Same old explorer on 6.75. Think the new one would be too big

But if you want to flip it, I have 7.5” wrists and would love to snag one

If you haven’t tried it on, it doesn’t wear small. I have a 6.75’ wrist and thought it looked too big on me

For comparison sake, my 39mm quartz GMT on my 6.5" wrist is just about perfect. I don't think the 42 would look as good.

The SA told me when I am offered it, I can’t try on to see it first just have to accept. I’m hoping the slimmer lugs make it feel smaller on wrist. I love the look of the watch with the white dial and the GMT complication. I decided I am going to keep and enjoy it at a minimum until I can get a Pepsi, but I would most likely be waiting forever if I don’t get some purchase history first. I hope to never need to sell it. I know I can pull it off on my wrist based on the width of my wrist, just ideally preferred something smaller since I already have a 42.5mm that is thicker. This will start my Rolex collection and provide me more happiness than the BB58 black (might get one down the road unless they come out with BB58 GMT 🤞)due to the complications and dial color fill some slots in my growing collection.

Ugh if only we could get the exact model we want without games. If it really doesn’t fit me, worst case is I won’t lose money on it if I sell it. Not a big fan of flipping, but might not have another option if I have to commit before trying on. I have declined SD43, Deep Sea, TT Sub, OP41 Silver (kinda regret), DJ since I don’t want to buy something I don’t want and flip just to get what I do want.

WTH, where is this? I’ve been actively hunting an sd43 or new explorer ii for a while and nothing

Anyone else getting a little Rolex fatigue? Every year seems to be small incremental changes to watches that I’ll never be able to get due to their distribution model. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still very much love to get a classic model at some point, but it’s just been getting tiring knowing every year it’s small changes to the same watches and I won’t be able to get them anyways. And when they do push the envelope (OPs 2 years ago), they get discontinued 2 years later and pump prices up…

Hey folks, I am looking for a new watch — something military inspired. I have Rolex, tags, and Omegas — looking for something unique.

I remember a guy I met on a plane showing off his watch, a sleek rectangle, two face watch that could be pulled and watch face flipped. I appreciate any recommendations, especially if someone can identify the watch I am referring to with my description. Thank you

Thoughts on the Tissot Classic Dream Swissmatic as an intro to nice watches? I’m thinking a reputable brand automatic under $500 (barely) is a nice place to start.
