I say SubC for sure. It's just amazing though the BLNR is hot too.

Sub no date is nice as is the standard model. Personally I chose LV and love it. The Sub is incredibly well built.

Sorry I am assuming the following:
Subc = Submariner
BLRN = Black, red, navy
LV = ?

SubC = submariner with (black) ceramic bezel insert;

BLNR = GMT (ref.: 116710) with black/blue bezel insert;

LV = submariner with green bezel insert and green dial. 

 

Or, at least, that the assumption I've had for a while.

Thanks for that info! Definitely BLNR or SubC. Just cant decide from an aesthetic point of view which one I like better.

Just put them both on and get the one that sings smile.gif

The BLNR has polished center links that are more dressy and prone to scratches if that matters.

But the dial is probably more subtle and versatile than green. I find the green awesome because it goes from almost black to emerald in different light.

The SubC also has the glidlock clasp which allows for micro adjustments though the GMT clasp is no slouch.

Would you rather own a plane (BLNT) or a yacht (Sub)? In all seriousness, blue gmt is the hottest right now and is more noticeable. The sub is timeless and a touch more discreet.

Yeah, can't really go wrong J. Try them all and see which one you like the most.

BLNR is ok..

Two modern day future classics...Win win either way.

Plus, it likely won't be your last watch purchase wink.gif

also it was a nice way to get some wrist porn lol.

I think both are gorgeous in their own element, I guess I can give the fiancee those choices and let her decide
post #45686 of 48312
It's a win-win situation in my book. Both are fantastic pieces.
post #45687 of 48312
How about a JLC Deep Sea (European dial)? Sorry I find nothing appealing with modern Subs/GMTs.

Yes.  This approach will get you a great watch, and also a good start to your married life.  Giving her the choice is the secret to your happiness in all things!

Not to muddle the waters, but since you're in SF, you should check out these guys:

I've personally bought four watches from them. They have a great selection and pretty fair prices. If you're open to a vintage piece and it doesn't have to be ceramic, then they might have something you dig.
