Good Question by a member for a change over at wussuei. Someone should point him to some sources for the ETA he is looking for. We have some links here on the forum.

Rolex thread
http://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/rolex-all-4613321.html


Rolex has a following but from what I read there, at least some realize and comment that Rolex is a mass produced watch. A few years ago that would have gotten you banned at certain forums.

I am not a member at Wussie but it would be fun to start a Doxa vs rolex thread and see the results. :twisted:

Someone should start a "Why no orange dialed Submariner" thread.

I can't comment except for the vast gulf in interests, and watchmaking is of no interest to the "WIS" population who only know how to spend money and talk about it. A bit like me presenting myself as an automotive authority when all I've done is lease myself a fucking VW diesel.

IME dial thickness is typically 0.4-0.45mm. What can actually be accommodated whilst still allowing the hour hand to be mounted on the hour wheel without fouling the dial will depend on the hand height - the standard hand height is option (2) per that thread, but if the higher hand heights are specified then you could use a thicker dial (0.6-0.8mm or more) and still mount the hour hand correctly. But then the second hand tube might hit the crystal, so...

TMMLH.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Fair enough it's pretty specialised stuff, but just look at the difference!

The same obsessive numpty has now asked what age is the best age to own a Rooolaaacks. Oh God for fuck's sake grow up. I need to stop browsing that stupid fucking forum in case I get the urge to register, say exactly that, get instantly banned and waste 10 minutes of my life...

Good thing you don't log on to WIT (WatchInTyme.com). Your head would explode. I honestly can't even log on to the front page; it's like stopping at a big building in Queens to use the phone and realizing you're at Creedmoor Psychiatric Center.
