No the Panerai is definitely not dressy but I currently own two modern SS Rolex watches so am looking for something with a leather strap and slim profile.
I've never been a big Panerai fan (though they look great on some people) but the 337 and 512 Rads look really nice to me in photos.
The Reverso sang to me and I've been wanting a JLC for a while but am just curious how the Panerai will look in person and if it still interests me.post #43908 of 483125/31/15 at 5:03amQuote:Originally Posted by dsn112
If you could only have one of these which one and why? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Gmt for me.
For one thing all the little extra bits with regards to the GMT make it a better looking watch. The green GMT hand, the 24 hour bezel, and the date window with cyclops which is classic Rolex. I also like having the date on most of my watches.post #43909 of 483125/31/15 at 5:09amQuote:
Out of those two models I agree for the same reasons.post #43910 of 483125/31/15 at 5:12am
I disagree for the same reasons. :)
I prefer the cleaner look of no date, and don't like the green second hand much. For me, the standard Sub is the quintessential sporty Rolex (and the plain Oyster the less sporty). Not that I dislike the GMT, but in that one I have a kinky desire for the gold and steel one on a shabby strap. Gold nipples FTW.post #43911 of 483125/31/15 at 5:13ampost #43912 of 483125/31/15 at 5:21am
Since you're asking, I guess it can be safe to assume that you could do without the GMT function (I know I could). Of those two I would definitely keep the sub, as it's my favourite Rolex sports model (well, its previous incarnations, but still). The only GMTs I really like are the Pepsies.post #43913 of 483125/31/15 at 5:28ampost #43914 of 483125/31/15 at 6:16am
If I were into diving, the sub would be in contention for that function. But I'm more of the mind to look for a watch that fulfills a particular role or function, rather than one from a particular brand. Surprise surprise, Rolex is as good as they say!post #43915 of 483125/31/15 at 6:54amI don't see the point of a black bezel GMT. It is too Sub like for me. I love the Rolex GMT, but it MUST have a bicolor bezel to differentiate itself from the sub. So for that particular choice, I'll go Sub.post #43916 of 483125/31/15 at 6:57amQuote:
I absolutely agree for me I think of sub for monochromatic divers GMT looks best with a pepsi, coke, or blnr bezels.post #43917 of 483125/31/15 at 7:08ampost #43918 of 483125/31/15 at 7:46amQuote:

Thank you sir.
That's good, because my picture taking skills aren't all that good.
Sure helps to have a great subject to work with.post #43920 of 483125/31/15 at 7:57am+1 always loved that pic, ddd.
And as far as the Sophie's choice above, I believe I would go Sub. Even though it's ubiquitous.
(Hint: there's a very good reason for that!)
But if I truly had to have the GMT function-- then for me, I'd pick the so-called Batman version.
