Weekly Watch Photo – Rolex Day Date with two different dials

This Weekly Watch Photo is about the changing looks of one watch, a Rolex Day Date. Watch enthusiast Jocke, has already treated us with many beautiful watch photos. His photo of a Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600 was the reason I wanted, no desperately needed, a Sea-Dweller. 

Recently he changed the dial from a Day Date, giving the watch an entire new look. The story starts with a beautiful brown dial, with matching creme colored day and date wheels.

After some work the day and date wheel and the dial are changed for a light blue version. This fresh new look, looks like that of the platinum Day Date II we showed you some time ago. Maybe because of the winter time, but I prefer the brown dial. Which color do you prefer?

Jocke made an extensive photo report of changing the dial, which is well worth looking at!
