Steel Rolex Submariner Black Dial
Steel Rolex Submariner Green Ceramic Bezel Green Dial- Oh Puke!
Steel Rolex Explorer 1
It's official. The official Rolex roster is out. Finally. Well, I was right. The 40 mm Steel Submariner has been upgraded with all the trimmings, with a better bracelet, black maxi dial for ultimate clean legibility, and ceramic bezel for longevity. This was expected and an important move For Rolex. For those of you who doubted me, you can all suck it hard!
Then the kermit got greener. Why? I don't Fuckin know. To add insult to injury. A 40 mm steel submariner with green ceramic bezel and green maxi dial. Besides Rolex promoting the corporate colors on their watches to throw us all off, it's just not enough to have me convinced, at least pretend and say that we are a green company or anything. This watch is hideously shiteous in my opinion. The sad part is it will probably sell out.
The Curveball thrown by Rolex this year was The 39 mm Explorer 1. I wont lie I was expecting a new Explorer 2 for this years Basel 2010. The Explorer 1 is a fucking legend and this year the watch got bigger from 36 mm to 39 mm and was upgraded with the better bracelet, the dial stayed the same, black arabic with luminous hour markers and hands. There use to be a cult following for this watch 10 years ago in Japan which sent the value to the moon, I have a feeling that this new modification will reignite the same fire worldwide for this watch. Up until two years ago with the introduction of the new Air King, The Explorer 1 was the only Rolex watch to be certified a chronometer without a date.
