New Speedway Knockoff wartch

ok. .I should be writing other coherent words, but I am super excited about this new watch. It is the new ceramic Daytona 116515 with the heavier case. This watch was unveiled at Basel a few year back. Before the ceramic bezel, Daytona bezels suffered from scratching. This is ever apparent on my TT 116523, ceramic, as long as I don't break it, is an improvement. The case of this watch and the deployant clasp are 18K rose gold, or as Rolex like to call it, Everose.

My 116515 came on a Rolex alligator strap, but I just ordered a chocolate brown rubber strap from the folks at Rubber B. It will attach to the deployant buckle.

Of note, last week at Basel, Rolex let the world know that the Rolex Oysterflex rubber bracelet is now available for the 2017 Daytona. It appears that leather straps like my Alligator are discontinued.

The dial is Chocolate Brown with Arabic numbers.

Not much more to say other than it is stunning. . .

I'm not a Rolex guy, nor do care much about chronos. But this is a beautiful watch, and one I'd be proud to own. Well done.

DAMMIT, 'Topher! That watch is almost as beautiful as eddiea's avatar, but you can't strap a young, tight-bunned lady onto your wrist, can you? Well, maybe with the right type of rope...but I digress...that Rollie is one of the most beautiful watches I've ever seen, if not THE most beautiful! Like TB, I'm jealous, but it's the best kind of jealousy there is, because I'm very happy for you, my friend. What a thrill that must be to look down and see that watch on your wrist...as George Takei would say, "HO, MY!!"

FANG-DUCK!

HA'I KARATE!

THE OAT BRAN KING SUX!!

LUBE THE GOTE!!

AND SEW FOURTH!!!

Not a big fan of the Arabic numerals and the bracelet/strap end pieces, but I really do love that dial colour- it's absolutely stunning with the gilt printing.
