    I choose to keep the Shogun and say good bye SMPc...

    Its time to say good bye to the SMPc. Its going to a home where it will be well appreciated. I been thinking about this for a long time. For the last few months every time I'm in the mood to wear a sport/diver I do not even think about the SMPc and grab the Shogun. I'm the type that likes to take a watch off right after I get home as it just bothers me having it on the wrist too long. In all the years of collecting the Shogun is the only watch I can leave on 24/7, sleeping with it on and everything without getting annoyed and thinking I wore this watch all day time to take it off. Its just so light and comfortable I almost forget its on at times. The fit and finish is incredible for a watch at this price range, even though some say its overpriced I think quite the opposite. Despite being a few times the price of the Shogun, SMPc just doesn't feel as special to me. It will be missed but I'm certain I won't regret it. I had a thread a long time ago about the Seamaster logo on the case back and strangely it irritated my wrist. I never had that issue with any watch before. Wearing it on NATO solves this problem but I want to wear the bracelet at times and its just distracting feeling the rough logo on the case back. I have very sensitive skin so I realize this isn't a problem for everyone although I did hear of a few complaints about this from other SMPc owners. That was a huge factor in selling it. The funds from selling it will be put aside towards a nice purchase in 2015. The excitement is getting to me already. Here's a few farewell pics. I have to say the SMPc was quite a looker but if its not comfortable that just doesn't cut it...

    If anyone has sensitive skin, likes a larger sport/diver watch but finds the weight distracting, I highly recommend this guy.

    The Rolex is starting to feel a little uncomfortable as its starting to get more and more surround by Seikos in the watch box

    Well as I always say,"If it does not fit, do not commit."...
    Got a replacement in mind?

    Funny how that happens when you get a watch or two that you aspired to....the "affordables" get more wrist time. That's happened to me too with my Seiko SSC, baby tuna and monster getting the nod more frequently after getting my GO.

    If the Rolex gets too uncomfortable around your Shogun and GS, send her on to me, I'll take good care of her! Better yet, make her comfortable and send me the GS...yeah, that's it!

    Possibly a Sub C or Speedy 9300! The sterile smooth case backs of Rolex are a joy to wear. Very comfortable.

    Man the black SMPc is gorgeous. But comfort certainly comes first. Plus as you said, the SMP will provide a nice boost to the pool for your next purchase.

    I have actually owned the reverse of your duo, a Sumo and a SMP Ti. Both are gone but I only miss one of them.



    The SubC is terrific and would be my pick over the 9300, especially considering wearability. What are you thinking if you go that route: date or no date?

    Can't knock you for choosing the Seiko over the Omega as I would almost certainly have made the same choice.

    Interesting. Much prefer the look of the omega to the shogun. But if it's not comfortable to you, then it's not worth wearing.

    I love the cyclops, I know many don't. For me its part of the Rolex DNA so it would be a date sub

    I could go either way. I like the clean simplicity of the no date, but like you also feel like the cyclops belongs on a Sub.
