Fellow YouTuber Casey Neistat (4.2 million subs/1 BILLION views) sports a classic size Datejust with a white dial on a black Everest rubber strap. Model 116200, 36mm, stick dial, all steel with a smooth bezel. Powered by an automatic caliber 3135. The wristshot pics here are from when he recently took a spill off his Boosted Board and his watch stopped working. Ironically, this comes only a few weeks after we left a comment on one of his videos jokingly saying “You can’t break a Rolex, Casey!” We were wrong. It totally stopped ticking. The Story Behind Casey’s Rolex Casey used to wear a watch that he considered unbreakable (a white Casio G-Shock), which is why he wore it. “I don’t have nice things, because I break everything.” But then his wife’s parents got him a Rolex watch as a wedding present. For his birthday a year later, his wife (Candice) got him a rubber “G-Shock-esque band” for his Datejust. “So, it doesn’t bounce, it doesn’t jingle. Like I really can’t break a rubber band. And all the sudden what was once way too precious for me becomes a fairly practical wristwatch.” Casey wanted it in white. Something that would “be all dirty and f*cked up looking and gross”. So in February 2016, Mike from Everest Horology Products sent him a custom made white strap for free. He installed it on camera, but in later videos he went back to the black… probably because the white one was on a tang buckle. “I just want to say it will be nothing shy of a miracle if I can install this without breaking my watch.” If you got this far, subscribe to our channel on YouTube!

Reply KeepTheTime February 22, 2017 He’s been wearing a Samsung Gear S3 lately. But it’s worth noting that he’s now working with or sponsored by Samsung. Reply Paul March 1, 2017 By the looks of it, he still didn’t get the Datejust back from Rolex.
