    Help me choose my next watch

    Hi guys,

    Looking for some opinions here. I currently have a Rolex Datejust with a blue dial and Roman numerals as my only watch at the moment and am wanting to start saving up to get another piece sometime in the next year. Currently between three watches and was wondering which one you would pick between the three if you were in my situation.

    Here are the three I’m thinking about at the moment: Rolex Sub date, Zenith El Primero (tri-color), and the new Tudor Pepsi GMT.

    Let me which one you would pick, and feel free to make other suggestions. Preferably sub-$7000.

    Thanks!

    For holding value, the Rolex, for looks, I love Zenith. Alternatives, Panerai Radiomir or 1940 are both really nice, IMHO. IWC Portuguese, gorgeous, those also seem to do decent in holding their value, these are of course buying pre-owned.

    I'm the type that, if I have one brand of watch, one of the first things I think about re: getting another watch is to select a different brand. YMMV, of course, but the El Primero and the Tudor look great, so that's how I would go.

    Zenith El Primero but one that has got no date.

    Perhaps a Zenith Heritage 146 or a Zenith Classic Chronograph?

    I love the Sub, but it's honestly a bit boring. Great watch, will hold its value and never let you down, but everyone and their mother have one.

    As far as the Tudor GMT and the Zenith, I'd personally pick the Tudor. I'm a fan of the Pepsi bezel, and the Zenith has looked a bit cartoonish to me when I've seen the current ones in person.

    I would get the Zenith as a second watch, it doesn't fit well with everything IMO. But I do think it's the most interesting watch of the three.

    For the other two, it depends on whether I would value the GMT functionality.

    The GMT. Rolex is common and boring, and I am not a fan of how Zenith subdials crowd each other.

    That Zénith is not the nicest in their collection.
    I don’t like Tudor ( looks too much like Rolex IMO)
    The sub is the best choice.

    Take a look at some Panerai : they can be cheaper, and they are far less common than Rolex and Tudor.

    I would go with the Zenith as something altogether different than the Datejust. And it's a beauty too

    I was considering a Panerai as well but ultimately think most of the models would be too big on my 6.75” wrist. Currently leaning towards the zenith.
