    He has others, including a lovely GP chrono in a cushion case, but this question was specific to his Rolex collection.

    Interesting. Lagging Rolex deliveries resulted me getting the new 5 year warranty but didn't realize reading the Hodinkee article that I also got the green tag. Had to check, so apparently a double-whammy here, too. Does run pretty accurately, though.

    I'd keep:

    Sea Dweller
    Daytona
    Oysterquartz
    GMT Master

    I could come up with a whole bunch of solid reasons why I'd do so, but TBH it all comes down to "I like the way they look" and "there's no overlap that way".

    100% agreed with Apropos. My rational is personal preference plus differentiation.

    Thought I'd take a quick version of those CM style watch/shoe/sock whatever pics for the new thread. Except wearing SW&D.

    Cyc, when you picked up your Pepsi it made me rethink where I was going with my next watch purchase. Looks great.

    Nice job mimo on the faqs and starting this new thread. I was mostly a lurker but occasionally a poster on the old thread. Anyway here is my contribution to keep this going. Random wrist shot taken yesterday. [​IMG]

    Amazing collection. I'd keep the Daytona, GMT, Sub and a Quartz.

    I am in the market for a new watch and wanted SF's thoughts on the options below. I plan to wear it with navy/charcoal suits at work and also use it for casual wear. I am in my late 20's, working in finance in NYC and looking for something classy yet sleek/modern. My budget is ~$7,000, which is a limit not a goal (if no significant style/quality difference then I would go for the cheaper option).

    I am deciding between the Rolex Oyster Perpetual and the Omega Aqua Terra. I am also including a trio of long shots in case they get some love: a Baume et Mercier (my 3rd option), a Tag Heuer and a Movado, which I like it but might be too casual and designed for younger people.


    Which one would you prefer and why?
