Hi all,
more than rumors say that at Basel 2008 Rolex will present the new Explorer II, that will use the same new GMT-C case, bracelet & clasp, and maxi dial with a fixed S/S bezel.

Regards,

Engi

I love the pre-BaselWorld speculation season. It has started early this year!

It isn't a stretch to see the Exp II with the thicker case, improved clasp, and maxi dial. All the bits are available.

Assuming there would be no ceramic bezel, I'd like to see them reprise a 2008 "Steve McQueen" with an Orange 24hr hand. That would be excellent!

P.S. I hope that the bezel will not be polished ... :sleep:

About this time last year i got a lovely Rolex brochure sent from my AD with a preview of the Baselworld 2007 watches, it contained all the watches shown on the Rolex website under the 'new creations' banner. It was instrumental in my getting a new Air-King.
I may see if my AD has any such thing this year, rest assured any info i come up with, WTF will be the first place it goes!

Thanks,

Am I the only one who thinks that old Explorer II is perfect, and it doesn't need any "improvements"? ;)

Engi & JP:

I saw you had less than 5 posts, so........

To begin with, let me welcome you to WTF!!!!
No doubt you will find this board quite interesting, as we have multiple forums, each with its own bunch of characters.

Have you seen our FAQ yet? http://watchtalkforums.info/forums/f...splay.php?f=12

Take about 30 seconds to read, and explains the forum.

If you are intersted in posting pictures, and we love to post here, check out Mr. Houston's Quick and Easy way to post. Guaranteed Success!!

POSTING PICS

Posting pictures is very easy. Here's what you do -

1. Register with a picture host like photobucket.com
This is a free service for up to 1,000 images.

2. Once registered, use the choose or browse function on your photobucket homepage to locate the image you wish to post, from your hard drive

PLEASE REMEMBER to set the maximum size of the image
800 x 600 is best
Anything else would make viewing and accessing the page for users difficult.

3. Click SELECT and then UPLOAD

4. Once uploaded, simply copy the fourth option under each image on your photobucket homepage and paste it into the body of your text here. This fourth link is the Image Tag.

If you have any questions at all, you have a few options too:

Just post a thread and ask! We answer a wide range here and everyone is willing to help anyone out. For stuff not covered by watches, you can post in the Community Forum.

You can also send an Administrator/Moderator a PM (Private Message) to do that, just click on the person's name, and then select private message.

So, put your seat back in an upright position, tray back in place, and strap yourself in and enjoy WTF!!!

Hannes' photography, as always, is great. The speculation is great fun, but sparse and tentative.
There is probably better advance information about the President's forthcoming speech or the DOD's next fighter jet technology than what changes rolex will introduce next.
I read John's review of the GMT IIc (was very impressed w/ the changes) looked at it and bought one. Now I've been wanting a new Dweller for some time, but can't bring myself to buy one without the new GMT IIc style bracelte and clasp.
But..... when will these changes (improvements) be incorporated on the new Dweller.
You'd think some industrial insider, spy type would have some information to leak!
Please!
I'm already on BP medicine. All I want is a Dweller with the decent bracelet and clasp that it shoud have had years ago.

Phenomenal photography Hannes.

I think the security at Rolex must be better than that at the Pentagon!
You'd think that someone at Rolex could be "bought". There's got to be a mole there somewhere.
Everyone has their price!

Has anyone heard any speculation regarding the possibility of an updated SD bracelet and clasp?

I recently purchased a new GMT IIc and, like most, am really impressed with what has been done with the clasp. The "drilled" links are far superior (IMHO) to the folded metal ones as well.

I've got my heart set on the SD as my next acquisition, but really want to hold out for the "improvements". Hopefully I'll live to see them.
