I like Rolex sub model, but there are too many design knock offs. Â Seiko and even Fossile make watches look very close to the Sub. Â If I was to pay $5000US for machnical watch, I would buy very unique styled ones.
Unfortunately, it is very hard to find a uniquely styled Rolex, I too am a fan of Rolex, and yes there are many knock offs out there, however, I believe, regardless of the fakes, to own one is maybe a bit of a prestige thing, and at the same time, a style issue. I like the bit of bling offered in the styling of a Rolex, yet I hate a wantabee. My favorites are a list of the Rolex norms, S/G Datejust, S/G Sub w/ blue face, and the Yachtsman w/Platinum dial. In Europe there are so many styles of Rolex available that are difficult to find in the states, and many of these offer contemporary styling that most would not realize are Rolex. I do love however for a dress watch this simple Rolex, that mnay would never guess being on an arm is Rolex.
I will continue to dream until I can get one of these.
