Shady Senior Member Veteran Geek New Submariners

Work in NYC, pass by Tourneau all the time, and stop and look in the window. First time I've seen the new style Subs with the maxi-diamond markers, looked awesome. They had the Two Tone black and the blue dial, HOT. Wish I would have snapped some pics, will try tomorrow... Anyone else seen these yet? And does anyone know a price on these?

Whats the mm size? My little datejust 36mm sure looks small... It is jsut one of the watches I didn't loose and I just can't sell it even though I need the cash... Surely Rolex will get on board with larger sizes... Perhaps a 46mm or 47mm???

Surely Rolex will get on board with larger sizes... Perhaps a 46mm or 47mm??? The Sub is still 40mm I believe. It plays larger though, due to the different case shape. You might want to check out the Datejust II and the Day-Date II, I believe both have been beefed up to 41-42mm. IMO all three of those have a bigger presence than the mm would indicate, anyways.. Also I think the Sea-Dweller is 44mm... Shady View Public Profile Send a private message to Shady Find all posts by Shady Add Shady to Your Contacts #8 06-09-2010, 05:16 PM

I saw them, there is defiantly more to them in the lug area but don't look at them wearing a Invicta ( I was wearing my Leviathan ) or they will look tiny!!! battleshipduke View Public Profile Send a private message to battleshipduke Send email to battleshipduke Find all posts by battleshipduke Add battleshipduke to Your Contacts #10 06-09-2010, 05:36 PM

Yep, but the ones specifically that I was talking about, was this, as well as the two-tone w/ black, but with the diamond hour markers. And what really set it off, was that the diamonds were larger, same size as the maxi-lume markers. See if you can find a pic, I haven't been able to.. Still quite nice, though, thanks !!

the white gold version is really impressive too. i used to be a "bluesy" fan.. relative to TT. but with the change to white text on the black dial, i really like the traditional black and gold version better now... saving up for the new SS version that was just announced in basel this year. TT run just over $10.3k USD.. but you can find them for about $8k in the 96% TZ range, 2nd hand. __________________ Rolex, Omega, Benrus, Poljot, Oceanaut, Lucien Picard, Tag Heuer, Invicta and Renato in my collection... zak98 View Public Profile Send a private message to zak98 Send email to zak98 Find all posts by zak98 Add zak98 to Your Contacts #12 06-10-2010, 06:28 AM Join Date: Apr 2010 Posts: 281 Real Name: mike

here is a "rolex" pub shot of white gold sub.. tried one on at a recent swiss watch event at AD. love it. will never be able to afford one at $27k new. but it was striking.. in person.

TT run just over $10.3k USD.. but you can find them for about $8k in the 96% TZ range, 2nd hand. I have the blue/gold TT, as pictured in this thread. It's a sweet watch and it does indeed seem to play larger than its actual 40 mm diameter. Even though I have a number of much larger watches, I don't have any problem wearing the Sub afterwards. As far as finding a used one in the $8k range, what you likely will find is the older model. I was skeptical of the newer model at first (because of the large price bump) and had a chance to buy an older model NIB but chose the new model because of 3 key differences: 1. The fade-proof ceramic bezel 2. Anti-reflective coating on the crystal...the older models don't have this and in the jewelry store, in a side-by-side comparison, I could not read the date on the older model because of all the reflection! It was no problem at all on the newer model. 3. Glide-Lock bracelet...this allows fairly large adjustments in bracelet size on the fly and without tools. Sometimes, especially after exercise, my wrist gets larger and at other times, especially in the cold, it gets a bit smaller. With this feature, I can always get a comfortable fit easily. There are also a couple of other improvements to the newer model: 1. Anti-magnetic hairspring 2. Solid end links in the bracelet (i.e., more gold involved) Steve steverob View Public Profile Send email to steverob Find all posts by steverob Add steverob to Your Contacts

Shady, If you get the chance, please pop into Tourneau and ask them. My experience in that store is that they are very friendly. The last time I was in there, I was seriously dressed down but they were still happy to show me some very expensive pieces. Since I live on the other coast, I don't get there very often. Also, about Christmas time last year, they had a very sweet offer. On any watch purchase over about $400, they would let you finance it interest free for 24 months and they made the first payment, which amounted to over a 4% discount to boot. I'm curious if they are still offering those deals.

yep.. that is one version of the new subs shown at basel this year. that is the new (116610LV) version sub. previous one just had a green bezel. i had heard the price was going to be a bit higher than that. ~ $7750. and the std 116610 (black bezel, black dial) sub date will be $7250. i am saving for the new std black version. __________________ Rolex, Omega, Benrus, Poljot, Oceanaut, Lucien Picard, Tag Heuer, Invicta and Renato in my collection... zak98 View Public Profile Send a private message to zak98 Send email to zak98 Find all posts by zak98 Add zak98 to Your Contacts #21 06-11-2010, 02:58 PM

Just passed by, saw them in the window. Cant get a good shot, towards the back of the display, glare on the window makes the diamonds look like regular markers... Just for an encore, stopped and drooled on the window of the official panerai store...
