Thanks. It is the PAM 531 with their latest in-house caliber. Being on the sidelines for a decade, it was worth the wait.

Ugh!!!!!!!

I rarely take my watch off. Even when I'm at work or home wrenching.


Last Friday, I took it off and set it on the bathroom counter on a soft, washcloth. My mom was in town visiting, and she thought she'd be helpful and do some laundry..........She grabbed the washcloth, and my Sub fell to the tile floor.


I didn't know it until about 15 minutes later. I immediately stopped it and took it to the jeweler. Still waiting for an estimate. The jeweler recommended a full cleaning and service while the watch is apart.


I bought my Sub after having a very close call at work. I'd always wanted a Rolex, but I could never justify the expense. My dad and I were talking about my work and somehow the subject of watches came up. My dad told me I should just do it. So I bought one. I have three boys who will all get a number of firearms, but my daughter will get my watch someday.




My watch has survived 8 years of full-time wear at work, home, and play, but it couldn't survive a visit from my mom.

This is good advice. It's a super easy fix, and not overly expensive. After 8 years it's probably ready for a service anyways.

That sucks. Hopefully no loose glass shards made it into the movement via the date window before you were able to stop it.

Rolex recently extended their warranty from 2 to 5 years and their recommended service interval from 5 to 10 years. They say it's because of the new synthetic oil formulation they've been using for the past 6 years.

Personally I don't have my watches serviced until they begin to either run erratically, lose/gain over 30 seconds a day, or stop altogether. The money I save more than makes up for the cost of replacing excessively worn parts.

Ha! To add a little more insult to injury, I just had the first service earlier this summer.......

It will be fine. They always are. Especially a sub where the parts are readily available. MAKE SURE YOUR GUY USES GENUINE ROLEX PARTs or just send to Rolex directly.

Will do. My guy is the only Rolex factory authorized Rolex service guy in Idaho. He does warranty work for Rolex.

Is he doing the work or sending it to Dallas? I'd guess the latter.

Just don't let them polish it, anything else can be easily sorted out!

If anyone is interested in a 3 week old Sinn U1, let me know. Apparently I didn't realize how heavy these watches are, and my arm just can't get used to it.

Hmm, I love heavy watches. Light ones feel so...cheap? It is a good looking watch. Wish I were in the market, but have too many Rover projects to pay for!

Ryan had mentioned Greg Stevens straps a while ago and finally I got around to trying to take a photo...

Greg had made a special strap for me so that it could be sewn onto the lugs. Consequently, I don't change straps on this one very often. He made this one, before he went full time.

Greg's work is second to none. It has to be seen in person. This strap is more than ten years old and still going strong.
