    Lightbulb My.First.Rolex!

    After a lot of convincing, the wife half-heartedly agreed for me to purchase my first Rolex!
    Visited an AD couple weeks ago to try on some models to see which sang to me.

    - Everyone said Explorer I is perfect first Rolex but it just didnt feel 'enough' for me.


    - I liked how the Explorer II looked with it's large orange GMT hand, but felt a little bulky at 42mm.


    - A friend has the black dial Milgauss with green crystal so I thought I'd love the blue dial version, but it's too left field for my first Rolex.


    - Left the Sub to try on last as I've always thought it was the most common Rolex, but the damn thing looks so good!



    It's often said that the heart wants what it wants, so with that, please welcome my first (and possibly only) purchase of 2018 and my first Rolex!
    Ceramic Submariner No Date ref. 114060

    Awesome watch - no date is the best Sub, IMO. Congrats!

    Congrats. I made the same choice as you with my first and only Rolex. That Explorer I looks pretty good too...

    Congrats. Popped my cherry a couple of years ago, but not with the model I truly wanted. I recently rectified that. Hopefully you'll have that watch for a very long time!

    Was tempted to get the Explorer I since it looked pretty good and was cheaper but I would've eventually regretted it.
