Some "abstracts" of my Rolex. Hope to get more interesting shots of my watch. Let me know if you like what u see.

This is taken with the Ricoh GR III in Black and White, Macro Setting.

It is pretty banged up as it is already more than 6 years old. :)

Thank you! I am surprised someone actually commented. :)

This is my daily basher..........I wear it for work and play. Just seems to go well with anything. :lovegrin:

Hey, moby.
I like the 'Handsome face' picture.
The one from the side gives a nice DOF feel.
In summary, a watch that one day I hope to own.
Thank you for sharing.

This watch has been discontinued 1 year ago. The new bigger and thicker sea dwellers are not so nice IMHO.

Hi TheChef, seems like u know your Rolex's well. U are right that this model has been discontinued, but still many brand new ones available.

I guess my dings and scratches make mine unique. ;)


PS: Consoling myself for all those scratches. :bsmilie:

Don't worry about those dings. You can easily send it to Rolex Centre and ask them to change the case, glass and bracelet, plus servicing of course.

there's a story behind the 10.10 setting, just like ( no more in fashion now ) the spinning cylinder sign with red-white-blue set above of those barber's shop in the 50s. It's a long forgotten history.

It is a nice watch and those are some nice pics of it.
I never knew Rolex has sporty watches.

Wahhhh... a Rolex as daily basher!!! :bigeyes:

Thank you limwhow!

Where can it still be found and how much does it cost?
Do they have a ladies version for this model?

But, you will be blocking the beautiful date window. The Sea Dweller is the only Rolex watch without the date magnifier which is my preference.
Yahhh... I don't like those date magnifier... very obiang and uncle-looking. ;p

The RRP is $8,751. I don't think you can find it new at the authorised dealers now. But, there are some brand new in box pieces around that are sold by second hand watch shops.

There is no lady's model for the SeaDweller. But, nowadays gents watch looks sexy when worn on a lady's wrist as well.

IMHO, the white Daytona (men size) is perfect on a lady's wrist.

Frankly speaking, it all depends on the watch owner. One school of thought is, since I had paid so much for it and this is Rolex's most rugged watch (even the crystal is thicker than all other Rolex watches to withstand water pressure), why not I put it to the test and get my money's worth? :think:
