Merry Christmas for all of you!
A legit watch dealer offered me to exchange my Rolex Explorer 114270 (Year 2004) and my Omega SMP Co-Axial Ceramic (Year 2012) - both watches are in excellent form - with a brand new Rolex Submariner 114060 (no date version). Perhaps I would only add a few bucks as part of the purchase.
Both Omega and Rolex, in my opinion, are two of the best respected and top watchmaker companies. So, for all Omega lovers, I never think that the SMP Ceramic is far away outclassed by the Submariner. I know the SMP is a top notch diver watch. But in my case, it's just because I can get the watch I always dream about.
What makes the situation more difficult is that my Explorer is the 36mm version - which I think would attract many watch lovers in the future. So, in my humble opinion, not mentioning its robust quality, this Explorer should be a keeper. If I can choose, however, I would prefer to only have 1 Rolex and 1 diver watch in my collection.
Do appreciate input and advice from you - I believe many WUS members do have experience and deeper knowledge than me. BTW, I do not post this in Rolex forum as I think I would tend to get more subjective opinions.. :)
Cheers and have a great day!
