    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.
