    Now I'm tempted towards the dssd. Nice size but looks super thick!
    Anyone use it as a daily watch?
    Actually the Explorer II might be a better option and more cost effective. It is smaller at 42mm but the dial size might be larger vs the DSSD. Don't think there is anything larger

    Have you scour thru' the sales sections here to get a sense of the pricing? These are the more recent ones:

    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr
    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr
    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr
    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr
    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr
    https://www.sgrolexclub.com/threads/...highlight=blnr

    The retail price locally should still be $12,010 but I am not sure how much higher the local ADs are now selling.

    It is a personal choice. Whichever you choose has to be one that you like better and will wear it proudly.

    If you are considering a family heirloom, it has to be a watch which you enjoy wearing and your kid/s had seen you wore before. I received an Omega Seamaster 36mm which my father bought between 1961-1963, i had it serviced and whenever i wear it, it reminds me of him. On the other hand, my son who's 6 foot plus but whose profession requires him to be on a keyboard most of his working days hate a heavy watch so a deepsea dweller would be wasted on him. Best get a watch which you love and will wear often, i will go for a new president and pass it on .... but that's me ...

    Cheers!
