    Help me find my next watch.

    I am slowing down my rate of purchase so the purchase is planned for 1-5 years from now but I need some help in identifying a goal to work towards.

    Some requirements
    • Watch has to be a modern take on a classic design
    • Not necessary a dive watch but it has to have some sort of a bezel
    • Between 38-41mm
    • No Date or Date at 6.
    • 100m WR or more.
    • Not considering a watch with complications at the moment but willing to consider a chronograph.
    • Quality of fit and finish has to be between Rolex to JLC's level or better.


    I have identified these two as potential choices but I would like to know if there are others with that meet the requirements.

    Jaeger LeCoultre Tribute to Deep Sea Alarm - Limited issue so it is rather rare to source for one.


    Rolex Submariner 114060 - Slightly too common.


    Appreciate your inputs

    What about the new Speedmaster 1957?

    I love that jlc. The Sub doesn't do much for me.

    both are solid choices and you can't go wring with either. the JLC is the less beaten path choice and the rolex is the mainstream chouce. personally i'd get the sub.

    If you want a diver, any variation of the JLC Deep Sea is definitely the way to go if you want to have a unique retro cool piece.

    The JLC is at least two classes above the current Submariner, more refined, more elegant, more watch.

    I think it is nice alternative but it would be a little too close to the Speedmaster Pro.

    The Rolex Explorer comes to mind as a candidate. 39mm, no date, 100m water resistance, and history in spades.
