Rolex Explorer II with White Dial...

The White Dial Rolex Explorer II is one of the great Rolex Classics.  The Explorer II is not as popular as the Submariner or the GMT because people seem to love the rotating bezels.

That being said, the Explorer II is probably the most durable Rolex made.  I say this because the bezel has a brushed satin finish and does not move. Hard to break and even harder to scratch.  This Rolex Really is a serious Tool watch.

I would not be surprised if we see a major design overhaul at Basel 2009, where the Explorer II gets a Triplock Crown, Supercase with wider lugs, Maxi Markers, Fatter Hands and yes, a movable bezel.

I think if Rolex makes these changes, the Explorer will be as popular as its Sub, GMT & Daytona Brethren.  That being said, the current Explorer II is a very cool watch.

Rolex Rainbow

Pepsi, Espresso, Coke, Rootbeer, Black Coffee and Pepsi GMT Bezels.  All we need now is a 7up. 
Wait a minute, nobody likes 7up any more.

Speaking of 7up, I always liked 7up but after they tried to improve it, it tastes terrible.

What happened!?!  I like the 7up Sub though...

James Bond: My dear, uncooperative Domino.

Domino: How do you know that? How do you know my friends call me Domino?

James Bond: It's on the bracelet on your ankle.

Domino: So... what sharp little eyes you've got.

James Bond: Wait 'til you get to my teeth.

Sunshine Submariner...

Beautiful Early Morning Sunlight on this Yellow Gold Submariner.

Notice these old Yellow Gold Rolex Submariners have solid end links and a Super-case with wider lugs like the upcoming Submariner that was recently shown at Basel 2008. 

This beauty also has nipple indices.
