    Wow, I'm happy with my one Rolex.
    Since they changed their stainless to no longer be hypoallergenic surgical steel, I won't probably ever buy one. Platinum is nice but would get destroyed. I can't wear gold anything, it makes my skin literally boil, so stainless was the only option, and since they changed their metallurgy, no Rolly for me.

    Hmm, I had no idea. I love mine.

    nice whitegold datejust!

    In the late 90s they changed their steel blend to no longer be surgical, raising the nickel percentage significantly. Anyone with a nickel allergy can pretty much not wear that or their white gold. I can't wear nickel OR gold, so IF I wanted a rolex, I'd have to get platinum or a vintage stainless option.

    Didn't know that either. I got my Submariner in the 80's, and i remember my wife telling me something about surgical steel, but i didn't pay too much attention at the time, i was just so happy to receive it from her. I guess that i just thought that Rolex still made them that way.

    Here's the story. After four daughters, my wife presented me with a son in Nov.1985. For Christmas that year, i bought her a diamond heart necklace, and she got me the Rolex. She said that it looked like the one that James Bond had in the movies. I'll never sell it, no matter what it's worth. I will leave it to my son, when my number is up.

    I love all of Chuck's movies. I'm especially fond of the three "Missing in Action" movies.

    Check out one of Chuck's movies called "The Hitman". I think you'll like it.

    Yea I was not pleased with that change. There is a huge difference in the surgical vs just the stainless blend they use, a significant nickel content change.

    I love hearing that we have a Winter Weather Warning/Advisory in Kill Devil Hills. Possible up to 3" of snow. I'm going to laugh my *** off at the drivers down here.

    Try living in the south. Martial Law would be implemented. The entire state would shut down.

    When you have so many apps that when one gets updated, you check it out, and realize that you already own it and forgot!
