    I just HAD to get one before you can't get a BNIB 14060M from my AD Klarlund in Copenhagen anymore! :beardjump: :beardjump:

    As you can see, it's a late G-serial 14060M with the Parachrom Bleu hairspring (I simply had to have the watch opened to see it the movement has the inhouse blue hairspring... also to share the pic of it with you).

    Furthermore, the clasp has the clasp code "CX11"... in the German forum I also frequent, it was concluded lately that "CX" is NOT a random code but stands for "2011"... I have now seen more than 3 "CX" codes plus have read reports of more in existence. So it's definately not random.

    Therefor, it seems the bracelet on my watch can be dated so November 2011... this also gives you a fair good impression of the date of manufacture of the 14060M itself...

    The AD hat another G-series in stock:

    But the dial did not have the "Fat" Rolex lettering:

    Compare with mine that does not only sport the "Fat" Rolex lettering but also has the old-style "fat" Rolex coronet:

    Congratulations, Bo. Funny how the manual's "cover imprint" predicted exactly what would come in 2012! (I recall seeing 14060M Subs supplied with these newer style manuals last year...well before the 114060 was revealed at Baselworld) . But then again, I think most of us knew the Ceramic Sub in its pure form was a foregone conclusion, sooner or later.

    You've gotten yourself an evergreen Rolex classic, sir. Cheers!

    Sweet Bo, huge congrats buddy. :rocker:

    I put mine on this morning after wearing my Speedy the past couple of days. You had me taking mine off and looking at the dial real close, I still have no idea if my lettering is fat or not. :dummy:


    Enjoy it for life Bo, no flipping this one. :police:

    Well, this just about made my weekend Bo. I am so happy you decided to go for this one, as you say there really are going to be very few chances left to get one of these NIB from and AD and I know how much you have wanted one for so long. I will go out on a limb here and say this one will never be flipped!

    Hearty congratulations mate. I will smoke a bowl in your honour later!

    Congrats Bo. I can't blame you at all for grabbing one of the last ND Subs - true classics. Now get out there and take some diving lessons! :thumbsup:

    Great decision Bo! Been wearing mine for over two years now and it has never missed a beat.
    Certainly a keeper.
