  1. Hi! Yes it is :smile:
     
  2. Thanks, your rolex fits perfectly. I like seeing some of the bracelet on either side of your wrist rather than just the face of the watch.
     
  3. Business as usual. ;)

  4. Ooh...Is that a green face?:nuts:
     
  5. Hi!

    I'm not sure where/how you got that impression - but the face/dial is black. Sorry. :smile:

    Kind regards,
    Oliver

  6. Your photo showed a hint of green in upper left quadrant of dial..I’ve been looking for a green dial piece so I got excited:P This is the explorer or submariner? I don’t know the models very well. ah well..Like the black dial also! And the Punch. And the H ashtray. Looks like you were having a moment:flowers:

    Hey essiedub,

    I understand! :smile: Sorry to disappoint then. The watch pictured is my 16570 Explorer II.

    --

    I have seen an almost neon, (emerald) green colored Explorer II. It's a customized variant of the current model Explorer II (216570) and was customized by Bamford. -> https://www.modaoperandi.com/bamford-r15/explorer-ii-scuba-with-emerald-green-dial

    These typically don't receive much "love" in/around the watch collector world, up to facing down right "hate" especially from die-hard Rolex collectors. But they are out there & and can be a lot of fun.

    I personally fell in love with the orange one: https://www.modaoperandi.com/bamford-r15/explorer-ii-scuba-with-bwd-orange-dial

    I did consider buying one of the orange ones, but having had bad luck with customized/tinkered with watches I decided against it. I said it before, I consider Rolex to be one of the longest lasting mechanical time pieces, even holding up to harsh conditions if necessary, and I didn't get this feeling from these customized watches.

    Add that Rolex won't service these, so you need to have a "free" watch maker at hand (the one I trusted retired ...) I didn't risk it. Not with a 20k price tag. If these had a 2 - 4k mark up, I would probably have bought it. But not at an 11k markup.

    If you want green, there are options from Rolex directly (although not for the Explorer I/II) to "play it safe" :smile:

    Kind regards,
    Oliver

    And a question for those currently in the market for a new Rolex (from AD), steel sport models in particular, are you seeing a noticeable decrease in availability?

    I'm seeing hints, and have been getting notes "between the lines" that there are quite a few, very unhappy customers right now - at least in Germany. Wondering what the world wide situation is. (Please note, I'm talking about direct purchases from ADs only, not grey/secondary market)


    Kind regards,

  9. yes, I've been looking for a sub. My name is on several lists. I think Rolex just does that to increase demand. I'm not in any rush so doesn't matter to me. I was in one store and asked if they had any. The sales person said they are very hard to come by but are you ready today? I wasn't so said no but had a strong feeling if I said yes, she would have gotten one from the back.
