i dont like the Datejust personally. So many pattern, it dilutes the character. And in S'pore, I tell u, the biggest owners of datejust are the 50 plus auntie brigade. There are many many aunties who buy steel-gold datejust when they get their half a million pension with their CSC cards eg the teachers and the nurses. They are everywhere!

When he's 50+, he can buy something uncle looking then. I say enjoy your youth, buy something your age (ie assuming pew is not an uncle hee). I regret not getting explorer, it is half the price but has twice the character compared to my steel-gold blue submariner. I'm def getting explorer coming dec when i get my bonus heehee, unless I decide to get a thick gold bracelet instead heehee. Then I will buy the crystal apple from tiffany (abt 200 bucks) and when my friends come over, I will say, "Did u watch Love Generation?" Lol
one thing for the DateJust is too common loh...but it also the most practical model..that why they are the best Seller...

anyway..i think if you get the Exp then you will miss the blue-sub lah..
if you get A then you will miss B..if buy B then will miss A...
1 Rolex is not enough...best can get the whole series...see my mood and choose the watch to wear...
i got the Exp I liao..i also very gian so many other models...

For me, I find datejust ok so long as it is not two tone with fluted bezel and jubilee bracelet.

Between Explorer, Air King and Datejust, My fav would be the explorer (but I am very fickle minded, and explorer leaves me with no option to change) followed by Airking (I really love it's simple clean cut design) and lastly the datejust.

How bout the oyster perprtual no date? What is the difference between this one and airking? Seems to me like paying few hundred dollars more just to have the airking word removed

Haha I think that will prob happen also... but at least for Exp, it just seem more relevant in pop culture. I also feel like collecting more rolex heehee, my friend is right, and u r right, it will never stop at one

That's what swing me towards the datejust, many combinations. I would have jumped for the explorer if I can afford 1 watch every year. But for the datejust, with just a couple of hunderds, I can afford to mix and match

The more I look at the new DJ, the more I find it sissy, and the more I find it not rolexy. Seem to have lost the character that a rolex should have. Guess I got to take a look and have a feel at the actual thing before I can comment (or rather condam n ) this watch further
