Rolex interesting discussion

Recently I was with a couple of friends and we somehow came to discuss about Rolex watches. It was a pretty interesting discussion touching a wide range of topics. Some was funny, some sensitive and some very interesting. 

This group of friends consist of collectors, non collectors and people in the watch industry. At the end of the day, we came up with a list of the most popular Rolex Professional models in Taiwan at the moment (mainly input from friends in the industry)....

The list (most popular to the least)...

Rolex Daytona. The white is currently more popular then the black. 

Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi.

Rolex Sky-Dweller blue dial.

Rolex Submariner Date (Hulk).

Rolex GMT-Master II (Batman).

Rolex GMT-Master II (two tone Everose).

Rolex Sea-Dweller 43.

Rolex Deepsea D-Blue.

Rolex Submariner.

Rolex Submariner Date.

Rolex GMT-Master II Black. It is interesting to note that demand for this watch is on the increase. 

Rolex Sea-Dweller.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Black.

Rolex Sky-Dweller White.

As for the rest of the Professional models, i.e. Explorer, Explorer II and Milgauss... I guess they are not as popular as the ones above.

Seiko shopping in Japan

How I love Seiko in Japan.....

There are Seiko sold in Japan that are not made in Japan. Even more interesting is that there are Seiko watches that are only for the Japanese market and are not made in Japan.

Seiko Astron.

Very close to buying, very close indeed.
