They're not completely inexpensive, but very worth it, imho.

There are various ones on the link below (for ceramic sub no-date). I have the "Curved End Nylon Strap--- I LOVE it. There are several different colors/styles as well.

I don't really like rubber straps, and I think leather is just..... strange on a dive watch (even if I don't dive with it). So, the nylon seems to be the best of both worlds.

PS: You can usually find an Everest coupon online if you search a bit.

PPS: Here's the main website where you can search by manufacturer (Rolex, Tudor and Panerai) and model.

Well, BaselWorld 2020 cancelled due to Coronavirus.

Rolex reveal will now be in NYC. Rumors are a *possible* ceramic GMT-II Coke and retirement of the Air King.

With talks of the 116900 possibly being discontinued, any chance these might hold decent value in the future? Looks like the older Air King models have fairly crummy resale; it's certainly no Submariner in that regard.

It’s hard to predict but it’s corky and looks like a fun piece. But I prefer the classic pieces.

the air king was one of the worst selling models until the rumors of them being discontinued started. and even then, they are fetching a premium like the other sport models, just not selling for as big of a loss

If those are for sale retail and you can buy one or both, I will buy one off of you. 100% serious.

Congrats! I am waiting on one and won't pay above retail. Been waiting for years as I won't buy a PM Rolex to bribe the dealers. Oh well, maybe COVID-19 will help out.

Agreed...a ~7 year old's collection is not complete without a Daytona

It was announced this morning that Rolex, Patek Philippe, Tudor, Chopard and Chanel will be leaving Baselworld. The brands will be teaming up with the group responsible for Watches & Wonders, Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (formerly known as SIHH), for a new expo in Geneva in early April of 2021. This new show will run congruent with Watches & Wonders at the Geneva Palexpo.

This atom bomb comes as no surprise to many, as the powerhouse brands Rolex, Tudor, and Patek recently announced that they would be postponing their 2020 releases to later this year or possibly even 2021. Shortly after launch dates were postponed, it was reported that Rolex executive Hubert du Plessix reached out to Baselworld management requesting refunds for all major brands set to show at the cancelled 2020 exhibition.

Rolex 16200 1989

Here is one of mine that I just picked up. A 1989 16200 Datejust, box and papers including the original credit card franking slip for 950.00. A simple yet very classy watch that goes with pretty much anything.[IMG][/IMG]

Lukeuk, I have the same Rolex, it’s just on a Oyster. I love the white dial, with roman numerals. I purchased it in 1998. It gets more wrist time, than my SS Submariner Date. I love its simplicity, and comfort. Great watch.
