I own a blue fluted 116234 DJ with jubilee. I love the look and size of the watch. The issue is that I don't wear it much as I think it's too blingy for my work environment. I figure I can save it for parties and dressier occasions. The problem is that I don't attend many of those. Still, everyone should own a DJ . . . right? I've thought about selling it and buying another one later, but mine comes with the railroad track at the edge of the dial, the roulette wheel, and the jubilee with the hidden clasp. The newer ones don't have that combo of features.
I recently purchase a blue SkyFall AT in the 38.5mm size. The size is great, although perhaps a bit thicker than perfect. The watch has been spot on, maybe losing .5 seconds per day. The 8500 movement is gorgeous and is perhaps a better movement than what is in most Rolexes. This fits my daily work style better so I wear it with polos or a long sleeve and chinos.
I do not own a true dress watch as I don't have much need for one. The only other watch I own that would come close to this category is a silver dialed Rolex 1601 DJ from 1975. But that wears much differently than the newer ones. Besides that I own mostly tool watches - Sub, Speedy, 2264.50 which is the Ray Donovan watch, etc.
My questions is should I keep both the blue Skyfall and blue DJ or are they too redundant? If I keep both, I may need to move something else. The watches in red are not going anywhere so that only leaves the Speedy which is a good watch but I find a bit boring at times. Would knowing that last fact change your decision at all? This is a tough one for me as I love both watches so I could use some other opinions/viewpoints.
The 2 watches in question are pictured below.
