It's A Sign Of The Time
Bob Dylan sang, "The times, they're a changin'" and my pal Jacek took this photo that shows a new Rolex Day-Date II next to its great uncle, which is a vintage Submariner. Of course the irony is the Day-Date is much larger and meatier than the Submariner.
Human beings have been growing a lot over the last century, so it makes sense watches would scale-up the same way. Fascinating juxtaposition.
