    If I need to add my the First EVER Rolex to my Collection (And stop for 3 years)...

    ...What Will It Be?

    I'm looking for adding a First Rolex to my Collection (But I have to stop buying Rolex watch for the next 2-3 years) so What should I buy that I won't regret next 2-3 years?
    ( Plz Don't tell me buy anything I like because I like alot, if I have enough money I will buy 2-3 Rolex at the same time!!!)

    First Rolex I purchased was a vintage GMT-Master. If I had it to do over again I would now buy a Rolex Sub no date. Any sport Rolex you will be happy with.

    What styles to you like? What size? Diver? GMT? etc. What is your budget? Why does it have to be a Rolex? It seems as if you want a Rolex for the name alone, which is your prerogative, but doesn't seem like the best way to buy a watch you are going to wear for a long time.

    What's currently in your collection?

    Sub is the easy answer here but may not be the right one. Maybe you have all black dialed watches (then get a polar explorer ii or colorfully-dialed OP). Maybe you have all sport watches (get a dressier datejust). Maybe you have all divers (get an Explorer).

    Not enough info in your post to really give a good rec.

    Start off with a DJ. It’s a sort of multipurpose watch that will see you your next purchase.

    DJ 126300 with oyster bracelet. Pick your color. I'm partial to blue, myself.

    Slightly dress, easy day to day wear, less showy and not as noticeable - OP39

    Same as above but more into sporty-casual territory - Exp I

    The entry into sports watches - Sub ND, Sub Date if you MUST have a date window

    If you travel to different timezones and feel a GMT is useful - Exp II if you can handle the 42mm case or GMT II

    Grandpa's watch - Datejust

    Just feel like waiting for 2-3 years on a list - Daytona

    Heck thats pretty much their line up

    EDIT:I am only referring to new watches

    I'd have to go with an Explorer II! I would also seriously consider an OP 39 or a Datejust.

    Depends on your wrist size. Difficult to go wrong with a 39mm Explorer 1.
