And another old(ish) Rolex

Sep 27, 2023,12:03 PM

I’m on a roll with the old Rolex thing at the moment.  This one I rarely wear, and it’s the younger of the old Rolex that I own.  Yet it’s approaching 20 years.  

I need to resize the bracelet, my wrist is far skinnier than it was years ago.

Thanks. The Kermit green I love.

Especially under some early morning sunshine.

One of my favourites …

Definitely a keeper 👍

I debate this often.

No question a keeper, but I struggle with the fact that while I want to have it I don’t wear it. But when I do wear it, I love it! (I feel like I just said the same thing about another watch very recently).

I completely understand your predicament …

Part of the pleasure for me is reconnecting with old favourites I’ve owned for years and then deciding to give them a few days in the sunlight ;-)) ...  

Similar for me Jay.

Love the watch but wear it less than others. Why? It's valuable, crime in my area, a little bolder than other 5-digit steel models. How about you?

Yes, I need to do that.

Long wait.

I agree.

He asked if my Day Date was a women’s watch last time we got together. So if I can’t convince him based on the timeless beauty of a 36mm Day Date then there’s little hope.

Lol - I like 42 or bigger!

Looking good on you!

A nice splash of color!

I never noticed that!

I don't drink soda, so I never thought of that! I used to have this lime green anodized Carabiner on my backpack during my Boy Scouts camping days and it reminds me of that.

That is my next move exactly. 😂

I actually took it out but then realized I didn’t have enough time to set it and so grabbed the Kermit instead.

Lots of buying, over a long time, and no selling.

I’ve not, yet, sold a Rolex. Although one is kinda on the chopping block, but it doesn’t count as I’ve never worn it!
