This is just awesome: Day-Date Donnerstag at VRF. An exceedingly wicked list of Day-Dates all in one post. Two words, eight letters: MUST READ!
Board Talk: great topic about the love-it-or-hate-it bark Rolexes. Some stunning pieces being shown! The very first Day-Date I bought was a 18078.. I will try to dig up a picture.
Board Talk: VRF’s Friday Wear topic is spiced with some KILLER Day-Dates, amongst them this stunning platinum Rolex Day-Date 1804 with original ‘Big Diamond’ (+10% compared to the gold versions) dial. Fun fact – tube is actually higher to make sure the hands do not touch the big diamonds!
Other notable examples posted include a stunning platinum 1802 posted by member Marlon with galvanic dial and PT bracelet. Grail material. Check it out at: http://www.network54.com/Forum/207593/thread/1365756051/It%27s+Friday+lets+give+it+some+pics.
Board Talk: Another VRF classic – a comparison of two collectors classics: the Constellation and Day-Date.
Worth every second of your time – if only for the pictures!

Member Rocco asks for advice on a stella dial and gets some valuable insights. His original picture has since been deleted, but luckily another member saved a copy.
Member and friend Steve.P shares his superb green hat-trick, as previously featured on ddrlx.
Member G.C. asks for advice on the value of a rare non-tritium Wide Boy dial and matching hands. Good question – hence the lack of an answer? Who knows.. The Wide Boys are very popular at the moment, and the no-lume version is quite rare.
