Well i have to say Rolex really stepped their game up with this watch...The case really wears much much bigger then what it is...Very deep and actually has weight to it...The only thing I didn't like was the bracelet...It tappers off too much and the result of the makes the watch very top heavy...I think Rolex will fix this...They really should...Also the wording inside the dial going around the bezel that says Original gas escape valve is not that noticeable in person for some reason...Great watch...great size...great weight but they need to do some work on the bracelet...

I love Rolex. I would like to buy their little brother Tudor. Unfortunately they aren't available in the USA. I know you can get them in Canada.

This one? Isn't 43mm way to small for you. You normally wear way bigger watches then that don't you?

Yes thats it...James I was very shocked when I tried it on..I guess because its very deep and it actually wears very big...I never would think it was less then 47mm..You have to check it out and see for yourself...Pictures do no justice for it.

Go to your Ad Ron and check it out...Its like night and day with the sub..This new watch has weight to it and stands tall like the Breitling. Pictures do no justice for this watch and looks much smaller on the computer.

The only downside to that watch is the bracelet. It tappers so much that it makes the case very top heavy...I dont get why they would make the bracelet like that but you will see it for your self and see what i am talking about. I also noticed a helium valve also on the side.

Not that I would buy another Rolex anyway, but Top heavy watches are a positive IMO! I like the feel of my SAS, Venom, SAN III's etc because they are a bit top heavy! This is one of the reasons I am so high on larger watches!

I agree with ya...I like them top heavy also as long as the bracelet can handle it. All of those watches you mentioned have beefy bracelets so it actually balances out quite nicely. The deep sea has such a tapered bracelet that it actually feels weird to me...maybe its just me but check it out and try it on and let me know what you think..
