    Imagine if you will a picture of my other Eco Drive.

    Off white creamy dial 1-12 slightly triangular gold indices. Framed window for day date. White wheels with black letters and numbers. Spike hands in gold with lume. Gold stick second hand.
    On a textured dark brown leather strap.

    A rather elegant watch if I do say so myself!

    That is exactly why CIA and state people used to (and some still do) wear Rolex. It was like having wearable currency just in case you need some. I used to travel international to some interesting (and not in a tourist way) places. I wore a rolex. People say won't that make you a robbery target? Maybe at times but you can wear it and not flaunt it or have it with and not even wear it. Rolex, patek, Lange and a few others also hold their value. If one buys used they will most likely get close to what they paid or more in certain cases (as you already know). I got married and had kids. The bills stacked up and I was in another career that allowed me to be home but didn't pay near as much. The rolex was sadly sold. I'm looking to get one to give my son some day. That is the date just I would like to get by the way (along with a sub or sea dweller). Nice choice!

    There is no legit shop that would offer $500 for a working GMT (stainless or two tone). Stay away from places like that Bobs is a know used rolex store. They are advertising buy prices of $4500-$5000 for GMT's from the '80's and early 90's. You can get more if you sell yourself on forums. The same watches went for about $1000 new in '85.

    I know. I was just showing what would happen if you were needing money quick and using the bank account on your wrist to get some quick cash. I suppose you could spend the day going from jeweler to jeweler looking for the best price on your Rolex while your buddy was in jail or you needed to flee the country or whatever people imagine they could do by using their Rolex for currency.

    No, I'm not wearing this. It's a Christmas present for my daughter. It started its life out as a SNK809 and I modded it to this.

    In other news I changed my mind.
    Going to wear my Fossil Tornado.
    White dial. 1-12 bar indices excluding 3 where a date window resides.
    White wheel with black numbers.
    Silver sword hands with big lume areas. Stick second hand with a lumed arrowhead end.
    Maybe dark blue maybe black over red bezel.
    45mm or so on a black leather strap.
