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

    I've thought about this post for a few days since I first came across it and I realize I've been thinking about it wrong. The question suggests comparing the two in a vacuum. Life isn't in a vacuum. The reality is that the value proposion is such that for equivalent dollars I can have a PO AND a Black bay. Or a PO AND a Pelagos. Or an Aqua Terra. Or an Oris. Or an SMPc. This realization changes the entire value conversation for me.

    Don't like either of the modern subs or POs. That's why I have a 16610 (with lug holes - very important) and a PO 2500 ;)

    Not sure if I understand your point, sorry. You can compare an infinite number of things then. This topic is a very straightforward one.

    I think think what I've learned from everyone is that the Submariner has more desirability and resell value. Some find it and more comfortable because it's less bulky than the PO. I agree with these points. BUT THAT AWESOME ANTI-GAUSS THOUGH!! I hope they come out with that feature on their smaller models like the SMPc.

    I like the PO. Especially the PO GMT. To me, its a more distinctive watch than a Sub. No arguing the Sub is iconic, but it's like a entry level luxury car that everyone has.

    What kind of car would the PO be then? A hummer?

    Me? PO. Simply because even with 39.5 is almost toooooo big for my tiny 6" wrist.

    The Sub has a fantastic bracelet which is useless to me anyway. I prefer wearing my sports watches on leather or rubber and this is why I chose the PO. I haven't seen a maxicase Rolex that looks good on rubber or even leather. Those ugly lugs are designed to look good on the OEM bracelet and not much else. It's a one-trick pony. The modern Sub is not iconic in my eyes. It's a big mistake.
