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.

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.

Out of those two models I agree for the same reasons.

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.

I like those things, it's the siZe of the bezel numbers and the pcls that irk me.

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.

Yep, I travel but all continental U.S., don't dive either though....

I bought a GMT, personally. But it was never a choice between a GMT and a Sub. It was a matter of which GMT watch to buy, because I frequently need to track multiple time zones. I went with the Rolex reluctantly, but they invented the GMT function so their example pretty much optimizes it. And it's also beautiful and very functional.

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!

I 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.

I absolutely agree for me I think of sub for monochromatic divers GMT looks best with a pepsi, coke, or blnr bezels.

Yeah, but I like it best when its combined with the jubilee, and the super jubilee is the best in my opinion.

@dddrees - you've posted these pics before. And you can post them over and over again. :nodding:

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.

+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.
