    We shall see. I’ve hidden the scale until 8/1. As far as grilling...use it while I can, because here in Chicago, the weather will turn on a dime. To put that in perspective, my local liquor store just received their last shipment of Shiner Ruby for the summer. Winter is coming.

    I know what you mean. 30 years ago I used to own the home on the 8th tee of the Lincolnshire Country Club.

    Strange looking ceramic--looks fake. Did you put a ceramic bezel on something else?

    Inner dials on real 116500 have white, not black. See below.

    Nothing fake, my 116500LN was originally the black dial. Had to spend a lot of time tracking down an OEM brand new Rolex 116519LN Oysterflex Dial silver sunburst dial, and had it put it on my DaytonaC. Absolutely love it, silver is my color

    My modern 6263, my way :)

    It is a 116500, black dial ceramic Daytona. Just swapped black dial for the silver off of the 116519, and now I have something even harder to obtain/duplicate :) Prefer the color/metallic look of the silver to the black & white, and full black subdials to the silver subdial rings as well. Rolex does not making finding these dials, especially brand new, easy...

    If you want to paint it neon pink and cover it in chocolate sprinkles....Your money, your watch, tell anyone who doesn’t like it to go bother somebody else.

    Agreed and I’m wearing my pimped out president today, although I kept the original bezel and dial.
