    Why do YOU prefer a PO over a Rolex Submariner?

    Everyone's got their opinion and I'm just curious about yours.

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

    I'm leaning towards a PO for its master co-axial movement and 15,000 gauss protection. My Seamaster diver 300 ceramic has been magnetized 3 times in one year. It'll either gain or lose a minute a day until I go to a shop to have it demagnetized. After that, it goes back to COSC standards. I think because of all of the badge readers and metal detectors in all of the buildings in D.C..

    I preferred a PO til I sold mine and got a SubC.

    Nothing but respect for the iconic Submariner, but I prefer the PO.

    Had both. The Subc is a fantastic watch and better finished than the 2500 PO. However, I love my PO and it brings a much bigger smile to my face.

    I have a Sub date, 16610, which I never plan to sell. I've had three POs, sold one and still have two, but they are not a patch on the Sub for wearability, versatility or, in honesty, desirability.

    POs are great, but its no contest.
    1990 Roamer 200m diver, Quartz
    1991 Tag Heuer GMT quartz
    1998 Omega Seamaster SMP SOLD
    1999 Rolex Submariner date. The one.
    2007 Omega Planet Ocean XL on rubber, SOLD in 2016
    2010 Seiko Monster Black Seiko Monster Orange, Strela mechanical
    2011 Skyland Avenger Blacksteel SOLD Rolex Daytona stainless ( for three days...) Rolex Explorer 2 bought from a friend in 2011, SOLD back to the same guy in 2013!
    2012 Rolex Explorer. Nice, understated watch for any occasion.
    2013 Omega Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition Omega SMP , 1999 model Omega Planet Ocean 42mm 2500D on bracelet
    2014 Skagen ..why? Obris Morgan Predata, black as can be..Helberg CH6. Stainless with stainless bezel, SOLD Obris Morgan Predata, blasted finish Raven Deeptech, SOLD, Bombfrog SOLD
    2015 Steinhart Ocean Black. Unreliable.
    2016 Steinhart T500. Unreliable
    2017 Bulova Moonwatch, 2017. SOLD to a man in Estonia.Doxa 1200T Caribbean, Longines Legend Diver, date. Seiko Turtle, Pepsi/Rubber, Seiko Turtle PADI.
