    Having that paperwork is so cool. Its in rather good condition considering its age. My father first entered the workforce in 1979. He said he made a whopping M$300 a month. A post in 2014 which analyses the retail price growth of a Submariner over time. https://www.ablogtowatch.com/rolex-prices-past-60-years-revealing-analysis/ Would be nice to be able to somehow measure relative affordability of a Rolex model over time. Would probably need inflation data, retail prices, and average wage data over time.

    I wore the only chronograph I own earlier today to a barbeque. The Heuer branded “Calibre 11”. It claims to be a 39mm case, but I feel it wears much bigger due to the square case and its hefty 15mm thickness. The original design of the case was 38mm, and this modern day version is said to be quite close to the 70s original model 1133B. The biggest visual differences are that the chrono pushers have been redesigned to a squarish shape, and the red chrono hand is thinner. I really wish they had stayed true to the original on the chrono seconds hand. However I do love the matte colouring of the dial - no bling at all. I find myself timing everything and anything since I got my hands on this piece.

    I forsee stopping by Wing Wah becoming a monthly ritual for you.

    Im with you - Im not a fan of the super oysters with fat lugs. I’d rather they keep the thinner lug profile with a slightly bigger case like with the current 43mm sea-dweller or the six digit reference 40mm sea dweller circa 2014-2017 (RIP). I must say I was almost expecting the story to take a twist like “...then suddenly I glanced a third watch, THE watch, on the wrist of the proprietor! A solid gold datejust/ day-date complete with fluted bezel and jubilee bracelet. Pure Rolex, pure FU, pure ambrosia.” Your datejust screams Rolex, evokes a time when men would have owned just that one watch.

    I have the tool you are referencing, I believe. Like a pair of (very) expensive tweezers.

    A great looking watch, at a ridiculously insane price.

    Jajaja. A very handsome gateway watch indeed. I think the 34mm suits you well, you could even do a 32mm I reckon. This is probably closer to the watch which summited Everest on the wrists of Tenzing/Hillary compared to the “explorer” tagged models. Perhaps if you ever fancy a sports model, you can look into Rolex bubblebacks. Or a Tudor mini sub , both are within this size range. But I think for someone at the pinnacle of their craft such as yourself - a Gold Rolex, or a Rolex Pre-Daytona chrono with a Valjoux 72 movement. Speaks of a man who only needs to answer to himself.

    No one seems to be impressed with RM13/kilo musang king. When I visit you in Bentong someday we are definitely getting some of that.

    I wonder which vintage Daytona. Saw an exotic dial example on Ellen's wrist today as I was watching a show. Commonly referred to as the "Paul Newman Daytona"
