    Hi,
    Just a quick note to introduce myself and to express my thanks to the community on OmegaForums!

    I've been a long-time single watch owner of a black dial Rolex Explorer II (Ref. 16570). Always appreciated that this was not neccessarily one of the more popular models, and for that reason stood out a bit. Anyways, fast-forward 17 years and I'm celebrating a significant-for-me life milestone, so decide to mix it up by getting a white dial watch to have a nice complement to my current watch. But which one... there are so many fantastic options!

    Well, one thing led to another and before you know it I'm staring at a beautiful white dial Zenith Daytona being offered for sale here on OF. Before proceeding with a deal, I reached out to several members of the forum who had recently dealt with this highly reputable seller. Within 24 hours I heard back from every one of the small number of members I reached out with, providing me details of their transactions and enthusiastic endorsements of the seller. Needless to say, I was amazed at the responsiveness and passion of these long-standing members of OF, and immensenly grateful.

    I received the Zenith Daytona yesterday, and it's just as advertised and in remarkable condition. I'll be sure to post a picture of it on my wrist in the WRUW thread shortly. In the meantime, I suspect there might be an Omega Speedmaster in my forseeable future!

    Glenn

    Of course, it's more fun to see pics of the watches than to read about them, so here's my Explorer II Ref. 16570...

    I just moved back east from Oakland (Downtown) last year after 4 years. Welcome to the Forum :thumbsup:

    From very personal experience, I recommend you buy an extremely secure safe for your watches living in a place like that.
