The Rolex Sea Dweller 126600 By Hodinkee

As the title says a video by Hodinkee a week on the wrist with a Rolex Sea Dweller 126600 this was the big big launch from Rolex this year at Basel 2017. Its the 50th Anniversary of the Sea Dweller so hence the Basel launch, the new Dweller has “SEA -DWELLER” in red writing as a homage to the original had 50 years ago.

The new Sea Dweller Ref 126600 discontinued the previous model Rolex 116600 which was in production for 3 / 4 years which was one of the shortest produced sports watch. Not sure why it was such a short run possibly due to the model sat in the shop windows of Rolex Dealers for a long while was always the last one standing at the price.  The new one is bigger and better Rolex put a lot of thought in to this model with a cyclops at 3 o clock which was a shock for the Sea Dweller range, a new bracelet slightly wider etc… Watch and Enjoy the video !!

The Omega Planet Ocean XL Ceramic 232.30.46.21.01.001

As the title says Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean XL Ceramic Bezel 45.5mm in stainless steel, a great big feeling timepiece much nicer to the predecessor non ceramic version with the bonus of a see through caseback with a few other tweaks.  This houses a cal 8500 co axial movement which looks a stunner through the sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 600m so it is definitely a true divers watch.

The sapphire glass has anti reflection coating which is nice to stop the glare of the sun but a pain when you scratch the coating, the rotating ceramic bezel is very nice finish, as all the watch companies have gone down the ceramic bezel route looks beautiful and hard wearing to boot.

The watch has the date function at 3pm and they do this model in a few different models and great everyday watch not to expensive either and very popular heavy watch on the wrist with the bonus of a good second hand market value. The dial is very nice with the big massive hands with plenty of luminova that glow very bright in the dark. A great piece that everyone should have or try if you are watch fanatic.
