs (yet less demand and poor value each time lol). Rolex doesn’t need any LEs yet have such huge demand . Clearly they are doing it right and I respect that ! The difference b... 

I’m with you, struck all the chords mate...

 By: Clueless_Collector : September 12th, 2020-07:08
Similar with me, I used to think “everyone” or almost too many, Singapore “uncles” , “A-longs”, wear Rolex and missing out on the fine prestigious brands of traditional watch making with nice movements etc....😂 My first Rolex is the Cellini Prince, becaus... 

Lol can’t deny the uncles

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:21
Still having their Rolexes :p And there are many fakes in Singapore haha :p Cheers Robin

In complete agreement with you!

 By: ZSHSZ : September 12th, 2020-07:24
I went trough the same circle, same as you got tired of all the worries of high horology( I still admire them, but no need to own them). Rolex=throw it on the wrist and go... Nice trio, congratulations!

Nice small collection although I prefer the predecessors of each

 By: penfriend : September 12th, 2020-07:31
However, to comment on Rolex "doing it right" - some ten years ago I was still able to collect subs and daytonas at my AD with 25-30% off MRSP. Since then they have not really changed their business policy but market has gone crazy. I don't wear my Rolex ... 

I do not mean to offend or doubt you here but I don't recall rolex daytonas and subs ever getting 25-30% off MSRP.

 By: masy7 : September 12th, 2020-07:49
Yes, market has shifted in 10 year, the current trend is clearly still steel sports models. But Rolex, AP, Patek are not the only brands with these steel sports offerings, JLC has them, VC has always had them, now lange also has 1. But those who have clea... 

well, in my town we have three ADs with full offering in one street

 By: penfriend : September 12th, 2020-08:10
Maybe through this competition ten years (and 15/20 years) ago I was able to walk in, pick a certain sub or Daytona and get that kind of percentage off MSRP. Not today anymore but at that time yes. I think some here will remember that e.g. the last Kermit... 

Rolex is below these HH brands in movement finishing for sure

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:26
Especially when compared to indie brands like Dufour, KV, Laurent Ferrier, Hajime Asaoka (I’m still loving my new Tsunami!) , as well as below lange, PP, VC (at least those with geneva seals)

Good point !

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:24
There is no superior or inferior groups of watches and we have the right to love any watches Well said.

Thank you! Yes I still admire and wear my haute horology dress watches

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:23
Just wearing them lesser these days Cheers Robin

Indeed my friend

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:27
Their privately owned nature has some strengths when it comes to long term strategies instead of the pressures of delivering short term shareholder value

Hope your dream come true soon :)

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-06:20
Keep at it and hopefully you can get the others too

Very nice

 By: jamesp07 : September 12th, 2020-06:14
Thats all you need.

Indeed !

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-06:21
I can close shop to my collection now Thank you !

:) thank you [nt]

Lol ! I am just lucky :) [nt]

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:27

Another holy trinity

 By: biw : September 12th, 2020-06:44
Nice variance in looks/style. You have it covered nicely!

Thanks mate !! [nt]

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:28

Ok will reply you :) [nt]

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:28

Wonderful trio

 By: Lankysudanese : September 12th, 2020-08:37
I’ve been through the rolexes, and am moving into the speedmaster and haute horologie domains, but fully recognize that I’ll eventually circle back to Rolex. Enjoy yours in good health Btw: those PCLs on the daytona look pristine. Hope that that not becau... 

Thank you ! Ah all 3 of these watches

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:29
Are fairly new and worn in rotation. The Kermit is a few days old, the Daytona less than 6 months and the Pepsi I recall I got it just before Christmas last year . Over time I am sure they will get some love marks lol

Thank you Nico !

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:30
I never expected to be so fast too lol

Hahahaha! [nt]

Congrats on this awesome trio bro!

 By: singingbee : September 12th, 2020-09:57
Would love to own any of them! Especially the Daytona.

Thanks bro ! Yes the Daytona

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:30
Is my fav amongst the 3


 By: Alfihar : September 12th, 2020-10:23
... although I prefer the 116500 with a black dial, as well as the submariner ... I love black dials. Maybe that's why I like Rolex's professionals SS. There is only the YM that I like with its rhodium dial and again I think I would have taken it with a b... 

I love black dials too

Speaking of AirKing , here is a pic I took of mine recently . ...  

Nice AK,

 By: Alfihar : September 12th, 2020-23:25
An offbeat and modern style watch for a professional Rolex. It has often been disparaged but I like this watch. Mine is coming soon ... Best

Congrats in advance !

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-23:52
The AK has quite a cult following here Let us know when yours is here and we can do a roll call !

Yep [nt]

 By: Alfihar : September 12th, 2020-23:56

Thank you so much !

 By: jrwong23 : September 12th, 2020-17:33
Yes that’s the most important

Very cool and playful trio 👍 [nt]
