    Give me a 1680, 16610 or 16800 over a PO for the collectibility value but if it is against a modern sub, I will take the PO

    Re: Why do YOU prefer a PO over a Rolex Submariner?

    I was conflicted - now I'm good with a 2500 PO.

    But along the way I had a 16610 - sold it when I could no longer abide the cyclops. And a 14060m - sold it when I couldn't adjust to no date.

    And then there was the "social" aspect. There is literally no situation in my life where having someone notice I had a Rolex was a positive thing. Actually, there is one - my wife loves hers and would be happy if I wore one. But peers, contractors, suppliers, friends, family (other than spouse!) - I'm sorry, but I cannot see any situation where having a Rolex would convey a positive outcome to me. Quite the opposite.

    I have desired a SubC, I entertain thoughts of flipping my entire collection and purchasing a SubC, but every time I physically look at one, I don't get the longing that I feel when I see it on watchrecon or magazine photos...weird! Consequently, every time I gaze at my PO, I fall in love with it all over again....but I still desire a SubC and still entertain thoughts of getting one...weird!

    I prefer the Sub Date or Hulk over the PO.

    Until this thread I never realized how out of proportion the sub bracelet is to the case....

    That was my point with those pics, but we only hear about the thickness of the PO on here, there's good and bad in both, It's more out of proportion to me than the so called thickness of the PO. I don't have a problem with Subs, pre Sub C,

    Don't get me wrong, five digit and especially four digit Sub references are gorgeous and iconic watches. But the new refs have to be considered as a failure.

    Could not have said it any better, I feel the same way. iv had a few rolexs but always found myself feeling uncomfortable. My PO I can wear in any situation and it's amazing watch. I do love the vintage rolexs but feel they are so over priced, it's crazy! Big bubble!

    I prefer the PO (2500, 8500) over the Subc but i prefer the pre ceramic 16610 Sub over the PO (2500, 8500). Id take any sub over the current PO's though. They are just too blingy for me with the glass finish looking dial and bezel.
