I don't like the tritium dial, luminova is longer lasting and easier to see

I have never liked the yackmaster as it has always been over the top. I think all the new Rolexes are a bit much with exception to the new Explorer II

Have you seen a new explorer 2 in person? I tried it on. Looks better in pics. I had a gmt ceramic. It was nice. The clasp on the bands are much better now. Still no real love for it and I ditched it.

He is right across the river from philly. I have been meaning to go and visit as he seems to have very fair prices.
