    Rolex have released their latest addition to the Datejust dial range, a “Cannabis Green” dial, allowing owners to celebrate getting as high as Daytona grey market prices.

    The new blue dial actually looks nice!

    The Blue dial is cool, not really a fan at all of the green.

    I heard they went from a crown with 22 ridges to a crown with 24 ridges too in order to improve traction in the wet. It’s like a whole new watch really.

    They've gone with the green foliage dial so that when you visit an AD to view one and it isn't in stock the salesperson can tell you you are actually mistaken, it is actually in stock, but as it has the special and exclusive Rolex 'Roloflague' camouflage dial you cant actually see it. So there.

    Yet another watch people sort of but don’t really want because they’d rather a sub or a GMT if it were actually in stock, but will have to wait for since this waiting list will be shorter than that waiting list. I have genuine pity for Rolex’s marketing and PR team who have to make this basket of mediocrity and laziness seem like a product release.

    Jean-Claude Monachon is up there in Bienne churning out things like the 2020 Snoopy Speedmaster with the cool animated caseback and the brilliant NTTD Seamaster Pro and Rolex are making their explorer smaller and part gold, then sticking a plant on a Datejust. This is a multi billion dollar company delivering something more underwhelming than a 4 year old’s artwork.

    I’m not surprised I’m just disappointed. More so than I even expected to be.

    Tudors offering is nearly as bad - albeit the chrono looks ok - but an 18k BB58 - really? I’ll be interested to see the price....

    Hamilton has been making cannabis dials since at least 1926 ;)

    Is the BB58 925 really made of silver? That's a pretty... weird choice.

    This blue dial is very nice ! I am not fan about this cannabis dial, too far from my representation of what a classy DJ should be.

    Smoking some might make these releases more exciting...but not likely.

    ...then you could have it delivered rather than go into a dispensary, er, AD.
