    I forgot to add the part that he (my dad's friend) is refusing to accept money. He comes from old money, like I said he was wearing a PP 5296r and was very pleased to have someone to talk watches with. My dad said jokingly it was the only reason he came!

    The Jaeger my father received from my mother oh..20 years ago. Still a beautiful watch and looks brand new. Who knows, maybe it will get passed on.

    That's the everlast classic and design still looks up-to-date (thanks JLC [​IMG]).

    Maybe too small for current watch trend but clearly recognizable from 10m.

    Can't really say I like this. What's with the miniscule crown?

    What would you all suggest as a first watch? I'm deciding between the black two toned sub and the blue two toned sub. What do you all think?

    What is wrong with two tones? What would you suggest I get instead? I'm only considering a submariner. I like the two toned because I think a plain band with black face is boring and cheap looking but a full yellow gold submariner is too showy/gaudy. What do you suggest?

    Edit: I really like the pepsi faced sub, but my best friend has that and I don't want to buy the same one as he has.

    Screams of nouveau riche. For a first watch, I'd get something more universal and less showy/tacky/brash.

    Do you limit your choices just Rolexes?

    I've always wanted the sub. But I'm also thinking about a Panerai luminor but I'd really like the sub first.

    There are tons of great watches out there. Spend some time on Timezone and/or the Purists. May cost you a bit, but your mind will expand.

    I don't usually go for Rolex but this one is fantastic.
