I’m always tempted to get a GS, but hearing the horror stories with servicing and at 4 year intervals is a turn off.
I'm on year 4 right now for my sbgj005 and so far it's still performing quite well without a service yet, but yes, i've also heard service for GS or particular GS would need to be sent back to japan - should be ok if service is in japan knowing they usually have quite a higher standard than other places - I guess i'll find out when the time comes.

until then this baby gets a fair share of wrist time - old pic.

Really nice. I like watches but not enough to spend that kind of money. I don't think I could afford one either. Not to challenge how people spend their money, but at some point only connoisseur could tell the difference between a 600$ Seiko and a GS. If I was making 10x more money, maybe I would go for a 6K watch.
you can tell immediately when you put them side by side.

Personally not feeling the new LE speedy, the gold dial are not for me but it does have nice contrast! Congrats on the purchase!

Hey RFD watch crew - close to adding a Rolex to the collection. It'll be my first (and likely to be only) Rolex.

Currently deciding between the following (listed in order of size)
1) 39mm Explorer I
2) 41mm Datejust with fluted bezel (wildcard of the bunch)
3) 42mm Explorer II and further to that can't decide white vs. black

Currently leaning towards the Explorer II but want to hear some perspective!

Explorer 1, 214207 is my vote. Can’t go wrong with a Explorer 2 either.
