Excellent! A good and handsome choice plus a departure from the omni present Submariner. And still unmistakable Rolex. Wear it often and in good health!

You picked up both watches??

I'm usually kind of Meh, on Rolexes, but the Rose Gold two tone is stunning, one of the finest looking watches Rolex ever made.

What's nuts is if you go on the Gray market, like Jomashop, you can pick that two tone for about $6K less then the stainless steel "Hulk"

Just the Rolex. Thanks Chaz!
Bought a his & hers Omega SMP bond in 1997.

Jomashop sells the Yachtmaster at $ 13k plus ....

Got a better price in Europe than that...at a Rolex AD...

Btw, The pricing on the new Omega Seamaster was also great over in Paris.
Normal US pricing is about $ 7k, over there it was around $ 4400. In US dollar. 3900 to 4k in Euro....and no tax! Time to go and have a vacation.... lol

Cheers!

Why anybody in their right mind would purchase a Hulk for 18K over the beauty you have is beyond me, they have to be nuts!

Paris, France

Is a good place to go watch shopping!
You can barter and bargain shop and stores are willing to give and offer better pricing from other competitors...

No tax on purchase....VAT Tax free for Americans...

Cheers
