    I like the gaudy "gold" ones that cost less than 200 RMB, disposable bling,

    Y-series Rolex GMT Master II (w/ lug holes) on Oyster Bracelet with "Coke" bezel. Why? Because I've worn it everyday for the last 9 years and it's taken some pretty serious abuse and it's tiny mechanical heart reliably beats on... I use to wear an Omega Seamaster Professional before I picked up my Rolex I still have it and everyday when I go to my watch box I ask myself why would I want to wear an Omega with an ETA movement made from low grade 316 stainless steel that looked totally destroyed after 2 years of continuous wear when I can wear a Rolex with an in-house movement made from over-the-top 904 stainless steel.

    very short thread

    well, I think most of 'sport' lines of Rolex would stand the apocalypse, still I take my bet on SubC with black bezel

    It would likely be the sea dweller, but I hate the new ceramic bezels on most of the sports watches.

    The Milgauss looks good in black. I don't really have a specific favorite but I'd love a Rolex that's silver or stainless-steel, with a cloth band and a Pepsi bezel.

    Two-tone Datejust with a Jubilee band. Classic and elegant.

    For sporty, a stainless/black GMT Master.

    My black Milgauss with orange markers. My next one will be the White Datejust II. I am a non-bling guy - no diamonds, gold, etc. Although, I am okay with the White Gold bezel on the DJ II! [​IMG]

    I've got a Day-Date and DEEPSEA but... that new Sky Dweller is totally insane.

    My GMT Master (Pepsi) gets the most wrist time of my small watch collection. Works great for business and for outdoors, weekends etc.
