I'm a big Rolex fan and while I have a SS Sub I also have a TT Sub. Just cannot get my mind around TT Explorer. A double-standard I am sure, but there it is.

How do you feel about last year's TT Sea-Dweller?

I think I agree with you. The TT kind of defeats the purpose of Rolex's pure tool watch, but I totally understand why Rolex is doing it. Someone is going to buy it.

Yeah, it’s pretty bad and was fairly shocked when I saw it this morning. Almost as surprising as the move to 36mm.

we need to merge every single thread about the Two Toned ...why do they call it that instead of Steel & Gold (like Tudor) Explorer.

I actually like it quite a lot tbh, although not as much as the steel. I'm a bit of an oddball though as I kind of like TT watches, and generally don't dislike any of the TT Rolex references.

Why? The two tone Explorer is created for those who love two tone sport watches but have wrists too small to wear the 43mm Sea Dweller.

:sick: Do not like two tone Explorer. I think it would be quite interesting with the gold hands/indices only and maybe all gold, but I do not like the two tone Explorer. The Explorer is the very basic of the professional watches, and it seems weird to have it in gold. I get that the Sub and GMT and every other Rolex has gone two tone, but I wasn't a fan of those either. And I've never found a two tone bracelet better than the alternative all steel or all gold. It feels like someone couldn't afford to matte their entire car so they just did half.

A 36mm is nice though.

I thought it was pretty nice, but now i can't get this thought out. I just assumed it was a 'nice balance'.

I feel like a lot of men think the Two Tone Explorer is strange, but they may not have considered the ladies market.

Hadn't considered women for the TT Explorer. Maybe that's what they were thinking. Otherwise, it seems to conflict with the watch's legacy big time.

Conflicts in a way that a two-tone (or solid gold) submariner doesn't?

I'll pass on that TT explorer, but where is the long awaited Milgauss update?!

I have small wrist so I don’t mind the new 36mm. Out of the Exp lineup I still love Ref.1016 the best hands down. Think from the bright side, if you already own a Exp39 then your watch just increased value due to consumer preference. Not a bad deal. It is a bad news for folks who was on the fence from buying to remorse over it.

Not a fan of TT on Exp36 too.
