OK, I have done business with alot of you one here at one time or another and all of you are great folks to chat and do business with. And some of you I have hinted at what I was up to. Now over the years of buying, selling, trading, and flipping watches I have lusted, and I mean LUSTED after just one watch, now alot of you may think I'm crazy or just plain stupid but I am 1000% happy with my new purchase, and I know it's not for everybody but I would just like to share my exctiement with all of my friends here on WF's. I sold everything I had in my watch box and it was almost full (except for one, and Randy knows which one I'm talking about) and I just went for it! I have a friend thats father-in-lawown's a AD here real close to me and I went and had a chat with him and BAM, here I am. My lust goes back so far when I was a kid and my parents had a matching set of Rolex President's, and at that point I told myself I was going to have one at some point. So I present to you "MY GRAIL" a brand new from an AD, my ROLEX SUBMARINER 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION. I'm sorry I'm making such a big deal about this but I am so damn excited!!! OK so here are some pics for you all. Let me know what you think!!!

Thanks everyone,

Cody

Very beautiful timepiece. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the 50th Anniversary also come with a black bezel as well? My good friend owns this very watch and I have held his and all I can say is that this particular model is absolutely fantastic. Enjoy that bad boy and thanks for sharing.

Nope, I wish it did come with the black bezel as well, that would be like two great watches in one. But I CAN buy a black bezel insert for it at 1/1000th the cost and have the best of both worlds. That is actually in the works as we speak! LOL, anyway, thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it a ton...

Congratulations on your grail. To me, a submariner, any submariner, is about as good as it gets and yours is just awesome! I have many watches on my "grail" list, but that one is on my "lottery" list! Enjoy that watch and wear it in the best of health.

. . . A very hearty congratulations Cody!!!! I know you gave up some tasty pieces to acquire that gem, and it looks to be well worth the sacrifice!!!!

I really like the green bezel myself, sets it apart from the pack. It has a very rich look to it . . .

You must feel like you just got the keys to the kingdom!!!!! Enjoy the rush my friend . . . . I'm feeling your joy from here . . . .Randy.

Cody, that is fantastic!! Congratulations to you my friend!! I also love the green bezel. Itr's different and green is my favorite color. I too am selling off my collection to get a grail so the idea isn't stupid to me at all!

Congrats, Cody!

I don't think you're crazy AT ALL! That's a very special watch! Can't beat a new Rolex on the wrist (especially a Rolex Sub).

Acquiring a grail is quite the thrill!


I am seriously considering, doing just what you've just done . . . ALL for ONE! :)

ENJOY that Rolex!

well played sir......I will jump off my roof as soon as I see someone respond that "Its way to small for me"......You made a wise choice sifting thru all of your collection to buy a real timeless collectible and valued piece....If you ever go to sell it you wont be bent over,,,likely will get what you paid or more.
