Pro-Hunter DRSD Test Drive....Steve P (Thailand)
8th March 2008
Landed in London and took delivery yesterday: I am truly blown away!!!
All I will say for now is - "This watch far exceeds anything I was expecting & while super classy it really is the ultimate demonstration of classy, eye catching, wearable 'ant-bling'.
Well done K, you deserve a big pat on the back for this.
I was always a bit of a Pro Hunter Sceptic until I saw the Sub in the flesh, I then realised that this isn't some quick-flip money making idea, but a serious high quality upgrade that must have taken blood sweat and tears to achieve.
The new Double Red is simply just a monster of a watch. The attention to detail is absolutely mind blowing. The original case still maintains its Rugged Rolex feel but with a velvet NASA-like ceramic kind of finish. It absolutely does not look or feel like a coating whatsoever, rather some kind of new space-age like material that No one has seen before.
Only when you have it in your hand can this make any sense.
The Red Text: First drawn in by this I knew this was going to be something special and I was not disappointed. I have been staring at this through a loup now for nearly 2 days and I will say K is correct. Rolex could not have done it better because, it is so, so perfect. The red overprint is 100% as is the addition of the Pro-Hunter, done in white then overprinted to match. If you like Double Reds, you will love this.
There is no way anyone could tell me this is not Rolex quality, for me it is 'at the very LEAST' Rolex quality. I Feel for sure, when they see this, they will be kicking themselves for not thinking of it first.
