OK, maybe I'm getting old(er) but I'm really enjoying the non-Sports models--post yours!>>

Like a lot of "newer" collectors, I was first drawn to vintage Rolex for their Tool/Sports models, as they were more relatable to me as a long-time chronograph and diver watch fan.
But I have really grown to admire and enjoy the non-tool Oysters for their elegance combined with toughness. They may be a bit smaller and usually lack a functioning bezel but they have their charms and they certainly grow on you, particularly as one gets to the point in life where dressing for dinner entails more than jeans and a polo shirt.
So these are my non-Sports Rolex that have found their way into my "permanent" collection...
...with a special exemption for my 1016, the original "Tool" watch but one that is still versatile enough for black tie...
So those are my dressy Rolex--now show me yours!
All the best,
