Same! I’m actually revisiting my sub, which I haven’t worn much since I got my Seadweller. My brother wanted to try the SD so I loaned it to him for a week. I miss it, but the sub is still great.

Default Rolex

I have a 1016 Explorer I bought in 82,83. I knew nothing about Rolex watches, just Rolex was worn by James Bond. When I went to look at the watches I picked the one with Arabic numerals. Good choice on my part. I just had it serviced and was told it was worth 15 times what I paid for it
