    Decided to be a two watch guy: Rolex Sub AND....?

    I was really starting to get into this hobby again, making lists of watches I want, I've already flipped a couple I purchased over the last year.

    But lately I've been doing some soul searching and I honestly think my sweet spot is 2 watches. With just one I keep getting the temptation to buy another, but anything more than two and it starts feeling excessive. Indeed in the past I've always been happiest when I'm rotating two watches.

    So, I already have one of the two I want : The Sub 16610. So I just want to add one more, and I think I'll be set. Here's a bit of a short-list of the candidates:

    (1) JLC Master Control
    (2) Rolex DJ
    (3) Speedmaster Pro
    (4) Omega SMPc
    (5) Rolex Explorer

    Which one would be a good complement to the Sub, and make a decent two-watch combo?

    Feel free to offer additional candidates as well, thanks.

    Yes, I'd say Speedmaster Professional. If you tend to dress formally a little more often, I'd go with the Master Control.

    I'm also gravitating towards a 2 watch collection with a Sub and ...

    my 'and' will be the Stowa Marine Chono, I think it will compliment my new SubC nicely and is basically a polar opposite with it being chrono, white dial, leather strap, exhibition back, German

    Should be shipping out soon and expected to arrive next week, I'll be selling off the remainder and we'll see how it goes!

    Out of your list I'd opt for the JLC

    Also the best part about a 2 watch collection is that if it doesn't work out you just buy more watches!

    My immediate thought before I read anything was Explorer. But JLC is a great choice if you like leather (I prefer bracelets).
