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
to me the new model got a 'Rounder' look...think you prefer the the older classic oyster look...
the attracting part about the new DJ is the new SEL + Solid Center Link bracelet...more solid as compare to the old DJ that using those non-SEL bracelet...if you compare them you will know whcih is better..

anyway..like it or not..they coming out these new DJ...think they will stop making the old type..so once the old stock clear finish...want buy also dont have...

guys...what do u think of the explorer I, eyeing this for my next one.

BTW, do you guys observe that IWC has a lot of eyeball. Most movies can see those actors flashing them.

I would think in Asian context, a rolex will always be a rolex. IWC is just another expensive watch brand.

Personally I find IWC design although nice, but not contemporary. Dun have the makings of a real classic. Of cause just my personal opinion

I like the Explorer too. Its a celebrity endorsed watch lor. U can tell people, "u got watch Love Generation? yes, this is THE watch." Then u can buy the crystal apple from tiffany, and after work, u can place it next to the apple, on your table and admire. U can also buy the VCD and put it next to it, then when ur friends visit, u can say "u got watch love generation..." Get the drift?

Explorer is COSC, airking is not right? So it underwent rigourous testing. 15 days of testing ok. It also has a rich history, don't u want to own a piece of history? Went up Everest leh. Airking does not have an illustrious history.

And u get higher resale value also mah.

And Explorer is more prestigious mah. Airking is entry level. If u meet fellow Rolexes, and u wear a Explorer, u get more street cred.

So u really are paying for something. Most of all, Explorer will put a bigger smile on ur face. And U can say I bought it, because I can afford it. And I love it.
The crystal apple cost $179....check already

Dunno leh, let me think about it some more....

See the physical watch itself, comparing the dj and the explorer, the explorer seems like toy watch, the new datejust is alot more solid looking.

But of cause, the explorer is still dam n nice

What is the difference between

AirKing and Oyster Perpetual no date

Date and DateJust?
date is 34mm.....datejust 36mm......same movement 3135

boysize datejust 31mm

airking 34mm...caliber 3130....

oyster perpetual 34mm ...same movement but is a certified chronometer....so its more expensive....
