    Why do YOU prefer a PO over a Rolex Submariner?

    The Sub is a great choice too. I prefer my PO. To each his own. OP try out both and see which one you end up with. I prefer my PO because I prefer it aesthetically and the Rolex name brand brings lots of attention regardless of where you are and in some cases unwanted attention. I don't like that for me. I prefer to be low key while still having those few on occasion recognize the PO and make a comment from time to time. I also don't like the cyclops. If I were to get a Rolex down the road it'd probably be a Deepsea.

    So to reiterate, two watchmakers picked Rolex and none of them picked Omega.

    My gut still wins, Rolex is king, thats why it has a crown on the dial.
    Ha. Whatever you say. If anyone's a fanboy here it's you: the guy who resurrected an old thread to refute his own comment. I should probably roll my eyes again, right? Crossing over from Rolex to Omega where to start - Page 6

    I love Rolex. I just love Omega more AND I think Rolex prices are a joke. Omega's are too, but slightly used or grey and things start to make sense. It's the fanboys who insist on either or. As many astute and reasonable watch lovers here point out: both have much to be loved. Again, boils down to preference, not some objective superiority.

    You get more for your money with omega, for me Rolex are to small, if I'm paying over £5000 for a watch, i want it to have presence, Rolex are just to common and there are plenty of good homage subs like steinhart with ceramic bezels so no as much as Rolex are a good watch just for me overpriced.

    You just can't argue with pics, I wouldn't swap out either of these POs I own for a Sub.

    On pure looks alone the PO to me just seems sleeker than a Rolex Sub. I liked them so much I ended up with four!!

    Cheers

    When I gave my preference and the reasons for my preference I was told not to say things with my gut feeling and provide stats, so I mentioned the 904L steel, Rokex's metal foundry, etc. At that someone rolled their eyes and called it fanboy fantasies, so I mentioned an article where respectable watchmakers picked Rolex. Then the watchmakers were faulted for picking Daytona because its not for $10,000. When that was clarified ...... well here we are come back a complete circle.

    It is very cool for Omega fanboys to give their preference and reasons for their preference, but god forbid if someone gives an opposing opinion, then they have to provide stats or eyes are rolled numerous times, watchmakers are faulted for picking Daytonas, damn the plain english the article was written in.

    Did I say I dislike my Grand Seiko, IWC, Corum, Jaques Droz and older Omegas, no I did not. Infact I think Grand Seiko is much like Rolex. But the new ones like the planet ocean and aqua terra that I have spent money on are all marketing success and zero substance. Omega and Rolex were equal watch makers some decades ago. New Omegas are less than Rolexes wether old or new.

    Insert rolling eyes here.

    Rolex's steel and the preference of two celebrity watch makers aren't "stats." Rolex's steel may be nicer, but it's hardly a major factor. It's not like Omega's cases are poorly made. Who cares if those guys mentioned Rolex? Do you really think that is a definitive point?

    Again, i love Rolex! I'd buy more if I thought they were worth the money. You seem determined to "prove" Omega is decidedly inferior in quality. That is just not true, in my opinion.
