Really Handsome Rolex GMT II Ceramic with Rolex Green Dial...

The Yellow Rolex GMT II Ceramic has got to be one of the best looking Rolex watches ever made.

The Rolex Green Dial with the Black Ceramic Bezel with the Yellow Gold Body is great combo.

The Maxi Markers, Fat Hands and Supercase are awesome!!!!

In this photo it looks like the second hand and 24 hour hand have been removed, but the second hand is blurred by the long exposure and the 24 hour hand is hiding behind the minute hand.

New York Yankees 1961 World Championship Presentational Rolex

1961 Bill "Moose" Skowron New York Yankees World Championship Presentational Rolex Watch. Number three on the Yankees' home run chart with twenty-three in 1961, the stocky first baseman certainly played a key role in the Bombers' eventual World Championship this season, a feat for which he was presented this fine Rolex by the Commissioner of Baseball.

The band is not original to the watch, and is crafted from gold-plated stainless steel. Condition is unimprovable, with not a single defect to be found, and the watch is perfectly operational. The provenance is likewise superb, as the watch is accompanied by a handwritten letter from Skowron attesting to the details of its presentation and sale to a collector.

This watch lot # 19557 sold in 2005 for $7,170 at Heritage Auctions.

Photoshop Fun: Stainless Rolex Submariner LV Supercase...

I heard Rolex may have perfected the process of making a Green Ceramic Bezel "LV" for the upcoming Supercase Sub.  

I was very curious to see what such a Rolex would look like so I decided to mock it up in Photoshop.

Looks pretty cool to me:
