Rolex will most likely see a price increase in 2018 now that they will be rolling out the 3235 movement into new pieces.

There's always an annual price increase regardless of economic factors or new features, though is is nice to see Rolex moving (albeit at glacial speed) towards giving you something a little better than a stale workhorse movement at that price.

No there isn't. Rolex has not increased prices in over 2 years.

The movement may be stale but its reliable and accurate.

Loving the new Sea Dweller 126600. I may finally bite the bullet on a Rolex.

I have the 116600 and was going to upgrade to the 126600 but after trying it on I changed my mind. It's just a tad too big for me. The 116600 is just perfect minus the end link, wish Rolex did a better job integrating. I do like the cyclops on the 126600 as it's much easier to see the date and of course the red lettering.

Problem with the seadweller old and new included is that they don't fit nice under a cuff. So I usually wear my BLNR during the week and the Sd4k on the weekends.

Question 1: What are the chances that sea dweller deep blue would be updated with new movement in coming few months?
Question 2: Any recommended Rolex ADs in Vancouver?

See, my daily is currently a Seiko MarineMaster 600 (SBDB001), so I like a bigger watch. I was eyeing a DeepSea, but now I'm torn. The 116600 just feels too small to me.

That's really, really nice! Way too rich for me unfortunately.

It's possible as the newer movement isn't radically different just more of an update. As for the deep blue, unless you have a relationship with an AD or go grey market getting one is next to impossible.

If you like a nice chunky watch, look at the Tudor pelagos:

Is the benefit of an automatic of not having to change battery save more money over time? Or does the cost of repairing/maintaining movement offset the cost? Compar3d to a quartz movement

There is no economic benefit to automatics. Period. It's an expensive hobby, and for some of us, a terminal disease.

lmao sadly the truth comes out

If you want economic benefit, pick up a cheap quartz watch that you like and forget about the watch world entirely ;)

Check out Monticristo. I have never had a bad experience there.
