Suggest Me a Rolex

Suggest Me a Rolex

Postby tiktok » April 12th 2019, 9:28pm

I've decided to make the plunge with GS pricing going North Pole. I want to pay under $7k and, I asked Smells and he steered me to stuff over budget. I'm a skinny old hipster, love 39mm and don't do well with bezels, too much reaching under my steel work bench is my latest theory, so what should I get?

My favorites are AK, Milgauss and Datejust.

Datejust. Classic without the bulk.

The Exploder Deux scratched my itch. You'll have to go used to get one under seven grand, though.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Yeah, either of the 2 Explorers(used) or a Sub(used) if you can afford it..while a fan of the DJ, I just don't think it is a practical wear working around a steel work bench..good luck!!..

I'd lean toward a Datejust. It's the closest real equivalent to much of what GS sells. They are priced roughly around a similar GS. Or at least they were until recently.

GS seems intent on making the Datejust a "value proposition" which is something I dreaded but did not predict.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.

Oyster Perp 39mm. Still mostly available at list prices from dealers, as they haven't started using them to fuck buyers in the ass by shifting them out the back door to the grey for a tasty kickback.

They have in London, but that's a given, considering all the filthy money that's sloshing around there...
