    Turning 40 has its perks! Got to pick up my Tudor Black Bay 58 last night from the local AD. All I'd owned prior to this were Seikos and G-Shocks, which I still love, but the Tudor is (obviously) on a whole 'nother level. Just the feel of the steel is different different, let alone the precision of the machining, polish, how the clasp operates, the action of the bezel, etc being beyond what I thought it would be. Jumping from a 3Hz to 4Hz movement is also a big difference. Sorry for the huge pictures.






    Great photos, makes me want. Congrats!

    Nice watch, but IMO Coke always > Pepsi.

    @Swaye why did Rolex quit making the Coke GMT?

    I don’t disagree with you, it’s a Coke originally and I prefer the Coke. But the beauty of the removable inserts is I can change it back to a Coke whenever I want.

    @Swaye why did Rolex quit making the Coke GMT?

    Well they started with the Pepsi 60+ years ago, then brought out a Coke 20+ years after the Pepsi, then added an all black after that, then added the black and blue less than 10 years ago. And discontinued the Coke and all black. Just Rolex being Rolex. It will be back at some future point you can bet on it.

    I was trying to purchase some apple pen tips from the Apple store but the line was so ridiculously long I decided to abandon that plan and wander into the nearby local AD.

    As expected there wasn't a single watch in any of the cases and I was sorta awkwardly standing in the middle of the room without purpose when the store manager came up to me to see what I wanted.

    I jokingly ask if they had any ss sport models available and he laughs, tells me no, and we start casually talking about watches.

    I'm dropping enough knowledge to let him know I'm a serious collector when he hits me with a "if you could get one, what would it be?"

    I say I'm sure when you ask that the answer you receive from every douche bag is"sub", but I recently bought a 44mm Panerai and liked the look of a bigger watch so the DeepSea intrigued me.

    He tells me it's spoken for but he has one in the back if I'd like to try it on.

    Here we go.

    Next thing I know I'm at the table going over all the details and bullshiting for 45 minutes. I know it's impossible to walk in and out and get a SS sportsmodel without previous purchasing history, so I thank him and offer up my number to consider me in the future.

    He says, "That's cool and all but I'm just going to offer you this one here".

    Through a combination of luck, Doog charm, and nerd watch knowledge I cracked the code.

    Big, ostentatious, classic sub style, yet not as commonplace. The DeepSea is a monster I plan to keep for the long haul:

    At AD shot


    Standard boogaloo pocket shot


    Standard Lume shot


    Standard I-5, 90mph, hooker, blow, while posting shot

    You left out the act of fellatio on the AD.

    Anytime you buy a Rolex from an AD it’s implied.

    Got this a month ago or so in a private sale. Forgot to post it. Not much to say about it. It's a blue 5711. Epic.
