    Get the snowflake! It is the most unique of the 3 you mentioned, and by far the most accurate. I assume you understand what the Spring Drive is (vs a "pure" mechanical); if you are fine with that, then get it and enjoy the amazing sweep of the seconds hand.
    Rolex and Zenith are great too, of course, but so much more common.
    Snowflake will probably be my next watch, btw. . .

    totally agree :D
    Hey, don't use my words against me

    Seriously though, if the markers hands were silver the watch would look a million times better.

    Edited to add that that Zenith belongs in a Circus act.

    The Rolex is hard to beat.

    I'm a Nomos fanboy, so you know what I'm going to recommend...the Rolex. That Datejust is so well done (sporty and dressy) and so good for a one-watch guy. I love that Snowflake, and of course love the Nomos options, but in this match up it has to be the Rolex and it's not even close.

    Five pages of advice. You should've just kept the Speedy and none of this would matter. lol.

    I'm going with the DJ. It's versatile (pool/beach to boardroom) and it'll last forever, especially for a "one watch guy". Doesn't hurt that servicing it should be the least expensive too.
